Architect and amazing lover Jack, an ideal catch for princess Charlotte, whom she met at many disease benefits, strongly suggest a trio with another woman- the friends are divided if or how. Samantha does it with married 37-year old wine importer Ken Shear; when he tells his wife Ruth, she insists Sam participates in his fantasy, a threesome, to save her marriage. Carrie is surprised nearly everybody has trios, and startled Mr. Big is divorced, from publisher Barbara, who proves a great lady and even interested professionally in Carrie's on the spot invented novel theme -intolerable, as if she were in bed with her and Big- and tells he was the cheater! Irritated to be the only one not asked for a trio by a friend, Miranda answers a couple's threesome ad. Written by KGF Vissers

Carrie finds out that Big was married once, and that he had a threesome. Charlotte's boyfriend wants to have a threesome. Miranda feels left out because she's never been "threesome material", so she responds to a classified ad to validate her sexual appeal. Samantha becomes involved with a married man, and his wife offers to have a threesome to keep the marriage together, which Samantha declines.All of this happens in Three's A Crowd.

This was again very interesting episode. I love the scene where Carrie is putting the tie to Big and he tells that he has had a threesome with his ex-wife. The look on Carries face when she hears it is priceless. Poor Miranda feels discriminated when the other girls wouldn't want threesome with her. Luckily the couple who is looking for a sex partner is willing to give Miranda a shot. Charlotte's "boyfriend" is an ass. I knew all along that he just wanted a permission to have sex with an other woman. In Samantha's case there is the couple who is fighting with the marriage problems and she is trying to solve their problems after having slept with Ruth's husband.This was one great episode as it involved all four women in the story and not only Carrie.Aside from that,we get to explore something - having a threesome during sex- which is considered too taboo a subject for TV to explore.
