Storyline

Carrie meets Miranda's ex Skipper, a sweet guy who is getting desperate as all women seem to turn him down in favor of jerks - like Kevin, the bossy colleague Miranda is dating right then. When she confesses this to her friends, this contradiction bugs her too. Sam declares monogamy fits none of them, as its high expectations are never met. To everyone's surprise, Charlotte takes that advice to the extreme, double-dating two fine men - till they find out and walk out on her together. After a few lonely weeks without Big, Carrie invites John, her dependable rebound-lover just-for-sex who always repairs her self-esteem, and wonders why she never tried committing to him, so the next time they actually go out for dinner, which only proves their conversation is as uninspiring as their sex is enjoyable; the following movie is their last date ever.

The one where Samantha is motivated to pleasure herself by the sounds and actions of her neighbors!
20 May 2008 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "SATC" episode from season 2 which is rightfully and raunchily titled "The F--- Buddy" is a lesson that goes to show using someone for sex just doesn't work into a meaningful relationship! Here we see the gal pals playing the field just trying to prove that it seems they are just dating the same people over and over again. So each decide to spice it up with new excitement as Carrie just fresh from a break up with Mr. Big tries to make an honest way of love with an old buddy yet it proves just to be for sex. Charlotte messes up by over-booking dates, and Miranda dumps her angry attorney boyfriend proving even if sex is good if you don't have nothing in common it doesn't work. And finally in Samantha's cozy apartment she overhears her neighbors love making sounds and moans thru her wall and this motivates Samantha to pleasure herself! Now she considers engaging in a threesome with them, but once she views the couple her mind changes. This proves you can't get satisfaction off of other peoples pleasures. Very memorable also is the scene of Kim Cattrall's Samantha lying on her bed listening to the love making sounds thru her wall in that sexy and silk flowered orange colored bra. Overall good episode that proves the lesson that using a buddy just for sex and pleasure usually ends because if nothing is found to be in common it's hopeless to lead to any love or satisfaction.
