And to some other posters...Sex in the City is entertainment that appeals to women. It is fun and amusing and women can identify with some of the characters...big deal!
What about the shows that appeal to men? What about the "car chase shoot em up films" that glorify brutality and violence and seek to appeal to young male viewers? Are you people going to start bashing video games next...because they appeal to males and often have violent themes?
Maybe the real problem with Sex and the City is not so much that women are sleeping around, but that many of the themes revolve around the WOMEN themselves, and not just the women seeking to please men! In fact it is even MORE perverse than that...the men are often seen as there to please women! And I can see where that sort of thing could be dangerous indeed. The end is surely near.

Yes. When someone starts a thread about video games, violent moives and porn corrupting men, I'll be happy to add my two cents to that.

*sighs* I'm no fan of Sex in the City. Truth is I can't relate to their lives - A big fancy apartment in NYC, a job paying enough you can spend hundreds on shoes, multible partners, lesbian flings ect; IT IS NOT an accurate reflection of society.
However, I don't think there are any conspiracies or nefarious intentions on the part of the filmakers. It is entertainment and a lot of people are entertained by the SITC franchise.
I don't think any of the themes of the show/movie are wrong or immoral - it's a choice and I think the movie celebrates the fact that women have more choices now compared to an earlier time.
It isn't wrong, it just isn't for me..I don't judge ( ok, I judge a little, but I'm only human!)

This thread reminded me about a Family Guy episode where Brian watches Sex in the City and he says "so this show is about three hookers and their mom?"
Pretty much sums it up.
yet these are being pushed as idols onto women and a new generation..with i think negative implications such as women avoiding monogamy, sleeping around etc etc So what does this mean?

shows/movies like Sex in the City absolutely train young women to act/think and plan their lives to emulate these women.
The makers of shows like this don't have an agenda? They absolutely have an agenda. They have a seething hatred for traditional femininity.
