Can women have sex like men? Samantha Jones sure thought so.
Known best as the outspoken, sex-driven, I-don’t-care-what-you-think Samantha Jones in Sex and the City, I have to admit that some of my biggest life mottos are taken from her.
Samantha is one of four single friends portrayed in the series, a proud, confident, highly sexual woman. Most of her storylines revolve around the frequent sex and brief affairs she has. She is outspoken and a self-proclaimed “try-sexual” (meaning she’ll try anything at least once). She is portrayed as brash, straightforward, highly protective of her friends and unafraid of confrontation. She also displays nonchalance toward dating and monogamy and becomes uncomfortable whenever her sexual relationships take an emotional turn. Samantha’s main love is men—many of them.
And, while her friends — and audiences — might have been taken aback by her candid perspective on sex and relationships, she may have actually been onto something.
Here are some of the top truths about life and men we’ve learned from Samantha!
Don’t be stuck on past mistakes…or relationships.
Always remember, an ex is an ex for a reason.
Because, life shouldn’t revolve around when will you meet your Ex again.
Always be honest about the look you’re trying to go for – just say it!
The most important relationship you can have is with yourself.
Monogamy isn’t always the best policy.

What “guy speak” really means…
Never conform on society’s ideas of the way you should look, feel or act
Always be honest on why you cancel your plans

The difference between men and women.
Sad, but likely true.
