I never really watched Sex and the City when it was on HBO. Mike Stoute is a huge fan. HUGE! I’ve heard mixed opinions on its relevance to studying the behavior of women.
Mike Stoute and others such as David Wyngant swear by the show’s ability to give insights into the female’s mind… others like Mack Tight down right despise the show.
After watching the movie (a girl I’m dating begged me to see it with her) I think that I fall right in the middle.
Although I found the movie incredibly long, predictable, and often times boring… there are a few lessons.
Lessons from the Sex and the City movie
Women love sex. Women love talking about sex. No matter how proper a women seems when she’s with you, when she’s with her female friends… she’s most likely chatting about sex at some point.
Women still want romance. Yes… you have to give them their fill of romance in the alpha male way… and yes women are guided by stronger forces like social approval… but deep down women want Prince Charming (they just want him to be kind of a dick)
Women are obsessed with fashion and clothing. I swear the girl I’m currently dating goes to the mall at least twice a week. I could go a whole year without stepping foot in a mall. But women love looking at clothes. This is one of the reasons we’ve added a bunch of fashion writers to contribute men’s fashion advice here.
Women like shitty movies. While I was bored senseless… every girl in the audience was laughing, crying, clapping during various parts of the movie. It just goes to show you that the kind of things men find entertaining are quite different than what women find entertaining.
Every girl no matter how much she swears she’s “cool” with not getting married or wants “a small wedding” is just dying for that huge ceremony to show off that diamond ring you spent 2 months pay on… never let them fool you with the “i’m not the married with children type”… They all want it. All of them.
I don’t necessarily recommend it but the Sex and the City box set will give you you’re fill of female talk… you might learn a thing or two… I really think men would enjoy the show more if one of the four women was actually hot. Sarah Jessica Parker is one ugly man. (in my opinion)
