Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall, embodied the revolutionary sexual freedom and independence that Sex and the City stood for when it premiered.
Starting inSex and the City took on this question through edgy plotlines about single life that were ly considered taboo for TV, and, most of all, through the character of Samantha Jones. This erotically adventurous woman in her 40s embodied the revolutionary sexual freedom and independence that Sex and the City stood for when it premiered. Sex and the City went further than any of its predecessors by showing and talking about the sex lives of complex single women over the age of I tell you, it is so refreshing to be with someone who likes to f—- outside of the box.
She purposely avoids serious relationships, mocks the idea of monogamy, and genuinely loves being independent. Typically, single female characters onscreen fall into four distinct. The first type of single female character is cynical about all romantic relationships and needs to be convinced by the right guy.
The third type is painted as an older, sexless spinster, uninterested in sex or romance, which is implied to be fitting for her years. Despite their differences, what all four of these single female character tropes have in common is that eventually they realize or admit they do want a committed, long-term relationship. Yeah, that makes me sick. In Gilmore GirlsLorelai seems like the totally self-sufficient single mom, but she admits that she worries about never having the picture-perfect life with a house and a husband.
Through following four single women over 30, the show appeared to challenge the idea that women had to settle down, but Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda notably do still end up in happy, settled relationships by around the time they hit that next milestone: their 40th birthdays. At most, their single status helped elongate the phase in which our culture deems it acceptable for women to remain single. Each woman fits loosely into a different stereotype: the heroine, the career woman, the prude, and the slut.
And as the show has aged and gained new viewers of younger generations, attitudes towards each of these character types have shifted and evolved. The way pop culture typically portrays it, by the age of 35 women need to either grow up and settle down as a wife and mother or banish themselves to life as lonely and sexless spinsters.
Samantha defies societal expectations by choosing neither of these options, proving that a single, sexually active bachelorette of any age can be happy without having to outgrow her independence or promiscuity. And when, in the movies, Samantha ultimately chooses singledom over a highly enviable, loving relationship, viewers tend to look down on and disdain this choice. The aging bachelor is a common and, sadly, far more accepted trope onscreen. The series ends with him getting married, quickly divorcing, and then finding himself as a lifelong bachelor again. Meanwhile, Samantha has 41 sexual partners.
Later in the same season, Samantha becomes truly vulnerable for the first time in her relationship with hotel magnate Richard Wright. Her willingness to be monogamous with Richard and tell him that she loves him are key milestones in her healing her emotional intimacy issues. Here Samantha begins to understand that she is capable of emotional intimacy, but her bachelorette lifestyle is actually truer to who she is.
But I love me more. But in the first Sex and the City movie, as Samantha spies on her promiscuous neighbor, she can no longer ignore her desire for her old single ways and blows up at Smith when he keeps her waiting. In the end, Samantha realizes that she has overcome her intimacy issues, but her emotionally-evolved self does not need or thrive in a monogamous relationship. I will wear whatever, and blow whomever I want, as long as I can breathe and kneel.
