Sex and the City—I Don’t Get It

No pun intended with the headline.

Sex and the City opens in theaters this Friday, as I'm sure you very well know. Women around the country are behaving like geeks do over Star Trek and Lord of the Rings in anticipation. I just hope they aren't hyping themselves up for a big let down. I believe that great television shows should end as just that. Which is why I hope a Sopranos movie is never made.

Women get Carried away.

I was a fan of the television show. That's right. I'm not afraid to say it. I usually like most HBO series. But I probably watched Sex and the City for reasons different than women did. I didn't watch it for the friendship the cast portrayed, the witty banter, the fashion, or the trends the show sparked. I watched it because I liked the sex scenes. Man Law. I was, after all, a teenager when the show debuted, and I followed it through my college years.

The same reason that I, as a man, enjoyed the show differently than most women (though I'm sure many women enjoyed those scenes as well) is the reason why we men can't go with women to see the movie. And I don't think they want us to. They want to go with their girlfriends. They want to make it a girls night out. Who are we to come between a woman and her SATC?

There are group screenings and movie parties planned all around Charlotte. Some are women-invited only. But there is an "afterparty" that will bring the sexes together (who would've thought there'd be an afterparty for a movie). The event, dubbed The Sex and the City After Affair, takes place Friday, 9 p.m.-1 a.m., at LIV, which is the bottom level of HOM nightclub (116 W. 5th St.). There will be movie-inspired drinks and special giveaways. Plus, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Metrolina Aids Project, which I think is very responsible of the event organizers. Because we all know that the Sex and the City cast behaved as if STDs didn't exist.

So ladies, go and enjoy your movie and your time with your girls. And I guess we men will just have to kill time at the gentlemen's clubs until you're done. Man Law.
