If you are reading this article, there is no doubt that you have seen or heard or maybe just even a little bit familiar with the HBO hit series Sex and The City. It was a series that ran for six seasons starring Sarah Jessica Parker and it revolved around her and her friends’ sex lives. And when Sex and the City became popular, it did not only change the lives of its stars, making them household names and it didn’t only result to men and women becoming more vocal and more open minded about sex, it also brought about the popularity of sex toys and other sex related activities such as:
- Rabbit Vibrators. This is probably the one of the most popular, if not the most popular of all adult toys, which were made for women. It became popular when it aired in the episode entitled “The Turtle and The Hare,” where Charlotte became so addicted to this sex toy to a point where she never got out of the house. They became known as rabbit vibrators because it has an attachment that is used to stimulate the clitoris and it’s usually in the form of bunny ears. Essentially, they are just a certain type of sex toys. If interested, you can purchase a similar toy from Lusting sex toys store.
- Sex Tapes. Long before Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton rose to popularity because of their respective sex tapes, Samantha, the most sexually active of the four women in the series already made her own sex tape. Although she was not really a big fan of it (like most of the women perhaps?), it was something new and kind of dangerous and maybe that was the reason why she went for it.
- Kegel’s Exercises. Before Sex and the City came out, most of the women had the impression that Kegel exercises also known as pelvic floor exercise, were only for the pregnant ladies. One episode showed that Samantha was doing her Kegel exercise while eating brunch (well, it wasn’t exactly showed but she said she was doing it while they were eating) and that she does it on a daily basis to tighten and strengthen the muscles down there.
- One of the best things that might have come out from this series is the fact that it seems to have made some previously tabooed topics and activities for women cross over to a more acceptable territory. Topics such as masturbation and threesomes were openly approached by women and although it did not fully break the glass in these topics, it certainly crossed some barriers.
For women who were in their twenties, thirties and even forties between 1998 to 2004, Sex and the City became a shining beacon of light for women and their sexuality. It opened many doors and allowed women more freedom for women to discuss their sex lives without being hushed or frowned upon. The things mentioned above were only a few of the topics that raised eyebrows before but when talked about now, people only shrug and move on.
