One in this comedy series about Carrie Bradshaw, a single Manhattanite who writes a popular sex-advice column for a newspaper while dishing out dating advice and dirt with her three closest friends. In this episode, Carrie finds herself in an embarrassing situation while in bed with Big. She is mortified by her actions and flees his apartment as quickly as possible. Suddenly, Carrie starts to wonder about their relationship, which she feels has hit a dry period. Miranda cannot believe Carrie is worrying about this brief dry period; she has been in a three-month drought, she says. Meanwhile, Samantha decides to give up sex after speaking to her yoga instructor. Carrie meets CharlotteÕs new boyfriend, who turns out to be a man Carrie used to date. She tells a disbelieving Charlotte that she stopped seeing him because he was a sex maniac; Charlotte explains that so far she has not been intimate with the man. Carrie forces herself to confront Big about the problem developing in their love life. Miranda becomes even more frustrated. SamanthaÕs frustration level boils over during yoga class, and she promptly ends her experiment. Charlotte decides to force the issue of sex with her boyfriend. Finally, Big shocks Carrie with an unannounced visit to her apartment.
