Original ‘Sex and the City’ lacks class

Becca Saunders | Sunday, January 16, 2005

The book is broken into chapters that seem to be articles or perhaps multiple articles on the same topic written by Bushnell. With topics ranging from “modelizers” (men who only date models), “Bicycle Boys” (men who ride their bikes around the city like the literary men of old), threesomes, psychotic parents, the suburbs and much more, it would be impossible to deny that “Sex and the City” is informative. However, just how much information does the average person really want to know about the sick world that seems to compose Manhattan? “Sex and the City” pushes boundaries, but at times Bushnell pushes too far, providing too much disturbing information about her personal life and the personal lives of others.
