Charlotte lent Carrie money, so Carrie could purchase an apartment.All of these are examples of just how much the these ladies were there for each other.Donald Trump posted a picture of his own inauguration with a huge mistake printed onto it. I was 14 years old; the last thing my parents wanted was to get cable and have me get ideas from these four fictional women—Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York—and then try to cash in my virginity like it was a gift card to Barnes & Noble.I owe a lot of this to HBO's landmark raunchy-yet-touching comedy (which I discovered while in college) as it was the unofficial life guide that I used to help me navigate through my 20s in New York City.While the rule of thumb may have been wait to have sex until a third date, 34% of singles have had sex before a first date, and Millennials are 48% more likely to have sex before a first date than all other generations of singles, according to the annual Singles in America survey, funded by Dallas-based dating service Match and conducted by Research Now.Millennials especially are unencumbered by fears that may have held people back from having sex in the past, says Helen Fisher a biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser to Match, who helped develop the representative survey of more than 5,000 singles.“We have a real misunderstanding of Millennials,” she said.I don’t share whimsical sloth pictures on Tumblr or insist that a dog is “really connecting” with me or try to psychoanalyze my friend’s cat’s behavior.But when I read Daniel Bergner’s description of rat clitorises — one of the more fascinating sections of his totally engrossing new book, , out this week — for once I felt a serious connection with the animal kingdom.But for women who’ve been with their partners between one and four years, a dive begins — and continues, leaving male desire far higher.” We fundamentally misunderstand women’s lust, says Bergner.
