Oh, Ms. Jones. She may have started out a figment of Candace Bushnell's imagination, but now is a bonafide icon. The sex positive lessons to learn from Samantha on Sex and the City are plenty, and have influenced the kink of millions. Samantha is one bad b*tch, but she is also a loyal friend, a self-made Manhattan mogul, and unafraid to be who she is, which makes her a perfect spokeswoman for sex positivity. Hell, she eve admits her age in the final episode of the series. It's exactly this no-shame attitude about anything, which includes lots and lots of sex, which makes Samantha Jones a compelling character. Not only is she a stone cold fox, but Sam has quite a bit to teach young women about what it means to be hot and self-possessed. Of course she's an extreme character, but who of the show's famous foursome isn't?
You might think that the sex positive movement is for people who want to have lots of sex with whomever they want. But that's not what sex positivity is about. Being sex positive celebrates desire devoid of shame or judgment. It's about owning your sex life, whether that means hours of masturbation, getting off to a priest, or fellating a guy with "funky spunk." So channel your inner Samantha and take note of these sex positive lessons she taught during her time on TV.
