Charlotte invites the girls to a gallery opening for an artist who photographs drag kings (women dressed as men). Charlotte meets the photographer, Baird, and he asks if she’d be willing to pose for him sometime. Meanwhile, Carrie and her new twentysomething boy Sean are having a good time bar-hopping and ice skating until Carrie is thrown for a loop when she learns Sean has dated both men and women. Carrie is confused about who he’s really attracted to, but they end up in the sack anyway. Samantha’s new and cute assistant, Matt, is also confused — about who’s the boss. Samantha tries to put him in his place, but he ignores her, and Samantha is forced to fire and then sleep with him. Miranda feels suffocated when she gets home from work and finds Steve in her bed eating crackers, with a pile of his dirty clothes on the floor. She asserts her need for space, and Steve storms out. But the next day when Miranda comes home to an empty nest, she’s lonely and invites Steve to move in, full-time. After resisting for a while, Charlotte poses for Baird, and looks so fabulous that she and Baird end up getting busy. Things get too busy for Carrie at a party with Sean where it seems everyone is bisexual. During a round of spin the bottle, Carrie kisses another woman, and then leaves, realizing she’s too old fashioned for this scene.
”I’m a trisexual. I’ll try anything once.” -Samantha
