Sex and the City finally opened in theaters two weeks ago to the relief of hysterical women everywhere. Most of us, of course, saw the movie on the weekend of its release. We’d waited so long! It was finally here! We sat in our seats shivering in anticipatory excitement as the lights went down…
…and then the lights went up. Whether it was good or bad, it was finally over. We filed out of the theater elated by the fulfillment of such a long build-up, yet also somehow sad, tasting perhaps what the French call the “little death.” In the wake of the Sex and the City premier, we found ourselves aimless, going through the motions but without purpose—a Lost Generation. Thrust suddenly into a post SATC world, how were we to live? How could we now, after having seen what we’ve seen, return to a life of twice weekly TBS reruns? From the moment I left the theater two weeks ago, I found myself depressed, asking the same question over and over again. In the immortal words of Carrie Bradshaw, I couldn’t help but wonder, What now?
To get through these difficult post SATC times, many women, not surprisingly have turned to shopping therapy for their post SATC succor. Lucky for us, in beneficent response to the conspicuous vacuum the premier left in all our hearts, businesses have continued to launch SATC brand products! In addition to the Vitamin Water we saw the sexy ladies drinking on screen, or Mercedes Benz acting as official automobile sponsor for the film, SATC related offers are popping up across the country with small and big businesses alike getting into the act.
And so it is for you, my sexy and fabulous readers out there, that I have compiled this list of the most essential Sex and the City tie-in deals of the coming year to keep you and your families living fabulously from the cradle to the grave.
Sex and the City Brake Fluid
For a cougar on the hunt, stealth is everything lest she scare away her hot young prey. That’s why knowing cougars fill their cars with SATC brand brake fluid. Don’t announce your presence with squeaky brakes, announce it with your still sizzlin’ bod! This summer, New Line Cinema in partnership with Mercedes Benz, Pennzoil, and KY, is introducing the official SATC brand Brake Fluid, dubbed affectionately, “Samantha’s Lubricant.” Cougar ladies, listen up: Don’t let dryness stand in your way! With “Sam’s Lube” your car will be wet, purring and ready for anything. Ask for it at the pump.
Sex and the City Anti-fungal
Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte—and now… Gold Bond! The fifth best friend of the four most fabulous New Yorkers is Gold Bond Anti-fungal, because sometimes beauty is more than pain; sometimes beauty is foot fungus. Wearing Manolos without socks may be de rigueur, but it also creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Gold Bond Anti-fungal, now in a limited edition Pink Powder, is the official anti-fungal of Sex and the City, and the sexy choice for women who, fun and fearless like Carrie, choose not to wear socks, but to jump into life, like they do their Manolos—feet first!

Samantha: “I love making sandwiches. I love bologna. I love ham. Every now and then, I want nice aged salami, other times, it’s fresh turkey I crave. Occasionally, I’ll have ‘em all at once. Sometimes, with a sexy Swiss on top, if you know what I mean. I love all meats. I could spread my condiments over a nice piece of meat all day. I can’t get enough of [Sex and the City deli meats]!”

Ken Burns’ 10-part Sex and the City Documentary, Coming this Fall to PBS
Excerpted from the film: “It was to be the [episode] to end all [episodes], an event like the world had never seen. On May 30, four sexy women came together in an allied force to fight the evil male Hun on the Upper East Side. Sarah Jessica Parker, aka Carrie, had been warning the public for some time of a gathering storm. Kim Cattrall, aka “Uncle Samantha,” was the last to join the allies, sympathetic to the cause, yet adhering to an isolationist policy that made her reluctant to involve herself directly in the fight. After much pleading and negotiations, on May 30, 2008 the premier was declared. There were many casualties and the fear of defeat was palpable as the film progressed into its second hour. Finally with the help of good old “Uncle Samantha” the allies rallied and emerged victorious. The male leader, Mr. Big was subdued. A marriage contract was signed, stripping the evil Hun of all his power.
“In the wake of the film some sexy singles campaigned to create a League of Bitches that would meet regularly over brunch to discuss their affairs and thus ensure such a threat might never rise again, but dates were difficult to pin down as schedules varied. It wouldn’t be long before winds gathered again and the male of the Upper East Side would start to reclaim power, first by becoming a regular at a small Polish restaurant near his apartment. As the threat grows now, women all over the world have begun to speculate; would a second SATC be necessary? And, with Cynthia Nixon having recently “switched teams,” on which side would the Red vixen fight?”
