Sex And The City is still an iconic show even 20 years after it's original debut. Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte are known for breaking boundaries and making some shocking statements. Between the foot fetishes, seducing celibate monks, and releasing sex tapes to the public, the writers at Sex And The City knew how to push the limit of what was acceptable for television at the time. But there were definitely times the show went a bit too far and the network was forced to push back. The writers recently divulged to Vanity Fair about what it was like writing for the hit show, then they revealed a few secrets about when they had to draw the line on their explorative series.
In the Season one episode, "The Monogamists," Charlotte dates a man who is always pushing her to go down on him and she's obviously not down with that. The concept of this episode was all about this man's obsession with oral sex, but it was way worse than what ended up being aired.
"It was really the end of the storyline," recalled Sex and the City creator Darren Star. "He basically was always pushing her head down to give him oral sex. And he had this golden retriever who was always around. In the final scene, she basically let him have it about being offended by his insistence on just wanting a blow job. She accused him of only liking her for that and kind of stormed out. And then she walked back in and saw that his golden retriever was going down on him."
Another writer chimed in to say, "It's sort of horrifying that we shot that. We shot him putting peanut butter on his penis, and Charlotte walks back in like, 'Oh, I'm being unreasonable,' and then she sees that...I can't believe we even thought about doing it."
Needless to say, the dog going down aspect of the show was WAY too gross, but can you believe they even shot that? The writers actually thought to write it, film it, and propose it to the network! I mean, if it were to happen on any show, it would definitely be this one, but we never knew SATC got that repulsive. Are you surprised by this, or just surprised they ended up deleting the scene? Were there any other scenes in Sex And The City that you thought went too far? Let us know in the comments below!
