10 Things Samantha Jones Taught Us About Sex

If you only take sex lessons from one human being on this planet, make that person Samantha Jones. The feisty, fun-loving and sexually uninhibited PR professional from HBO's hit show, Sex and the City has been there, done that and got the T-shirt for pretty much every sex act. She's taught us everything we need to know about sex, satisfaction and self-worth. Here's what every girl can learn from Samantha Jones...

Samantha Jones will always be one of our favourite TV characters. It's only a shame we haven't been able to find someone quite like her in real life. In every episode, we could always count on her to dish out unforgettable one-liners that serve as reference points during our grueling dating escapades.

So what exactly has she taught us? Quite frankly, a lot. Here are a few of the greatest sex lessons we've gleaned from Samantha Jones.

1. Don't wait for a man to make you happy.

We won't forget the time Samantha declared,"Honey, my vagina waits for no man." You better believe we took that line all the way to the bank and cashed it. All too often, we pine over a guy we can't get out of our heads. Meanwhile, he's on the other side of town living it up with no regard for us. Why should we waste our hotness waiting for some dude who couldn't care less? On to the next one, please.

2. No available penis? No worries. Masturbate.

Aside from the very direct scene above, in the "Escape from New York" episode, Samantha let it be known, "I have a date with a dildo." Samantha is a woman is unafraid to show herself some love. The lesson to be learned here: don't be timid in pleasuring yourself. Get familiar with your body, love it, own it and enjoy it. After all great sex starts with knowing what you like.

3. Oral sex can be empowering

Samantha on oral sex: "The sense of power is such a turn-on. Maybe you're on your knees, but you got him by the balls."

If you're afraid of feeling submissive while performing fellatio on your guy, remember Sam's words. Ladies, you're more powerful than you think!

4. Don't limit yourself in the bedroom.

As our favourite gal put it, 'I'm a 'trisexual'. I'll try anything once." While we're not telling you to run completely wild, don't be afraid to let your hair down and embrace your inner vixen. We'll admit it, sometimes the same ol' same 'ol can get a little boring. When that happens, we're not afraid to open our minds and bedrooms to new experiences in a way that Sam Jones would be proud of. Use your imagination to take you to refreshingly new sexual peaks.

5. Have sex with whomever you please.

In the "Cover Girl" episode, Samantha roared, "I will not be judged by you or society. I will wear whatever and blow whomever I want as long as I can breathe and kneel!" Amen, sister!

You heard the woman! Society sometimes has a habit of packing women away in neat little boxes of who and what they expect them to be. Don't allow your individuality to be hijacked by people who shouldn't have a say-so in your personal endeavors.

6. Sex with an ex is a TERRIBLE idea.

We won't forget when Sam said, "Sex with an ex can be depressing. If it's good you can't get it anymore, if it's bad you just had sex with an ex." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

Of course the sex with the guy that broke your heart was mind-blowingly incredible. But guess what? That ex is an ex for a reason. No good can ever come from backsliding. Save yourself the heartache. There's way too many new men in the world to find and sink your nails into.

7. Safe sex is great sex. ALWAYS use a condom.

The "Unoriginal Sin" installment of Sex and the City found Samantha giving her take on the importance of contraceptives, "I'll tell you how to baby proof, use a condom!"

In addition to preventing unplanned pregnancies, condoms are vital in preventing sexually transmitted diseases. Duh! So smart, so protect yourself!

8. Don't get attached to your f*ck buddy.

Samantha put it perfectly, "You can't date your f*ck buddy... You're going to take the only person in your life that's there purely for sex, no strings attached, and turn him into a human being? Why? "

As if dating and relationships weren't hard enough, don't go ruining a good thing. If you and your buddy have a mutual agreement to fulfill each other's sexual needs, why make it complicated? Keep things strictly sexual and enjoy the fireworks for what they are.

9. Don't be scared of a little porn.

For anyone who might've been hesitant about joining the digital age, Samantha named one undeniable perk, "You've got to get online, honey. If only for the porn."

The right kind of porn can be an exciting and helpful tool in spicing up your bedroom activities. Put porn to good use!

10. Make yourself a priority.

Whether you're letting your man orgasm more than you, scrimping on foreplay or letting him have his way in the bedroom, don't forget to ask yourself what YOU want. We're naturally inclined to give and give. We sometimes love to a fault. Keep in mind, you won't be able to truly love someone until you've shown yourself the love you deserve. Always make time for your needs when it comes to sex. It's not just about his satisfaction.
