Love, Sex

14 'Sex And The City' Quotes From Samantha Jones That Are Still EVERYTHING

Samantha Jones quote from sex and the city

Since its raunchy release, Sex and the City has become a right of passage for women everywhere as we watch Carrie Bradshaw and her dearest friends discuss the mysteries of Manolo Blahnik shoes and men in New York City.

While each of them brought something different to the table personality-wise (making them each relatable to a certain extent), it was Samantha Jones who put the sex in the city (and wherever else she chose). It wasn't just because she amused us with her sexual escapades or her willingness and even preference to remain single.

Say what you will about the woman, but she knew her sh*t and she was feminist as f*ck.

In all her hilarious one-liners about sex, she also brought a certain wisdom when it came to sex, dating, and even sometimes love (as much as she tried to avoid the "motherfucker").

Resonating deeply with my singledom, Samantha is hands down one of my favorite and most real characters on the show. 

And if I ever I needed dating advice from any of the ladies, there's no denying that I'd run to her first because even though she's perpetually single, she doesn't hold back. And from where I'm sitting (behind the TV), she's never been wrong. Well, at least when it comes to the lives of her friends.

She was ahead of her time with her openness and carefree attitude toward sex and dating, and by all accounts, she was the modern, sex-positive woman to look to back then. Truth be told, she still is! 

Sure, we're more sex positive these days, but every now and again you need Samantha Jones to remind you that what you or anyone else is doing is their own damn prerogative — whether it's a good time you're looking for or love. 

She's usually got all the answers to your sex woes and by answers I mean she'd tell you this: just do it. 

Here are 14 Sex and the City quotes from Samantha that are still every bit relevant today:

If you're searching for the best quotes and memes to share with the people you love (or just want to feel inspired yourself) ... look no further! From the sweetest love quotesinspirational sayings, and hilarious friendship truths, we've got you covered.

Screw You

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

The good ones screw you, the bad ones screw you, and the rest don't know how to screw you. 

When you're single, it seems that options come down to these three categories, but it took Samantha to assure me this wasn't a figment of my imagination. 


Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

When you're the only single gal in your group, they tend to turn you into a sap for love and what not.

Ex Sex

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

...Or, if it's good, you keep dipping back for more and more until you have a situation-ship on your hands. I'm sure Sam has covered this in the 90s terminology or were they calling it a "situation-ship" back then, too?

Tough Love

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

Get a Man? Why?

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

Never Forget

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

And it's never, ever late or inconsiderate. 

What a Shame.

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

My vagina? It's sort of like God's gift so there's only so many times we can allow you to disappoint. But I'll always take the blame the first f*ck up because I was likely blinded by horniness.

Waiting is Worthless

Sex And The City Quotes Samantha Jones

All those books we keep reading that tell us guys sh*t on us because we didn't wait? Bullshit! I've waited. I've not waited. And it's usually the same outcome if a guy really likes you.

The Unspoken Truth
