Publisher's summary

Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, Is There Still Sex in the City? gathers Bushnell’s signature short, sharp, satirical commentaries on the love and dating habits of middle-aged men and women as they continue to navigate the ever-modernizing world of relationships. Throughout, Bushnell documents 21st-century dating phenomena, such as the “Unintended Cub Situation” in which a sensible older woman suddenly becomes the love interest of a much younger man, the “Mona Lisa” Treatment - a vaginal restorative surgery often recommended to middle-aged women, and what it’s really like to go on Tinder dates as a 50-something divorcee. Bushnell also updates one of her most celebrated stories from Sex and the City, “The Bicycle Boys”, which is about a breed of New York men who are always trying to bring their bikes up to women’s apartments. Once an anomaly, Bushnell charts their new ubiquity, in addition to where and how to do your own man-stalking via bicycle (and whether or not it’s worth it).

In Is There Still Sex in The City?, Bushnell looks at love and life from all angles - marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, and the very real pressures women face to maintain their youth and have it all. This is a pull-no-punches social commentary and an indispensable companion to one of the most revolutionary dating books of the 20th century.

Featured Article: Sex and the City—Books vs. Show

It might be time to have a bit of a Sex and the City refresher before diving back into the fabulous, fun, flirty, and hilarious world of Carrie Bradshaw and her friends. You might know that Sex and the City is based loosely on the book of the same name by Candace Bushnell. But just how loosely based are we talking? If you listened to the Sex and the City audiobook, would you even recognize Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha? Or would you be getting an entirely different story? Read on for our guide to the differences between the Sex and the City book and the show to find out.
