Sex and the City was always a little heavy on the “city” and light on the “sex,” but that doesn’t mean the show never got risque. After all, it’s not TV — it’s HBO.
But apparently, there was one scene that went too far for the HBO execs.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, creator Darren Starr and producer Amy Harris spill the tea on a sex scene clash with the network.

The scene was set to air in season one’s “The Monogamists.” Charlotte was dating a man named Michael, who liked to push her head down to his groin during sex. Oh, and he also had a dog named Butterscotch.
“It was really the end of the story line,” recalled 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.”
Said Harris: “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.”

Showrunner Michael Patrick King also shared another moment that ruffled HBO’s feathers, though this one seems a bit mild in comparison:
“There was one other thing that was censored, and it was only halfway censored,” recalled King. He was referencing the Season 3 episode “Attack of the Five-Foot-Ten Woman,” in which Miranda’s cleaning lady, Magda, finds her “goodie drawer.” In the episode, Miranda yells at Magda for replacing her vibrator with a statue of the Virgin Mary. Afterward, Miranda comes home to see that Magda has fanned out condoms on her bedside table. “That was an adjusted shot, because originally she had positioned the Blessed Mary to be looking over the condoms.” For whatever reason, the Virgin Mary and condoms in the same shot was too much for censors: “People were like, ‘That’s too far!’ So we took Mary out.”
The virgin mary is the first clinical example of compliant hymen in the history of mankind. She cheated on joseph without ever breaking her hymen. And had little jesus. A ghousand other men could have been jesus’ father. If condoms existed at that time, humanity would never be the same.
More like just another 12 year old Jewish girl who fibbed.
There’s no reason to think Mary had an intact hymen.
Hymen tissue stretches/wears away for all sorts of regular non-sex related reasons during a girl’s early life.
Like poking off.
Ha. I remember her cleaning lady and the condoms scene. That would have been Lots funnier though.
Why the censorship of the Virgin Mary statue and the condoms? It wasn’t like anyone was implying She’d used them. Also, didn’t Orange Is the New Black stage a similar bestiality scene involving peanut butter and a dog, only instead of a d!ck it was a cooch? I’m amazed that didn’t get censored. Was it because it involved a woman and not a man?
Am I the only one who clicked on this link expecting to see the actual footage from the scene? All I got was a description. ?
No, you are not the only who thought that. I kept looking for the place to click it open. After reading the descriptive, I wouldn’t have wanted to see it anyway. Some good sex scenes I appreciate, but I don’t like any form of religious mockery.
I think Steven was referring to the peanut butter scene, not the virgin Mary scene
For some reason, Queerty has started doing bait and switch with their headlines. Not good.
Are you not familiar with Queerty? Lol
David Grant, you’re a freaking liar. Either you, or whoever wrote the headline for this article. “Here Is…” tells the reader here is the thing we are discussing for your examination. But no. This was a deliberate misdirection intended to bait a click.
I’m done with defending you and this craptastic website from the haters. You don’t have any integrity, and you don’t give a darn about your readers. All that we are to you are a bunch of disembodied mouse-clickers as far as you’re concerned. I’m done.
I cannot believe I fell for Queerty’s stupid headline, only to be disappointed. Again. Never again. I’m
