No ‘Sex’ in the Holy City

There will be no sex in the Holy City this month. As women around the world gear up for the much-anticipated return of Carrie Bradshaw (aka Sarah Jessica Parker), who is making her debut on the silver screen this month, outdoor advertisements for “Sex and the City: The Movie” have been banned from Jerusalem and Petah Tikva by city officials. The reason, of course, is that the word “sex” is printed on the film’s posters and billboards and might offend the city’s religious denizens. The movie is based on HBO’s wildly popular series of the same name.
