Sex Education

Sex Education is a new comedy series on Netflix that promises to make you “laugh, cry and cringe.” The series debuted this week and as evidenced by the title, is all about sex.

Unlike recent YA originals on Netflix — see To All the Boys I’ve Loved BeforeDumplin’ and Sierra Burgess is a Loser — these high schoolers are doing more than dancing around the romantic idea of sex. They’re hungry for it, and they’re having it.

The series that casts Asa Butterfield as Otis , a sweet, unassuming 16-year-old outcast whose single, free-loving sex-therapist mum Jean (Gillian Anderson!) is always embarrassing him with her lack of boundaries. After watching him give some surprisingly great sex advice to a fellow student, Otis’ rebellious crush Maeve persuades him to set up his own informal therapy practice on campus and cut her in on the profits.

  1. Good anytime to talk about sex and not be putting it down. Great idea to have more adolescents become adults without being religious wackos or similar.

    1. “I’ve had wood for Asa since Ender’s Game.”

      And Asa had “wood” (at the very least a semi — not knowing how large he is) IN Ender’s Game (and it wasn’t his ‘blaster’ although I imagine he blasted a few times while making that movie) — just look closely at his cute “practice” uniform when they’re ‘marching’ up the stairs — he’s front and center.

  2. I just binge watched the entire season. Highly recommended. Some smart advice mixed in with pretty boys, men, women and girls, a little sex, a little more sex, lots of sex. Good fun.

  3. Well Horsie as long as its not since “The boy in the striped pyjamas”. And mfvb 21 is hardly old. He looks younger.
