From socially awkward teenager to resident sex advisor in his high school, Otis got his work cut out for him as he tries to educate his fellow students on how to deal with their sexual problems. Sex Education follows Otis’ high school misadventures, as well as his odd relationship with his sex-therapist mother. Get ready for laughs, love, some lube, and the best time of these high schoolers’ lives.
Why Is Sex Education Popular in Australia?
The X-Files’ Gillian Anderson stars as Otis’ frank and unfiltered mother, who also happens to be a sex therapist. Given his somewhat in-depth knowledge about the topic thanks to his mom, Otis sets out to become the school’s sex expert in hopes of improving his status. Sex Education is a Netflix original series that has received critical acclaim with its heartfelt and surprisingly wise storyline and dialogue, which sees a group of awkward teens encountering sexual misadventures that even adults could learn a thing from. Season 1 is now currently streaming and it’s been announced early this year that there will be a second season coming soon.
