Everything Is Overrated and Gillian Anderson wants to know “start by telling me the earliest memory of your scrotum”.
Sex Education tells the story of Otis, a teenage boy being raised by his sex-therapist mother Jean played by Gillian Anderson. The eight-episode dramedy takes on conversations about sex, identity, love and the ups and downs of young adult life in a frank and truthful way and proves “Experience is Overrated!”
Asa Butterfield is Otis the socially awkward boy who decides to set up a Sex Therapy clinic at school for the hopeless students. When your mum surrounds you with her literature, videos why should it be Mother like son?
Netflix presents a funny, heart-warming and cringeworthy look at the universally awkward coming-of-age experience full of good times, wild times, tough times, and the time of your life.
The streaming giants have released one final Trailer ahead of its release. Looking for that edgy coming of edge series, not scared to be risky, this might be the one. Naughty but how memorable will it be?
Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) is an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student who lives with his mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson), a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve (Emma Mackey), a whip-smart bad-girl, and his best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.
Sex Education is ready to ‘lube Up’ Globally on Netflix from Friday 11th January.
