Sex Education Season 1

Sex Education

The first season of Sex Education introduced Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), an awkward teen boy whose mother, Jean Gillian Anderson), is a sex therapist. This, obviously, makes Otis' life even more embarrassing, even with his closest friend, Eric (Ncuti Gatwa). Eventually, though, Otis befriends the cool loner girl at school, Maeve (Emma Mackey ), and the two set up a sexual counseling service for their fellow high school students. This is, obviously, ironic, as Otis is a late bloomer, but he seems to have an intuitive knowledge about sex, regardless.
