Netflix has this time amazingly brought something unique for us. 'Sex Education' television series revolves around a socially awkward high school virgin who resides with his mom, who is a sex therapist.

Netflix 'Sex Education', which premiered on Friday, January 11, turned out to be a massive hit. The series, what we believe, is perfect for those Internet users who excessively love reading porn magazines or often click Pornhub, whom we can genuinely call sex maniacs or nymphomaniacs.

Otis Milburn in 'Sex Education' series may be having a sex therapist as her mother Jean Milburn at his home, but he is in an incessant crisis over his own needs. Despite being a 16-year old boy, he has a weird secret superpower, and that's nothing but his unbelievable theoretical knowledge about sex and sexual relationships. If supposedly he is your counsellor, he can pour all his knowledge on sex on you – how to foreplay, last long in copulation, and bring an inundation of multiple orgasms for your partner – although he himself can't even masturbate. That's hilarious!

The series does not only explore young adult sexuality but also does highlight the outcome of family or parent dysfunction, the unconventional upbringing of the children during their school days, excessive parental expectation and the most importantly pitiable relationship between father and mother. Hence, the series with a good number of humorous scenes basically tries to emphasize how our teenagers suffer both in and out of school.

The plot of 'Sex Education' started like this: It's Otis' first day back to school with his closeted gay pal Eric Effiong who is suddenly seen citing him that everyone has had sex over the summer except he (Otis). He is also seen carelessly counselling Adam Groff who had taken three Viagra pills and was unable to chill his skyrocketing arousal. The humorous part in this series was that Adam already had sex with his girlfriend Aimee Gibbs but had no option than faking his orgasm after being unable to come.

However, Otis teams up with 'whip-smart bad-girl' Maeve Wiley (who has a reputation for being a slag/slut and is living alone due to the absence of her addict mom) to set up a clinic where he prefers to utilize his sexual knowledge in rendering sex therapy sessions for the students obviously not free of cost. Their deal is simple – Otis will look at the counselling part whereas Maeve will deal the business sides of the clinic. And their final profits will be equally shared between them.

The series has left no stone unturned considering the most common today's social and teenage psychological issues such as teenage abortion or pregnancy, masturbation anxiety, porn addiction, infidelity, paedophilic behavior including deep-rooted family dysfunction. The show creator and writer have also shown guts to express today's sexual identity from the prism of homosexuality. These are the reasons why this Netflix's series must be watched by all the age groups.
