"Socially awkward high school student Otis may not have much experience in the lovemaking department, but he gets good guidance on the topic in his personal sex ed course -- living with mom Jean, who is a sex therapist. Being surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis has become a reluctant expert on the subject. When his classmates learn about his home life, Otis decides to use his insider knowledge to improve his status at school, so he teams with whip-smart bad girl Maeve to set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their classmates' problems. But through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realizes that he may need some therapy of his own. Written by krmanirethnam

Did You Know?


Although the show takes place in a British school named Moordale Secondary, it has an American high school environment with lockers, Letterman jackets, a rugby ball being carried around (mimicking an American football) the hallways and no school uniforms. The creators did this intentionally to make the show more accessible to international audiences (mainly American) and a homage to the John Hughes films that inspired the show. See more »

I love everything and everyone one in this series
1 February 2020 | by cpainter1-4-578820See all my reviews

I am an 80 year old retired psychologist and I am totally enchanted with each and every one of these characters. Life is messy, their lives are messy, and they find ways to deal with and cope with real situations. The acting is wonderful, the stories are wonderful, the filming is wonderful...Simple, free advice? Watch it.
