"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

So many feelings. WOW!
21 January 2020 | by janerossljSee all my reviews

I can't stress enough how amazing this show is. It is a roller coaster of sadness and REAL life but so so funny and brilliantly made. I can honestly say it's one of my all time favourites. I had high expectations for Season 2 since Season 1 was so amazing, but Season 2 exceeded my expectations beyond any words I could ever write in this review. I binged both seasons in a day and journeyed along with all the characters. I LOVE that it displayed real life and not the typical stereotype "boy gets the girl and lives happily ever after". So wonderful to see Netflix releasing one of a kinds!! I really hope they renew for Season 3!
