Channeling his Sex Therapist mother, inexperienced teen Otis decides to set up a Sex Therapy clinic at school for the hopeless students of Moordale High. Get ready for love, laughs, lube, and the best time of their lives. Netflix.

A charming show, with likable characters--and an extremely candid (and fairly graphic) look at adolescent (well, human) sexuality and our struggles with it.

I absolutely love this show. It has its faults, but itís so good at what itís good at. And Emma Mackey was a find; that girl is going places.

lol, what the hell are mikael persbrandt doing in this

he's the guy you see at 0:17 in the trailer, the most famous actor in sweden (including the hollywood ones like vikander, skarsgŚrds). everyone and their grandma know who he is over here. anna odell's latest movie is about how she wants to have sex with him...

A big subplot of this show is Gillian Anderson wanting to have sex with him, so Iím sensing a theme.

I really don't care about attractive shiny teenagers having sex. It was enough seeing the giant posters every morning for a week in the subway station.

(I do like Call Me By Your Name, though.)

Well, ditto.  But what's interesting to me is the different ways they're having trouble having sex.

Yes, my comment was made in half bad faith; I've seen actual footage of the show that made me rethink what the giant zippers were trying to sell.
