Last update: 08/01/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 8 (Bernama) --British series "Sex Education," which seeks to break taboos that society has towards sexuality, will be released on Netflix this Friday, Jan 11. 

The eight-episode dramedy tells the story of Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student raised by his sex-therapist mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson).

The series takes on conversations about sex, identity, love and the ups and downs of young adult life in a frank and truthful way and proves “Experience is Overrated”

Surrounded by manuals, videos and pen conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realises that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status.

He teams up with Maeve (Emma Mackey), a whip-smart bad-girl, and his best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.

Sex Education is created and written by Laurie Nunn and executive produced by Jamie Campbell and Ben Taylor, and co-executive produced by Sian Robins-Grace. The series is a production of Eleven for Netflix, and was directed by Ben Taylor ("Catastrophe") and Kate Herron.
