Sex Education

My husband kept telling me about this Netflix series but I felt like I've had enough of series. I got tired watching Modern Family. Don't get me wrong, I like The Modern Family, it's just way too long for my short attention span😁. 

John assured me though that Sex Education is different, consisting of only 8 episodes, with running time of 45 minutes in each, you can finish it in a day."  He even added, with a wink on his right eye, "it is a must see, you'll like it, babe". I don't know if he was teasing me because of the word sex. 😁 

It was only the other day that I finally had the time to watch  Sex Education because I was too busy since December 18, 2018, running from one place to another. 

My verdict? This is a MUST SEE SERIES whether for young adults (18+) or old moms like me .  Just make sure there's no children at home while you're watching so you don't have to turn on and off the television.😁

I'm giving this series a five out of five stars as it tackles not only about sex but the underlying reasons of how and why people behave in such manner, pinpointing the good and the bad parts of life and  imparting lessons along the way.

With all the elements of comedy, drama and current social issues happening on social media,  more adults are watching the show. I'm actually recommending this series for parents to see and not for the younger crowd.

Some Filipino parents might find this series too much, but honestly there's more to see and learn here than sex per se. Parents may actually be able to relate to some situations and eventually work out some issues happening with their respective kids.

Some of the viewers didn't like the ending but I say, it is what it. It just goes to say that life really is unpredictable and you just have to be strong and flexible enough to accept the things you cannot change and be brave enough to take risks. 

With that said, I'd like to leave this quote, mentioned by the main character, Otis Milburn, "You can't choose who you're attracted to. You can't engineer a relationship. You have to do what's right."  


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.
