Otis has been planting evidence of standard teenage behaviour in his room to avoid maternal attention in this matter. Poor Otis. But this beleaguered boy will shortly be taken up by badass cool girl Maeve Wiley Emma Mackey , when she spots a lucrative opportunity to charge for the sex counselling skills he has unavoidably absorbed in a marketplace of anxious and furiously active teenagers. But none of them are, in this immaculately, densely written, glorious creation — her first for TV — of playwright Laurie Nunn.

Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. If you're counting down the days to Christmas but kind of dreading the new year, Netflix have something to make the introduction to that little bit easier.
Sex can be a lot of fun. It can also be weird—confusing, disappointing, embarrassing, or emotionally fraught. Most adults are aware of these variables. And yet movies and TV shows often depict sex in simplistic terms, particularly when it comes to stories about teenagers.
