Created and executive produced by Laurie Nunn, Sex Education follows the life of socially awkward teenager Otis. In partnership with tough girl Maeve, they start a business where he dispenses sex and relationship advice to his confused and very thirsty schoolmates – all while navigating his own sexual hang-ups (and his feelings for Maeve).
