Bottom Line: This is one of the most well written dramatic comedies I’ve had the pleasure of seeing, and on top of that it manages to bulldoze its way through the topic of sex and sexuality without pulling any punches nor being exploitative.
Sex Ed follows a group of students who find themselves taking a extraordinarily non-traditional Sex Ed class. From the start, the teacher takes it upon herself to push their boundaries (beginning by forcing them to sculpt each others genitals).
All in all this is a fantastic ride with a well acted and diverse cast of characters.
A cross between The Breakfast Club and Sex and the City, Sex Ed: The Series is a dramedy that follows the personal lives of eight very different college students who enroll in a general education course called “Sexuality Today.” What seems to be a cake course turns into something unusual in the hands of Professor Alison Trevase, starting with her first assignment: to pair up and make clay sculptures of each other’s genitals.
With each lesson, the students are forced into intimate situations where they discover things about themselves that they’d rather not admit publicly.
Not everyone will pass. But everyone will be exposed.

I can’t get over the energy that just oozes from this show.
Get past the fact that this show is about sex. Seriously. The moment that you do what you’ll find is that it’s utterly fantastic, combining a entertaining cast with strong dialogue and a storyline that will leave you thinking. (Watchability 5)
