1. Big Mouth
“Even for a cartoon character, going through puberty isn’t easy for a young person. Andrew is learning that first hand as he experiences the nightmare that is growing up in this animated series geared toward adults. Along for the ride are friends Nick and Jessi, who develop a budding romance along the way. The comedy veterans who lend their voices to “Big Mouth” include John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph and Jordan Peele.”
This is one of my favourite animated series and favourite Netflix series. It is super funny but gets across some super important messages I wish I had at school!
2. It's A Sin
“Drama from Russell T Davies about five friends. With their lives tested as they grow up in the shadow of AIDS, they’re determined to live and love more fiercely than ever.”
This series just blew me away. It made me laugh, cry and everything in between! This is a great series for those who don’t know much about the AIDS epidemic and what it was like for the queer community during that time. Find out more about how AIDS has changed since then here.
“A New York City grad student moonlighting as a dominatrix enlists her gay BFF from high school to be her assistant.”
This is a great series for those who want to break down the completely wrong stereotypes surrounding BDSM & Kinks from the media – plus its hilarious!
4. 100 Vulvas
“Documentary artist Laura Dodsworth photographs women and hears their intimate, shocking, moving, powerful or funny stories about how their vaginas have shaped their lives”
Apart from the use of Vagina instead of Vulva we absolutely love this doc from Laura! It’s great for those who may need to fall in love with theirs.
“A pioneering and innovative online sex-ed series has landed. CLIMAX has launched with the aim to educate, inspire and achieve pleasure equality for all. Sadly, we’re living in a world where only 39% of women regularly orgasm during sex, compared to 91% of men and where women reported less satisfaction and less pleasure from sexual activity, in a phenomenon called the ‘Pleasure Gap’. CLIMAX is on a mission to change this.”
This series is the ultimate one to watch if you wanna know everything there is to know about orgasms and your body! Like ‘100 Vulvas’ it shows lots of different vulvas and even gives advice to those who struggle to orgasm!
“In her show Slutever, VICE’s resident sexpert Karley Sciortino explores the mysterious labyrinth of human sexuality and check out the various ways that people around the world like to get off.”
This is probably our favourite series to date! Karley is super sexy and opens up your mind to all sorts of wonderful topics!
7. Sex Explained
“From the biology of attraction to the history of birth control, an exploration of the ins and outs of sex.”
We definitely recommend the episode on birth control for those struggling to pick a method!
8. The Goop Lab – The Pleasure Is Ours
“Going from real vulvas to true vulnerability, Gwyneth and the team plunge into the topic of women’s pleasure, guided by sex educator Betty Dodson.”
While I would always say avoid Gwyneth, I cannot get enough of the late Betty Dodson, she was 85 at the time and helped women all over the world love their bodies & orgasm – she also proudly corrects Gwyneth Paltrow on the word Vagina!
9. Sex Education
“Insecure Otis has all the answers when it comes to sex advice, thanks to his therapist mom. So rebel Maeve proposes a school sex-therapy clinic.”
I mean who doesn’t like sex education?! This series touches on some super important topics in a way that keeps us interested!
