Sex Education Scores 90% On Rotten Tomatoes And Is Being Compared To Skins

You may have spotted the trailer for new comedy series Sex Education hovering at the top of your Netflix feed.

It's a British series created by Laurie Nunn, following a teenager called Otis whose mum is a sex therapist - and he decides to do one better by opening his very own underground sex clinic for his classmates.

It premiered on Netflix on 11 January, but in less than a week it's already become a firm favourite among audiences and critics alike.

In fact, it's proven such an instant hit that its Rotten Tomatoes rating is currently sitting at a rather comfortable 90 percent fresh.

In her review, The Atlantic's Sophie Gilbert referred to it as a 'woke raunch comedy', while Paste Magazine's Amy Glynn said it is a 'decidedly raunchy and thoroughly adorable coming-of-age dramedy'.

NBC Think's Ani Bundel wrote: "Look past the erection jokes and you'll find a show that's willing to acknowledge the emotional challenges of sex are just as important as the mechanical ones."

Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph's Helen Brown awarded the show a full five stars out of five, writing: "Twenty-first-century teenagers are going to find real comfort and companionship in these characters, while those of us old enough to have seen those John Hughes movies at the cinema will wish Sex Education had been there for us."

Many viewers are also comparing the show to Skins, the hugely popular British coming-of-age series that ran for six seasons from 2007 to 2013 - and helped launch the careers of several of its young stars, including Dev Patel, Nicholas Hoult and Game of Thrones' Joe Dempsie.

One viewer tweeted: "Started watching Sex Education expecting a fun raunchy comedy but it's actually a really heart filled drama packed with powerful moments. Reminds me a lot of Skins season 1 and 2."

Another commented: "Sex Education is filling a Skins shape hole I've had since it ended."

A third wrote: "Jumping on the #SexEducation bandwagon. Feel like I'm 14 again: watching Skins, wanting to be as cool as the lead girl, and fancying literally everyone in the show. #Netflix what have you done to me..."
