Sex / Life is the latest new series that will dominate Netflix headlines.
The highly anticipated comedy-drama is based on BB Easton’s book 44 Chapters About 4 Men, Sex / Life.
The show, created by a predominantly female creative team, explores sexual desires from a woman’s perspective.
Creator Stacy Rukeyser recently teased that it would contain “a healthy dose of objectification and fetishization of the masculine form”.
So it’s already at the top of our Netflix list!
