— Eric to Otis about sex

Episode 1 is the first episode of the first season of Sex Education. It is the first episode of the series overall.


Despite the ministrations of sex therapist mother Jean and encouragement from pal Eric, Otis worries that he can't get it on. He's not the only one.



A young couple is having sex, and the girl asks the guy if he likes her tits. He answers by saying he loves her tits. The girl asks him if he wants to cum on them, he says sure, but first he needs to take off the condom. However, the girl says they should do it from the back since last time, she got a rash. The girl moans and says she’s going to cum, and the guy fakes an orgasm. The girl realizes the guy just faked it, and asks him where the spunk is. Despite his best efforts the guy, whom the girl refers to as Adam, couldn't ejaculate.

Meanwhile in another house, Otis looks to have been awake for a while, and eventually he gets up from his bed and ends up making it seem like he just masturbated, by carefully laying a porn magazine, a box of tissues and lotion on said bed.

Later, as Otis is riding his bike to school, he tells his friend Eric that he has given up on masturbating. His friend asks Otis if he can even get a hard-on. To which Otis says that of course he can because he’s not a fucking eunuch. He just waits for them to go away because he doesn’t like how it feels.

After the school assembly, Adam pushes Eric into the lockers, and tells him to shut the fuck up, and to give him whatever he has on him. Adam is bullying eric for a long time and eric is used to it. Adam ends up taking his sandwich and eats his curly wurly.

Jackson writes up a letter to Maeve for running in the halls, but the note tells her to meet up with him after school.

At Otis’ house, Jean meets Adam and ends up smoking weed with him. She does, however ask Adam if he smokes weed a lot. Adam says he does, and Jean warns him that smoking a lot of cannabis has been linked to early onset impotence. Adam gets angry and leaves.

During science class the next day, Maeve and Otis are partners for a vagina labeling assignment. He proves to her his wits by correctly labeling the hymen. In order to embarrass Otis, Adam shares a video of Jean giving a handjob to an eggplant for an educational video on masturbating. Otis bolts out of the class and has a panic attack Maeve follows behind at the science teacher's instruction to check on him. She tells him that it could have been a lot worse, and his mom could have been stroking a real penis.

The two of them hear some sounds coming from the bathroom that is supposedly locked away because it has asbestos. They go inside, and come across Adam in one of the stalls. He asks for help, but Otis refuses since he knows Adam was the one to share that video of his mom with everyone.

Adam tells Otis that his penis feels like it’s gonna explode and not in a good way. Maeve asks if they should go get the nurse, but Adam says they can’t tell anyone. Adam eventually tells Otis that he took 3 viagras. He then says that he feels lightheaded and can taste scampi. With some counseling from Otis, Adam opens up about the pressures he feels at being the headmaster’s son, and having a big dick. Eventually, the erection caused by the viagra goes down. Otis tells him to own his truth; that Adam does have a big dick and that his dad is the headmaster. So he just needs to accept that those are things that'll never change. When he, Maeve and Otis come out of the bathroom, Otis tells Adam he won’t say anything if he promises to leave his friend Eric alone. Adam agrees and when Maeve says Adam also owes Otis an apology. Adam apologizes and says that Otis’ mom just got in his head. Even going as far to call her a sexy witch.

At lunch, Adam gets on the tables to show off his huge dick, as a way of owning this truth. Later, Aimee has sex with him in the science classroom before breaking up with him.

Aimee tells Maeve that Otis' advice worked and that Adam did in fact ejaculate.

Later that night, Otis tries to masturbate but is unable to, and ends up hearing his mom and a new mystery man have sex.

The next morning, Otis admits to his mom that he can’t masturbate, but doesn’t want to talk about it and is dealing with it on his own.

At school the next day, Adam calls off the deal he initially had with Otis saying his advice was shit. Shortly thereafter, Maeve proposes to Otis that they start a sex therapy business at school. She tells him she’s good with numbers,and he’s got a gift when it comes to sex therapy. Otis decides to take her up on that offer.

— Eric to Otis at the beginning of their junior year.

Even Maeve Wiley's boobs have gotten bigger, which I thought was technically imposible. I heard she bit Simon Furthassle on the scrotum, and now it's all wonky, like a discount avocado. I heard she sucked off twelve guys in ten minutes for a dare. She's basically a nympho.
