The Top 10 Hunks of "Sex Education"

I haven't had a chance to watch the Netflix dramedy Sex Education yet.  I'm torn about whether I want to:

Plus: Gillian Anderson, best known as Scully on The X-Files, as a sex therapist with issues.

Minus: "A love letter to John Hughes' movies of the 1980s."  They were horribly homophobic.

Plus: Asa Butterfield, who has been in some gay-subtext vehicles.

Minus:  There will be lots of cringeworthy hetero-sex going on.

Plus: Two gay students at the school.

Minus: Uber-flamboyance.

Plus:  It seems to be set in Britain

Minus:  I've already seen Shirts vs. Skins.

I guess the deciding factor will be the amount of beefcake available.

1. Asa Butterfield as Otis, the socially awkward son of a sex therapist with issues, who starts a sex advice clinic with the help of school skank Maeve.

Not exactly a dreamy teen idol type.  More of a John Hughes nerd.

2. Ncuti Gatwa as Eric, his flamboyant best friend, who is not out to his conservative African parents.  He's here, he's queer, get used to it.

But not exactly fantasy boyfriend material.

3. Connor Swindells as Adam, the headmaster's son who bullies Eric.  A proper Manchester scally boy.  Go Man United!

4. Kedar Williams-Stirling as Jackson, head boy and swim star, who is is hotfor Maeve. So, where are all the swimsuit pics?

5. Alistair Petrie as Mr. Groff, the headmaster.

In case you're wondering, I haven't found shirtless pics of any of these actors, except for a 10-year old Asa Butterfield, but it's too late to stop now.

More after the break

6. Chaneil Kular as Anwar, the other gay student.

At least the cast is nicely diverse, but if I don't see some pecs and abs soon, I'm giving up.

7. Jim Howick as science teacher Mr. Hendricks, who also conducts the swing band.  Is this set in, like, the 1940s?

8. Deobia Oparei as Eric's father, who disapproves of his son's flamboyance.

And apparently is allergic to shirtless shots.

9.Edward Bluemel as Sean, Maeve's absent older brother who raised her instead of her parents.  Wait -- if he's absent, how did he raise her?

Bluemel is cute, but when even aznudemen.com doesn't show any skin, what can you do.

10. We're deep in "recurring character" territory now, with Kadeem Ramsey as Octoboy.


Ok, I'm done.

By the way, the top photo was reserved for the best beefcake on the show, but upon finding none, I put in a selfie of a guy from Birmingham, Alabama.


  1. John Hughes movies were also very...white. I mean, you have Emilio Estevez, and that's it.


No comments that use abusive or vulgar language or point out that a character is Not Wearing a Sign. DO NOT use the term "homosexual." Don't worry if a photo does not depict the person mentioned; beefcake is beefcake.
