SEX EDUCATION ONSCREEN Season 2 of Sex Education exploded back onto Netflix on 17 January. Gillian Anderson, who does a star turn as the sex-therapist mother, doesn’t watch it with her 25-year-old daughter, “but we talk about the sex bits. People say they sit and watch it at the same time [as their teens] but in separate rooms.” Asa Butterfield (who plays her son Otis) says the show “does a good job of getting through to teenagers, making them laugh, while also educating them in a non-preachy way”. For real!
