Believe it or not, ‘Sex Education’ has given us good lessons
On Sex Education We see everything from youthful and mature love relationships, to depression, anxiety, and much more. And yes, we are also very clear that sometimes situations are exaggerated a little bit, because at the end of the day it is a series to entertain us, but when it is time to get serious and talk directly about the problems, they do it wonderfully and Believe it or not, we have learned a lot from these characters.
That is why taking advantage of the fact that the third season of the series is already available (which by the way, (HERE you can check some images), we want to talk about some of the many lessons that the hand lowers, this Netflix production has taught us. Some evidently have to do with sex, but some are simpler than they might seem and that of course, will serve for the life of all those who see the episodes.
It’s okay to wait to lose your virginity
When we are teenagers it can be frustrating to be a virgin, especially when your [email protected] They talk all the time about their sexual relationships. And it is that inevitably in these kinds of moments a certain pressure arises to have your first time, but if something has taught us Sex Education is that it is more important to feel [email protected] and prepare yourself to take a very important step like this, which you will regret later. Take your time, nobody is in a hurry.
Sisterhood can make a difference
Maeve, Ola, Lily, Olivia may not get along very well to say the least, but despite their differences they all had something in common: they suffered some kind of sexual assault. That is why leaving your ideas, status and beliefs aside, tAll unite to support Aimee overcoming fear to get back on the bus after a subject ejaculated on his pants. A true lesson in sisterhood that we are sure no one will forget.
We cannot pass up a sexual assault
Continuing with what happens with Aimee in season two, sometimes the help we need so badly comes from the least expected people. The moral here is that sometimes it is necessary to speak up and confess everything that is happening to us in order to receive the support we so badly need. And yes, it is painful and difficult to remember situations like this, but Reporting it is important and above all, if you are [email protected] of an assault, do not let it pass.
Don’t be afraid to accept yourself as you are … with everything and your imperfections
Life is too short to hide who we are, and Sex Education He showed us this perfectly with Eric. Despite coming from a highly traditional and religious family, and the fear of rejection, as the episodes progressed, we could see that he felt more comfortable with himself and that was also seen by the others in Moordale. We are very clear that sometimes it is difficult to reach their level of acceptance, But you can’t love anyone else if you don’t start with yourself [email protected]
Here is also the issue of gender diversityWell, in addition to Eric, there are a lot of characters who openly identify as gay, lesbian, asexual, and more. Although they had a hard time understanding their own sexual identity, in the end they were not afraid and went out into the world to speak proudly and openly about what to [email protected] they like. Perhaps this is one of the greatest teachings of the entire series.
Sometimes it is necessary to say NO and respect the decisions of others
When we go through puberty, we sometimes give in to pressure from our peer group. [email protected] or we fear why others will say, which sometimes leads us to do things that we do not want. However, despite the fact that it is sometimes difficult, un simple can NOT change many things. And yes, it is likely that at first you feel bad, but you will see that after thinking coldly about the situation you will realize that it was the best for you.
This also applies to those occasions where we feel something for that person that we consider special, but that deep down does not have something reciprocal for us (cough cough, the guy who almost fell at the dance). Well, even though we love someone with all our might and we want them to be part of our life, if they don’t, we can’t. [email protected] to nothing, in the end love will always come. Yes, it is a painful but very valuable lesson.
Explore your sexuality and never be ashamed to feel pleasure
To be very honest, none of the sexual orientation classes that we have received throughout our lives have ever talked to us about pleasure, have you? Masturbation – despite the fact that the world has changed – is still a taboo and there are those who still consider it a sin, but the reality is totally different, because this is a completely normal and healthy way of dealing with our sexual urges.
No one should feel embarrassed about masturbating or flat out feeling pleasure, Well, it is necessary to do it to know what you like and tell your partner so, have better sex. And of course we saw that very clearly in Sex Education with Otis, Lily and more characters, who at first felt that they should not be explored but in the end they did and see them now, very happy and happy with who they are.
Communication with your partner and family is vital
The series is called Sex Education And as the title indicates, sex is a fundamental part of the series. But of all the lessons that both Otis with his teenage advice and Jean from a professional point of view have taught us, is that communication and trust with all the people important to you is necessary. It does not matter if it is when it comes to telling your family something or being intimate with your partner, it is vital for any situation that comes your way.
Maybe Otis hasn’t always been the best friend in the world (let’s not forget what happened on Eric’s birthday), but from there on out, he always does what he can to keep up with the people he loves. We know that sometimes it is difficult to keep an eye on [email protected] our [email protected], because the truth is impossible, but it is very important [email protected] close because [email protected] they will always be there for us when we need them, at all times.
Don’t let anyone tell you what to be
Jackson Marchetti is the most popular guy on Moordale and the truth is likely that in the first season of Sex Education, [email protected] have wanted to be like him. However, as the story progresses we realize that in reality he is not having a good time, and that is due to the pressure of one of his mothers for being an excellent swimmer. But he realized that not even his family had to decide about his life, much less should he meet the expectations that others carry on him.
Keep educating yourself
This may be very obvious, but it is important to continue educating ourselves at all times. Either on an emotional level or perhaps in the world of sex education, or any other topic that interests you, it is always necessary to continue learning, regardless of whether you “are older”. The perfect example is when a supposed mass contagion of chlamydia (which seemed pandemic) arrived in Moordale, and if the students knew that this disease is not transmitted like COVID-19, things would have been very different.
