Netflix’s latest teenage comedy, Sex Education, was definitely a novel approach to the messed up, confused, at times comical but always dramatic teenage life. 


And if you loved the show, then here are some other shows that you can watch online that deal with teenagers, sex, and crazy adventures in a relatable and hilarious manner: 

1. Skins

This intense British teen comedy is a seven seasons long journey of a group of teenagers, as they battle sexuality, dysfunctional families, mental health issues, and everything in between. Dramatic and funny in an edgy way, the show has been lauded for its poignant and believable storytelling.

2. Big Mouth

This animated sitcom is a hilarious comedy, with detailed characterizations, empathetic plot points, and an overtly gleeful look at teenage awkwardness. The show portrays the life of young teenagers navigating life through puberty and all the ‘instances’ that come with it.

3. Misfits

This science fiction comedy follows the story of a group of young offenders who gain supernatural powers after an electrical storm. From special effects to dark humor and at times chilling storylines, the show has it all. But what’s it is most known for is the crisp script and exceptional performances by its actors.

The show stars Iwan Rheon, known for his brilliantly horrific portrayal of Ramsay Bolton in Game Of Thrones. It is available on Netflix.

4. My Mad Fat Diary

Based on Rae Earl’s novel My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary, the show is a teenage comedy exploring the life of 16-year-old Rae Earl who is fighting body health issues, and ‘school cliques’. This critically acclaimed drama is painfully honest in its portrayal of mental health and body image issues and yet filled with numerous genuinely hilarious scenarios. 


5. The Inbetweeners

A coming of age sitcom following the life of teenager Will and his friends in their conquest for sex, the show dealt with male bonding, school life, and situations that frame our formative years. The show is widely praised for presenting an honest, and consequently at times a drab picture, of what teenage life actually looks like – which was a wide contrast from the ‘wild’ life that many shows and movies present.

6. Awkward

This teenage comedy-drama follows the life of teenager Jenna Hamilton, as she struggles with coming into her personality, fighting peer pressure, and battling a misconstrued ‘suicide’ attempt. While there is no denying the hilarity that ensues, it’s the relatability – especially in the depiction of teenage pains – that really sets the show apart.

7. Bad Education

When it comes to script writing, it is admittedly not the best on the list, but Bad Education definitely reels in the laughs. It’s the story of History teacher Alfie Wickers navigating school children’s antics, a not-so-secret crush for a fellow teacher, and a demanding administration.

Another British comedy-drama series, the show follows the life of 6 university freshers struggling to balance grades, finances, sexual desires, and romantic entanglements.
