Understanding SOGIE By Watching Netflix Series - Sex Education.

 Because we’ve been mentioning SOGIE (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Expression) frequently among various platforms, it is timely and relevant that we have to deep dive into the various colors in the spectrum of Rainbow colors in the LGBTQIA+ community.

But, “What is really a sexual orientation?” If you’ve watched the Netflix series – Sex Education, perhaps you might have a little idea of what is sexual orientation. This is solely about to whom you really like and get attracted - romantically, emotionally, and sexually. These are homosexuals, heterosexuals, pansexual, bisexuals, at asexual.

It is also important to consider that individuals have no rigid label that is appropriate to each of us. It is up to you what label you would like to claim for yourself – if there is. And of course, it is a must that we have to respect the sexual orientation of other individuals; and never label anyone based on your own point of view,  if they don’t affirm such label inline to their preference.

Meanwhile, Sex Education is a British comedy-drama streaming television series created by Laurie Nunn for Netflix. The series follows the lives of the students, staff, and parents of the fictional Moordale Secondary School as they contend with various personal dilemmas, often related to sexual intimacy. It stars an ensemble cast consisting of Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Alistair Petrie, Mimi Keene, and Aimee Lou Wood.


Bisexuality is being interested romantically as well as sexually in both men and women (or) more than two genders. Being bisexual doesn’t mean being attracted to both genders equally. For example, it is considered bisexual even if you are 90% attracted to women and only 10% to men. There is no such thing as you’re not bisexual because you aren’t attracted to both genders equally. Your sexual orientation can be anything.

In Sex Education, Adam is a bisexual. Throughout the series, it is satisfying to see Adam figuring himself out and getting better at communications. This character grows the most out of everyone.


Pansexuals’ romantic and sexual attraction does not depend on gender. Pansexuality is a more free branch of bisexuality. Because pansexuals are open to relationships with those who don’t identify as either male or female. The extent of whether pansexuality is inclusive or not is still being debated among the LGBTQ community (especially in the bisexual community). Nevertheless, pansexuality is definitely a free sexual identity.

Ola is a pansexual. Ever since her first appearance, she is full of confidence and knows herself well. This character gives off all the vibes of pansexuality. Her behaviors and fashion, literally everything about her, just screams light and freedom.


Homosexuality is, as you know, romantic and sexual attraction between the same gender. People tend to consider themselves arriving at the homosexual destination if they’re not hetero, rather than discovering whether they’re bisexual and pansexual or not. Here, the term “gay” is used for males and “lesbian” for females. In terms of essential psychology, homosexual relationships are no different than heterosexual relationships.

Eric, Eric, Eric! Eric is a homosexual (gay). He is always interesting to look at. He’s hilarious and always colorful. The relationship between Otis and Eric is very precious.


Asexuality is the lack of sexual orientation towards other people. There is, however, a romantic attraction. Basically, there are no sexual activities in their relationships. But, asexuals take part in sexual activities to pleasure their partner, or to perceive a baby. They, themselves, do not prefer sex.

Although Florence is not the main character, she is still a great representative of the asexual community. She is more interested in her acting than sex (unlike other characters).

Non-Binary is not a sexual orientation like the above. It’s a gender identity. Non-binary people don’t identify as male or female (traditional gender binary) only. They can be men, women, between two genders, or completely not included in the gender category. Their pronouns are They/Them. Since non-binary people don’t identify as their assigned sexes, they are under the transgender tag.

Cal is a non-binary person. They appeared starting from season 3 and they definitely showed off the struggles and experiences of a non-binary person.


Heterosexuality is being attracted romantically or sexually towards a person of the opposite gender. They’re called straight. They appear the most in our environment as well as in the media. I believe everyone already knows about this sexuality.

Otis is the main character of Sex Education. His advice throughout the series is very insightful. Every one of his relationships is very interesting. (especially with his friendship with Eric).
