Witty (and pretty unsexy) tale of feminist porn has nudity.

This fictional origin story of the first porn magazine created for the female gaze is an entertaining, yet insightful, look into a time and place unwittingly defined by a burgeoning women's lib movement. While the scintillating subject matter and technicolor aesthetic will be what initially draws viewers into Minx, it's the crackling chemistry and unapologetic sincerity of the cast that will keep them coming back. Lennon Parham stands out as the relentlessly supportive sister of the magazine's bumbling feminist founder. As does Jessica Lowe as Bambi, the lovable porn star bent on finding her hidden skill set and reaching new professional heights. Bambi does for adult film stars what Schitt's Creek's Alexis did for socialites.

In case you're wondering, yes, there's a lot of nudity here. The second episode may have even stolen Euphoria's crown for the most penises shown on screen. Yet, there's a surprising lack of actual sex, at least in the first few episodes. The show is less about steam and more about poking fun at both the patriarchy and its own protagonists. As the show's star, Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), puts it, "Our penis is for political purposes". But don't worry, there's still plenty to excite. In fact, watching this charming crew scheme, falter, and scheme some more while navigating misogyny, censorship, and the unfortunate fashion of the 1970s is an unadulterated good time.
