Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sexify is a comedy-drama about three college students who create a sex app for a school project. A Polish series dubbed in English for the U.S. audience, Sexify is a sex comedy along the lines of American Pie, driven by its three female leads. Each episode contains multiple scenes of simulated sex, clothed and unclothed. Full female nudity and male backside nudity are shown. The series also contains suggestive visuals and frequent discussions of sex. The main characters live in a college dorm, and students drink alcohol often. Some drug use is also shown, most notably in scenes where a science student creates and uses his own unspecified drugs. Ultimately, Sexify is about its three central characters, each of whom have unique experiences and viewpoints on sex, and how they influence and learn from one another over the course of the series.

What's the Story?
SEXIFY begins by introducing Natalia, a college student and scientist who would rather spend the weekend developing an app for better sleep than partying with her rowdy dorm mates. But when a professor tells Natalia her sleep app isn't exciting enough to win an upcoming tech competition, she pivots to something flashier: an app that improves women's orgasms. Her unlikely partners are Paulina, who is newly engaged to be married despite being in an unsatisfying relationship, and Monika, who is living in the dorms after getting kicked out of her rich father's home. To win the competition, the three women race to learn as much about sex as they can.
Is It Any Good?
This sex comedy leans into the sex but doesn't have strong enough jokes to succeed as a comedy or rich enough characters to succeed as a drama. Sexify begins with a decent enough premise, especially in that the three leads each have distinctly unique lifestyles and points of view that can play off of one another, but it makes it very clear what to expect from the beginning. It's possible something is lost in translation from the original Polish -- in its dubbed version for the U.S., Sexify lacks the element of surprise typical of good comedy. Here we mostly get content that hammers away at the concept, reminding viewers over and over that sex, in fact, exists, rather than sticking with the characters or the jokes long enough to bring them to a satisfying result.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about what teens think of sex, how many of their friends they think are having sex, and what parents think of teens having sex. It's also a good opportunity for parents to answer whatever questions teens may have, both about values surrounding sex and about safe sex.
How do Natalia, Paulina, and Monika each represent a unique point of view about sex and relationships? How are each of their lifestyles viewed by the other two? How do they change over the course of the series?
What do Natalia, Paulina, and Monika actually learn from their project? Is the project a success? Why or why not?
