What is Sex/Life (TV) About?
Sex/Life is an American drama television series that delves into the intricate dynamics of past and present desires, marriage responsibilities, and self-discovery. The narrative centers on Billie Connelly, portrayed by Sarah Shahi, a housewife and mother residing in a suburban setting. Billie finds herself caught in a midlife crisis, reminiscing about her liberated past with her passionate ex-boyfriend Brad and contrasting it with her current, more settled existence.
