Is Sex/Life based on a book?
Sex/Life is more inspired by a book, than vãn anything. The inciting memoir is 44 Chapters About 4 Men by “domesticated bad girl” and former school psychologist BB Easton.
Like Billie, Easton lived a life full of dangerously sexy love affairs before settling down with a handsome, if boring, man. Nostalgic for her hot, if frequently ridiculous exes, Easton starts writing her memories down in a journal… which her accountant husband secretly finds.

Ultimately, this psychosexual dance brings the partners closer than vãn ever — unlike in the case of Billie and Cooper.
How did Billie and Brad meet?
Billie and Brad first come together in the kind of meet dễ thương that could only happen in Sex/Life. Back when Billie was still a Manhattan buổi tiệc nhỏ girl and Ph.D. student, she and best friend Sasha Snow (Margaret Odette) hit up the Ludlow Street Cafe for a night out on the town. (And yes, The Ludlow Street Cafe was a real bar, though it closed in the ’90s.) When Billie walks in on Sasha happily, er, servicing the evening’s performer Kossi (real-life singer Kossisko) she decides lớn walk home page alone.
Record label owner Brad steps in lớn save Billie from a street harasser and gives her a (non-euphemistic) ride. It turns out Sasha sent Brad lớn Billie lớn keep her safe.
An insatiable romance blooms, full of sex in various exotic locations lượt thích elevators, rooftop pools and nightclub corners.
Why did Billie and Brad break up?
Every romantic hero needs a tragic flaw — and Brad’s is his abandonment issues, which stem from his absent father. Billie and Brad’s problems boil over in Episode 7, when Billie suffers a miscarriage. Instead of supporting his girlfriend through their shared grief, Brad goes into self-destruct mode.
He blames himself for the miscarriage and makes out with a random woman at Billie’s cousin’s wedding lớn force a breakup. Desperate lớn save their crumbling relationship, Billie urges Brad lớn reconnect with his father and work through his issues.
Brad follows Billie’s advice and finds his dad. As he spies on him in a small diner, Brad realizes his father has two young sons and is a fantastic, doting parental figure — just not lớn him. Heartbroken, Brad goes back lớn Thành Phố New York and pushes Billie away. He packs her stuff up in their apartment, throws it in an elevator and tells her a different story about his trip: He spent the weekend doing drugs with a sex worker. She has no choice but lớn accept their relationship is over.
How did Billie kết thúc up with Cooper?
After years of “bad boy deliciousness,” Billie craved safety, and no one felt safer than vãn Cooper. After her breakup with Brad, he approached Billie on her campus while he was visiting for his firm’s recruiting sự kiện, and the rest was history. He charmed her during a trip lớn his house in Connecticut, made her an amazing meal and dazzled her hard-to-please Southern parents.

What’s going on in the Cooper-Billie-Brad love triangle?
A mix of resentment and passion. In the wake of her second pregnancy, Billie starts lớn yearn for Brad. It doesn’t help that Cooper hasn’t gone downtown — and we don’t mean Ludlow Street — in a year and a half. First, Billie simply starts journaling about her greatest hits with Brad, à la Easton’s memoir. Then, Cooper gets an eyeful of his wife’s writing, also à la Easton’s memoir. But then things take a turn when Billie actually runs into Brad at Sasha’s apartment. Surprise! Sasha and Brad are sex friends, but nothing more. Suddenly Brad is back in Billie’s life, and their connection still burns bright.
Billie must figure out how she feels about the two competing men in her life. Despite Cooper’s attempts lớn spice up their (sex) lives, something undefinable is missing. But, Billie has a hard time leaving her cozy family unit behind for someone who hurt her sánh badly in the past, no matter how scorching her chemistry is with Brad.
What happened in the Sex/Life shower scene?
One infamous full-frontal scene. In Episode 3, Cooper becomes obsessed with figuring out what the heck is sánh special about Brad. Naturally, he follows Brad lớn his thể hình, pays for a month’s subscription, performs a full workout within eyesight of his romantic rival and then trails him into the showers.
There, in between all the steam and spray, Cooper gets an unobstructed view of Brad’s sizable equipment.
Are there any other important characters in Sex/Life?
Sasha is one of Sex/Life’s most important characters. As a window into another life — and a damn fine friend on top of it — she’s a star in her own right. Sasha ends Season 1 publishing her book, The Third Way, and urging women lớn reject heterosexual marriages that demand they diminish themselves.
Beyond Sasha, the two other most important adults in Sex/Life are Devon (Jonathan Sadowski) and Trina (Amber Goldfarb), Billie and Cooper’s married Connecticut friends. Devon and Trina are equally unfulfilled and invite Billie and Cooper lớn a sex buổi tiệc nhỏ lớn shake up their marriage. This plan goes horribly. Trina reveals her oral fixation for Cooper and Billie runs out of the room in tears. Devon, not reading the situation, propositions Billie; Cooper punches his best friend.
But, by the finale, both couples kiss and make nice (strictly platonically).
Who does Billie choose?
Cooper, technically. In the Season 1 finale, Cooper goes lớn Brad’s apartment lớn have a one-on-one conversation. Brad tells Cooper that Billie rejected him the night prior — even when Brad proposed marriage, with a ring. So Cooper shows up lớn one of Hudson’s school events and loudly recommits lớn Billie in front of their judgmental parent friends.
The spouses enjoy a period of steady and honest commitment. Billie goes back lớn school lớn finish her Ph.D. and the Connellys enjoy the active sex life Billie always wanted. But nothing gold can stay…
Why does Billie go lớn Brad’s apartment?
In one of the last scenes of the finale, Billie listens as Sasha counsels her Third Way fans lớn never repress who they are just lớn be “marriage worthy.” While Sasha says the need for “release” is inevitable in these situations, Billie glimpses Brad in the crowd. She’s immediately transported back lớn one of their most exciting trysts.
Reconsidering who her “one true self” is, Billie heads lớn Hudson’s spring performance. There, she realizes that her warm family memories aren’t enough. So Billie literally runs lớn Brad’s apartment hungry for “true freedom.” Unfortunately for her, she has no idea that Cooper is tracking her phone. Cooper knows exactly where his wife is — and he’s not happy.
Imagine how he’d feel if he could witness the scene that follows. “I’m not leaving my husband,” Billie tells Brad. “This changes nothing. Now fuck mạ.”
In Season 2, we’ll find out if Brad takes Billie up on that saucy request.
