Gwyneth Paltrow’s raunchy new Netflix series Sex, Love & Goop has been hailed as ‘life-changing’ by viewers who say it is the ‘best sex education they’ve ever received’.
The six-episode series sees the actress-turned-wellness-guru team up with five sexual health experts to work with couples struggling with their sex lives, including parents who have started to feel more like roommates.
The couples are exposed to a range techniques they can use for overcoming their problems, including practising energetic orgasms’ or playing with a Wolverine claw-sex toy in bed.
Jaiya Love, a somatic sexologist, explains that orgasm doesn’t have to take place in slot A. It could be anywhere on their body. To prove the point, she later tells one husband: ‘Right behind the knees, that’s like genitals.’

Although the advice is sometimes unusual, it has been a hit among viewers
Even though the advice was sometimes unconventional, it proved to be a hit among viewers. One tweeted: ‘Sex, love & goop on Netflix is REALLY good. It’s like love languages but…in sex.’
Another posted: ‘I’m really enjoying #SexLoveGoop! This is my favorite content. I think it’s really important and informative.’
A third added: ‘Sex Love & Goop is done so well! This is some of the best intentional programming I’ve seen.’
Gwyneth briefly discusses being submissive in sex, and invites five couples to come along, each with their own issues.
Erika and Damon are married for six-years but feel they are not sexually compatible; Rama, Felicitas and Felicitas have 2 children and admit that they have come very close to divorcing. Camille & Shandra are newly engaged and want to expand their sexual repertoire. Dash and Sera have been tackling infidelity. Mike & Joie have been dealing with mismatched libido and ageing.
Erika and Damon are married for six year but feel they’re not compatible sexually. Damon spanks Erika with a paddle as she lies on a table.
Damon gets emotional when Erika touches his entire body, creating an “energetic orgasm” without any genital stimulation.
Jaiya shows off how effective non-genital stimulation is by engaging in energetic orgasms with her partner.
Erika and Damon stare in shock and awe at Jaiya’s reaction to her partner’s energy. Damon says that’s the point he wants.
Jaiya also introduces them some ‘pleasure products’ to use in their bedroom, including her Wolverine claws. Damon is less certain about the claws, but Erika is excited by the idea (pictured).
Five sexual health experts are available to assist: Jaiya, Paltrow’s go-to intimacy coach Michaela Boehm, tantric sex educator Amina Peterson, erotic wholeness coach Darshana Avila, and bodywork practitioner Katarina ‘Kato’ Wittich.
‘We offer a space to be sexual and not have that be a shameful thing,’ Avila explains.
In the first episode, Damon, Erika and Jaiya are introduced to Jaiya’s five erotic blueprints: energetic and sensual, sexual and kinky, and the shapeshifter.
They discover Damon is primarily sexual, meaning he is attracted to traditional’sexual’ things like intercourse, orgasms and genitals. Erika, on the other hand, is most energetic. This means that she is attracted by anticipation, yearning, and longing.
Hard times: Rama & Felicitas admit in the trailer that they were ‘close to getting divorced’ but were guided through exercises to help see Rama as their dominant sexual partner.
Jaiya provides toys such as handcuffs and a wok cleaner to help them explore these five erotic principals.
Erika says “that’s Hot” because Wolverine claws make Erika scream, while Damon, who thought that his partner was more conservative than he was sexually, says it makes Damon snervous.
Damon uses a variety of techniques to get Erika to lie down on a table, including spanking her with the paddle and wrapping a piece furry fabric around a vibrator. Erika responds positively, even when Damon touches her behind her knees.
Jaiya tells him after the session is over that her entire body is a place of pleasure and pleasure. It’s evident that she twitches in various ways and it feels great.
Damon discovers that his body is much more sensitive than he thought. Erika can bring him to the point where he’s ready to orgasm by touching his chest, legs, and body.
Jaiya performs an energetic orgasm with her partner to show how effective non-genital stimulation is.
Is it just another chore to do? Another woman admitted that her partner compares sex with brushing his teeth, as they try to give their sexual lives a boost.
Honest: There are also plenty of tears in the trailer, which shows participants grappling with a myriad of emotions, including body insecurity
Rama and Felicitas talked about how they lost their spark over years of marriage.
Rama states that there isn’t enough of an environment that fosters intimacy. Felicitas confides that she feels like her husband is a ‘third-child’ and that she has lost interest in sex.
Michaela says, “One of our goals is to end the little boy/mummy dynamics.”
She leads the couple through several exercises, including one that has Rama play the role of an emperor/king, which gives him more control over their sexual experience. He gives his wife instructions about how to move.
He tells her that he loves the way she looks when she crawls. Felicitas believes that their journey can inspire other married couples who feel like there is nothing more to learn about one another.
Camille and Shandara are engaged in another part of the world
