The real story that gave Netflix Gender / Life.
Streaming giant Netflix has released a new series, Gender / Life, during the last week of June and it took the internet by storm.
In order to reinvigorate her mundane sex life, she begins to recall her old life and begins to document her wildest sexual experiences in a journal, a kind of memory.
While the show drew a lot of viewers for Netflix, it failed to appeal to common critics and viewers (like IMDb users), as evidenced by its 5.6 / 10 rating.
However, the show is based on the 2016 book 44 chapters on 4 men written by former school psychologist and self-proclaimed “skank” BB Easton.
Like her on-screen counterpart, Easton took to writing the diary after feeling stuck in the calm sea of her life as a suburban wife, mother of two, and school psychologist.
Easton wanted to relive the magic and thrill of her carefree and wild past sexcapades and she found a productive and provocative way to do it through journaling.
Easton thought about using his wild past experiences as a cocktail shaker to spice up his married life. She used the newspaper as bait and one day left it in the open where her husband could easily get his hands on it.
Easton also has a word of warning for women facing the same predicament she once faced: don’t leave your journals to your husband.
