The true story that inspired Netflix’s Sex / Life
The dramatic comedy was inspired by the memoirs of BB Easton, author of the book 44 chapters about 4 men. In the text, the writer takes a tour of the couples she had before meeting her husband.
“Seeing these beautiful actors portraying characters based on my partners and me while sitting on our couch, in pants from being at home and in quarantine, is incredible. We are very happy. It’s been a dream come true that I didn’t even know I had, “the author told Oprah Daily.
In the interview, the writer mentioned that 44 chapters on 4 men is a whirlwind tour through the four couples he had and which are divided into “A tattoo artist turned American marine, a rebel from a motorcycle club, a boy-faced punk rocker and a heavy metal bassist.”
While the concepts are similar, the book departs from the Netflix series in one important way: Easton never joined one of his exes, as Billie does on the show. Still, for Easton, who was not on the show, the change makes sense.
“It is the same background of the book. Is there anything better? Does it get better than this? Billie, the protagonist,is exploring that question. Nothing is 100% perfect in a long-term relationship. Love is there, there is a way to find how to get back to it, “he explained.
Sex / Life is available on Netflix.
