Who Is Otis

16 year old Otis is a shy guy. At one time, the perfect life for him would have been being the kid in the corner who got to exist but wasn’t forced to be part of whatever was going on. Not to imply he is against socializing. His best friend, Eric, seems to take up a bit of his time and he doesn’t push him away or seem annoyed by him. Also, they have the kind of relationship which allows Otis to feel comfortable with the idea of Eric being around his mom Jean.

Now, it isn’t clear where or who Otis’ dad is but he clearly is close to his mom. Not so close that he’d talk about his sex life with her, and listen to her professional or personal advice. However, it is clear that he does love her, listens, and uses what he has learned for the premise of the show – being a teen sex therapist. Something which begins awkwardly but Otis gets better with time.
