Hulu's PLAN B (2021): A "Raunchy Teen [Sex] Comedy"

Here's Hulu's plot summary for Plan B (2021):

After a regrettable first sexual encounter, a straight-laced high school student [Sunny] (Kuhoo Verma) and her slacker best friend [Lupe] (Victoria Moroles) have 24 hours to hunt down a Plan B pill in America's heartland.

Seconds into Plan B, which BuzzFeed referred to as "Hulu's New Raunchy Teen Comedy", Lupe sexted a picture of her panties covered derrière, and Sunny masturbated to a picture of a "man" in her science book. 

While dressing for gym class in the high school locker room, Megan shared, "Oh, did I tell you? We finally tried reverse cowgirl." Subsequently, during gym, Megan straddled, rubbed it against her bottom-grass, and licked a hockey stick. 

The lesbian subplot appeared to be disingenuous and masquerading as a lipstick lesbian subplot, because Lupe shared that she had sex with a boy at church camp, that she had previously performed oral sex on a boy, and she apparently watched heteronormative porn.

Sunny: "Oh, what's a skull fuck?"
Lupe: "It's when a guy puts his junk in your mouth and humps your skull."
Sunny: "That's a real thing?"
Lupe: "I'll send you some links."
In addition to the lipstick lesbian subplot, Sunny and Lupe came upon a couple of nymphoplepts, one of whom demanded that Sunny, "Pee on my face - right now!"

In an effort to get a fake I.D. from a drug dealer, Sunny and lipstick lesbian Lupe argued over whom would "suck his dick" for the counterfeit card. 

Lupe: "What? You can't suck his dick. I'm gonna suck his dick."
Sunny: "Let me sucnk his dick!"
Lupe: "No, let me suck his dick!"
Lupe shared that Sunny masturbates on the regular, "[...] you spent the whole weekend doing flash cards and diddling yourself as usual." And Kuhoo Verma shared with Buzzfeed that her character Sunny reminded her of herself in middle school:
"I looked to 'middle school Kuhoo' and looked to, like, how she navigated the world and felt such awkwardness and weird sexual shame [...]"

Lastly, Plan B is a Hulu Original, an American High film ("Embrace the R-rated reality of high school"), thus far, the film has 100% Tomatometer from 26 film critics on Rotten Tomatoes, despite the fact that the film has a 2021 date, it's considered one of the Best Comedy Movies of 2020, and Emma Specter of Vogue opined: "Plan B Is the Sex Positive Buddy Comedy I Needed as a Teenage Girl" (May 28, 2021)
