Cult classic manga by Atsushi Kamijou that was serialized between 1988 and 1992. Contrary to the title, it contains no sex at all (it's not without fanservice, though). In fact, "sex" refers to "gender."

The place is Japan and the time is TheEighties. Kaho is your not so average high school girl who, when her class goes on a school trip to Okinawa, seizes the opportunity to look for her childhood friend, Natsu, whom she hasn't seen in six years. But instead of Natsu she finds a strange young man named Yuki, a petty criminal who takes her for a ride in a stolen car, gets her involved in a gang fight and almost gets her killed. As it turns out, he's Natsu's friend, and the two of them seem to be involved with gangs and live from smuggling and selling stuff in the black market. Kaho is not one to be easily intimidated, though, and the manga chronicles the trio's adventures in Okinawa and Fussa, involving high school delinquents, weirdos, heists, the US army, the Korean maffia, yakuza, even ''more'' yakuza, and a shady assassin.

With its stylish artwork, movie-like atmosphere and quirky, charismatic characters, ''SEX'' is often regarded as Atsushi Kamijou's best work. [[spoiler: ThatsWhatSheSaid...]]

* InnocentCohabitation: Yuki, Natsu and Kaho end up living together, and are often shown walking around in various states of undress, there's playful flirting and groping (OK, so it's not ''that'' innocent) but apparently nothing more happens. Natsu and Kaho take a bath together once but they're fully clothed, and at one point Yuki and Kaho sleep together - just sleeping.



* Les Yay: In spades between Kaho and Female Yuki who is heavily implied to be in love with Kaho.
** Also present between Kaho and Chigira.
** And one of Kaho's female school mates is very much attracted to her in a one-sided RomanticTwo-GirlFriendship way.

* MistakenForPregnant: When Kaho gets sick due to PTS Meg Brown assumes she's pregnant with Natsu's child. Natsu is a bit taken aback, given that he'd never had sex with her.
