After Money Heist and Cable Girls, Toy Boy was another Spanish TV series that made its way into the heart of many Netflix watchers. Atresmedia produced Toy Boy Season 1 and 2, and it first premiered in September 2019. Toy Boy is as steamy as it is mysterious and is the story of a group of male strippers who live in Marbella, Spain, and cater to the needs of the uber-rich.

Toy Boy collectively has an IMDb rating of 6.4 out of 10.

Is Toy Boy Worth Watching?
Although the trailer may make it seem like the show is nothing more than sexual innuendos, real sex scenes, and naked male strippers, the Spanish show Toy Boy shares many things in common with Money Heist and Élite. By that, we mean murder, mystery, and intrigue. In addition to that, the cinematography of the beautiful and scenic places on the coast of Spain would make you want to start planning a trip as soon as possible.
