Television host Bill Nye is using his new Netflix series as a vehicle to attack Christian beliefs on sexuality in a peculiar way — cartoon orgies featuring anthropomorphic ice cream cones.

“Bill Nye Saves The World” debuted on Netflix April 21 to cheers of fans who watched PBS’s “Bill Nye the Science Guy” as children. Each episode of Mr. Nye’s new project seeks to “explore scientific issues that touch our lives,” but one in particular covered the “different flavors of sexuality.”

A cartoon character named “Vanilla” preaches on the virtues of purity before a slew of other flavors — male and female — attempt to seduce him with suggestive dialogue and behavior.

“Come on, Vanilla. Nobody wants just one flavor of ice cream. Haven’t you ever wanted to be in a neapolitan?” says one character.

“Come on. It’s natural. All-natural cocoa,” says another. 

“And strawberry fresh from the field. And so creamy and delicious. Mmm,” says a male ice-cream cone.

“Big ice cream in the sky, help me,” Vanilla prays before licking a male character.

“This is on! Oh, yes!” the group cheers in conjunction with a montage of ice cream cones licking each other.

“That was cool, wasn’t it?” Mr. Nye said as the clip ended and his studio audience cheered.
