Sex & Secrets – The Little Death + DVD Giveaway

The Little Death. The impression I get from the name of this movie is so far from what it actually is. The Little Death is not actually about death at all; it is moment the French call ‘la petite mort’ or better known as an orgasm. Yep that’s right orgasm. This Australian comedy about relationships, sex, love and everything taboo will have you in stitches from laughter. If you enjoyed Love My Way and Offspring then you are going to love The Little Death.

The Little Death

Orgasms and fantasies are not often talked about out in the open but The Little Death has you wanting to know more. The taboo topics are laid out for the world to see and what we see, we love. From the first 5 seconds of this movie I was hooked, it doesn’t tip toe around issues and confronts them head on. This laugh out loud comedy looks at the sex lives of 5 ordinary couples living in suburbia and you will be shocked, surprised and moved by their relationships. While it is humorous, it also has a sense of realism. These five couples could be your neighbours, brother, co-workers or even yourself.

Foot fetishes are only the beginning of these sexual pleasures. When a dangerous fantasy is shared by Maeve, her partner Paul struggles to make it a reality for her. Another woman Rowena can only find complete sexual pleasure when her husband Richard is in pain. Phil has an affair with his own wife Maureen without her even knowing! Monika the call centre operator for the deaf gets caught in the middle of a dirty sex chat call while Dan and Evie try to reignite their spark through role play. And it wouldn’t be complete without the attention diverting new neighbour who connects them all.

The Little Death

With an incredible cast you will see some familiar faces: Josh Lawson (Anchorman 2, House of Lies, Any questions for Ben?), Bojana Novakovic (Rake, Charlie’s Country, Satisfaction), Damon Herriman (The Water Diviner, Candy), Lisa McCune (Blue Heelers, Sea Patrol), Patrick Brammall (Offspring, The Moodys), Kim Gyngell (Full Frontal, The Librarians) and Lachy Hulme (Offspring, Howzat!, The Hollowmen).

The Little Death

    I gave my hubby for his 40th birthday a laminated certificate that offered me up as his sex slave for a month. After the month he’d wished I’d been more generous and he asked for a 2 mth extension. I’ll leave you guessing as to whether I obliged!!

    • 31/01/2015 / 7:04 pm

      haha I love it! I bet know what he asks for for every occasion 😉

    Even at my age, I still look forward to having Sex on the Beach, or getting Between the Sheets and experiencing lots of Long, Hot Nights. A wonderful cocktail of ways to spice up my love life!

      Woot woo! That’s what we like to hear Hilda. Go you sexy thing 🙂

    I have just literally had a hot bath with my new bath salts and grabbed some sexy smelling lotion for a joint massage. But, upon entering the bedroom in my nakedness, find hubby snoring his head off!! Oh well, no ‘The Little Death’ for me tonight!

    Role play with a few ‘adult’ toys doesn’t do anyone any harm, definitely helps spice things up a little and make the bedroom a little fun

    I am a little embarrassed to tell I my age but I do still have my memory, for the time being anyway and I can remember with much delight the times my wife and I, oh no sorry my friend and his wife went on a few Mystery Flight packages. I’m not totally sure what set everything off. It might have been the surprise of being given tickets for flights and accomodation or maybe the excitement and mystery of not knowing where they were going or the exceptional company she had with her. But without doubt my friend was always astounded but delighted to walk through the door of their weekend apartment and find his wife had gathered those waterery “bedroom eyes” giving rise to just attention. Therefore my moto is surprise and excitement for a spiced up great sex life.

    Well I have read the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy so my crazy fantasy are somewhat tame in comparison but let me tell you my it DID give me plenty of wild ideas.

    I always said I would never be caught at a restaurant colouring in a picture of a man with a moustache making a pizza (or other similar picture) because when you go out to eat with small children you are given colouring-in kits. (I know, amazing!)
    There are three reasons why I was sucked in:
    Firstly, it is good fun to colour in a picture and I’m fantastic at not going over the edges.
    Secondly, I’m always too tired to have a conversation with hubby and we’ve only left the house because neither of us has the energy to throw beans in a pan. I also think of it as me time. Who needs massages or spa days when you can spend 15 minutes in silence neatly filling in a cartoon of a pizza chef? Even if it is quite challenging creating a realistic skin tone from 4 primary colours. Honestly how do they expect small children to manage? (I carry my own skin tone crayon)
    Thirdly, when sex is non-existent I try to look really sexy colouring in. Ooh look I’ve gone over the lines, naughty mummy.

    One night while we were still dating I turned up at his apartment in nothing but lingerie and a trench coat. Thankgod his housemate didn’t answer the door! Worked well though, had the desired effect.

    I was told a story once about a man who took his wife hiking. They had been having a lot of problems and ended up making love on the ground in the middle of the woods…in plain sight

    To spice up you love life a little olive oil with chilli as a massage oil doesn’t go astray but watch the sensitive areas!

    My partner and I took up yoga classes together because we read somewhere that it helps your staying power by up to 3 times as long and leads to far more intense orgasms. All to do with strengthening your core and pelvic floor muscles and holding isometric muscle contractions. Anyway, everything was going swimmingly after a few classes and we’d even had a giggle creating our own downward facing dog position except my partner was behind me in class one week and got exceedingly aroused in rather revealing pants much to his embarrassment and the amusement of other class members. Needless to say that was the last time he showed his face at that yoga class.

    So it may be not that original but my girlfriend and I tried the bondage route, wouldn’t you know she’d be reading Fifty Shades of Grey and it was to be the first of quite a few different role playing ideas except it didn’t quite go to plan. We managed to lose the the keys to the handcuffs on our very first tryout !!!! If it had been me who had been the one free, I’m sure i’d have managed to break them open but I was the one who was in cuffs and she couldn’t work them open with the pliers so had to go and get her Dad (my future Father in-law to be !!!) to come and open them up. He had a good laugh about it anyway and suggested in future I handcuff her 🙂

    Going to the bar and pretending we are 2 completely different people meeting for the first time – really adds spice to the relationship without costumes

    I know that saying this was friends is the oldest cliché in the book but honestly it really was friends and has nothing to do with me ! The two individuals in question were both big footie fans but supported opposite teams so to spice things up they used to get dressed up in their respective footie team kits and whoever’s team had had the more successful results at the weekend used to get to call all the shots for that nights activities !

    Myself and my partner decided on some role play – so I was going to be lonely at home and he was to be the postman with a package to cheer me up!!!! So I dressed in skimpy underwear as I was supposed to be cleaning the house i.e. bored at home. He dressed up and went outside (to the garage) where he was going to come back in a minute, knock on the door, which I would open and be presented with his lovely solid package. So out he does, a short while later, there was a knock on the door which I answered, except it’s not him, it’s actually a real postie with a parcel. Not sure who got the bigger fright him or me, but thankfully I haven’t seen him since, and there’s been no role play in our house ever since!

    For us, love life doesn’t often mean sex, but simply our relationship. So if I want to spice things up I find the old adage to be true – the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. My husband is always appreciative of me preparing his favorite foods.

    My craziest fantasy which may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I definitely wouldn’t kick Mark Zuckerberg out of my bed! I find his geekness so sexy and manly, he can press my buttons any day 😉

    Once when i was young and carefree I was backpacking with a friend through canada/usa. We had become friendly with a couple of guys we had met up with on numerous occasions who were doing something similar. Seeing as staying in backpacker hostels did not give us much time alone, one night me and the guy made out in a central park in Vancouver, in the rain under a big tree (we nearly got caught too lol).
    Another story I have is about a friend/colleague I used to work with. She got caught up in the whole S&M scene, dumped her lovely boyfriend, took off the UK to hook up with a guy nearly 20 years older than herself (she had met him over the internet) – from what i heard did a whole lot of S&M stuff with him until finally after a year or so he went too far, police was called and she eventually came back to Australia (i think some fantasies can get taken a little too far).

    I think it’s good to be creative and fun, maybe using things that you already have, like a blindfold, and some ice cubes or chocolate strawberries and just trying something new!

    The weirdest fantasy I have ever heard about was once on an episode of Jerry Springer, where a couple came on a discussed their fantasy of the guy getting dressed up as a baby (complete with nappy and adult-sized dummy), which he did every single time they had sex, but he wanted her to dress up as a baby too, so they were on there arguing about that!!!

    An ex and mine decided to spice things up with a threesome. To be honest it was more his idea than mine – I guess I might be a bit less on the adventurous side. Anyway we all got on like a house on fire for the evening enjoying a couple of bottles of wine but when it got to the excitement part of the evening it transpired that the lovely girl in question was way more into me than my boyfriend. Needless to say he was not impressed and never suggested a repeat of that idea. I had a great time though 🙂

    The craziest fantasy i have ever heard of is a little too X rated but my partner and i spice up our relationship by having hotel stays and role playing different people it keeps things fresh.

  37. 24/02/2015 / 5:01 pm

    I have heard of men who get off on acting like babies and wearing adult nappies. Now that’s crazy!

    well hubby and i tried to spice things up twice and both times we flubbed it. first time we went to an adult shop and was recommended to try this little machine that gives you electric shocks and we took that home to play with it but we ended up putting the pads on our arms and hands and laughing our heads off as the electricity convorted our muscles and twisted our hands up (because we had it on the highest settings). The next time we went and bought chocolate sauce, strawberries and whipped cream and got the kids babysat. We got the ingredients out but then just ate them unsexily and watched tv. So we have good ideas but never finish them lol
