It has been a little while since I last did a movie review. It's not because I did not watch movies or neither is it because none of the shows were worth it but I guess pretty much was due to the fact that I've been watching a lot of main stream movies these days and those reviews can be found anywhere else easily. #HipsterGonnaHip
Anyway, I was introduced to this show "The Little Death" recently and I managed to get a copy of it. I was 1st drawn to it because it was about sex and it's a comedy so I thought nothing can go wrong and I guess setting such expectation did give me a great element of surprise. And by you reading this probably already spoilt the fun of it.
The Little Death is like Love Actually but the sex version of it. It's interconnected by a few different characters and stories. Which is kinda like my favorite chick flick he's just not that into you as well.

Something that really impressed me was that it's not just one of those shows where they use sex, boobs and hot actress just to fulfill the box office need. It shows a very raw and real side of couples and sex. The truth that no matter how much you love each other or how perfect you are a couple in the day, there will be minor differences in life especially sex that comes in between couples.
This is something that I've always stressed about in couples. It might sounds shallow or even a little crazy but the fact is that sexual compatibility is just as important as any amount of compatibility as anything else. You might not know but many relationships and marriage simply fall out as sex as their biggest issue.
Not doing the way the other person like it, not doing as much as the other person or maybe even difference in physical. These are just basics.
In the show, they also touch on the fact of sexual festish. One of those things that maybe even your husband or wife might judge you for. Are you able to handle the person you love the most and want to spend the rest of your life with have weird sexual fantasy? How far can you go? How weird is weird? 3some? BDSM? Swinger? Public sex? And how far are you willing to accommodate? I know, many might say that sex is not everything in a relationship but the irony is that it can be something that breaks down everything.
Sex is something very intimate and something that "should" only be done with the one that you person that you have agreed to marry, love, take care of and be "fateful" to. It might sounds totally reasonable to many of us because since young, we have been "educated" in a way be it through schools, religion
But have you stop and think about it before, if sex is like dancing it means that no matter how much you love somebody and how lousy that person is at dancing, you can only dance with that person simply because you love him/her? Or play badminton or tennis only with that person because you love that person and this is an unique activity that you have to do with that person no matter how big a difference are your style in?
How can someone dance hip hop with a person who can only dance tango? My analogy here might be a little far fetch, or is it? It is only far fetch if your mindset if fixed because sex is different from anything else. It is sacred and special. Or is it not? Is it really that different?
Whichever the case your believe is when it comes to sex, the power of this show is showing you the fact that sex CAN in fact be very very complicated for couples. No matter how perfect you are a couple by day, by night, every other couple might have difference and such difference need communication and even certain compromising to be made in order to have a strong and loving relationship. Sex therapist plays a very big part but the ball (no pun intended) still lies in your hand about how open are you to fulfill each other's desire.
Would this be less complicated if sex is something that can be accepted like something totally unrelated with love? Something like dinner. You can have dinner with anyone without going home feeling like you've cheated on your wife because it's just dinner. And your wife will not get angry because you ate dinner with someone else. Because dinner is not exclusive, because having dinner with someone else doesn't means you love that person more. It could just means that your wife ain't free for dinner or because you want to eat Chinese food that night and your wife ain't into Chinese. This might sound crazy but imagine how many couple would still be a happy and perfect couple together if this is how sex is written?

Mr.Smith says it might not be like Dark Knight but I still give it 5/5 for its genre and uniqueness. Way better than Don Juan for sure. ScarJo didn't save that show.
P.S This show is "The Little Death - 2014." Not to be confused with another show "Little Death - 2011"
