The movie "The Little Death" is about five suburban couples living in Sydney, Australia, each of whom are facing certain struggles in the bedroom.

It's because of these struggles that the couples explore different fetishes and bedroom-enhancement techniques with their partners.

"There was a lot of research that I had to do to tell these stories fairly and truthfully," said Josh Lawson who wrote, directed and starred in the film. "I needed to choose fetishes that required planning and forethought. And that was one of the reasons it was called 'The Little Death.' ... It's really how far will these characters go to get that perfect moment of ecstasy? The right kind of sexual encounter for them."
