A Little Sex is a romantic comedy film from 1982, written and directed by Bruce Paltrow. The plot follows Michael, played by Tim Matheson, a young writer who is struggling to make ends meet working on a book proposal in New York City. His girlfriend, Lisa, played by Kate Capshaw, is a successful advertising executive with aspirations of starting a family. However, their relationship is rocked when Michael confesses to having a brief affair with a married woman.

Michael's infidelity leads Lisa to leave him, leaving him to contemplate his mistakes and decide what he truly wants in life. He seeks guidance from his therapist, played by Edward Herrmann, who encourages him to explore his sexuality and find a deeper understanding of his desires.
