Sexual Life is a 2005 comedy-drama, independent film written and directed by Ken Kwapis, who would go on to chronicle modern romantic life in the better-known He's Just Not That Into You in 2009. Produced by Ken Aguado and distributed by Showtime Independent Films. Cast members include Azura Skye, Carla Gallo, Anne Heche, Elizabeth Banks, Tom Everett Scott, and Steven Weber.
Like La Ronde, Sexual Life has an unconventional narrative structure—identified by Charles Ramírez Berg as the "daisy chain plot," in which there is not a single protagonist, but, instead, one central character links to another.

Reception and awards
Variety found its portrayal of the subject matter to be limited: "this semi-comedy of manners and hormones suffers from being much too neat and tidy, aesthetically and dramatically sweeping aside a lot of the messiness that comes with sex."
The film won the Copper Wing Award for best director at Phoenix Film Festival.
