Big Little Lies starring Hollywood A-listers - Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz - has been creating waves for bringing out the best of bestselling book by Australian novelist Liane Moriarty and its racy sex scenes.

Nicole Kidman particularly has been receiving a lot of attention for her love-making scenes with her on-screen husband - Alexander Skarsgard. She plays the role of a woman trapped in an alternately abusive and passionate relationship on the show and the fifth episode of the HBO show, which airs on Star World Premiere HD in India, explores the complexities of the disturbing marriage between Celeste (Kidman) and Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Early in the episode the gorgeous and wealthy couple will be seen passionately locked in sexual intercourse on the family's kitchen countertop.

Abusive Perry is almost nude as he places his wife on the kitchen counter while he wears nothing but a bathrobe. The intensity of their passion is overwhelming, but is underscored by the terrifying instances of emotional and physical abuse showcased in the mini series. In an effort to salvage their marriage, in episode three, following another violent outburst by Perry the two go to a therapist for help.

While Perry, partially admitted to abusing his wife to the counselor, in a private session Celeste is more guarded. Her therapist, expertly portrayed by Robin Weigert, delicately probes the topic of her husband's violence.

Celeste, while internally visualizing the various humiliations and abusive wrath she endures from her husband (and in its own twisted way how the abuse turns her on), lies to her therapist, protecting her spouse from any potential ramifications.The episode will air on Star World Premiere HD today.
