literally translated means a sweet death, otherwise considered as a peaceful death in which all tensions are released in a manner which is similar to that of the fulfilment found from sexual intercourse.

MORT DOUCE: "A mort douce has been translated as a sweet death which is more considered the death of a person without pain."
