Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

this book is challenging and scary at times. Because it throws out all the old conventions and Norms. There is no normal. That is the first thing you have to accept an internal eyes. Once you do that then your relationship is whatever you want it to be and whatever is necessary to make it work. Monogamy or non-monogamy. There's no normal except what is normal for you. Your relationship is important so you need to start thinking outside the box for other ways to make it work. This is not your parents marriage or relationship it's not your brother's marriage or relationship this is yours.

When it comes to sex, common wisdom holds that men roam while women crave closeness and commitment. But in this provocative, headline-making book, Daniel Bergner turns everything we thought we knew about women's arousal and desire inside out. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with renowned behavioral scientists, sexologists, psychologists, and everyday women, he forces us to reconsider long-held notions about female sexuality.

a confused series of clinical studies and trials with no clear unifying narrative. The title lead you to believe the book will tell you what women want I know less of what women want after this book then when I started this book is boring and just dry.

the narrator is a slow monotone uninteresting voice

You can learn everything you can about how to make women want you and still fail to master the inner game of being a man who naturally attracts women. Some guys even study all kinds of seduction secrets on attracting women, yet they only end up in terrible relationships with low-quality women. Most guys simply don't understand how women think. If you asked the average guy what women want, he may say things like confidence, money, or ridiculous good looks, but all of these things are just the tip of the iceberg.

this book was very interesting if true it opens up a lot of doors and provides a road map to dealing with women. On a side note the impression I got from the way to deal with women as they appear to be emotionally immature self-indulgent children that are unable to govern their emotions our passions but simply go from feeling from feeling emotions promotion and the job but the man is to be like a parent or father help guiding her because she's unable to get herself. this is not a negative or a Slam against women just the impression that take away based on the way the author describes women in the book. Anyone have any similar thoughts

We all come to a point in our lives where we finally ask the ever-looming question, "Is this all there is?" And most of us coast along afterwards, just accepting that the answer to that question is probably, "Yes, this is it." Sometimes, though, we're lucky. Sometimes we run into the right people at the right time. Ryan and Jennifer are at that point in their marriage, asking that question. Luckily, tonight at a friend's holiday party, they're about to run into those very right people at exactly the right time.

What did you like best about this story?

Set rules and expectations before you swing. Have lots of discussion on feelings.

What does Cooper S. Beckett and Kat Stark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sincerity in the characters. I believed the characters were modeled after real people.

Any additional comments?

Do a Part two. Continue the story.
