Publisher's Summary

In long-term relationships, we often expect our beloved to be both best friend and erotic partner. But as Esther Perel argues, good and committed sex draws on two conflicting needs: our need for security and our need for surprise. So how do you sustain desire? With wit and eloquence, Perel lets us in on the mystery of erotic intelligence.

Don’t miss the Audible Original series, Where Should We Begin? With Esther Perel, in which she speaks to anonymous couples about their struggles to maintain desire and intimacy. More details at audible.com/estherperel.

    "ground shaking"

    I applied my personal relationships when role playing would have probably solved my future ex husbands that got away. I am honored by this couple; to let strangers this experience with them. Wonderful insight and education to powerfully (re)introduce the complexity of attraction.

    "Riveting... Engaging & Enlighting"

    Esther has a way of making her subject matter come alive.. her thought process is spot on to what reality really "is" ... but what we as beings either never knew or have forgotten for many and various reasons... this is my 5th listen through and I ponder 🤔 and learn more... not just knowledge but understanding that can be applied...

    This is basically a quick peek into her new series she is going to have on Audible's new streaming channels.

    She makes some good points, and sounds interesting. I want to check out her channel.

    Its nice to get a glimpse into this new channel series.
