Step into the office of renowned relationship therapist and TED Talk sensation Esther Perel, and listen in as she counsels couples in crisis due to infidelity, sexlessness, loss, and disconnection. The result? Astonishing insights on how they can make love work – and takeaways for you on ways to repair and restore your own relationships.

About Esther:

Esther Perel is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and provocative voices on personal and professional relationships. A celebrated psychotherapist who has helmed a private practice in New York City since 1983, she has over three decades of experience navigating the intricacies of love and desire.

    "Love these episodes but..."

    This one Esther doesn't explain how she arrived at her hypothesis about the woman's rejection of sex - that it is a rejection of patriarchy. I wish she explained that more.

    "Left me wanting more..."

    Good as always, but needed more specific explanation on how to reclaim pleasure from the hindrances caused by domestic expectations

    "opening up has never been this easy"

    I appreciated the frankness of the discussion and the couple's honest responses, facilitated in such a way that talking about sex is not dirty or shameful, but rather a necessary step for a marriage to work.

    "The opposite of reality television"
    Any additional comments?

    These couples sessions are the opposite of reality television. Where reality TV makes you feel smug and superior, these make me feel vulnerable and self-reflective. They open me up to see where my spouse and I need to improve to help each other. They are beautiful and humbling.

    "Therapy when it's psychological"

    Sexual gratification is the topic of discussion during this session. Good advice for a struggling committed couple.

    "Vaginismus"

    This is the first time I know that this symptom of physically not enjoying sex has a scientific name - vaginisimus. I struggle with it a lot and sometimes wished i could enjoy intercourse as much as my female friends do. None of them understand my situation either. I believe many women experience the same inner struggle that sex seems to be an obligation.. I hope there's more recommendation on how to fix this..

    "To resolve or not"

    The narator was excellent. I still felt more needed to be resolved between the couple.
