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.

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.

Amazing.

It continues to amaze me how Esther succedes in revealing the real reasons behind our "everyday" problems - and thus teaching us as well to look beyond.

The patriarchy is real

If you could sum up Episode 8 in a few words, what would they be?
Ethics of divinity and virtue.

Yes, definitely. Esther is a master of her craft.

What was the most compelling aspect of this episode?
Let your kids figure out morality for themselves. Don't block them at the conventional level.

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.

Another good listen.

Thanks Esther and the team for producing this. This recording delves into the hidden places of men & women that need to be discussed more if we are ever to live together en'masse together without issues.
