Synopsis

One of the world’s most respected voices on erotic intelligence, Esther Perel offers a bold, provocative new take on intimacy and sex. Mating in Captivity invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

Drawing on more than twenty years of experience as a couples therapist, Perel examines the complexities of sustaining desire. Through case studies and lively discussion, Perel demonstrates how more exciting, playful, and even poetic sex is possible in long-term relationships. Wise, witty, and as revelatory as it is straightforward, Mating in Captivity is a sensational book that will transform the way you live and love.

Mating in Captivity
Average rating
3.8 / 5
Insightful book into relationships!
August 6th, 2013
I really enjoyed this book, Esther Perel has done her research and really seems to understand what often happens to couples whilst they are in relationships. It validates many of my own experiences. People are complicated so there is not one definitive solution, she gives us a variety of cases, situations and the creative solutions She guided her clients with. If you are in a new or long term relationship or are wanting to be in one you may get a good deal of insight as to why you repeat certain patterns from one relationship to the next, and have the opportunity to shape the one your in differently.
