Description

When you love someone, how does it feel? And when you desire someone, how is it different? In Mating in Captivity, Esther Perel looks at the story of sex in committed couples.

Modern romance promises it all - a lifetime of togetherness, intimacy and erotic desire. In reality, it's hard to want what you already have. Our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. And often, the very thing that got us to into our relationships - lust - is the one thing that goes missing from them.

Determined to reconcile the erotic and the domestic, Perel explains why democracy is a passion killer in the bedroom; argues for playfulness, distance and uncertainty; and shows what it takes to bring lust home.

Smart, sexy and explosively original, Mating in Captivity is the monogamist's essential bedtime listen.

A lifetime of wisdom

Complete, accurate, enlightening, fun and moving, highly relatable for everyone, many lessons I wish I hadn’t had to find out the hard way through years of intimate experiments.

Esther Perel is a trailblazer

Mating in captivity helped me reimagine many ideas about my relationship. It is both liberating and comforting to know that there are more ways to feel, think and express our love and desire. It’s eloquently written and perfectly presented.
Life changing!

Every human needs to hear this book!

Probably the most insightful and fascinating book on the struggles of maintaining a happy, healthy, and passionate relationship in today's world. I'm telling everyone to listen because it really helps to put current/past/future relationships into perspective no matter where you are in your life. Listening to Esther's articulate explainations were highlighted by her beautiful accent, too. I cannot wait to learn more from her and I wish to meet her in person. Remarkable woman. Kol hakavod! Bravo!

A mind changer!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to, or brave enough to start looking at relationships in a different way.This book will serve the interest of anyone feeling oddly empty in certain parts of their relationship and wanting to fill those gaps with answers which will surprise even the most liberal thinkers among us.

It is a refreshing take on age old arguments and honestly left me with opinions about love, relationships and sex, which were very different to when I started reading this book.I will forever be thankful for the enlightenment and look forward to carrying these lessons with me into the future.

eye opening. divine!

Ester is so charismatic. every sentence in the book is meaningful. i also enjoyed her beautiful vocabulary and accent. this is one of the best books i have ever had.
now i understand why my marriage with the most loving man failed. we did not know what caused the misory. now it is clear to me that i was erotically illiterate.
i believe that the book must be added to the school curriculum. erotic intelligence is paramount and essential component of a healthy relationship with self and others.

Insightful and a life changing must read book<br />

We spent many wonderful hours as a couple listening to this audio book. It opens the brains to listen through its scientific approach to erotic intelligence through looking at marriage and relationship with different eyes. The authors research, experience and ability to explain made both of us go through many aha moments. We truly feel this book has added enormous value to our relationship and we will revisit it again and again. It is a must read.

There is NO school for relationships, intimacy and eroticism. This book is at its core giving you the keys to unlock an incredibly important knowledge about these worlds.

Marvellous

A very insightful view on eroticism in long-term relationships. Esther Perel's accent makes it all the more charming to listen to.

Rebellious, inspirational, refreshing

Esther Perel is a charismatic thinker and writer. Her thoughts on eroticism are extremely challenging, her ideas on the way psychology works in the context of erotic relationships are so honest, they feel like looking yourself in a maximising mirror. Her work is simply groundbreaking in our simplistic, puritanical, sin/shame-oriented societies.
Her work derives from her experience with couples of all kinds of social, cultural and sexual backgrounds (except transgender couples).
This book is a treasure. I would say especially for young people who wonder about matters of sex, eroticism, phantasies, realities, and for parents.

absolut empfehlenswert!!

kurzweilig, schöne Sprache, tolle Beispiele und viel Stoff zum Nachdenken diskutieren, reden, philosophieren. Ein Buch, das Sexualität und Beziehungen in ein anderes Licht rückt und mit viel Leichtigkeit verdeutlicht wie sich diese verändern und entwickeln. Ein wundervolles, erfrischendes Buch!

Essential Reading

I am a huge fan of Esther‘s work and found so much perspective and new understanding for relationships and our human condition. Really engaging, thorough, honest and her accent is incredibly charming. Feels like an intimate conversation!

Content superb read with a very thick accent

“Mating in Captivity” is an excellent book and I recommend it highly. Unfortunately the author chose to narrate it herself and her accent is strong, which requires 100% of one’s concentration to listen.
