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.

A non-judgemental take on modern relationships

It's a pleasure to listen to Esther Perel read her own work. I love that this is not a step-by-step or a how-to. Instead, Esther shares her wisdom in an open and honest discussion of some issues couples face.

A game changer

Truly opened my eyes to a whole bunch of nuances around sex and erotic communication.
This book changed what I expect from my partner and gave me tools with which to ask for what I want.
Shared with my wife and she loved it too.

A different way of looking at relationships.

She empowers everyone in the relationship. Gone are the days when you are dependant on your spouse for your happiness. Now you have to own your happiness and not be apologetic about it.

Very captivating. Eager to listen to it again

For the first time I am understanding how desire needs distance.
For me, this is an amazing resource to learn about desire.

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!

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.
