Inhaltsangabe

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.

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.
