Publisher's Summary

In long-term relationships, we often expect our beloved to be both best friend and erotic partner. But as Esther Perel argues, good and committed sex draws on two conflicting needs: our need for security and our need for surprise. So how do you sustain desire? With wit and eloquence, Perel lets us in on the mystery of erotic intelligence.

ground shaking

I applied my personal relationships when role playing would have probably solved my future ex husbands that got away. I am honored by this couple; to let strangers this experience with them. Wonderful insight and education to powerfully (re)introduce the complexity of attraction.
