Mating in Captivity
- Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
- By: Esther Perel
- Narrated by: Esther Perel
- Length: 8 hrs and 11 mins
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.
a mature perspective on love

Very engaging. Resonates deeply.
Love ester’s writing style and voice. Easy to listen to, highly engaging. I have adhd and sometimes find myself switching off for large blocks of time whilst trying to listen to an audiobook or podcast but I was more or less actively listening to the entire book, a feat in itself. This book doesn’t provide any clear cut answers, but I don’t think it’s supposed to. It more so holds up a mirror for you to notice patterns in your own behaviour and in your relationship. This book is more about challenging the status quo of committed relationships rather than a how-to guide on bringing sex back into the marital bed.
