Esther Perel, Author of MATING IN CAPTIVITY, Featured in Valentine's Day TED Talk

Mating in Captivity By Esther PerelIn honor of Valentine’s Day, Esther Perel, author of the celebrated Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence, is featured on a TED Talk entitled “The Secret to Desire in a Long-term Relationship.” In Perel’s words, the talk focuses on answering the following questions:

  • Why does great sex so often fade for couples who claim to love each other as much as ever?
  • Why doesn’t good intimacy guarantee good sex? Why is the forbidden so erotic?
  • Can we want what we already have?
  • Why does sex make babies and babies spell erotic disaster in couples?
  • When you love, how does it feel and when you desire, how is it different?

Esther is one of the world’s most respected voices on erotic intelligence, drawing on more than 20 years of experience as a couples and family therapist. In addition to her practice, she is on the faculty of the International Trauma Studies program at Columbia University, is a member of the American Family Therapy Academy, and has appeared on many television programs, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Day New York, CBS This Morning, and HBO's Women Aloud.
