Tonight-Tuesday-June 20-Book Release Party & The Relationship Episode: Sex, Love, Polyamory, Marriage, and More (with Esther Perel)

Excited to be celebrating the release of Salon attendee, Joe B’s book – Madam Jillinghoff’s Bedroom Rhymes, published by another attendee Jon who owns West Philly Press. – All in the “family.” It shall be a grand evening.

Important blog by Tim Ferris about the state of conventional marriage.“If Apple sold you a product that failed 50% of the time, would you buy it?”
– Esther Perel

“I’ve wanted to speak with psychotherapist Esther Perel (@estherperel) for years.

In a cover story, The New York Times called her the most important game changer in sexuality and relational health since Dr. Ruth.

Her TED talks on maintaining desire and rethinking infidelity have more than 17 million views, and she’s tested and been exposed to everything imaginable in thirty-four years of running her private therapy practice in New York City.

In this episode, Esther and I explore:

  • How to find (and convince) mentors who can change your life.
  • What she’s learned from Holocaust survivors.
  • Polyamory and close cousins.
  • Is there such a thing as too much honesty in relationships?
  • Can we want what we already have?
  • Why do happy people cheat?
  • And much more.

Esther is the author of the international bestseller Mating in Captivity, which has been translated into 26 languages. Fluent in nine of them (I’ve heard her in person), this Belgian native now brings her multicultural pulse to her new book The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity (October 2017, Harper Collins).

Her creative energy is right now focused on co-creating and hosting an Audible original audio series, Where Should We Begin.”

Tonight-Tuesday-April 18-The Erotic Literary Salon/Adult Sex-Ed Salon-Live

Last month’s addition of “I love you/I hate you” rants was so very successful it has become part of the Salon’s evening. In addition, “missed connections, romance and relationship rants from around the world will be read by willing members of the audience.

Whether you become a participant of the evening, or sit back and just listen and applause or do all the above, your ears will be filled with erotic, often times sexual explicit words. While the evening enfolds filled with various verbal expressions of love and hate, 6 word sexual memoirs, sex Q&A’s and readings from the attendees, you can sip on absinthe or your drink of choice and eat divine food from TIME.

Do come and introduce yourself to me, entertain a date and/or meet a new potential friend.
