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
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.”
