Mating in Captivity (2006) examines the question that every individual in a marital relationship wonders: Is it possible to maintain passion over time?
Esther Perel, author, believes it is, but she believes we can only generate sexual excitement by reconsidering modern commitment ideals and better understanding of how our life stories influence our actions in the bedroom.
If we can achieve this, we will provide our relationships with the wonder and excitement that keeps passion alive.
