Based on the international bestseller, "Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence," Esther Perel's bold and provocative new take on intimacy and sex grapples with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

Educational Objectives:
