In this candid and provocative interview, Esther Perel talks about the relationship between sex and power, desire and arousal, and what we need to do to heal our current sex culture.
We are currently in a crucial moment of sexual cultural revolution. The Harvey Weinstein effect and the #MeToo movement has ended the long standing silence around sexual harassment and other abuses of sex and power. Where do we go from here? Esther Perel shares some of her thoughts about what work needs to happen to heal the wound of sexual violence and create a healthier sex culture for us all.
In this interview, Esther Perel also shares her thoughts about men and women’s deepest erotic wounds, what holds us all back from being more erotically alive, and how we can harness more sexual vibrancy in long term relationships.
We discussed themes from Esther Perel’s new book, The State of Affairs, in a 3 part podcast series:
