Long-term Erotic Intelligence

Esther speaks of opposites that have battled each other in my mind. She says them with an obviousness that makes me wonder why I could have ever seen them as opposing ideas. They are opposite, but a pair. There is no harmony without both.

With wit and eloquence, Perel lets us in on the mystery of erotic intelligence.
