EROTIC INTELLIGENCE

ESTHER PEREL WANTS TO IMPROVE YOUR SEX life. So listen to her. Her lucid insights fill two books, mesmerizing TED talks, and a voyeuristic new podcast (Where Should We Begin?) that features her real couples-therapy sessions. She’s even consulted on one of our favorite shows (Showtime’s ). Most of all, Perel just gets us: “The level of rejection men have to prepare for, the fear of inadequacy they have to deal with—no woman has to prove herself a woman the way a man has to prove himself a man.” Thank you! To become a memorable lover—and stoke the passion in your relationship—raise what she calls your “erotic intelligence.” Start with this quiz.
