PhD student and sex researcher Kristen Mark recommends reading Esther Perel’s Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence:

“It is no secret that maintaining erotic desire can be difficult in long-term monogamous relationships. This elusive problem is the primary focus of my research agenda; making this book of great interest to me. In this book, Esther Perel is provocative in her approach that is incredibly useful for any couples struggling with the sometimes monotonous ways of monogamy. This book will teach you about how a happy relationship is a sexy one! It is as useful for researchers and clinicians as it is for the public looking for refreshing insight into their own relationships.”
