Marriage is Not the End of Romance, it is the Beginning


  1. “For [erotically intelligent couples], love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning. They know that they have years in which to deepen their connection, to experiment, to regress, and even to fail. They see their relationship as something alive and ongoing, not a fait accompli. It’s a story that they are writing together, one with many chapters, and neither partner knows how it will end. There’s always a place they haven’t gone yet, always something about the other still to be discovered.” Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic + the Domestic
  2. “It is only when we are clear about who we are, that we can truly deepened in relationship and take on the hot desires, and willful sex that is needed for long term relationship to make it through the years. Remember, we change over time. Who we were erotically when we entered our love relationships may have shifted.” Pamela Madsen, Five Tips For Passionate Long Term Relationships
  3. “…we should definitely try out more, experiment more and grow more sexually. Unfortunately it seems that the longer many of us are with a partner, the less creative the sex becomes. It should be the other way around…” Porn Sex vs Real Sex – The Differences Explained
