And when people are deprived of sex, it's this whole set of feelings and experiences that they're deprived of — not just the act. So the first thing in the session is to make clear that the conversation is not about sex: The conversation is about loss, and it is loss on both sides. My guest, Esther Perel, writes in her new book "The State Of Affairs" (reading) there is one simple act of transgression that can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity - an affair.
The person who is no longer interested sometimes is not so happy about that either. There are two people who are experiencing a sense of loss in their relationship. Yet this extremely common act is poorly understood.
You'll meet other people in your age and interest group through a series of face-to-face six minute "pre-dates" in a private area at a local upscale restaurant/bar. After a successful "match" and quick exchange of e-mails, I asked Theresa to a local concert.
PEREL: I think that if you just ask a question about what to do with the discrepancy around desire for sex in a relationship and you look at it just as if it's that what people miss is the act of sex, you sometimes fail to understand what it is that people are really asking for.

On why some people have affairs When you pick a partner, you pick a story, and that story becomes the life you live. And sometimes you realize, after years of living those parts of you, that there are other parts of you that have virtually disappeared. And there is an expression of longing and yearning.On the challenge of defining infidelity There is no universally agreed-upon definition of infidelity. Longing for connection, for intensity, for a sense of "aliveness," which is really the word that many people all over the world would tell me when they are having an affair."It's never been easier to cheat — and it's never been more difficult to keep a secret," she says."The majority of affairs would normally have died a natural death. The definition is often subjective and in the hands, or in the mind, of the two people that are part of one relationship.
