According to Esther Perel, the couples therapist and best-selling author of “Mating in Captivity,” the term “erotic intelligence” came about accidentally as a spoof on Daniel Goleman’s idea of “emotional intelligence.”
As Perel’s work began to develop around it, she realised it was the perfect term to encapsulate the state of mind she viewed as being different from sexuality.
