Video: Video: The Bittersweet Beauty of Unrequited Love: Jesse Bering at TEDxMalibu

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation," reads Henry David Thoreau's immortal line. This applies to our sexual lives as well, and in this talk, Jesse Bering explores how our lustful desires for those we cannot have quietly shapes us as individuals. Jesse Bering, Ph.D. is an author, psychologist and former director of the Institute of Cognition and Culture at Queen's University Belfast. He is the author of Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
