Lust, Sex & Brains & Sensory Adventures in Dating with Guerilla Science

Lust, Sex & Brains & Sensory Adventures in Dating with Guerilla Science

Forget love at first sight, what about love at first nose?

Join Guerilla Science for a multisensory exploration of attraction. Discover how your senses, brain and body react when you meet a special someone, and investigate the science behind those magical moments.

They will guide you through a series of sensory adventures based on scientific research in neuroscience, genetics and psychology, as we deconstruct dating and analyse attraction, and attempt to uncover how you really choose a lover.

You’ll discover what the smell of sweat tells us about a prospective partner, how eating kale and carrots transforms flirtation, why long vocal chords are sexy, and so much more.

This titillating experience is open to daters of all persuasions – single, partnered, straight, LGBTQ, polyamorous, and everything in between.
