New Yorkers left their inhibitions at the door for the MOFAD debut of Lust, Brains, and Taste! This special edition of Sensory Speed Dating focused on how food and drink tickle our senses. 

We teamed up with the Museum of Food and Drink in New York City for a titillating evening exploring how taste, smell, and all of our other senses drive attraction and desire.

The night was full of unexpected experiments and connections, led by comedian and You’re the Expert host Chris Duffy. Participants were invited to see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and move their way through six rounds of hands-on activities. They discovered a greater understanding of the subconscious processes that drive human desire for decadent delights.
