Our ever-popular event Attraction Lab had a queer makeover and we held our second instalment at The Chateau with Travis Alabanza and Viren Swami! It was an intimate evening filled with erotic experiments, sexy science and research into the LGBTQ+ sexuality spectrum. 

In this masterclass in magnetism guests took part in seven titillating rounds, wearing blindfolds to explore the role touch, sound, taste and other senses play in queer attraction. The Chateau was transformed into a lustrous laboratory and things definitely got steamy!

On hand to answer all our quirky questions was our host Travis Alabanza, performer, writer, theatre maker and LGBTQ+ activist, and leading attraction scientist from Anglia Ruskin University Viren Swami.

No matter where you are in your journey of love, this playful evening had something for you to experience, enjoy, and discover.
