Sensory Speed Dating
25 September 2017, Queen of Hoxton, London
Prepare to leave your inhibitions at the door, put on a blindfold and use your senses to discover the science behind attraction.
This Autumn we’re launching a three month Superculture residency with Mothership Group in London, starting with our ever popular Sensory Speed Dating at the Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch. Join us for a series of sensational sexy challenges based on cutting-edge research in neuroscience, genetics and psychology.
This is no ordinary speed dating event – come singly or with friends for an evening of seductive experiments and unexpected connections that will challenge you to spice up your love life with science! Discover what the smell of sweat tells us about a prospective partner, how eating raw kale transforms our capacity for flirtation, and why looking into each other’s eyes can be so sexy.
Hosted by writer, presenter and comedian Timandra Harkness (resident reporter on Radio 4’s social psychology The Human Zoo), and Dr Carmen Lefevre, Associate Consultant of UCL’s Centre for Behaviour. Smell, hear, taste, see and move your way to a greater understanding of the subconscious processes that drive our attraction to each other.
