Daters discovered how our senses drive our desires in this playful, interactive evening exploring the science of attraction. Led by a neuroscientist and comedian, the audience threw on blindfolds and tested their inhibitions.

Guerilla Science held a sultry evening for couples, singles, and the curious, exploring the neuroscience and psychology of lust, love, and desire. Brave New Yorkers saw, heard, smelled, touched, tasted, and moved their way through six rounds of hands-on activities that revealed what science has uncovered about the subconscious processes behind that ‘spark’.

Neuroscientist Ashley Juavinett teamed up with our guerilla comedian host to lead guests through an evening of sensational discovery, unexpected experiments and new connections. Together they uncovered how our brains and senses can spice up any date night – delving into everything from vegetables to sweat.
