Potion Master Posted February 23, 2011 Share Posted February 23, 2011 A lot of fun treats to read and view this month of the Valentine.... Yesterday in the New York Times: The Threatening Scent of Fertile Women http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/22/science/...r.html?emc=eta1 The Discovery Channel aired a number of documentaries this month - The Science of Lust (2011), The Science of Attraction, The Science of Sex, etc., and it looks like these can still be found for online viewing. Fun as well as informative, highly recommended! There's footage of an experiment in (I believe it was) The Science of Attraction which I saw a couple of years ago which is amazing. They took 10 male subjects, put them in a room alone with a computer screen on which they flashed head shots of 10 females. The men were asked to rate the attractiveness of the women on a scale of 1-10. Most rated the women a 5 or lower. Then they asked the men to put on an oxygen mask - a drop of copulins had been added to the oxygen - and they ran the test again. Same 10 female head shots, but now the men rated the women 9 or above. The new docu, The Science of Lust, has fabulous studies on behavioral changes in men and women when they are exposed to attractive individuals of the opposite sex, or even a suggestion of sex. The peacock factor in men you probably would have guessed, but that women become more helpful and kind was not something I expected to see. Veddddyy interesting! Catch these shows if you can!
