How to be sexy
We explore the intimate connections between food and sex and unearth the truth behind the many food/sex myths deep-rooted in our culture.
- The Sperm Race
Over a six month period we followed a group of subfertile men on a specially designed diet to see whether a change in health and lifestyle could improve their sperm.
- The Semen Taste Test
We recruited some brave volunteers to help us find out if you can detect what a man's been eating simply by tasting his semen. This may offend some people.
- Eating on a Date
We replicate a study from the 80s to discover whether a woman in the noughties still leaves food on her plate if she fancies her date.
- Premenstrual Syndrome
With a team of specialists we investigate into claims that increasing the amount of calcium and vitamin D in a woman's diet can help reduce the symptoms of PMS.
- The Power of Smell
We conducted some cross-cultural tests to discover whether the smell of certain foods can sexually excite a man's penile blood flow.
Folklore has it that there exist magical foods which can entice the senses and arouse our libido. We tested the myth to see if aphrodisiacs really work.
