Storyline

The elusive qualities of sex appeal are examined through the lens of science in this probing documentary, which reveals the evolution and function of every component of human attraction. In this study of the science behind "chemistry," you'll learn how the subtlest sounds, sights and smells can affect sex appeal, and how genetic, hormonal and neurological factors create sparks between people.

it is scientifically based, very informative.
9 October 2013 | by (China) – See all my reviews

for people who don't have biological background, they may find this show to be boring, because it doesn't have lots of sexual images.

it has given quite a few science research results, which were unknown to me.

however, this show only talked about sexual attractions between opposite sex. it didn't mention anything about homosexual attraction which could make this show more complete.

overall, i enjoyed watching it.

and for fans of parker young, you will see him in a few scenes wearing only a pair of tight black trunk.
