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.

One-sided nonsense
12 August 2019 | by persian-belleSee all my reviews

I'll be brief. This film says nothing about the impact that the media and the environment have on how we perceive beauty and all the socialization.

According to this film, a all of us should be attracted to the same people. However we know that this is not true. Someone who looks quite attractive to me may not appear so to someone else.

Our brain helps us choose a potential partner based on many complex factors.

Those who seem to be attracted to the same type of person (solely based on appearance) are generally slave to the messages of the mass media.
