Love, Lust and Libido: The Chemistry of Sex

Birds do it. Bees do it. Even educated fleas do it ...

And we're going to do it, too, on Thursday, May 15, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Peep into the science of sex by exploring the laws of attraction, tinkering with sex toys and finding answers to questions surrounding the hot topic of sex. As always, your ticket will include complimentary food and drink samples, fascinating presentations and intriguing activities. Don't be uptight. Join the fun! 

  • Be tempted by sinful sips by Helm's Brewing Company, The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing Company, Aztec Brewing Company, Twisted Manzanita Ales and California Fruit Wines. [Aztec cannot attend due to the fires.]
  • Sample bites courtesy of Lil' Piggy's BBQ, West Coast Tavern, Feast On This and Carriage Trade Catering.
  • Let our scientists show you the dangerous side of a midnight rendezvous with a bed of nails and the science behind morning breath.
  • Take it slow and make your own fun Super Slo-Mo Video, thanks to A Little Scene. [Canceled due to the fires.]
  • Do you like it hot or do you prefer it cool? Experiment with chemistry and learn how temperature-sensitive lubricants work.
  • Find out what the buzz is about—take apart adult toys to see how they function.
  • Delve into the mechanics of the mind during a chat about the chemical reactions that occur in the brain when lust or love take over. 
  • Practice your sexy laugh during a sassy comedy show by Robert Timothy.
  • Discover the primal urges that still drive us today, and find out how understanding the laws of attraction can help you create a successful relationship.
