According to the plans, the men and women will also be served specially concocted perspiration cocktails and given a lecture on scents.
This idea originally belongs to Bompas & Parr. They explain the science behind this bizarre-sounding idea: "We know that pheromones – the airborne compounds secreted in our sweat – play a role in sexual attraction. Our body odour is largely influenced by Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) molecules, which are genetically determined and linked to the immune system."
"Experiments have shown that opposites attract; we tend to judge potential sexual partners as more attractive if their MHC composition is different from our own. Further, MHC is also linked to sexual preference, so differences in body odour are detected and responded to on the basis of an individual's gender and sexual orientation," continued the dynamic duo.
