Rosie Wilby: The Science Of Sex

Funny Women Finalist Rosie Wilby reprises her Fringe Report award winning show investigating the science of attraction, sexual chemistry and sexual identity which was a sellout at Cambridge Science Festival for two consecutive years. Her ‘love doctor’ persona was so successful, she’s been invited to host several events in character – from the South Bank’s World Book Day literary speed dating to late nights at London Zoo and Cruising For Art at the BFI.
 
What makes us gay or straight? What turns us on? What are pheromones? Why are we attracted to one person and not another? What happens chemically in the brain when we fall in love? What is the scientific origin of kissing? Do aphrodisiacs work?
 
Rosie has appeared on BBC Radio 4 Midweek, Woman’s Hour and Loose Ends and at Glastonbury and Latitude festivals.
