Science of Fear and Lust

Image 1 / 8

A pretty face, an attractive body, and a lingering glance are sometimes all it takes to instigate the feeling of lust. But how exactly, does it do that? And what is fear? Where does it come from? Does it help us or hurt us? Can we erase fear? And if we do, what will the consequences be? ‘The Science of Fear and Lust’ exposes the surprising secrets behind these emotions, exploring the scientific processes which go on within our bodies to generate pleasant and overpowering feelings. Lust and fear influence a vast range of human behaviours and through a series of scientific experiments this series will explain how we can also control these intense feelings.
