Thinkery21: Science of Sex

February 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Grown ups can enjoy an evening at the Thinkery on their own. At Thinkery21 we close the museum to kids and let adults, ages 21 and up, eat, drink and mingle while experiencing innovative science and art.

From wafting the potent aroma of pheromones to dissecting vibrating toys, Science of Sex explores the ins and outs of attraction, sex and reproduction. This is not your average birds and bees experience.

Why People Have Sex
Join sexperts, Dr. Cindy Meston and Dr. David Buss to learn the ins and outs of why people do what they do (hint: it’s not just procreation).

Fans, Flirting, Figures and Guy Town – the Austin History Center, Austin Public Library shares historical images that document how women attracted the attention of potential suitors and the history of Guy Town, Austin’s infamous red-light district that flourished in the Warehouse District in the late 1800’s.

Sexy Library – Reading is sexy…especially the books the Austin Public Library Pop-Up Library will be bringing! Come explore; romance, kink, the science behind compatibility, the art of the female orgasm, recipes for arousal, the history of sex and how birth control changed everything! No library card? No problem, sign up on site.

Aphrodisiacs – Discover food to put you in the mood with Whole Foods Market.

Vibrating Toy Dissections– Join staff of Space 8, Thinkery’s makerspace, in exploring the mechanics and inner workings of vibrating toys as well as other objects that vibrate at this take apart activity.

Battle of the Pheromones – Determine which Thinkery staff member’s body aroma is the most appealing to you.
