Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series

a BBC One documentary in three episodes - Brain sex, Attraction and Love - who delves into our minds to find out how we think and fall in love.

1. Secrets Of The Sexes - Brain sex - The volunteers know they're taking part in a program about the differences between men and women. What they don't know is that by the end of the program some of them will have totally changed their view of who they really are. First they need to complete the BBC's online sex survey about sex behaviors and attitudes. What we want to see is how the brains of men and women differ. Professor Richard Lippa and his colleagues designed the survey for us, and since it went online nearly half a million people world-wide have taken part. And what's more, nearly a quarter of both sexes admitted to having been unfaithful to a long-term partner. We also found that whatever their past experience, men predicted more than twice as many sexual partners in the future than women did.

2. Secrets Of The Sexes - Attraction - Before he's introduced to anyone the scientists are going to identify precisely what is turning women off. Dr. Grammer illustrates this principle with some well known couples: Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife. Two very square faces. Almost identical structure - high cheek bones. These two have the same chin. Very round faces. With an almost identical nose. This is the same. Very identical mouth. They also have comparable nose. And the eyes are almost of the same form and color even. The zoologists believe that there are genetic benefits to inbreeding and that the men and women with similar faces will find each other the most attractive. While women tend to have female brain sex, and men usually have male brain sex, as individuals we are a mosaic, a unique mixture of both.

3. Secrets Of The Sexes - Love - Neuro-scientist, Andreas Bartells, has done this test on scores of in-love men and women and consistently found the same result. Firstly we found some activation in parts of their reward system which explains why love makes you so happy and exhilarated and motivated to be with your partner and spend as much time as you can with your partner.

Comment

Knowing about our brain sex and where our strengths and weaknesses lie has to mean a better understanding of ourselves and each other. I think it's a two-way street and actually that we both actually have to take a little bit more time and effort to understand where the other person is coming from.

 
Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series - Brain sex - Prepare to discover what really separate the sexes Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series - Prepare to discover what really separate the sexes Men and women are just the same. Just as caring, just as promiscuous, and just as good at a three point turn. Aren't they? The results of a new BBC sex survey of 500,000 people from around the globe provide very revealing answers. And five men and five women are put through a unique battery of experiments to uncover the real differences between the sexes. And in a television first we reveal the true effects of sex hormones on the brain by following 29-year-old Max as, under the influence of monthly testosterone injections, she turns from a woman into a man. Our street survey found that on average, men reported 13 sexual partners, while women only managed 7, in line with other sex surveys. But hold on, who are all the men sleeping with? The trouble with asking personal questions face to face is that you rarely get honest answers.
 
Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series - Attraction - It's a speed date and sparks of attraction are soon flying Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series - It's a speed date and sparks of attraction are soon flying Can science predict sexual attraction? In a ground-breaking experiment, a team of scientists orchestrate a unique speed date with a hundred singletons to test their theories - with unexpected results. The scientists analyze our speed-daters bodies, faces, and psychological and social profiles to find out what the key predictors of sex chemistry really are. Our scientists believe they can find the perfect mate where orthodox match-making methods have failed. The perception analyzers who that men and women who decided to date had made up their minds within seconds. With few exceptions the three minute conversation made no difference at all. Clearly looks are all important but it's not the face. It's the body that counts. In terms of physical attractiveness there were two very important physical factors that made all the difference. They were different for men than for women.
 
Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series - Love - Everyone dreams of finding their perfect partner Secrets Of The Sexes movie online series - Everyone dreams of finding their perfect partner Scientists say they've found the secret of long lasting love. They claim they've identified how love movie works and can even tell which marriages will make it. We find out whether being out of love affects how we physically see our partner. Until recently scientists were reluctant to acknowledge any sex differences. Our hypotheses seem to have been supported. And that's to say that the couples who are very happy and showed this idealisation of each other tended to choose partners from among the array of photos that were slightly more attractive than their actual partner.
 

Quotes


The woman who I'm looking for is someone who likes to do the household chores. The sex of our brain is not as clear cut as the sex of our body.

To predict mutual attraction. We are looking at a number of variables and the way that they combine.

The scientists have selected twenty men to meet twenty women at an event which will generate four hundred encounters. None of these people has any idea who the scientists have matched them with.

What about the other stereotypes? Women are more emotional. We're more understanding. Friendlier. Sensitive. Caring. But are women really more caring?

It's wonderful that beginning is wonderful that excitement must fade somewhat. It cannot keep at that pace and that in my opinion is when true love sets in.

We found that men are more interested is sex. Which stands to reason? Men are, after all, much more promiscuous than women. Aren't they?

How many partners have you had sexual intercourse with in the past five years? How old were you when you lost your virginity? We sent our researchers to find out just how much more promiscuous men really are. When they filled in our anonymous online survey, men and women did admit to having the same numbers of sexual partners. Generally speaking, all of the women had a much better memory for the emotional facts. Men were more things oriented. And women were more people oriented. Women like relationships, men like facts.

Dr Fink's morphing device replicate the effect of sex hormones on the face. Moving from extreme female to extreme male. Everyone in the agency was asked to select the most sexually attractive face.

The sex of our brain is not as clear cut as the sex of our body. I'm much more feminine than I realized. While women tend to have female brain sex, and men usually have male brain sex, as individuals we are a mosaic, a unique mixture of both.

Consequently we men neglect them entirely. And that, 125 years ago, was medical fact. If I bring out a male brain and put it next to a female brain you can see there are very little differences in any of the structures on the surface of the brain. The only difference really between these two is their size.
