Chemistry has long been used as an excuse for people to try to pick up unwilling romantic partners. But don’t get this wrong – come-on lines such as “Have you ever noticed the deliberate mistake in the Periodic Table?” or “You and me babe, we could make potassium permanganate together” rarely succeed. No, we’re talking sexual chemistry here. The stuff. Pheromones. Once thought to have more to do with psychology than chemistry, sexual chemistry can now be bought in pocket-sized vials for just under $25 from the backs of fringe publications. But beware: since small boys began, chemistry has been responsible for many explosions, especially in the pants region.
