The Telegraph reports on an art installation in Kiev featuring sleeping women on display. Both the subjects and the viewers sign a contract stipulating that if a viewer kisses the “sleeping beauty” and she opens her eyes, they have to get married.
WOAH. I mean woah. That’s a whole lot of pressure to put on love at first sight. Not superficial at all, uh-uh.
From what I can gather, the female participants are thinking of this as a sort of fairy-tale dating service, expecting to go on the feeling they get when a potential husband kisses them. Pheromones: Making intelligent decisions on who to shack up with for thousands of years!
Hell, I’m lazy enough to think of this as a viable alternative to dating sites.
