About The Voice of Love and Attraction

What role does our voice play in attraction, seduction and intimacy? And to what extent is how you speak a given? Tonight, we explore these questions with voice trainer Elizabeth Ebbink. Drawing from her experience in singing, theatre and psychology, she guides us along different dimensions of the voice, and associated psychological factors, that play a role in how we come across. What are for instance the effects of speaking pace, pauses and melody? Analysing examples of well-known voices, Elizabeth sheds light on the role of the voice in intimate relationships. In an engaging manner, she invites you to expand your repertoire. Marvel at the startling impact of the voice!

About series Love & Sex

What makes us sound attractive? Can you have more than one romantic partner, or none, without feeling ashamed? And how to flirt and have sex freely while avoiding sexual harassment? In this series, we examine different dimensions of love, sex and attraction. We start with the role of the voice in intimate relationships. Next, we interactively explore what love and sex might mean nowadays, in a time when both sexual liberation and social safety are high up on the agenda. Together, we will look for better ways to express and do justice to our diverse sexual and romantic preferences and desires. Let us talk about love and sex!
