The theme of ‘love’ and ‘romance’ has been used as a firearm for emotional pornography and indulgence for Centuries: Once upon a time cupid would take aim at un supposing lovers, now, replace gilded heart shaped arrows with the ever enduring Romcom, Pornhub, Tinder, Herbal Essences adverts etc. 

It seems unavoidable and yet it appears we can’t get enough- sprawled on our sofas vacantly staring at the tele watching people kissing in the rain, or on horses, or both. 

Amongst the various pantomime-like depictions of love can we still
grasp a true, visceral, instinctive and primal sensation?
