Trashy Or Tremendous: Would You Attend A Flirting Tour Of London?

We know what you're thinking: Before you can answer this life-defining question, you require a little more information about the precise nature of a flirting tour. Well, here goes. Hosted by social and cultural anthropologist Jean Smith of Flirtology, you're invited (for a fee) to take a walk on the wild side for an evening "survival tour," where you and around 10 others will take in the sights of London while learning how to catch the eye of a potential mate.
Smith's tours promise to take attendees to unrecognised flirting goldmines in our fair capital. Where? Art galleries, book shops and, er, supermarkets.
Participants are given practical tuition and theoretical guidance on the two-hour tour, where Jean's "three methods of attack" are revealed. All sounds a bit Apocolypse Now, doesn't it? Depending on your pre-existing flirting skillz, there are two different levels of tour. Interestingly, the "beginners" tour happens around Covent Garden, while the "advanced" tour takes place on Carnaby Street, which suggests to us that people located in Covent Garden are statistically easier to pull.
What's your take? Can the ability to linger seductively around the pints of milk in Tesco Metro ever truly be taught? Is there a science to flirting? Would you give it a try? Let us know!

Flirting Walking Tours cost £25. Visit Flirtology for more information.
