Arousing Discovery About Skara Brae Design

A 5,000-year-old symbol from the Neolithic village of Skara Brae has been singled out by researchers as a potent symbol of arousal in men.
According to an article in The Scotsman newspaper, following random testing of males in different parts of the country, galvanic skin responses showed arousal when they saw designs based on ancient fertility symbols. Skara Brae's "lozenge" symbol was singled out by the researchers as the most potent of all the designs used.
The symbol is found scratched close to where female bones were found buried under the doorway of one of the huts.
The survey has led to a reappraisal of jewellery market research, with new pieces now being designed in response to the unconscious signals being transmitted by the test subjects.
