Barometer of Love

This morning I spotted the Barometre de l'Amour and immediately knew I had to give it a try. For investigative purposes only, of course.

No, I wasn't wandering around Pigalle. This love-o-meter was stationed right next to the kiddie cars in the summer carnival in the Tuileries.

Here's how it works: insert 2€, place your left palm on the "sensor," and press firmly until the bell rings. Your success rate will appear. In theory.

The score categories were too wonderful. My approximate translations:

Superman - Superman
Etalon - Stud, stallion
Satyr - Satyr
Virtuose - Virtuoso
Chaud Lapin -- Playboy
Champion -- Champion
Puissant - Powerful
Fougueux -- Fiery, steamy
Jeune coq -- Young cock
Debutant -- Beginner

Erotique -- Erotic
Volcanique -- Volcanic
Gloutonne -- Glutton
Experte -- Expert
Voluptueuse -- Voluptuous
Gourmande -- Eager, Hungry
Chaude -- Hot
Sensuelle -- Sensual
Amoureuse -- In love
Insensible -- Insensitive

I'm not going to divulge any personal details, mind you; but let me simply say that the machine doesn't work.

Too comic! If only it were so easy, right?
