Intimacy Challenge

On the island of Thassos grows a very rare variety of the Lotus flower, Nymphaea Anamnesis. If you drink its extract, whatever you say or do for ten minutes after drinking it, you won’t remember. It's kind of like Snapchat but “in life.” On this episode we’ll meet a group of friends who partake in the Lotus extract.
