A gay speed dating event being hosted by Date in a Dash this Valentine’s Day in London is taking things to a whole new level.

The event allows men to quite literally size each other up before exchanging phone numbers… by getting naked first.

The event’s description reads:

On arrival to our venue in Balham, eager speed daters will be given dressing gowns to change into. From here on in, all guys in attendance will line up facing one another and then reveal themselves to each other.

After the big reveal its time to get dressed and compose yourself, grab yourself a well earned drink just before the speed dating begins! The fun begins here as you get to mingle, chat and flirt with the gorgeous bunch of guys you’ve just seen naked.

So, basically, you show up, get naked, flash your goods, get dressed, and then start speed dating.

Sounds efficient. And like it could be fun… maybe… if you’re into that sorta thing. There’s just one teeny, tiny catch:

The event is only open to gay men between the ages of 23 and 35.

That’s right, fellas. If you’re 36 or over, you’re too old to get naked with the other guys. And don’t bother lying about your age either, because they’ll be checking IDs at the door.

The event goes from 7:30 p.m. to midnight on February 14. Entry is £20 ($25 U.S.) plus a $2 processing fee and promoters make it very clear there is “100% no guarantee” you’ll find anyone you like.

But at least everyone you encounter will be under 35 years of age.
