A bit about the brightness
Things may go bump in the night but they certainly don't in the dark. When the brightness of these scenes were analysed, it was determined that a mid-lightness was preferred. With 0 being dark and 100 being full brightness, the scenes averaged at 51, almost exactly in the middle.
A mid-ranged brightness in watts would be 40w (4w LED equivalent) and 500 lumens. Creating a light bright enough to see one another, but not too bright that insecurities are illuminated.
Does lighting really affect mood?
It sure does, and extensive studies prove it. Lighting has long been used to treat seasonal affective disorder - even after a year of being locked inside, UK Google searches are up year on year for 'SAD lamp' (+89%) and 'vitamin D SAD lamp' (+49%) due to the effects of less light.
But what about libido? Does lighting actually have any effect on sexual desire?
According to a 2016 study by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology, lighting has a great effect on the testosterone production of men. Men exposed to brighter light experience more than 3-fold increase in sexual satisfaction, and an increase in testosterone from around 2.1 ng/ml to 3.6 ng/ml after just two weeks. So it really does affect men being in the mood.
