The Map of Human Sexuality

I found this while preparing to teach a class on the Sociology of Human Sexuality.

As you view all the wondrous lands of human sexuality, you may think fondly of the places you have already visited, or you may look longingly at the exotic countries you wish to go some day. On the site I stole this from you can put virtual stickpins into the map to mark your history (good or bad), or map out your future. Green pins mean you've tried it and liked it, red means you tried it and didn't like it, purple means you'd like to try it, while black pins mean it's strictly fantasy material for you. Don't be embarrassed if you run into a few terms you don't know - not everyone is up on the exact definition of "shirtcocking" or "frotteurism" but that's what Google is for, right? You can find the original map page here.

When placing stick pins, don't get hung up on who was the doer and who got done. if you were, or wish to be, on either side of the listed activity, put the appropriate pin by it. (And don't even pretend you aren't at least a little interested in seeing how many pins you can legitimately put in.) Don't forget to check the islands in the south-east - that's where the strippers are.

Once you've put in all the pins you wish to, you can save this visual representation of your sexual journey and share it with your lover, your friends, or if you're really hard core, in the comments section here on the Ministry...

Don't be a chicken - here's my map...

Is it sad that my favorite part of that map is the Firefly reference? It's been so long since I've been laid that I'll have to download a patch if I ever do it again.

I've never even heard of a few of those (foreign languages? Really? That wasn't just Gomez Addams?), but I was surprised that there weren't more that I hadn't heard of, if that makes sense. Never let it be said that my Women's Studies degrees weren't good for something.

Nice to see that SOMEONE has the guts to put up their map! What is with the womenfolk, Herr Doktor? It's like they think we are buying the vanilla images they try to put up...

And people always ask me why I like to travel. Case in point.

A female friend of mine actually did post hers on facebook.

That's hardcore... her folks probably read that.
