If you're anything like me, and let's face it, you aren't, you are into incredibly strange sex. If you're nothing like me, you might still take a prurient interest in the sex lives of us perverts. If you're anything like me in a different way, and some of you are, you have probably spent years of your life having to memorise the details of the deep and superficial fascia, the veins supplying the colon, the actions of different neurotransmitters and so forth.

There are a wide number of rather puerile dirty mnemonics used to remember various medical details. Googling will doubtless return many of these. They certainly appear to work. However, there is also this (see link).

Given the Byzantine complexity of human sexuality indicated by the linked map, it's very likely that most aspects of anatomy and physiology, or for that matter pathology, are in one way or another relevant to it. For example:

Macrophilia - How tall can a human being realistically be without having to have elephantine proportions?

Classic S&M - How strong can the current and voltage safely be? Where should the electrodes be attached?

Erotic asphyxiation - Effects of hypercapnia on penile vasodilation.

Multiple breasts - The "nipple line", i.e. possible locations.

And so forth. I'm sure this would be very memorable, and it could be designed to wipe clean too.

       One would be in my library. [+]   

       <Slightly off topic> Me and my girlfriend have both taken A&P. Our "pillow-talk" can be quite clinical, when we are both feeling nerdy.

       I have had the disturbing experience of imagining what was under my hand on various levels when i was touching someone affectionately. It was not a good thing.

       I'm afraid to try the link... yet, I'm also afraid not to.

       That linked picture should have a "You Are Here" sign on it - I bet that would freak out the people who actually have that paraphilia.

       agree, phunduggy   

       and show up on google earth?
po, Jun 11 2008
  

       Thanks, [phundug]. I now have a picture on the hard drive with a big red arrow on it which i'm tempted to post.   

       Something i've always wondered. People come out as gay. Are you supposed to come out as something else as well? As a gerbil person? As a furry?

       That's not really a map, is it? I mean, it doesn't convey any more information than a list - it's just dressed up to look as if it does.

       It is a map, because a particular proclivity borders on several others most of the time, and they in turn border on each other. It might not be accurate. Maybe it would work better in a higher number of dimensions.
nineteenthly, Jun 13 2008
  

       Maybe it would work better if you painted it on someone's body in a variety of coloured food products ?

       If i could bun an annotation, i would place a croissant in a strategic place, [eighth].

       See link. A peculiarly appropriate application was used for this image.
