Human Sex Map [➦]
Release Date and Last Update
*** Note that this tool has several limitations raised by the Review Team. See section Clarifications by the Review Team for further information.***
The Map of Human Sexuality is a poster and interactive Website intended to show in a humorous way the scope and extent of the human sexual experience. Hang it on the wall, and push pins into it to show where you've been!
This is a fun thing to have up in your living room or bedroom. The poster includes a glossary of some of the more unusual practices and terms, and might just give you some new sex ideas to try in the bedroom. Interestingly, I've even received an email from a couples therapist who says he uses the Map to help get his clients talking about sex.

To Access the Tool
This map contains many practices and terms about sexuality. It is quite long to read and understand, thus demonstrating the author’s sense of detail.
However, the position and layout of the different countries, seas, and islands appear to have been chosen randomly in some places, which may send a contradictory message that can be highly questionable. For example, the “Vanilla Sea”, referring to coventional sexual preferences, is next to the “Island of Non-Consent”, referring to illegal sexual preferences, such as pedophilia or rape, while the two terms are opposite.
Additionally , several terms used in the country “Gender and Orientation Identity” are offensive to members of the target communities. For example, the term "hermaphrodite" is used to refer to intersex people.
However, if we ignore these problems, it is true that this map can reveal new practices regarding sexuality, whether they are normalized, bizarre, disturbing, or even illegal.
