Map of Non-Monogamy Re-Revisited

[Edit] There is yet another update to the map here. You can also find my book on non-monogamy here.

Because my brain is totally broken...

I woke up very, very early this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, because it suddenly occurred to me that entire classes of non-monogamy were missing from the last version I did. Plus, I thought of a lot more edge cases. And since the only way I can get this stuff out of my head is to put it on the Interwebs, here it is!

As before, click for a bigger version. A much, much bigger version, that will pulverize your bandwidth the way Chuck Norris pulverizes your pelvis. Or something. I don't know.

Love the map, wondering about the tags...
Love the map, game (Onyx) and journal.

Question, though. As a computational astrophysicist (I really am - did computer simulations of supernovas), why the Stellar Nucleosynthesis tag?

There's kind of a story behind that.

A while ago, a discussion came up in my network about the technical definition of the word "orgy," which has a lot of connotations attached to it (is it an orgy if there are only three people? Is it an orgy if there are fifteen people but they only have sex with their partners and nobody else?). At last year's Dragon*Con, my sweetie joreth and her other partner and his wife and their other partners (who are probably reading this and can out themselves if they so desire) decided to have what anyone using any definition of the word, no matter how conservative, would describe as an orgy.

There were several threesomes as well. During one of those, I used a stainless steel NJoy sex toy on joreth. Stainless steel is mostly iron and nickel, both of which are formed during the process of stellar nucleosynthesis in stars (nickel is one of the end-stage products in most stars). So I was commenting about how glad I was that we are not orbiting a first-generation star, since that meant that the planet had nickel and iron in the crust, and so I was able to own such a sex toy...and, well, ever since then stellar nucleosynthesis" has been a code word for anything involving group sex in my social set.

That is f-ing hilarious. I only wish I could use that in my astronomy classes...
