An update to the Map of Non-Monogamy

Way, waaaaaay back in 2010, I created a Venn diagram (well, if you can still call something a Venn diagram when it has dozens of bits that intersect in some pretty mind-bending ways) of the variations of non-monogamy I've observed.

The Map of Non-Monogamy ended up all over the Internet. I've seen it in Fetlife, presented at academic lectures, and I know of at least one Masters thesis that includes it.

Now, after seven long years, I've finally done an update, significantly redesigning it and adding relationship anarchy and solo polyamory. Here, in all its glory, is the newly redesigned Map of Non-Monogamy. The preview here is teensy, so you can click on it to embiggen.

I've redesigned the new map as a (big!) 24x36-inch poster. So what say you, O Internet? If I spend a lot of money to have them printed (printing posters that big ain't cheap!), would you buy one?

[edited to add] You can now pre-order the poster! It will ship in late January or early February. Preorders are $15 for one poster or $100 for ten. Pre-order a poster here!

I dont see asexual in that spectrum at all... and what does RA mean? I think some nonmonogamy comes from differing libidos.

Relationship Anarchy, I'd think.

Asexuality is usually referred-to as a sexual orientation rather than a relationship style.

Many of these categories could include an ace partner, or a set of partners where mismatched libidos (which can happen in allosexual as well as asexual people) are the impetus for a choice to pursue non-monogamy.

It's a huge poster, so it'd be the same price as the Map of Human Sexuality ($20).
