I like this one so much better:
The Varieties of Intimate Relationship Chart
That certainly looks good.. but it's missing atleast one category; Commercial. This is where there's a direct financial incentive to engage in sexual acts. When in my former poly group, I brought this category up. In the Poly Map, it seems to only refer to escorts, but in point of fact, sex work goes beyond that, also covering porn, of both the hard and soft variety (which, in turn, can now include some conventional movies). This is, ofcourse, a rather controversial subject, and may be a large part of why I had certain trouble in my former group -.-, but I did notice that porn, atleast, has been discussed in this forum before
