Sex mapping in the USA

A new website from New York’s Museum of Sex is developing an online record of America’s sexual history. By allowing people to share their personal histories and mapping the encounters, Mapping Sex in America aims to “chronicle Americans’ stories of sexual practice and the evolution of America’s sexual customs”. The museum says the project is directly inspired by Alfred Kinsey’s “thorough and thoughtful” work, but it’s a lot more fun than that makes it sound (maybe London's sex museum Amora would have promoted it differently).

The site’s personal stories give a unique snapshot of everyday sexual lives – from plaintive calls for the “best ever” chance encounter to get back in touch, to the occasional credibility-stretching “then the Swedish twins arrived…”, it’s never less than intriguing and open. A word of warning – once you start exploring, don’t expect to get any work done...
