Sexual pairing graph

I'm trying to find a study which includes a graph of sexual pairings. I read one years ago, and haven't been able to find a single one since. It's fascinating data. Basically, they map out sexual interactions between people in a community, and connect everyone together in a network graph.

Is anyone familiar with these studies, and know where I can find them?

I've never seen such a thing, however, I did see a suggestion today that someone should set up a dating site for friends! LOL

Something like this? Google "std exposure chart". You probably weren't looking for the"Debbie Downer" answer though. Dammed reality! :-/

Well, I can't say I'm familiar with these studies but a Bing search of "sexual network graph" turned up this study, of connections at a high school and maybe a few others. Not sure if that helps at all.

Nope, not even close. Those charts are little more than scaremongering, as they assume your current partner has had exactly as many previous partners as you, instead of going by an average. This is very unrealistic, and doesn't take in to account the difference between monogamous couples and those who find a new conquest every night. It seems to ignore the actual probability of exposure, as well.

I'm looking for a graph which maps out the actual encounters between people in a study, allowing you to visualize the connections. It's more about anthropology, and how social networks develop.

Jack_Of_All_Trades, that's the one I saw years ago! Maybe I can find more now. Thanks.

That's the one I remember, fascinating graph.

Some more info and references to similar work here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_network

I could be completely wrong, but it does sound like Chains of Affection. Is that it?

Many sexual network studies focuses on the spread of various STBBIs, though, although I do not know if this is what you were looking for. If it is, then there are other studies.
