I like the google search insights because they work like a dashboard by providing all critical info in one place. This one works the same way. Looks like the S word beats L word here. The google search insights shows us that when it comes to love western part of the world is searching more for it where as for sex, it is the eastern part which is searching more. Also, the S searches outnumber L searches thrice.

The above is a very good example of partition chart in which spatial trends are meaningful. It shows preferences of several women plotted to reveal where the pleasure is. Okay, enough detail, I leave it to you to interpret.

Fleshmap [NSFW], which is featured here earlier, is an incredibly cool way to plot intimate data. They have gathered data about touching, looking and listening and plotted it in several creative ways. The site is full of insights. But do not browse from work as some of the charts are pretty graphic.

This is clever visualization and art work. Jason Salavon took centerfold images from all the playboy magazines between 1960 and 1990 and scanned these images. Then he normalized the data to create the above images. Even though it doesn’t mean anything on the outset, when you know how the image is generated you would marvel at the thought of it.
