    I have a nagging suspicion that “taboo-ness” here is not just a correlation, but a source of bias (specifically, response bias.) Instead of graphing by it, could you try correcting for it? You’d get, I think, something like “interest given complete disinhibition,” which seems useful for predicting e.g. fetish demand.

    (I’d also like to try a few other things with the data; would it be possible to get a raw CSV to play with? Reconstructing the X/Y-axis-mapped variables is easy enough, but the color-mapped variable is a bit harder.)

    What did you use to make that chart? It’s different from the charts in previous posts.

  3. […] Sexualtaboos by AellaGirl – A graph of sexual fetishes. The axes are “taboo-ness” and “reported interest”. Taboo correlated negatively with interest (p < 0.01). Lots of fetishes are included and the sample size is pretty large. […]

    If trans people were counted in the chart gender data, would futa be the pinkest one?

    Interesting and surprising in many cases.
