Found this fabulous curiosity as I surfed a "funny images" site, but have no idea where it's from. Looks at least 60+ years old. Any of the fine researchers here have ideas what book/pamphlet/magazine it's from or who may have published it?

I suspect that the figures are probably not that far off....

Interesting graphic, but why did they feel the need to decapitate a lesbian's head and stick it on a post? This also tell me that those who 'practice homosexualism occasionally' need to be more careful with the sunblock!

I'm imagining the person who doesn't get bisexuality and lesbianism, and then sees this chart and has a light bulb moment. That explains it!

When I published it to I've Had Dreams Like That, I pulled it from a cool flickr stream. You might ask the person who posted it there where it came from, because I think they were the first to run it. You can find the link at .
