The ‘Casual Hook Up’ infographic from Virgin mobile suggests the company is savvy as to how people use its products and services. The flowchart provides many humorous examples of the faux pas, awkwardness, rewards and irreverence that often surrounds casual hook ups.

Indeed, the situations in which the amorous congress is often enveloped can lead to many ambiguous rules of etiquette. For example, Virgin Mobile suggests that if your partner is sleepy you should let them stay the night—sleeping people don’t talk too much anyways.

The Virgin Mobile infographic also distinguishes between the different sets of expectations that derive from where one hooks up -- a book club certainly has a different atmosphere than a nightclub, after all.

What is most savvy about this infographic is that it acknowledges the often vague social niceties and manners that are the result of the myriad methods of communication in contemporary life. Stats for Hook-Up Textiquette Charts Trending: Older & Mild
