To remember the Gi related receptors here's a mnemonic:
MAD 2
's are M2 Alpha2 and D2

To remember the Gq related receptors here's the mnemonic:
HAVe 1 M&M
are (HISTAMINE1 ALPHA1 VASOPRESSIN1) and M&M is for M1 and M3

Remaining all mostly are Gs

info from FA

"KISS and KICK till you're SICK of SEX" (QISS and QIQ till you're SIQ of SQS):

This gives the G-protein type (Gq, Gi, or Gs) for all the receptors.

KISS (QISS)
alpha1=Q
alpha2=I
beta1=S
beta3=S

KICK (QIQ)
M1=Q
M2=I
M3=Q

SICK of SEX (SIQSQS)
D1=S
D2=I
H1=Q
H2=S
V1=Q
V2=S

since we're using 'qinky sex' first aid, why not just say

hav 1 m&m - for the Gq
MAD 2s - for the Gi

and

2Bs and 1D 2 hairy vag

2 boobs (b1 ad b2), one D(D1) - 2 Hairy vag(H2 V2)

also, that ones stimulating --> Gs.

Since we're getting 'qinky', i feel like this works better
