"Go around to sites full of NSFW content and document the markup"
covers the relevant section of the process, I think. Of course, this
is only worth doing if you don't believe rel-tag is sufficient as
Tantek suggested, in which case you should look for examples of where
it wouldn't work, and see if they make up a large enough portion of
online content to not be dismissed as outliers.

I didn't mean to suggest you weren't following the process. I was
just trying to point out the humorous situation I was imagining, in
which someone walks by, sees you looking at a porn site, and then you
turn around and try in vain to explain "Seriously, I'm doing research
for a microformat."
