Kinsey A Biography – Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy


Sold by: Munchie's Wonderland

The fascinating life of a controversial scientist whose human sexuality research ignited the sexual revolution.

Alfred Kinsey’s Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male (The Kinsey Report), published in 1948, was an explosive bestseller, followed in 1953 by his even more radical statistics on female sexuality — both based on over 18,000 case histories. But Kinsey’s exploration went much further than that. Bisexual himself, he experimented with many of the behaviours he was hearing about, and his wife and close colleagues experimented as well. Kinsey pioneered observation and filming of sexual activity, the findings anticipating, and being confirmed by Masters and Johnson thirty years later. The
revolutionary nature of his views on female sexuality could not become current until the feminist movement of the 1970s and 80s. Kinsey remains a controversial figure today
