Alfred Kinsey

In 1948 Kinsey irrevocably changed American culture and created a media sensation with his book “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male”.

In the course of his teaching he discovers an astonishing dearth of scientific data on sexual behavior. When students seek him out for advice about sexual concerns and problems, he realizes that no one has done the clinical research that would yield reliable answers to their questions. Inspired to explore the emotionally charged subject of sex from a strictly scientific point of view, Kinsey recruits a team of researchers, including Clyde Martin, Wardell Pomeroy and Paul Gebhard. Over time they refine an interviewing technique, which helps people to break through shame, fear, and guilt and speak freely about their sexual histories. When Kinsey publishes his Male study in 1948, the press compares the impact to that of the atom bomb.

Kinsey was a biologist and a sex researcher. He released reports about sexual behavior of American people in 1948 and 1953. In short, Kinsey was an influential figure who was fascinated with sex research and contributed to the society.

When I read about the Kinsey Reports, there is a lot of data on many different aspects of sexuality, but people seems to only notice the sexuality of minors. Why is that?
