'There is hardly another area in human biology or in sociology in which the scientist has had to fight for his right to do research, as he has when he has attempted to acquire a scientific understanding of human sexual behavior.' (Alfred Kinsey, from papers found after his death)
'Males and females do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories. Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes. The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning human sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex.' (Alfred Kinsey, Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male, 1948)
Hello. Thanks for visiting our evolutionary philosophy of human sexuality pages. We are currently researching good quality sites relating to our biological and cultural sexual evolution - as a way of collecting and presenting the most important / latest knowledge and research.
Below you will find summaries of articles & websites on Alfred
Kinsey, i.e. latest research, reports & studies on evolution
and human sexuality, the homosexual & bisexual orientation scale, child
sexuality & development, the Kinsey Sex, Gender & Reproduction
Institute & biography.
Compared with other search terms, 'Kinsey' gets relatively few searches. Though he is the most popular Sexologist by far - Shere Hite receives only (20), Masters and Johnson (30). This is probably due to the movie made about his life and his unconventional reputation.
The top ten related searches for Kinsey are;
Kinsey (500), alfred kinsey (185), kinsey report (140), kinsey institute (60), kinsey study (20), kinsey biography (18), kinsey sex (18), kinsey studies (18), kinsey study (15), kinsey research (15)
We hope you find the following articles, reports & websites interesting,
informative & useful.

With his two studies on male and female sexual behavior, Alfred Charles Kinsey (1894 – 1956) brought sex 'out of the closet' and launched the modern era of sex research, influencing our sexual thinking as no one had since Freud. To a public discourse characterized by ignorance and hypocrisy, Kinsey brought straightforward sexual language and facts.
Kinsey's name became a household word overnight with the publication of Sexual Behavior in the Human Male in 1948. This volume was followed in 1953 by Sexual Behavior in the Human Female. The landmark Kinsey reports, written for the academic and medical communities, quickly became best-sellers.
The Kinsey reports generated a storm of public controversy. A vocal minority reviled the studies as an attack on American values because of their frank discussions of premarital sex, homosexuality, masturbation, and extramarital sex. ... His primary purpose was to describe the individual and group variations in human sexual behavior from an empirical biological and taxonomic perspective. He did this by looking at the prevalence and frequency of six different "outlets" to orgasm (i.e., masturbation, petting, nocturnal dreams, heterosexual coitus, homosexual responses and contacts, and contacts with animals) and related each outlet to factors of age, educational level, marital status, occupation, decade of birth, and religion.
From the essay: 'The statistics of the incidence of homosexual activity
in this study are based on those persons who have had physical contacts
with other males and were brought to orgasm. By any strict definition such
contacts are a homosexual experience.
... In these terms the data indicates that at least 37 percent of the male population has some homosexual experience between the beginning of adolescence and old age. Among the males who remain unmarried until the age of 35, almost exactly 50 per cent have homosexual experience between the beginning of adolescence and that age. In addition, about 60 per cent of preadolescent boys engage in homosexual activities, and there is an additional group of adult males who avoid overt contacts but who are quite aware of their potentialities for reacting to other males.
... The histories which have been available in the present study make it apparent that the heterosexuality or homosexuality of many individuals is not an all-or-none proposition. It is true that there are persons in the population whose histories are exclusively heterosexual, both in regard to their overt experience and in regard to their psychic reactions. And there are individuals in the population whose histories are exclusively homosexual, both in experience and in psychic reactions. But the record also shows that there is a considerable portion of the population whose members have combined both homosexual and heterosexual experience and/or psychic responses.

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
We get a lot of people writing to us asking questions about sex. So we have added an 'Ask a Question' feature to our sexuality pages - to help share questions and answers as a way of helping one another.
