  Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, often shortened to Kinsey Institute, exists "to promote interdisciplinary research and scholarship in the fields of human sexuality, gender, and reproduction".

The Institute was established by the pioneering sex researcher Alfred Kinsey in order to put the work of his research group at Indiana University on a firm institutional base as it pursued pioneering studies in American sexual behavior.

Her tenure as director was a turbulent one, marked by controversies over access to materials in the Institute's extensive archival collection of photography and film documenting sexual behavior, the role of sex research in the AIDS crisis, and the appropriateness of Reinisch's role as a syndicated sex advice columnist.

 The Anti-Kinsey Report
The foundation for this claim is Reisman, who has made a career of attacking Kinsey and his research -- and, as it so happens, is writing a book purporting to document "the devastating effects of Kinsean ideology on the culture at large" to be published later this year by WND Books.
After the Kinsey Institute criticized Reisman's 1990 Kinsey-bashing book -- described by one scholarly reviewer as "an inflated political pamphlet" filled with "innuendo, distortion, and selective representation of decontextualized 'facts'" -- Reisman sued the Kinsey Institute, claiming that it was trying to suppress publicity about her book.

Kinsey is a complex character - perhaps the only way he could get away with his study in the environment of mid-century America was that he was the quintessential academic, in dress, demeanor, and attitude.
Kinsey's work derived from interviews with literally thousands of subjects, data from whom was collected and compiled, and finally distilled into a major report, 'Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male', published in 1948.
Kinsey's follow-up volume on human sexuality in females was seen as an attack on family values and 'the American way', and Kinsey's faith in his own processes and work was tested as his health began to falter at the same time.

Within the scientific community, Kinsey was criticized on the grounds that his methodology represented flawed science; he hadn't used appropriate sampling techniques, and therefore his description of the American population's sexual practices could not be considered accurate.
Kinsey (and other sex researchers) subsequently met obstacles in securing funding for further scientific research on sexuality because of these reactions to his work.
However, his contributions to scientific knowledge about sexual practices are significant, and his program of research continues at the Kinsey Institute for Sexual Research at the University of Indiana in Bloomington.
