  Kinsey Reports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kinsey Reports are two controversial books on human sexual behavior, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953), by Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey, Wardell Pomeroy and others.
Kinsey was a zoologist at the Indiana University at Bloomington and the founder of the Institute for Sex Research.
Kinsey reported that most American males fell in the 1 to 2 range of the scale and that a large majority appeared to be at least somewhat bisexual (in the 1 to 5 range).

Also planned were volumes on: sexual behavior in the human female; sexual factors in marital adjustment; legal aspects of sex behavior; the heterosexual-homosexual balance; sexual adjustment in institutional populations; prostitution; sex education; and other special problems as discovered and identified.
In the Male and Female volumes, statistical calculations and adjustments were made to try to cover the variations between the non-statistical randomness of the sample that they got and the statistical norms of the 1940 census for the Male volume and the 1950 census for the Female volume.
Freedom of scientific inquiry and the free exchange of information in the area of human sexuality are not unrelated to a profound faith in the right of all people to see, to hear, and to read material that may be essential to their growth, happiness and fulfillment as human beings.

 Kinsey Report on male sex behavior, Ch. 21 Homosexual Outlet
In the total male population, single and married, between adolescence and old age, 24 per cent of the total outlet is derived from solitary sources (masturbation and nocturnal emissions), 69.4 per cent is derived from heterosexual sources (petting and coitus), and 6.3 per cent of the total number of orgasms is derived from homosexual contacts.
Until the extent of any type of human behavior is adequately known, it is difficult to assess its significance, either to the individuals who are involved or to society as a whole; and until the extent of the homosexual is known, it is practically impossible to understand its biologic or social origins.
The assumption by a male animal of a female position in a sexual relation, or the assumption by a female of a position which is more typical of the male in a heterosexual relation, is what the students of animal behavior have referred to as homosexuality.

 Books, Arts & Manners October 13, 1997
Kinsey blamed his sexual peculiarities on his religious upbringing — his father was an old-school Methodist — and once he obtained his doctorate in science from Harvard in 1919, he burned ever after with the hard, gem-like flame of a convert to atheism zealously determined to reform society along rational lines.
But from the outset of his research, he sought out as many male homosexual interviewees as possible, both because little was then known about homosexuality, and in order to discreetly engage in anonymous sexual relations with men in the large cities to which he traveled in search of data.
Sexual Behavior in the Human Male contains a chapter on ``early sexual growth and activity'' in which the orgasms of children are described in detail.

That the reported sexual practices of American men differed from moral expectations was (in Kinsey's interpretation) evidence of the power of sexuality and not a mark of moral decay.
The sexuality of the human male was characterized by novelty in practices, variety in partners, a quick and urgent response to sexual stimuli, and a search for orgasm as the primary source of sexual pleasure.
Sexual Behavior in the Human Female, based on approximately 6000 interviews, is a retreat, at least in part, from all of these assumptions.

As they debated what behaviors were normal or average, abnormal or deviant, Cold War Americans also celebrated and scrutinized the state of their nation, relating apparent changes in sexuality to shifts in its political structure, economy, and people.
Focusing on the mutual construction of postwar ideas about national identity and sexual life, this wide-ranging, shrewd, and lively analysis explores the many uses to which these sex surveys were put at a time of extreme anxiety about sexual behavior and its effects on the nation.

Kinsey's dad is not too pleased with the idea of his son doing a sex survey, but a heartwarming and truthful session between father and son reveals that his father had a genital defect which infallingly led to his prudish approach to sex in his later years.
Kinsey then produces a book "Sexual Behavior of the adult Male", which is a big hit and he becomes popular.
What he fails to realise, however, is how the project (that is all what it means to him) has taken such a toll and has severe backlashes upon him and his family, as well as those of his interviewers and their families.

The movement of fraudulent view of human sexuality was based upon laboratory and survey ''research'' derived via illegal activity under the direction of, and perhaps conducted by, Kinsey, the father of the sexual revolution.
As a media star, Kinsey's sexual statistics and scientific authority began to mechanize human sexual expression, detracting from and eventually supplanting, as Kinsey said, the sanctity given to it by the Common Law, ''religious and moral'' authority and absolutes.
Kinsey concluded all human sexual expressions were normal and equal in value, and that line of thinking led him to the conclusion that no sex conduct was abnormal.

Alfred Kinsey finally started writing Sexual Behavior in the Human Male in the summer of 1945, almost seven years after taking his first sexual histories from students in the marriage course he taught at Indiana University.
Among other statistics, Kinsey reported that more than 90% of American males masturbated, 85% had had premarital intercourse, 70% had patronized a prostitute at least once in their lives, almost 60% had had oral sex, and 30% to 45% had had extramarital intercourse.
But most shocking was the revelation that some 37% of American males had had at least one homosexual encounter in their lives.

Writer/director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters) explores the life of the pioneer of human sexuality research, Alfred Kinsey (Liam Neeson), whose landmark studies on sexual behavior rocked a nation.
Kinsey and his team of researchers criss-crossed the country collecting data on the sexual activities of what he liked to call “the human animal.” Then they shared that information in a ground-breaking study, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, which was first published in 1948.The world would never be the same.
Kinsey would ease in with innocuous questions—age, religion, education, and occupation—before moving on to early sexual experiences—masturbation, dreams, etc. As subjects began to relax, he would shift to one of the most revealing aspects of a person’s sexuality—erotic arousal.

 washingtonpost.com: 'Kinsey': Portrait of A Sexual Revolutionary
It's an alert, lively movie with a crackling performance by Liam Neeson as Alfred Kinsey -- the sexual behavior scientist whose "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" and "Sexual Behavior in the Human Female" ignited a firestorm of controversy in the postwar years.
Even today, Kinsey's findings attract heated excoriation from conservative groups who see a direct connection between the researcher's findings and a number of perceived social outrages, including government-funded sexual education, encouragement of masturbation, and premarital sexual experimentation, free-and-easy condom dispensation and society's increasing acceptance of homosexuality.
In a world where masturbation and homosexuality are considered the road straight to damnation, where some believe oral sex can lead to pregnancy and where even "normal" sexual relations between husband and wife are fraught with doubt, inexperience and lack of creativity, Kinsey finds his true calling.

One of Kinsey's best-known concepts was the sexuality scale, on which 0 is completely heterosexual and 6 is completely homosexual.

Kinsey was interested in behaviors, not so much in identities--which would have been more in the realm of the psychologists.
In fact, what makes Kinsey's work so interesting--one aspect among many--is that he concludes that actual sexual behavior in many people is askew from their identity.
Behaviors are quantifiable where identities are not--except perhaps for the multiples.
