The publication of this book coincides with the cresting of the latest wave of public debate about Alfred Kinsey and the celebrated Kinsey Reports that has washed over America since the late 1940s. A feature film, two recent biographies, and a public controversy about Kinsey’s methods and personal sexuality have once again brought attention to the unusual scientist whose original and exhaustive surveys of male and female sexuality made him a celebrity in postwar America.
