Sexual Behavior in the Human Male
When published in 1948 this volume encountered a storm of condemnation and acclaim. It is, however, a milestone on the path toward a scientific approach to the understanding of human sexual behavior. Dr. Kinsey and his fellow researchers sought to accumulate an objective body of facts regarding sex. They employed first-hand interviews to gather this data. This volume is based upon histories of approximately 5,300 males, which were collected over a 15-year period. This text describes the methodology, sampling, coding, interviewing and statistical analyses, and then examines factors and sources of sexual outlet.
