Celebrating 66 Years of Women's Sex Research This Week

Sixty-six years ago this week (August 20, 1953), the media first reported on some of the major findings from Alfred Kinsey's classic book Sexual Behavior in the Human Female. As many of you probably know, this was the first book of its kind to truly explore women's sexual attitudes and behaviors from a scientific point of view.

Sixty years ago today (August 20, 1953), the media first reported on the findings of Alfred Kinsey's classic book Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.  It was the first book of its kind to explore women's sexual attitudes and behaviors from a scientific perspective. Although this book shocked the world at the time and many people considered it to be obscene, we look back on it now as one of the most important publications ever on human sexuality because it debunked numerous myths and revealed that women are much more sexual than previously assumed.
