When published in 1948, this volume encountered a storm of both condemnation and acclaim. Dr. Kinsey and his fellow researchers employed interviews to accumulate a body of empirical data regarding sex. Based on the personal histories of approximately 5,300 males, this volume describes the methodology, sampling, coding, interviewing, and statistical analyses used, and then examines sexual outlet and the factors and sources involved. "The Kinsey Report," as this book was popularly designated fifty years ago, represents a milestone on the path toward a scientific understanding of human sexual behavior.
