Encyclopedia > Kinsey Institute

The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, often shortened to Kinsey Institute, exists "to promote interdisciplinary research and scholarship in the fields of human sexuality, gender, and reproduction".


The Institute was founded as the Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University at Bloomington in 1947 by Alfred Kinsey, then an entomologist and zoologist at Indiana University. Its original goals were the study of human sexuality and human sexual behavior.


In 1948 and 1953 the Institute published two monographs on human sexuality, generally now known as the Kinsey Reports. Ever since, the Institute, the reports and Kinsey himself have been the subject of controversy.


Among its functions is to preserve the supporting materials of the Kinsey Reports and subsequent publications, making them available for new research while preserving confidentiality.

Alfred Kinsey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2000 words)
Kinsey's research on human sexuality profoundly influenced social and cultural values in the United States and many other countries worldwide during the 1960s with the advent of the sexual revolution.
Alfred Kinsey was born on June 23, 1894, in Hoboken, New Jersey, to Alfred Seguine Kinsey and Sarah Ann Charles.
Kinsey maintained that people do not clearly fall into the categories of exclusive heterosexuality or exclusive homosexuality, but that most can be placed somewhere between, in a continuum of sexual orientations with homo- and heterosexuality at the extremes and bisexuality at the midpoint.
