Saunders Company, 1953. xxx, 842, [8 (blank)] pp. Many intratextual charts and figures throughout. 9-1/2" x 6-3/8" This landmark work on Human Sexuality, along with its counterpart Sexual Behavior in the Human Male was part of a finding known as the "Kinsey Reports". His findings were controversial and ground-breaking. As stated online, "Kinsey analyzed data for the frequency with which women participate in various types of sexual activity and looked at how factors such as age, social-economic status and religious adherence influence sexual behavior.... Kinsey's evidence suggested that women were less sexually active than men in all aspects of sexual life but that they were still more sexual than they were considered at that time... and that both men's and women's sexuality seemed shaped, not merely repressed, by social and cultural forces." 1st edition.
