Originally published in 1953, the material presented in Sexual Behavior in the Human Female was derived from personal interviews with nearly 6,000 women; from studies in sexual anatomy, physiology, psychology, and endocrinology. The study revealed the incidence and frequency with which women participate in various types of sexual activity and how such factors as age, decade of birth, and religious adherence are reflected in patterns of sexual behavior. The authors make comparisons of female and male sexual activities and investigate the factors which account for the similarities and differences between female and male patterns of behavior and provide some measure of the social significance of the various types of sexual behavior.

Das Erscheinen des Kinsey-Reports im Jahr 1948 ist für Erich Fromm nur der Anlass, um sein Verständnis der Bedeutung der Sexualität zu präzisieren. Sigmund Freud sieht das Beziehungsgeschehen von der Sexualität geprägt, so dass die Art und Qualität der Sexualität immer auch über das Wohl und Wehe einer Beziehung mitentscheidet. Für Erich Fromm sind die den Charakter prägenden und in der Gesellschaft vorgegebenen Beziehungsmuster für das Partnergeschehen entscheidend. Die Charakterstrebungen wirken sich dann auch auf das Erleben der Sexualität aus und auf die Frage, welche Rolle die Sexualität im Partnererleben spielt. Die Frage, welche Rolle die Sexualität für das Gelingen von Partnerschaft spielt, ist allgegenwärtig. Der Beitrag macht deutlich, dass in der Regel das Beziehungsmuster das Problem ist.

"The relationship of sexuality and humor is a recurrent theme in the collections at The Kinsey Institute.... The holdings contain vast numbers of silly greeting cards, naughty objects, cartoons, jokes, and toys. It is clear that much of the collection is humorous in some way, and that these pieces are likely to be some of the most memorable and engaging." --from the Foreword by Betsy Stirratt Four important scholarly essays dealing with various aspects of humor and sexuality make up the first part of this book: "Sex and Humor: A Personal View," by John Bancroft; "Humor in the Eight-Pagers," by Frank A. Hoffmann; "The Capacity for Outrage: Feminism, Humor, and Sex," by Leonore Tiefer; and "Gershon Legman, Lord of the Lewd," by Mikita Brottman. As an added attraction, Carol Tavris and Leonore Tiefer have contributed their exclusive "interview" with "Dr. Frieda Tingle, the world's leading expert on sex." Then, to accompany the exhibition "Sex and Humor: Selections from The Kinsey Institute," to be presented at the Indiana University School of Fine Arts Gallery from February 8 through March 9, 2002, the book showcases 42 full-page images from the exhibition, accompanied by short descriptive captions describing the origin, history, cultural context, and purpose of the pieces. An overview of the renowned Kinsey collections by curator Catherine Johnson is provided, and there is a checklist of the more than 165 photos, drawings, prints, novelty items, and other objects in the exhibition. Sex and Humor will serve as a catalyst for further discussion about the nature of humor and its relationship to human sexual behavior and expression.

Marginal Tabulations of the 1938-1963 Interviews Conducted by the Institute for Sex Research

This volume, originally published in 1979, is the culmination of the Kinsey Institute's desire to compile and publish the data from the original Institute case histories taken from 1938 to 1963. The complete sample has been "cleaned" by separating out those from 'sexually biased" groups (e.g., the delinquent sample) leaving a basic sample of 5,637 males and 5,609 females. The marginal tabulations are presented along with descriptions of the interviewing and sampling process. As the editors explain, their rationale for publication was to present the sorts of data the Institute had available so that other scientists could request it for use in their research, hopefully leading to further analyses and new approaches and ideas.

The participants included representatives from most of the recent large scale surveys in the United States and Europe, and others with a wide range of research experience and methodological expertise. These are the papers from that conference.

The first three novels in Sue Grafton's bestselling Kinsey Millhone private investigator crime series: A is for Alibi, B is for Burglar and C is for Corpse. A is for Alibi: When Laurence Fife was murdered, few cared. A slick divorce attorney with a reputation for ruthlessness, Fife was also rumoured to be a slippery ladies’ man. Plenty of people in the picturesque Southern California town of Santa Teresa had reason to want him dead. Including, thought the cops, his young and beautiful wife, Nikki. With motive, access and opportunity, Nikki was their number one suspect. The Jury thought so too. Eight years later and out on parole, Nikki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killed her husband. But the trail has gone cold and there is a chilling twist even Kinsey didn’t expect . . . ‘Will keep you awake until the last page has been turned’ Daily Mail B is for Burglar: There was nothing about Beverly Danziger to cause Kinsey concern. She was looking for her sister. There was a will to be settled. She paid up front. And if it seemed a lot of money for a routine job, Kinsey wasn’t going to argue.She kicked herself later for the things she didn’t see - Beverly Danziger did not look as if she needed a few thousand dollars and she didn’t seem like someone longing for a family reunion. But just as Kinsey begins to suspect foul play and start asking questions, Beverly Danziger pulls her off the case and fires her . . . ‘One of the best written crime novels by anybody in recent memory’ New York Times C is for Corpse: Kinsey met Bobby Callahan in the gym on Monday morning. His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon 400 feet below, his Porsche a ruin, his best friend dead, and his memory severely impaired. He was convinced someone was trying to kill him. By Thursday, he was dead. But Kinsey wasn’t going back on a deal. She had been hired to prevent a murder. Now she was looking for the murderer . . . ‘C is for classy, multiplex plotting, strong characterization and a tough cookie heroine’ Time Out
