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 Kinsey Data

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 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 . . . 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 . . . 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 . . .

Alfred Kinsey, world famous American sexologist whose life is portrayed in the 2005 movie Kinsey had it. Stanley Kubrick, one of the most important and influential filmmakers of the last century and director of cinematic masterpieces such as Clockwork Orange, Lolita, and 2001 - Space Odyssey, fits the diagnosis. Undoubtedly, Patricia Highsmith, renowned writer of crime fiction, particularly the Ripley novels suffered from it. Likewise, Charles Darwin, one of the most influential and revolutionary scientist of all times as well as Bertrand Russell, foremost philosopher and mathematician of the 20th century meet diagnostic criteria for Asperger syndrome. Other less well known personalities such as the Swiss writer Robert Walser, Joy Adamson famous for her work with animals in Africa, the controversial British politician Enoch Powell, the gifted mathematician Kurt Godel and the American child prodigy William James Sidis are also linked to the condition. Asperger syndrome is a neuropsychiatric condition, a lifelong and pervasive developmental disorder, which sometimes is associated with high intelligence and creativity. very little emphasis on special strengths or talents. Some individuals with Asperger Syndrome are extremely successful in their area of expertise and lead fulfilling lives despite or because of their condition while others are considered failures and life for them is an endless struggle on the margins of society. For some, Asperger syndrome appears to be a gift, for others a curse. In order to address this issue, the authors analyse the life histories of ten historical and contemporary figures from the world of literature, film, politics, science, philosophy and mathematics who had Asperger syndrome, against the backdrop of neuropsychological theories of autism/Asperger syndrome, latest neurobiological research data and current interpretation of special gifts and assets. They also advance a new hypothesis of Asperger syndrome as a disorder of the social self based on right hemisphere dysfunction, and demonstrate that the impact of the disorder on the development of the Self of each individual manifests itself in very distinct ways.

Wie der Sex nach Deutschland kam

Der Kampf um Sittlichkeit und Anstand in der frühen Bundesrepublik

Neues über die Pubertät der Republik Muffig und verklemmt erscheint die Adenauerzeit im Rückblick: als Epoche der Prüderie und Lustfeindlichkeit. Doch diese Einschätzung täuscht. Sybille Steinbacher zeigt, dass es Sexwellen gab, lange bevor die »sexuelle Revolution« begann. Sex, das Wort war neu, als es kurz nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg in Westdeutschland gebräuchlich wurde. Es stand im Zentrum erbitterter Auseinandersetzungen über Sittlichkeit und Anstand. Denn gerade mit dem neuen Erotikboom in der Publizistik sahen viele Zeitgenossen der Adenauerära eine moralische Krise heraufziehen, während andere davon überzeugt waren, Fortschritt und Modernität hielten nun aus Amerika Einzug. Wie vermint das ideologische Gelände war und wie heillos Sittlichkeitsverfechter bald ins Hintertreffen gerieten, offenbarte Anfang der fünfziger Jahre die Verbreitung der Kinsey-Reporte. Bald florierte zudem Beate Uhses Erotik-Firma, und im Sommer 1961 kam die Pille auf den Markt. Sybille Steinbacher erschließt ein bislang unbeachtetes Feld in der Politik- und Gesellschaftsgeschichte der frühen Bundesrepublik – und bricht Klischees auf: Sie zeigt, dass es in puncto Sexualität eine Revolution vor der Revolution gab. • Neue Erkenntnisse über die »sexuelle Revolution« in Deutschland • Überraschender Blick auf die Nachkriegszeit

In The Familiar Made Strange, twelve distinguished historians offer original and playful readings of American icons and artifacts that cut across rather than stop at the nation’s borders to model new interpretive approaches to studying United States history. These leading practitioners of the “transnational turn” pause to consider such famous icons as John Singleton Copley’s painting Watson and the Shark, Albert Eisenstaedt’s photograph V-J Day, 1945, Times Square, and Alfred Kinsey’s reports on sexual behavior, as well as more surprising but revealing artifacts like Josephine Baker’s banana skirt and William Howard Taft’s underpants. Together, they present a road map to the varying scales, angles and methods of transnational analysis that shed light on American politics, empire, gender, and the operation of power in everyday life.
