Hite has lectured at universities around the world including the Sorbonne, Harvard, Columbia, Cambridge, Oxford, the London School of Economics, and others. Hite also writes regularly for international newspapers and journals. Director of the National Organization for Women’s feminist sexuality project from 1972 to 1978, since that time she has directed Hite Research International. Her continuing study of sexual behavior includes major new discoveries on, for example, male sexuality, teen sexuality, and the relationship of sexuality to globalization. The Hite Report, first published in 1976, has sold tens of millions of copies worldwide. 

Review:

"A frankness and directness not usually seen in print... Many female readers can closely identify with these intimate revelations."

"The first major literary breakthrough in this field since the work of Masters and Johnson."

"Read The Hite Report if you want to know how sex really is right now."

The Hite Report, originally published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. Three thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were surveyed on their most intimate feelings about sex: what they do and don't like; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and, the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives. The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one, and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire. The Hite Report, which has been published in seventeen languages, was selected in 1998 as one of the one hundred key books of the twentieth century by the London Times and the World Expo.
