Garrison-Morton 7037-38. Kinsey and his colleagues at the Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University based the first volume on histories of approximately 5,300 males, collected during a fifteen year period. The text describes the methodology, sampling, coding, interviewing, and statistical analyses. Sexual Behavior in the Human Female was based on personal interviews with approximately 6,000 women. The data were analyzed for the frequency with which women participate in various types of sexual activity, and Kinsey and his colleagues considered how such factors as age, social-economic status, and religious adherence influenced sexual behavior. The evidence suggested that women were less sexually active than men, but the publications were immediately controversial, causing shock and outrage, both because they challenged conventional beliefs about sexuality and because they discussed subjects considered taboo. The Kinsey Reports together sold three-quarters of a million copies and were translated into thirteen languages, making them among the most successful and influential scientific books of the 20th century.
