Variant title Title on container and cassette label: Alfred Kinsey : Social Science in America's Bedroom.
Portion of title Social science in America's bedroom.
Abstract Sexuality was the last uncharted realm of social science until a controversial biology professor named Alfred Kinsey walked into America's bedroom and turned on the light. In this program, John Bancroft, director of The Kinsey Institute; James H. Jones, author of Alfred Kinsey : A Public/Private Life; and Kinsey's former colleague Paul Gebhard engage in a thoughtful assessment of Kensey's findings--data weakened, however, by the makeup of Kinsey's sample population, his own sexual experiences, and his desire to see a more inclusive ethic of tolerance in the U.S. Nonetheless, as a tool of social reform, Kinsey's work succeeded in opening a channel in the public discourse on a hitherto taboo subject.(from container)
