Kinsey reports

The first large-scale studies of human sexual behaviour. The reports, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) by Alfred C. Kinsey, Wardell B. Pomeroy and Clyde E. Martin, and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953) by the same authors and Paul H. Gebhard, had a profound effect on public and private attitudes to sex and helped to overcome repressive taboos about open discussion on the subject.

It's well known that Kinsey's extensive sample of sexual histories--still used as a benchmark for contemporary sex researchers--relied too heavily on subjects in prisons or mental hospitals, a fact he belatedly recognized and attempted to correct in Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.
For these zealous cultists, Kinsey's "sex science" tomes, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953), have become the new holy writ.
