American sexologist and zoologist noted for his 1948 study, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, popularly known as "The Kinsey Report." Kinsey's survey, which was based upon thousands of interviews, revealed a greater variety of sexual behavior than had previously been suspected, and generated much controversy among both the scientific community and the general public.
