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.
