Fraudulent Kinsey Sex Research

With the backing and credibility of Indiana University and funding from the Rockefeller Institute, Kinsey conducted pseudo-scientific research on human sexuality, attempting to prove to the world that children are sexual from birth.

In the 1950s and 60s, in the name of “scientific research” for his institute, Kinsey personally interviewed thousands of people regarding their sex lives. He insisted on knowing every detail and documented the answers. He was especially proud of his “nonjudgmental” interviewing skills, which enabled his subjects to more freely disclose the most intimate details of their sex lives. Kinsey hired additional “sex researchers” and trained them in this same approach, sometimes even requiring them to engage in sex acts in his attic, often while being filmed, ostensibly in the name of science.

Today, students of sexology sometimes are required to participate in Sexual Attitude Restructuring Seminars (SARS), which largely mirror Kinsey’s original methods. The SARS include watching hours of pornography depicting a wide array of explicit sexual acts to help them “readjust” their sexual attitudes and become desensitized to even the most bizarre and potentially harmful sexual behaviors. In theory, this allows them to counsel others in a nonjudgmental way.

The Kinsey Institute’s claimed findings on human sexuality were initially published in Kinsey’s books, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (collectively known as “The Kinsey Reports”). The Reports have been used to promote pedophilia, incest, abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, adultery, the legalization of same-sex marriage and much more.

The most controversial work of the Kinsey Institute, however, is the research they have promoted since 1948 on child sexuality. In Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (which was reprinted in 1998 and is widely available), the Institute published the notorious Table 34, which documents the “sexual responses” of children from infants through teens as recorded by their adult male abusers. These pedophiles conducted sexual experiments on hundreds of children by bringing them to what the experimenters called “orgasm” (screaming, weeping, fighting the sexual “partner”) and timing these responses with a stopwatch.

John Bancroft, M.D., former director of the Kinsey Institute, in his paper, “Alfred Kinsey and the Politics of Sex Research” said that Alfred Kinsey was, “particularly interested in the observation of adults who had been sexually involved with children.” It was Kinsey’s obsession with the sexual responses of children that led to the publication of the infamous Table 34 in Chapter 5 of Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, which documents the sexual abuse of several hundred children.

Kinsey proudly asserted, “We have now reported observation on such specifically sexual activities as erection, pelvic thrusts, and several other characteristics of true orgasm in a list of 317 pre-adolescent boys ranging between infants of five months and adolescence in age.” Table 34 in Kinsey’s book includes these data: an 11-month-old baby experienced an alleged “orgasm” ten times in one hour; a four-year-old child and a 13-year-old boy experienced 26 such alleged “orgasms” in a 24-hour period.

The Kinsey Institute’s sex research has been largely dismissed by qualified researchers for failing to meet even minimal standards of accepted research design. For example, Kinsey and his team intentionally selected non-representative, sexually deviant research subjects, many of whom were convicted sex offenders that were interviewed in prisons. Kinsey then attempted to draw conclusions about the prevalence of these deviant behaviors in the entire U.S. population.

This was clearly done in an effort to normalize unhealthy, abnormal and extreme sexual behaviors. In fact, it was the Kinsey Institute’s flawed research that spread the widely accepted myth that 10 percent of the U.S. population was homosexual, which laid the foundation for the homosexual activist movement in the U.S. and now worldwide. (The actual number has since been found to be approximately two percent, although the Kinsey Institute still publicizes the 10 percent figure.)

The Kinsey Institute admits that many of their research findings on sexual norms were based on interviews with incarcerated criminals, prostitutes and pedophiles rather than normal, healthy members of society. Kinsey Institute researchers have since acknowledged the extremely serious problems with their sampling techniques.

Kinsey’s coauthors have also since admitted that their prison histories ignored scientific sampling techniques and focused on the most deviant sex offenders, including those who had practiced incest, rape, and pedophilia. In fact, former Kinsey Institute director, Paul Gebhard, said regarding their research, “At the Indiana State [Penal] Farm we had no plan of sampling—we simply sought out sex offenders and, after a time, avoided the more common types of offenses (e.g., statutory rape) and directed our efforts toward the rarer types.”

This flawed sampling technique made sexually deviant behaviors appear to occur far more often in the general population than they actually did, thus, greatly influencing public thinking about sexual norms and sex-related laws.

John Bancroft, a former director of Kinsey’s institute says, Kinsey “rebelled against what he regarded as the destructively repressive sexual mores of his time.” Kinsey believed that there were “only three kind(s) of sexual abnormalities: abstinence, celibacy, and delayed marriage,” ironically, all practices that promote legitimate sexual health. The Kinsey Institute promotes anal sex with condoms as “safe” despite scientific evidence to the contrary.

Kinsey’s fraudulent, misrepresentative, and misleading data based disproportionately on sexual and social deviants were used by courts and policymakers to make decisions and policies that have affected the lives of countless people.

To date, the Kinsey Institute has covered up the sexual abuse of children in the name of “science” and has refused to allow public examination of their original data or to reveal the sources from which they were derived.

Kinsey’s claim that children can and should be sexual from the earliest stages of life has become the basis for virtually all modern comprehensive sexuality education programs taught around the world.
