Kinsey, Alfred Charles (1894�1956), a United States zoologist. Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953) were the result of many years of research by Kinsey and his associates. These books, popularly called the �Kinsey Reports,� indicated that actual practices often violated the law or conventional social attitudes. Some scholars found fault with Kinsey's sampling methods, and therefore were skeptical of his findings. The Institute for Sex Research founded by Kinsey at Bloomington, Indiana, continued his work and issued other books based on his and on later findings.
