Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences

Judith A. Reisman, Ph.D.

The following article is a fairly long section from Judith Reisman's research report, "Crafting Bi/Homosexual Youth", in which she studies various aspects of sexualisation in the lives of young people. In particular, she looks at the problems of pederasty and pedophilia. The original report from which the following section has been taken, can be found on Dr. Judith Reisman's website,

In 1989 the prestigious National Research Council proclaimed that sex science "can be divided somewhat crudely into the pre-Kinsey and post-Kinsey eras."154 At the time of this writing, 20th Century Fox announced plans for a major film on Kinsey's life, with Tom Hanks or Harrison Ford glamorizing the Indiana sex revolutionary.155
On April 23, 2000, The New York Times Book Review celebrated the fact that Indiana University had given America "the man whose studies started the sex revolution."156 And, on April 17, 2000, Salon's Scott McLemee wrote:

"Kinsey's effect on society was profound and enduring. It did not rise and fall with his bestseller status... [but became] the manifestoes of sexual revolution and the counterculture...
The history of sex in America falls into two large, unequal, yet clearly defined periods. The Þ rst era belonged to the Puritans, the Victorians... This epoch of libidinal prohibition lasted until Jan. 4, 1948. The following day, Professor Alfred C. Kinsey of Indiana published "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male." Whereupon, as the expression has it, the earth moved."157

Since 1948, Kinsey has continually fashioned the American libido. As The North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), the world's largest pederast organization, says any who would understand the modern theater of "sexual orientation" must "know Kinsey's work" for implicit in it is the struggle for pedophile control of America's children. "Gay liberationists in general, and boy-lovers in particular, should know Kinsey's work and hold it dear."158 "[I]mplicit in Kinsey is the struggle we fight today."159

Why is Kinsey’s role as the father of sex “science” important to any debate about homosexuality and sex education in the schools? The mandate to teach bi/homosexual and heterosexual experimentation as legitimate for children and youth originated with Kinsey’s data, which formulated a revolutionary belief in child and juvenile sexual need and entitlement. Many Americans born post World War II may not recall the Kinsey team and their reports, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male160 (hereinafter Male) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.161 A vast and meticulously orchestrated media-relations campaign made Kinsey a household name and heralded him as a folk hero in over seventy percent of the nation’s press.162

Life, Look, Time and every other major mainstream magazine promoted his bold sex “findings” as heroic scientific truth.163 Indiana University had set the stage by posing zoologist Kinsey as a conservative Republican academic, a family man, who serendipitously stumbled onto sex research only to discover that while Americans pretended to be virtuous, virginal, monogamous, and faithfully heterosexual, they were really hypocritical and promiscuous.164 Kinsey claimed ninety-five percent of men were really sex offenders and from ten percent to thirty-seven percent were occasional homosexual adventurers.165 Camille Paglia wrote insightfully about Kinsey’s fraudulent ten percent finding and its service to the homosexual movement:

“The ten percent figure, servilely repeated by the media, was pure propaganda, and it made me, as a scholar, despise gay activists for their unscrupulous disregard for the truth. [Homosexuals were too well aware that one in ten of the men that they met were not ‘gay’.] Their fibs and fabrications continue, now about the still-fragmentary evidence for a genetic link to homosexuality and for homosexual behavior among animals.”166

As Pagilia suggests, Kinsey was long ago exposed as a scientific fraud. Both of Kinsey’s most recent admiring biographers confessed he was a sadistic bi/homosexual who seduced his male students and coerced his wife, his staff, and the staff’s wives to perform for and with him in illegal pornographic films made in the family attic.167 Kinsey and his mates, Wardell Pomeroy, Clyde Martin, and Paul Gebhard, had “front” marriages, which concealed their strategies to supplant what they saw as a narrow procreational Judeo Christian era with a promiscuous “anything goes” bi/gay pedophile paradise.168 We now know Kinsey, for example, “was deeply influenced by five pedophile headmasters who were quite clear they had very warm relationships with young adolescent boys of twelve or thirteen” in one New England area.169 An early adherent and advocate of masturbation, Kinsey suffered an untimely death due, at least in part, to “orchitis,” a lethal infection in his testicles that followed years of sadistic, orgiastic “self-abuse.”170 Kinsey’s obsessive, brutally masochistic masturbation methods appear to have assisted in his early demise.

Kinsey solicited and encouraged pedophiles, at home and abroad, to sexually violate from 317 to 2,035 infants and children for his alleged data on normal “child sexuality.”171 Many of the crimes against children (oral and anal sodomy, genital intercourse and manual abuse) committed for Kinsey’s research are quantified in his own graphs and charts.172 For example, “Table 34” on page 181 of Kinsey’s Male volume, claims to be a “scientific” record of “multiple orgasm in pre-adolescent males.”173 Here, infants as young as five months were timed with a stop watch for “orgasm” by Kinsey’s “technically trained” aides, with one four-year-old tested twenty-four consecutive hours for an alleged twenty-six orgasms.174 Sex educators, pedophiles, and their advocates commonly quote these child “data” to prove children’s need for homosexual, heterosexual, and bisexual satisfaction via “safe-sex” education.175 These data are also regularly used to “prove” children are sexual from birth.

Kinsey’s closet team 1) „forced“ subjects to give the desired answers to their sex questions,176 2) secretly trashed three quarters of their research data,177 and 3) based their claims about normal males on a roughly eighty-six percent aberrant male population including 200 sexual psychopaths, 1,400 sex offenders and hundreds each of prisoners, male prostitutes, and promiscuous homosexuals.178 Moreover, so few normal women would talk to them that the Kinsey team labeled women who lived over a year with a man “married,” reclassifying data on prostitutes and other unconventional women as “Susie Homemaker.”179

How could a dry, scientific tome be hyped globally to bestseller status and draw no questions from skeptical reporters or scientists as to where children for human sexual experiments were obtained when the nation was still reeling from Nuremberg? In his Male volume, Kinsey defined children’s torment („screaming,“ „writhing in pain,“ „fainting,“ „convulsions,“ etc.)180 as “orgasms” for infants too young to speak. Who sexually tested these children? Where were the parents? Among thousands of international reviews of the Kinsey Reports, no one asked these questions of the man who, as Gore Vidal declared, was “the most famous man for a decade,”181 and who, more specifically for this writing, is the man the homosexual and pedophile movement thank for their advance.182

Dr. E. Michael Jones, in his book Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control,183 discusses the effort to suppress this author’s early findings on the Kinsey fraud and on child pornography - an effort that directly resembles the current media spin controls and suppression of critical findings on homosexuality:

“On July 23, 1981, Reisman delivered a paper entitled ‘The Scientist as a Contributing Agent to Child Sexual Abuse: A Preliminary Study,’ in which she brought up for the first time in the thirty-two years since it had been pub­lished, the material on child sexuality in Tables 30-34 of the Kinsey Male volume and wondered how this data could have been obtained without in­volvement in criminal activity. Before giving her report, Reisman had writ­ten to Male volume co-author Paul Gebhard to ask about the data in Tables 30-34. Gebhard wrote back saying that the data had been obtained from par­ents, school teachers, and some male homosexuals, including ‘some of Kinsey‘s men’ who had used ‘manual and oral techniques’ to catalogue the number of orgasms they said they could stimulate in infants and children. Virtually the entire sex industry-sex research establishment worldwide was in attendance at the meeting in Jerusalem, but the reaction to the talk was si­lence, stunned or sullen or otherwise, until a Swedish reporter wondered out loud why the assembled experts had nothing to say.

The silence was understandable. Just about everyone in attendance had cited Kinsey as their mentor, and some even knew about the criminal activity involved in Kinsey‘s research. They all knew that Kinsey‘s research was the basis of their ‘science’, which is to say, the legitimizing basis for everything they did. Kinsey was the foundation of that house of cards. If what he had done could be discredited, it threatened the sexual empire which had been built since his death and upon which they all depended for a livelihood. Later when word got out that Reisman had government money to pursue her thesis and show a link between Kinsey‘s exploitation of child ‘sexuality’ and Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler‘s exploitation of the same thing, stunned silence turned to determined, if behind the scenes, action.”184

Notre Dame Law Professor Charles E. Rice later commented that this author’s study “supports the conclusion that Alfred Kinsey’s research was contrived, ideologically driven and misleading. Any judge, legislator or other public official who gives credence to that research is guilty of malpractice and dereliction of duty.”185

Yet in the nearly twenty years (1982-2000) since Kinsey was exposed as a fraud, WestlawTM journal articles cite Kinsey positively roughly 650 times - from hate crimes and homosexual marriage to child custody and rape. The Social Science and Science Citation Indices reference Kinsey roughly 6,000 times over this same period. On the evidence, Kinsey is far and away the most influential sex scientist in the law.186 Fully 100% of the sex science citations in the original 1955 American Law Institute’s “Model Penal Code” cite Kinsey’s bogus data on “normal sexuality” - alive today in courts and legislatures.187

Pioneering the current Kirk and Madsen model, Kinsey’s critics were largely silenced and/or slandered by Kinsey and the establishment media (which celebrated his discoveries on the cover of seventy percent of American newspapers)188 and “jammed” critics as sexually repressed, ignorantly religious, mean spirited, unscientific, and backward versus Kinsey (using many photographs) as a normal, middle-American husband and father and a scholarly seeker of truth. Continued media applause desensitized the public. Kinsey was praised as the prophet of the sexual revolution.

In her latest book on the subject,189 this author argues that America’s growing libidinous pathologies - taught as “safe” and “safer” sex in primary, secondary, and graduate schools and reflected in our fine and popular arts, the press, law, and public policy - largely mirror the documented190 sexual psychopathologies of the Kinsey Institute team itself.191

This “free sex” movement coarsened the populace by demoting sex from its rarified, idealistic, marital pedestal and private expression into ye old pagan rituals of public display, discourse and performance. One of the end results of Kinsey’s “grand scheme” would be the revival of the traffic in both adult and child heterosexual and homosexual prostitution and pornography.
