Back in the 1940s and 1950s, Dr Alfred Kinsey conducted controversial research of sexual behaviour in men and women via two studies – Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behaviour in the Human Female (1953).
His research resulted in the following findings:
Nearly 46% of the male population had engaged in both heterosexual and homosexual activities
Approximately 50% of all married males had some extramarital experience at some time during their married lives
Between 1 in 6 and 1 in 10 females from age 26 to 50 were engaged in extramarital sex
31% of females insisted they had never been aroused by thinking about males or sexual relations with them.
69% of white males had had at least one experience with a prostitute.
