Kinsey Institute

The Kinsey Institute is a research center at Indiana University which focuses on gender, reproduction, and sexuality. Its mission is “to advance sexual health and knowledge worldwide”. It proves information services, carries out studies, offers graduate training, and preserves related materials. The institute’s origin is attributed to Alfred Kinsey, a zoologist, professor, and sexuality researcher. Kinsey wrote books popularly known as the “Kinsey Reports”: Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female. One of his findings from around 6000 women and 5,300 men showed that females are generally less sexually active as compared to men.
