Watch the following movie - Kinsey Discuss what you know about Kinsey prior to watching the movie. What did you learn about Kinsey and his research from the movie? Previous to the movie I knew nothing of him. I learned that Kinsey opened people’s minds about sex and tried to eliminate the judgment that sex and masturbation was condemning or evil. He was very committed to his research during its successes and hardships. He however did struggle to separate or balance his research from his personal life. Discuss some the sexual myths believed during this time in society, give examples from the movie. Some of the sexual myths during this time in society was that syphilis was a disease only cured by abstinence. During the movie Kinsey shut down the hygiene professor by saying he was incorrect that penicillin can remedy syphilis. During the early part of the movie Kinsey’s peers though that masturbation can cause blindness or early death, which we know is shenanigans.
