Kinsey's name is sort of synonymous with the whole sexual revolution that started in the 50's and took the 60's by storm. But it's scary how much people didn't know in the 20's. No one had ever thought to find out about sex. Kinsey was a scientist. Not a particularly amoral man, he was merely curious about things. And when he and his wife had a little problem on their wedding night, he realised that there wasn't a general body of knowledge, a reference of facts that related to the human sexual experience. No one wanted to talk about it, no one recorded it, no one really knew what "normal" was because no one ever bothered to find out.
Kinsey found out. Oh, boy did he find out.
This film makes you realise how far we've come from the early 20th century...and how far we have yet to go.
