The 'Kinsey - Let's talk about sex' con job

By Bill Muehlenberg - posted Thursday, 20 January 2005

Hollywood is at it again: seeking to defend the indefensible. The release of Kinsey: Let's Talk About Sex, is another indication of just how out of touch Hollywood is from mainstream culture. It also demonstrates how willing it is to use its power and influence to promote radical and deviant agendas.

The film, starring Liam Neeson, and directed by a homosexual activist, is basically a fluff job on Alfred Kinsey in particular and the sexual revolution in general. It seeks to sanitise a man and a revolution that have caused an enormous amount of damage.

Kinsey of course is the notorious American sexologist (1894-1956), whose agenda was to soften up the public to the view that any and every sort of sexuality is permissible. He sought to convince us that there is no norm when it comes to human sexuality, and that we should embrace any sexual expression whatsoever.


Here are some of his “findings”:

  • All orgasms are “outlets” and are equally valid - whether between husband and wife, boy and dog, man and man or adult and child - for in sexual expression, normal is individually determined.
  • The more “outlets,” the healthier the person - and beginning as early as possible is better than waiting.
  • Human beings are naturally bisexual. Religious bigotry and prejudice force people into chastity, heterosexuality and monogamy.
  • There is no medical or other reason for adult-child sex or incest to be forbidden.

People like Hugh Hefner of Playboy fame of course helped to carry out this agenda. And today we see the result of this social and sexual revolution: broken families; marriage disintegration; a tsunami of pornography, including child pornography; an epidemic of promiscuity and sexually transmitted diseases; skyrocketing abortion rates; a crisis in teenage pregnancies; an explosion of rape and sexual assault; and a culture that believes that hedonism is the highest good, and self control and restraint the greatest evil.

The 60's sexual revolution was the bitter fruit of the agenda being promoted by Kinsey. But the film, instead of questioning his research and giving it a critical examination, sugar coats the whole story, seeking to turn this committed atheist and social revolutionary into a saint.

Most people do not know that Kinsey collected data from imprisoned sex offenders, criminals, pedophiles and prostitutes. He took this obviously skewed data and tried to make the result appear to be normal and mainstream. But perversion masquerading as science is still perversion.

Many of the lies of the sexual revolution are based on Kinsey's flawed conclusions, such as that children are sexual from birth, that sexual promiscuity is the norm, and that 10 per cent of the population is homosexual.


Not only were the fruits of his research dangerous, but so was the research itself. We know that Kinsey and his associates used children ranging from 5 months to 14 years in his sex experiments. For example, in Table 34 of his Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, Kinsey sought to show that the youngest of children could be sexually active. He said that even “the youngest males, as young as 5 months in age, are capable of such repeated reactions [orgasms]”.

In the table, 4-year-old boys, for example, were sexually stimulated for 24 uninterrupted hours. A five-month baby is said to have produced three orgasms in an unspecified amount of time. An 11-month baby is reported to have had 14 orgasms in 38 minutes.

The book also examines some of the reactions to such “experimentation”. These ranged from “extreme tension with violent convulsion ... gasping, eyes staring ... mouth distorted, sometimes with tongue protruding ... whole body or parts of it spasmodically twitching ... groaning, sobbing, or more violent cries ... more or less frenzied movements ... extreme trembling, collapse, loss of color, and sometimes fainting ... of subject”. These reactions, recorded with cold, clinical precision, are nothing less than descriptions of criminal child abuse.
