If Alfred Kinsey hadn't published "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" in 1948, there's a very good chance you wouldn't be reading Fleshbot today, and we might've still been turning tricks flipping burgers instead of getting paid squillions to write about porn for a living: "Though some hail him for liberating the nation from sexual puritanism, others revile him as a fraud whose 'junk science' legitimized degeneracy." Which side of opinion do you think we're on?
