Clelia Mosher: Sex Pioneer

Before there was Alfred Kinsey, there was Clelia Mosher, a Stanford professor who interviewed women about their sex lives beginning in the late 1800s. Her interview data weren’t published in 1980 when they were discovered by a scholar who was surprised at this early look at female sexuality. This made news again recently (maybe a month ago?) though it came to my attention this week when I was working on a paper and cited her work.
