Sex research as a science pretty much started with the pioneering works of Kinsey and his contemporaries, right? Well, not quite. Dr. Clelia Mosher was surveying married women about their feelings towards sex as early as the 1890s. Not all Victorian women were prudes, it turns out, since many of them thought of sex as something that fueled their partnerships or was pleasurable in its own right. Unfortunately, Dr. Mosher’s findings remained buried in archives for decades. Read more about Dr. Mosher here, and join me in remembering her as one awesome researcher.
