It sounds too horrible to be true – that America’s most famous sex researcher, widely considered the “father of the sexual revolution” – not only relied on serial pedophiles for “research data” on childhood sexuality, but actually protected and even encouraged those who committed such heinous crimes.
And yet, despite years of official denials from the Kinsey Institute that Alfred Kinsey encouraged pedophiles with stopwatches to molest children for the “data” thus obtained, Kinsey’s own colleagues tell the awful truth.
On its website, the Kinsey Institute currently claims, “Kinsey did not hire, collaborate, or persuade people to carry out experiments on children. …”
Past Kinsey researchers, however, including Paul Gebhard, who helped research the Kinsey Reports, have acknowledged on the record that indeed Kinsey worked with and covered for pedophiles.
Kinsey and his colleagues also refused to report to law enforcement the ongoing child molestation while compiling data for Kinsey’s 1948 and 1953 books on human sexual behavior, according to Gebhard.
“It was illegal and we knew it was illegal and that’s why a lot of people are furious,” said Gebhard in 1998. “They say we should have turned him in instantly … [but] if we had turned him in it would have been the end of our research project.”
Gebhard assumed leadership of the Kinsey Institute after Kinsey died in 1956.
Kinsey and his colleagues admit to protecting the identities of at least two pedophiles, an Arizona government employee and a Nazi, because the men were producing data on childhood sexual response that was valuable to their research on prepubescent orgasm.
“Kinsey was not a pedophile in any shape or form. He did not carry out experiments on children; he did not hire, collaborate, or persuade people to carry out experiments on children,” insists an early 1990s document cited on the Kinsey Institute website in a section titled, “Allegations about Childhood data in the 1948 book, ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Male.’”
“Kinsey never carried out experiments on the sexual responses of children or employed or trained anyone else to do so for him,” wrote former Institute director John Bancroft, M.D., in a 2005 article, “Alfred Kinsey’s work 50 years on,” currently available on the Kinsey Institute website.
Indeed, the Kinsey Institute has maintained for years that Kinsey did not recruit or train people to generate data on childhood sexual performance for his research.
However, on Monday WorldNetDaily published an interview with “Esther White,” a woman whose father was recruited, trained and paid by Kinsey to incestuously molest her, starting at age 7, to provide data for his books on human sexuality.
The Kinsey Reports contain extensive data about sexual behavior and response in hundreds of prepubescent and adolescent children. For example, the infamous Table 34 from Kinsey’s 1948 book “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” records the number of “orgasms” experienced in given periods of time by children aged 14 years down to infants and toddlers as young as only 5 months.

If Kinsey did not conduct sexual “research” on children himself, and did not hire and train anybody else to do it for him, then where did his data on the sexual performance of children come from? Bancroft told the Indianapolis Star that all of the data on childhood sex was provided by a single pedophile.
“I have looked at the data on which these tables appear to be based, and I am fairly confident that the data for all 317 cases (of children having orgasms) appears to be based on the observations of one man,” Bancroft told the Indianapolis paper in 1995.
Several people involved in the Kinsey research, however, have acknowledged that Kinsey worked with many people to generate information about boyhood sexual activity, including pedophiles.
“The information we got on childhood sexuality came from the observations of nursery school people, parents and pedophiles,” Kinsey’s co-author Paul Gebhard told the Bloomington, Indiana Herald-Times in 1995.
“Kinsey had contact with all [the pedophiles] that he could find,” according to Clarence Tripp, Kinsey’s photographer, in an interview with Yorkshire Television for its 1998 documentary, “Kinsey’s Paedophiles.”
“[Kinsey] was deeply affected by five paedophile headmasters who … had … loving relationships with young adolescent boys of 12 or 13,” Kinsey biographer Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy told Yorkshire Television in 1998.
Gebhard told Yorkshire Television, “We got them [pedophiles] in prisons, a lot of them. … We’d go after them … Then there was also a pedophile organization in this country … not incarcerated … they cooperated.”
Alfred Kinsey himself attributed the data on the 317 children to at least nine men, according to his statement on page 177 of the 1948 edition of “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male”:
“Better data on pre-adolescent climax come from the histories of adult males who have had sexual contacts with younger boys and who, with their adult backgrounds, are able to recognize and interpret the boys’ experiences … 9 of our adult male subjects have observed such orgasm. Some of these adults are technically trained persons who have kept diaries or other records which have been put at our disposal; and from them we have secured information on 317 preadolescents who were either observed in self masturbation, or who were observed in contacts with other boys or older adults,” wrote Kinsey.
In the 1995 Herald-Times article, Gebhard also acknowledged the Kinsey Institute declined to report its contacts with pedophiles to the police, for fear of jeopardizing its ongoing research.
“There couldn’t have been any research if we turned them in. Of course, we knew when we interviewed the pedophiles that they would continue the activity, but we didn’t do anything about that.”
While being interviewed for the 1998 BBC documentary, Gebhard acknowledged off-camera that the Kinsey researchers obtained information not only from individual pedophiles, but a pedophile organization which preceded the present-day North American Man Boy Love Association.
Two of the pedophiles Kinsey worked with can be identified individually. The “one man” referred to by Bancroft, on whom Kinsey certainly relied for much of his information about “orgasms” in prepubescent boys, is said to be known by several names to Kinsey Institute researchers, including Rex King, Mr. Green and Mr. X.
King was “an Arizona pedophile who raped 800 children,” wrote Kinsey colleague Wardell Pomeroy in his 1972 book “Dr. Kinsey and the Institute for Sex Research.” Pomeroy said King was introduced to heterosexual intercourse by his grandmother and homosexual intercourse by his father, and had sex with “countless” adults of both sexes, as well as animals.
Gebhard told Yorkshire Television that King was an exceptionally valuable source of information.
“Nursery school people … parents … couldn’t give us the extraordinary detail that Green did. It was illegal and we knew it was illegal, and that’s why a lot of people are furious … they say we should have turned him in instantly … [but] if we had turned him in it would have been the end of our research project.”
“Kinsey began his courtship of Mr. X in the fall of 1943,” wrote Pomeroy. “He correctly divined that Mr. X longed for recognition and approval. From the beginning, therefore, Kinsey treated him like a colleague, a fellow seeker of truth who had compiled valuable scientific data.”
According to Pomeroy, King had spent years keeping records of his rapes of young children, and eventually turned the records over to Kinsey.
According to one of Kinsey’s biographers, Jim Jones, in March 1945 Kinsey offered to pay King a salary if he would take leave from his government job to pull together all his records, particularly those on “preadolescent orgasms.”
Also in 1943, during the Second World War, Kinsey began a correspondence with a German pedophile, Nazi officer and doctor, Fritz von Balluseck.
Balluseck pursued “quite a correspondence” with Kinsey and the Kinsey Institute, according to Gebhard. Yorkshire Television’s 1998 transcripts record Gebhard saying, “Police [seeking a child sex murderer] went through his possessions … found his correspondence with Kinsey … they got Interpol … and the FBI … put … pressure on Kinsey to reveal the guy’s … sexual diary … Kinsey said, absolutely not … .[T]he poor paedophile … had his reputation destroyed … finally quit corresponding with us.”
In 1957, Balluseck was convicted of abusing children over a period of 30 years. The abuse took place in Germany and in Poland, where von Balluseck, a member of the Gestapo, was given access to Jewish girls as young as 9. Balluseck reportedly made the girls choose between submitting to him and facing the gas chambers.
Dr. Balluseck … [recorded measurements] of his crimes committed against children between 9 and 14 years old …. in four thick diaries … of a pseudo-scientific character … while in correspondence with the American sexual researcher Kinsey,” reported the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, May 22, 1957.
During Balluseck’s trial, the judge reportedly said, “I had the impression that you got to the children in order to impress Kinsey and to deliver him material.” According to Neues Deutschland, Balluseck replied, “Kinsey himself asked me to do so.”
