ugh Hefner was a virgin college studentwhen he read Alfred C. Kinsey’s infa-mous “sex report” and concluded thathe had been lied to all his life. Ameri-can morality was “hypocrisy” writ large, andAmerican moralists were “hysterical,” like crazywomen (from the Greek
hystera,
“womb,” sug-gesting uterine disorders).
The Meddleof Dishonor
Why Isn’t Congress HystericalAbout Adult Porn & Kids?
Kinsey, a closeted bi/homo-sexual who was credited withcreating “a sexual revolution”and “professionalizing” thefield of sexology and sex educa-tion, claimed that all Americanlaws against sex offenses weresymptoms of “hysteria,” andHefner agreed. Hefner said hewould become “Kinsey’s pam-phleteer,” and in December 1953he launched
Playboy 
to serve asKinsey’s colorful populist tract.In 1954 Congress launched aninvestigation into the corruptionof famous “philanthropic” foun-dations, especially the Rockefellerand Ford Foundations. But whenthe time came to examine Rock-efeller grantee Alfred Kinsey, heand his sex study were declaredoff limits. Kinsey was protectedby a bipartisan coalition of Demo-crats and Republicans, who appar-ently wanted to end the “hyste-ria” against the sexual revolution.Perhaps, when thinking ofhysterical women, Kinsey andHefner and their followers hadsomeone like me in mind. Indeed,nearly thirty years later, as Prin-cipal Investigator for the US De-partment of Justice (DOJ) studieson pornography under PresidentRonald Reagan, I faced bipartisanpolitical interference similar towhat happened in 1954.
