[Perspectives] Sexual science beyond the medical

The US television series Masters of Sex tells the story of how William H Masters and Virginia E Johnson began to work together in the 1960s to study, observe, and measure the physiology of human sexual response. The series depicts the couple as pioneers in applying clinical observation to the study of human sexuality and focuses on the challenges they faced in persuading medical authorities to accept the validity of their work. Masters of Sex presents a later chapter within a longer history of the 150-year struggle to establish sex research as a legitimate discipline.
