Somewhere I read that Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey isn't having much trouble getting women to talk for his next report. "Sexual Behavior the Human Female"—the Inevitable follow-up to his report, "Sexual Bchnvior in the Human Male.' J I can't help but feel tual the women are making a mistake in being so obligingly co-operative. For hundreds of years women ha\e had the good sense to be closemouthed about their love lives. Men might brag of their many conquests and wide experience. But women have kept stil! about their pasta. They have remained silent, lor their own individual protection. And by each woman's protecting herself and her own reputation, women in general have been protected. What was kept secret for the ad vantage of one woman has worked to the advantage of all women. But the women who are talking eagerly and frankly to Dr. Kitisey and his staff nre putting the finger on women a* a group. From the ans-^rs of the women being interviewed, a picture wil be drawn that will b« assumed to be repre-'-T;* i of America! women in genera). Wttl C.ire mfferenl Impression You m be tty sure It'i going to be the picture that women have so carefully and cautiously built about themselves. The women who are "telling all,' of course, have been made to fee that by doing so they are contributing their part to & worth' •scientific study. But when it comes to love an< .sex—it has always been an advantage to women to be a little bi_ mysterious to men. They won't be mysteriou after the Kinsey repor on women is made public. And unless T «• iss my guess they're due ip come in for nnothe: avalanche of criticism. Their fac tual ca.-ie hLtories. lumped togethe:. in Ihe form of a report, are bounc to be used against them. So, perhaps the women hav made a mistake in letting a man sell them on the idea that a sclcn tific .study of sexual behavior In Royal Service Program Held by Baptist W.M.I/.
