Human Sexuality Collection

Welcome!

The Human Sexuality Collection seeks to preserve and make accessible primary sources that document historical shifts in the social construction of sexuality, with a focus on U.S. lesbian and gay history and the politics of pornography. We are actively expanding the Collection and are seeking gifts of personal papers, organizational records, rare books, and periodicals that reflect changing views on sexuality. Through this program, Cornell University is working to ensure that a more complete historical record of sexuality will be available to researchers.

We thank Bruce Voeller and David B. Goodstein for their vision and impetus to create the Human Sexuality Collection. Our advisory committee comprised of political and cultural activists, scholars, librarians, and archivists got us off to a good start and helped us define our direction. Continuing thanks go as well to all the other friends who contribute to the growth and success of this historical resource.

Repository: Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University Library

Three papers by Eichel arguing that sexologists with the Kinsey Institute and SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States) privilege and promote pedophilia and non-monogamous, non-heterosexual sex, while at the same time suppressing information about the sexual compatibility of men and women and the ability of monogamous heterosexual couples to have satisfying sexual intercourse. Eichel suggests that with a technique called Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) heterosexual couples can overcome the two most common sexual problems: premature ejaculation and lack of female orgasm. Eichel argues that sexologists plan to use sex education to normalize bisexuality and pedophilia and ultimately to "disenfranchise sexual intercourse, the institution of marriage." Also, some clippings, publicity, and correspondence about his work.
