BOOK DESCRIPTION

Our society in the opinion of many experts, has gone through more social and sexual change in the past twenty years than in the prior two centuries.  Yet, amazingly, until The Janus Report, there has been no scientific study of sexuality since Masters & Johnson’s influential report of the 1960s, and no large-scale survey since the Kinsey reports forty years ago.

Based on a nationwide survey of adult Americans of every political and religious persuasion, from ages eighteen to eighty and beyond, and from every income bracket and every region of the United States, The Janus Report surpasses all previous studies of American sexuality in both its scope and breadth. Frank, penetrating, and at times surprising in its findings, the Report cuts through platitudes and media hype to delve deeply into the American sexual psycho.

Presenting its copious statistical findings in more than 270 tables, along with the observations of a panel of consulting experts,  and numerous candid accounts by participants recounting their personal experiences, The Janus Report details for the first time the enormous changes in sexual attitudes and practices that have occurred in the 1980s and 1990s.

The Janus Report also sheds new light on a number of today’s most important social and political issues including love, marriage, divorce, parenthood, and abortion –offering revelations that are bound to make a lasting impression on the general public and influence the thinking of national policymakers and social scientists for years to come.
