St. Louis, USA, For hundreds of years, the science relating to human sexuality issues are always considered taboo and inappropriate for be realized. Here he is a doctor who dared find issues sex problem in terms of biology, urology and medicine.
He is Dr. William Howell Masters, a pioneer and the first to learn about anatomy and physiology of human sexuality in the laboratory in 1956. The report findings are highly controversial, even more widely criticized.
Masters was born on December 27, 1915 in Cleveland, Ohio. He attended public schools in Kansas City until the eighth grade and then continue on the Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
His interest in science related to sexuality starts since he entered the University of Rochester School of Medicine and began working in the laboratory of Dr. George’s Corner, which compare and study the reproductive tract of animals and humans.
During the first year of medical school, the Masters became interested in sexuality because it has not been scientifically investigated the function of physiology.
At that time, academics are still considered taboo, and no one wants to touch issues of human sexuality. The influence of culture and orthodox religion is very strong handcuff research efforts of human sexual life.
Initially, Masters became interested in the work of Dr. Alfred Kinsey, professor of zoology University of Indiana who has interviewed thousands of men and women about their sexual experiences.
To prepare for his research, he began working in the gynecology at St. Louis Hospital and Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, USA. He also worked in pathology at Washington University School of Medicine.
New in 1954, Masters decided that he was ready to conduct research about sexual physiology. He was concerned about the lack of information about sexuality in the medical profession that is applied to understand the problems of patients.
Masters received permission from Washington University School of Medicine to launch a series of pioneering experiments that secretly called reproductive biology.
Reported by The Independent, Tuesday (11/30/2010), the subject was first Masters male and female prostitutes. He studied sosioseksual and medical history of the subject, and also observe and measure the physiological response to sexual arousal.
Within 15 years since the mid-1950s, he recorded the results of laboratory and reactive pattern analysis for effective sexual stimulation in a large number of men and women.
This research provides the basis for sexual therapy work for decades. In conducting this research, he was assisted by fellow researchers who also became the first wife, Virginia Eshelman Johnson.
In 1966 Masters and Johnson research results published as Human Sexual Response. This book reap sensation and controversy, but it actually makes this book so popular. In the second book, Human Sexual Inadequacy (1970), Masters talk about impotence.
Despite reaping a lot of criticism, he still continued research seksologinya. In 1979 Masters and Johnson study and describe the sexual response of homosexuals and lesbians are the results published in Homosexuality in Perspective.
Further controversy on his work occurred in 1988, when Masters and Johnson wrote a book called Crisis: heterosexual Behavior in the Age of AIDS. Some members of the medical community strongly condemn even this research.
However, efforts to pioneer and create Masters of scientific research with the subject of human sexuality eventually awarded the Paul H. Psychopathic Hoch Award from the American Association in 1971. And an award-Sex Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) in 1972 and three other prestigious awards.
