A look at the life of Alfred Kinsey, a pioneer in the area of human sexuality research, whose 1948 publication "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" was one of the first recorded works that saw science address sexual behavior.
Tim Curry admitted that his casting in the film as the conservative Thurman Rice was ironic due to Curry's famous role as the sexually experimenting Dr. Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), and it was director Bill Condon's intention to avoid portraying Rice as humorless.
Don't sit so far away. Anything that creates a distance should be avoided.
During Kinsey's lecture a phonograph is shown playing a classical recording. The music is heard but the tone arm's position is shown not playing the record.
At the end of the film (following the main cast credits), a montage featuring Kinsey Institute footage of the mating habits of various animals is accompanied by "Fever" by Little Willie John.
