Be wary of this movie. It has a scene where a man talks about having sex with young boys. The movie is good, but this scene got me, HARD.

Kinsey caused a whole load of bad thinking about sexuality and damage.
Dont even be there, people are going beyond this thinking. I hope!

I have to agree to some extent. I don't see much interesting or healthy for me about watching this movie.

If I could sage (internet slang for adding info without actually bumping the thread) I would, but I wanted to include my thoughts about that scene. It is very triggering, but it is actually a lot less disturbing than reality. In the movie, Kinsey yells at the pedophile and tells him that he doesn't want people like this in his study. In actuality, Kinsey not only used the pedophile's words in his study but pretended the pedophile was multiple subjects and used this sicko's responses to imply that childhood sex was normal and enjoyable. He also made no attempt to bring the criminal to justice. The movie makes it appear that Kinsey was adamantly anti-pedophile when there is reason to think he was, at best, ambivalent.

Was this even against the law in the 1940s when Kinsey heard of it - let alone the 1920s when the freak actually did it?

An 1895 newspaper article lists Delaware as having the lowest age of consent at seven years, 4 have the age of ten, four at twelve, three at thirteen, and all other states at higher ages. Its not clear to what extent boys fell under these laws, but there were also laws against homosexual behavior. Some states, including Indiana, also had laws against trying to sexually arouse young people (presumably because it induced moral failings, not because of psychological damage). The court cases of the first half of the 20th century found that many of the laws were too vague and so the court could rule any number of contradicting ways. But if Kinsey had been so inclined, there certainly would have been avenues he could have pursued.
