Chronology of Sex Research
The following superficial, unavoidably incomplete and, in part, arbitrary chronology is meant, above all, to illustrate the interdisciplinary character of sexology. It may also indicate how its
development is interwoven with the political and social movements and intellectual fashions of the various historical periods.
I. Predecessors (Antiquity - 1892)
II. Pioneers (1896 - 1936)
III. Modern Sex Research (1938 - 2001)
