Inspired by the Kinsey Institute's syndicated newspaper column titled The Kinsey Confidential, this exhibit in the Kinsey Institute Gallery looks at commonly asked questions about sexual health and behavior. Questions are answered and illustrated using artworks, photographs, objects, and print materials from the Institute's extensive art and library collections. The exhibit was displayed in the Kinsey Institute Gallery from August 27 - December 21, 2007.

Featured items range from 19th century fine art and photographs to thought-provoking works by contemporary artists, including Deena des Rioux, Betsy Stirratt, Judy Dater, Michael Rosen, Belle Wether, Naomi Harris, Carolyn Weltman, Gene Greger, Angela Hunt, J.D. Talasek, Molly Springfield, Joe De Hoyos, Bradley Wicklund, and Candace Nicol.

Garry Milius was the curator of the Kinsey Confidential exhibition. Answers were provided by Dr. Debby Herbenick, PhD, MPH. Dr. Herbenick is Associate Director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, and is a Research Associate in the IU Department of Applied Health Science and The Kinsey Institute. The online exhibit and virtual tour video were designed by Rob Dietz.
