Virginia E. Johnson, a writer, researcher and sex therapist who with her longtime collaborator, William H. Masters, helped make the frank discussion of sex in postwar America possible if not downright acceptable, died on Wednesday in St. Louis. She was 88. Her son, Scott Johnson, confirmed the death, The Associated Press reported.
Dr. Masters was a gynecologist on the faculty of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis when he began his research into human sexuality in the mid-1950s. Ms. Johnson, who joined him in 1957 after answering an advertisement for an assistant, worked alongside him for more than three decades. She was variously his research associate, wife and former wife.

She was a glorified slut and adulteress.
So, just what did they do for humanity?
And yet, with all their "knowledge" they were never able to measure the sacredness of the sexual expression between a married man and woman and how God plays His part in their marriage.
They permanently killed the myth of the vaginal orgasm.
They may have had doctorates, but they belong in the same social class as Hugh Hefner.

Is that better or worse to have in your obituary than "aspiring rapper"?
It probably made more women happy. Freud had a whole thing about the superiority of the vaginal orgasm over the “immature” clitoral orgasm, leading a lot of women to feel inferior or that they were somehow flawed when they couldn’t achieve it. M&J proved there was only one kind.
Did she go out with a bang?
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
couple of sick freaks
Freud was a sicko himself
Does any analytic discussion of sexuality have to be sick?
No, But somehow associating it with liberalism certainly makes it seem so.
How was Master’s and Johnson liberal? Maybe there’s a part of their research I don’t know about. Or Freud for that matter who was basically a conservative. His view of humanity was not rosy colored by any means.
well I wouldn’t say any but the stuff this goofball talked about and Freud talked about sure was
I don’t know enough about this woman but Freud sure didn’t.
Freud was a sicko
Personally or in his work? His work is very clear and lucid.
He created a fake and destructive pseudo science in order to label evil as sick.
STAY AWAY FROM PSYCHOLOGISTS, PEOPLE
On dear. Psychoanalysis and therapy has helped many people. It was always around in one form or another...Freud just moved it from the Confessional booth and Pastor’s house to the medical field.
It has destroyed many people with its inherent “self actualization” selfishness. No it has not “helped” many people asking questions like “what’s in it for me?” And breaking up families and justifying cutting people off. It is a sick and wrong field.

If you cut Christ out of the proceedings then true healing is never possible.
she made “fake but relavent” part of science. They lied about their data and observations in order to market junk science.
Freud was a nut. You can tell because he thought we were all nuts, and he considered himself typical (thus why he dismissed all claims to cocaine’s addictiveness, because he didn’t get hooked). So think of every odd trait Freud insisted everyone has (but you probably don’t, and most people clearly don’t) and understand Freud had them all. Still some useful and interesting insights into the human condition, but still a man with serious issues whose primary method of dealing with them was declaring they were normal.
I’m happy for Mrs. Buckeye, and all women are different, with different sensitivities and sensitiveness, but stimulation all leads, physiologically, to the same nerves and the same chain reaction. The issue was more about the inferiority or superiority of one over the other.
You should check out the Scientologists. You have a lot in common.
Liberals will endorse anything that leads to debauchery. Queen nancy’s fake indignation notwithstanding.
You should check out the Catholic Church, you need it
Been there, done that.
you are always welcome back
By the way, you might want to check out the church’s position on psychology.
it is of the other
