His ''[[Kinsey Reports]]''—starting with the publication of ''[[Sexual Behavior in the Human Male]]'' in 1948, followed in 1953 by ''[[Sexual Behavior in the Human Female]]''—reached the top of bestseller lists and turned Kinsey into an instant celebrity, and are still the best selling scientific books of all time. Articles about him appeared in magazines such as ''[[Time (magazine)|Time]]'', ''[[Life magazine|Life]]'', ''[[Look (American magazine)|Look]]'', and ''[[McCall's]]''. Kinsey's reports, which led to a storm of controversy, are regarded by many as an enabler of the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Indiana University's president [[Herman B Wells]] defended Kinsey's research in what became a well-known test of [[academic freedom]].
