given to the Kinsey Report on women's sexual behavior is in itself a remarkable indication
of the change which has taken place in the American mind. It is significant Dr. Kinsey and
his assistants could gather this type of intimate information from some 6000 women.
Scorpio is usually considered to be related to sexual activity and to all passions
connected with sex. But actually we must differentiate clearly between two aspects of sex.
Sex as a strictly biological and procreative function of the human animal is expressed in
