The Institute was a non-profit foundation situated in Tiergarten, Berlin. It was headed by Magnus Hirschfeld. Hirschfeld built a unique library on same-sex love and eroticism. The Nazi book burnings in Berlin included the archives of the Institute.
In an expansive survey of more than 8, Americans conducted in late , Kinsey Institute researchers found the use of sex tech is on the rise and users report feeling connected to virtual partners both emotionally and sexually. An overarching finding from the research revealed that participants who were engaging with sex tech reported less loneliness and less depression than those who were not engaging with sex tech, but only for those engagers who felt an emotional or personal connection with their virtual partners. Lower rates of loneliness were also found for people who held more positive attitudes toward their own sexuality, as was greater satisfaction with their lives overall. Amanda Gesselman , Anita Aldrich Endowed Research Scientist and Associate Director for Research at the Kinsey Institute, noted that," technology is becoming more pervasive in our romantic and sexual lives, and we're beginning to have a better understanding of the role of sex tech in our relationships and sexual experiences.
