From alfreda89: The Sex Scholar a Stanford Magazine article about Dr. Clelia Mosher: In other words, it was a sex survey. A Victorian sex survey.

The Mosher Survey recorded not only women's sexual habits and appetites, but also their thinking about spousal relationships, children and contraception. Perhaps, it hinted, Victorian women weren't so Victorian after all.
