by James Denison / January 5, 2013 2:35 PM PST

Well, here's his son. He's #6 of 18.

William H. Masters IIIThis
undated photo provided by the Huron County Sheriff shows William Howell
Masters III, 60, of South Hampton, N.Y. Masters, the son of sex
research pioneer Dr. William H. Masters, has been charged with exposing
himself to a sheriff's deputy and another woman who were posing as
recreational kayakers as part of a sting operation on a Michigan river.
Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says a completely nude Masters yelled
for the women's attention Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012, then made obscene
gestures. (AP Photo/Huron County Sheriff)

Like father like son? One did it for "science", one for.......?

Dr. William H. Masters exposed himself in public?

Hunh??? There is no connection or logic to this post.

Lots of famous fathers have embarrassing sons. It's not because the father was invloved in Sex Research that this guy became a flasher. If that were true, we'd have a lot fewer flashers in the US as a whole, because there aren't that many sex researchers.

The inside of your head must be a very strange place to think this is a damning piece of "evidence".

Research and study of human sexuality....
by Josh K / January 7, 2013 3:15 AM PST

....is now "perverse sex?"

I guess you're from the streetcorner school of "the less you know about human sexuality, the better?"

Marriage is all the research he needed
by James Denison / January 7, 2013 3:19 AM PST

going beyond that was "perverse".

Another gem from James

Advocating sexual ignorance; you never cease to amuse. People who get married benefit from this knowledge, James. It also helps doctors, criminal justice professionals and sociologists gain better understanding of sexual pathologies.

So we'll add "the less people know about sex and the human body, the better" to your list of pearls of wisdom.

are you sexually ignorant Josh?

In reply to: Another gem from James

You are married. By your definition that seems to make you sexually ignorant.

There's no need to understand sexual pathologies, just a need to use corrective actions such as to punish them.

Nothing like being willfully ignorant, is there, James.

Heaven forbid we learn something to understand and maybe, you know, prevent some of the things you'd prefer to just punish after the fact. Remember the good old days when people thought that people with Tourette's were possessed by demons?

His argument is quite good, actually

The rest of us who live in the real world instead of some odd puritanical nightmare understand precisely what he means.

FWIW, a lot of offspring of famous/well regarded individuals have acted out in different ways. Look it up if you need to. Perhaps the terms 'peer reviewed literature' might be something you could look into some day (LOL).

engaged in some sort of perversion since they are investigating something unpleasant that makes people feel bad, kind of like sex researchers???

Nah, you'll think I'm taking the analogy too far, just like I think you're taking your analogy too far.
