The real William Masters and Virginia Johnson in Kinsey had already questioned this on the basis of his data, but Masters and Johnson definitively proved that the physiological response in the two was identical. Titillated by the voyeurism, they slowly became absorbed in their own research.

Through extralegal arrangements with police, Masters was able to move beyond the Kinsey-style interview-based data collection he found unsatisfying. By cultivating an influential set of backers, partly based on personal debts incurred through his medical practice, Masters ensured a long press blackout in St. Louis, as well as the anxious but quiet support of his home institution at Washington University. Even a liberal Catholic archbishop gave tacit approval for his work.
