Annotated Bibliography of Research on Lesbianism and Male Homosexuality (1967-1974).
Morin, Stephen F.
Researchers in recent years have given increased attention to the empirical study of lesbianism and male homosexuality. This annotated bibliography outlines major findings of 139 empirical studies published in English-language journals and referenced in Psychological Abstracts in the eight-year period from 1967 to 1974. Articles included in the bibliography are those listed in the cumulative index under "homosexuality,""lesbianism," and "male homosexuality." Case histories, treatment articles, theories, and reviews of research are not included, nor are books, dissertations, or nonpublished papers read at conventions. The bibliography includes 22 studies on lesbians, 88 studies on male homosexuals, and 12 studies on both lesbians and male homosexuals. Heterosexual subjects have been used to study attitudes toward homosexuality and latent homosexual impulses in 15 studies; the remaining two studies are on homosexual behavior in lower animals. Of the research conducted on lesbians and homosexual men, 82% has been comparative; the remaining research is primarily of a survey nature on more narrowly defined topics, such as homosexuals in heterosexual marriages. Since one of the biggest problems in research on lesbians and male homosexuals is sampling an essentially invisible or hidden population, a brief description of subject specifications precedes each summary of results.
