Max Levin's article for the New England Journal of Medicine titled “The Physician and the Sexual Revolution” was critical of Alfred Kinsey and other scientific researchers in the new era and its new set of values. While physicians maintained that pre-marital sexual relations increase the chances of a happy marriage, Levin asserted that premarital sexual activity posed a threat to future marital happiness and sexual adjustment. This epilogue examines Levin's assessment of the sexual revolution. It also describes the growing ideological tensions concerning matters of sexuality and the changing sexual and social trends, which include the increased use of contraceptives, demand for safe and legal abortions, and new expectations of the marital relationship.
