On December 27, 1915, William Masters is born. He worked as a gynecologist, author, and academic until his death in 2001. During his career, he and his wife, Virginia E. Johnson, became pioneers in research on human sexuality and the diagnosis and treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders. Together they founded the Masters and Johnson Institute in 1978 at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Since the now-closed center’s work on sexuality, greater understandings have been achieved on how human sexuality works as demonstrated in Emily Nagoski’s work, particularly her book, “Come As You Are,” which is geared towards a general audience and is meant as part general education and part personal exploration for individuals to understand the mechanics of female sexuality.
