Virginia Johnson – the icon and pioneer of the scientific approach in sexology just passed away aged 88

Virginia Johnson – the icon and pioneer of the scientific approach in sexology, just passed away on July 24th 2013 in St. Louis, USA. Together with the gynecologist William Masters created a duo that in the 60s, 70s and 80s of the twentieth century revolutionized modern understanding of research in sexology.

First they were colleagues at work, then lovers, then got married, and then finally got divorced after 20 years of marriage…
Masters and Johnson authored the highly influential and successful approach in sex therapy using therapeutic techniques developed in the laboratory tests by observing sexual responses of real individuals and couples. Masters died in 2001 and now Johnson has passed away, but for sure they will remain famous icons of modern clinical sexology forever.
