In popular opinion, a heterosexual sexual revolution swept the United States in the 1960s, leading to a new openness about sexual relations and to the embrace of early sexual experience with multiple partners. This presentation questions this view. During the 1960s, sexual change came about at a modest pace. Also, claims of sexual revolution already had a long history by that time period. We will review those claims, and discuss the fundamental elements that might qualify changes in sexual relations as revolutionary. I make a case for an earlier, and quite different, revolution in the structure of American heterosexuality.
