"Sexology was a magazine about the practice of human sexuality, founded by polymath and publisher Hugo Gernsback. It was published in New York City between 1933 and 1983. The magazine had a circulation of up to 200,000 at its peak,  and was also known under the titles Sexology Together and Sexology Today. "

In an article about the magazine being shuttered in 1983, Cathy Burke writes:

"Sexology Today, the Playboy and Penthouse of its heyday, has fallen victim to the sexual revolution that it helped promote over the last half-century....

The 'digest' magazine was founded in 1933 by Hugo Gernsback, namesake of the Hugo Awards for outstanding science fiction writing... The 96-page magazine was a "how-to" manual, with illustrative photos and some artwork... Tabatch said the demise of Sexology Today was a testament to its success. "It's not healthy for us that it folded, of course," said Tabatch. "But it does reflect a certain positive side to society. Gernsback had a very keen interest in providing people with a clear understanding of sex, to destroy the myths and fallacies. He started a whole revolution in sex magazines."
