Letters to Editor
We want to thank you and your
staff for continuing to send us
copies of your paper. As the only
"homosexual" information center
in the world we get requests for
information on homosexuality and
the movement and need to have our
library complete with material
from as many groups, geographical areas, etc., as possible. We
believe that such publications as
yours do a service to the comm-
by letting others know of new
groups, etc. Many publications do
not do this since they, unfortunately, do not support the whole
movement, but only those groups
that conform to thinking political
or religious thinking. I have personally for years had to be patient with each new young gay lib
leader that wanted us to conform
to his or her thinking. Only this
year a young lady that I had urged
a college professor to invite to
speak to his class, because no
other group existed for women,
took up the class time and latter
the professor's time putting down
me and the center. The fact that
many of the new self-appointed
leaders come from the Socialist
Workers Party might have something to do with their fear of
freedom of thought in the movement, since they have divided loyalties. And the movement will have
to survive the promotion of charlatans and exploiters by the news-
media and many college professors
who only know what Time or Playboy knows-or says. The 99% of
the average 20 million Americans
who perform homosexual acts do
not get honest balanced coverage.
Even in the gay press. Our world-
famous bibliography is used by the
thousands of college and public
librarians simply because there is
no other that is balanced andhas no
political or social or religious
viewpoint to promote. Our directory, which you received but have
not mentioned, also gives a listing that is balanced and based on
You also got our last newsletter which you did use in various ways. Since you did not as
responsible editors and journalists contact us, I will not force
any information on you, but someday you may want to reexamine
your trust in government officials,

I am 45 years old and have been
gay since I was 13. I drank socially without problems until I was
30 years old. I then contracted
the disease alcoholism. Alcoholism is recognized as a disease
by all including the American Medical Association. After 13 years
of uncontrolled drinking I went to
Alcoholics Anonymous and asked
for help. That was almost three
years ago, and I haven't had a
drink since. I have learned now how
to live without alcohol and scarcely
think about it anymore. I have
learned to cruise the streets, bus
stations and bars all without alcohol as a prop.
As you may know we in Alcoholics Anonymous help ourselves
by helping others. There are no
dues or fees fo A.A.; we are self
supporting through our own contributions. A.A. members nevernev-
er never charge anyone any fees
whatsoever for helping other alcoholics.
Could Nuntius, as a public service publish the following, maybe
in "TRAD'N TRICKS"
Gays get alcoholism too. To
learn how Alcoholics Anonymous
helped me in Dallas, call Lee B.
I would use my full last name
but it is contrary to the A.A.
Twelve Traditions to do so. That
is why we are Alcoholics Anonymous. By theway "Gays get alcoholism..." is accepted good usage
as alcoholism is recognized as <
disease. Thank you.

NEW YORK (UPI) - The
United States is in the midst
of a "vast, profound and unprecedented" sexual liberation movement, according to
a survey published in Playboy magazine.
The survey said that pre-
maritial sex has become both
acceptable and widespread,
with the change most
noteworthy in women.
The "social changes related
to sexual liberation have been
vast, profound and unprecedented," the survey said.
"Americans are more tolerant of the sexual ideas and
acts of other persons than
formerly and far, far freer to
envision various previously
forbidden acts as possible for
The survey was commissioned by the Playboy Foundation and conducted by the
Research Guild, Inc., a private research organization.
It indicated that although
sexual attitudes of Americans
had gone through radical
changes since the Kinsey
study 25 years ago, the
changes have not destroyed
"institutions necessary to the
stability of society itself."
The survey included inter-
views with 2,026 persons over
17 — 982 men and 21,044
women — living in both cities
and suburbs. Seventy one per
cent of those surveyed were
married, 25 per cent single
and 4 per cent divorced.
In his sexual behavior study
a generation ago. Dr. Alfred
Kinsey reported that one-third
of single women in his study
had intercourse by the age of
25. The Playboy survey found
that about 75 per cent of
single women admitted premarital relations before 25,
and said they were doing it
In other findings, 32 per
cent of the married men under 25 surveyed said they had
engaged in extramarital rela-
tionsj oniy a slight increase
over the Kinsey figures. However,^ per cent of wives under i> admitted extramarital
affairs, a jump of about 15
per cent since Kinsey's study..
In contrast, the survey said;
"The great majority of people
still feel that love and sex are
too closely interwoven to be
separable at will or for fun.
Anywhere from 80 to 98 per
cent of the men and women
in our study say that they or
their mates would object to
any kind of extramarital sex
experience by their partners."
In relation to this, more
than half of the divorced persons interviewed said that extramarital affairs caused
their marriages to break up.
Other findings included:
• Couples have, in general,
considerably increased the
variety of sexual techniques.
• Homosexuality did not
seem to have increased in incidence since the Kinsey survey, but "it has most definitely increased in visibility." In
addition, about half of the
heterosexuals interviewed disagreed with the statement
"homosexuality is wrong."
• There has been decline
i n the use of prostitutes
among single men in the 18-24
age range. In Kinsey's
sample nearly a third of the
single men between 16 and 20
resorted to prostitutes. The
Playboy survey showed only 3
per cent of single men resorted to> prostitutes in the
• The statement "Sex is
one of the most beautiful
parts of life" won a yes vote
from 90 per cent or more of
the men and women in every
