The Inner Circle by T. C. Boyle

In The Inner Circle, John Milk is a young man, a virgin, who takes a job as an assistant to Dr. Alfred Kinsey, who has found his calling as a sex researcher. Kinsey is a charming, gregarious, and controlling man, and see the research possibilities presented by the virginal Milk. As Milk becomes one of the "inner circle," a group of researchers who work for Kinsey, much of his life and sexual experiences revolve around Kinsey's wishes. Even after he's married, Milk continues to let Kinsey dictate much of his sex life, but his wife, Iris, may be as strong-willed as Kinsey. T. C. Boyle's tenth novel explores sex, marriage, and jealousy during a key chapter in American history. The Inner Circle has received positive reviews with the Rocky Mountain News saying, "Written in a winning, conversational style, The Inner Circle is a quick read despite running more than 400 pages, and it manages to be at once funny and sad, sordid and profound, much like Kinsey, the man around which it swirls."
