Guess the Scientist, #2

What scientist wrote the following passage? The answer is in extended (and on the comments page).

A small experimental room was fitted with a bed and other items conducive to a normal sexual response. The bed was placed directly against a wall through which an opening was made. Both sides of the opening were covered with a thick sheet of foam rubber. Slits were made in the foam rubber so that the leads to the instruments could be passed to the recording room while still maintaining the privacy of the experimental room. All of the subjects were married and were between the ages of 22 and 30.

To record the heart rate four electrocardiographic leads, fashioned from wire mesh attached to an elastic bandage, were fastened to the upper thighs and the upper arms. With this technique the ECG was readable even during the periods of greatest muscular activity. During foreplay, records were taken each minute on two Sanborn direct writing electrocardiographs. During coitus continuous recordings were made, and after withdrawal records were again made a 1-minute intervals. Three tests were performed on each of three couples.

Answer: If you guessed Congressman Roscoe G. Bartlett, the currently serving Republican representative from the 6th District of Maryland, you're right! Before becoming a politician, he was a sex researcher and in 1956 authored the study "Physiologic Responses During Coitus" (Journal of Applied Physiology, 9: 469-472), from which the above passage is excerpted.

I wonder how much those people got paid to participate in the scientific experiment?
I'd like to volunteer!

I meant volunteer to participate and happily accept whatever compensation they're offering!
Does that make me a hooker?

Sounds like he was just gathering info to become the perfect politician.

Well, he is a republican. You can tell because he made sure to note that all participants were married. Wonder if they were married to each other...

Wonder if 1 minute might've been too coarse of an interval. ^_^
