The son of a famous sex researcher has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor public lewdness for a  May 9 incident in which a police officer saw him masturbating in Manhattan’s Central Park. By taking the guilty plea, William H. Masters III, 60, will avoid jail.

Masters was also arrested in Michigan for allegedly exposing himself to two female kayakers on the Pinnebog River, who were actually undercover officers working in a sting operation to nab flashers. According to Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson, Masters was completely naked and yelling obscenities at the officers. That case is pending.

Masters is the son of the late Dr. William H. Masters, a gynecologist who was one half of the sexuality research team  Masters and Johnson throughout the latter half of the 20th century.
