John William Money (8 July 1921 – 7 July 2006) was a New Zealand psychologist, sexologist and author. He researched human sexuality and gender identity.[1]

Money studied education and psychology at Victoria University of Wellington.[2] Money was a professor at Johns Hopkins University in the United States.[1]

Money made the "theory of neutrality", which argued that males and females are born without psychological differences. This lead him to conduct an experiment where he raised a boy as a girl, which failed.[3][4]
