Sex offenders in California: beware! New public-place laws are restricting and banning many more areas where convicted sex offenders can go. Because of ´´child safety zones´´, some beaches, parks, and harbors are now off limits. Susie reads from a New York Times article that lays out both sides of the issue. Of course parents want their kids to be safe, but as Susie notes, many convicted sex offenders were picked up for public urination, not sex crimes. Orange County has taken the severe step of placing all ´´sex´´ offenders into one group that needs to be feared and restricted. Next, in our ´´Tell Me Your Sex Story´´ segment, Susie talks with another willing listener who steps into her sexual confession booth. Today we meet ´´Cecelia´´, a 38-year-old woman from the Midwest who has had many sexual experiences - and she´s willing to talk details. Susie and Cecelia discuss how pheromones change a transgendered person´s smell, about doing a strip tease dressed as a clown, and ponder who´s hotter: a butch dyke or a gay femme? Then, Susie reaches into our ´´Try This at Home´´ mailbag and finds a letter about sex and disabilities: ´´Dear Susie, how do you have sex in a wheelchair?´´ Have a question? You can call Susie´s hotline at 831-480-5110. And you can send your confidential questions - plus requests for free samples and blog banners! - to email@example.com.

Laura and Monique were cousins and, in childhood, had been as close as twins. So when Monique´s husband, the Comte de Montigny, came to Laura and asked her to impersonate Monique in order to protect Monique´s child, she agreed. His story of Monique´s disappearance and suicide, however, did not sound like the actions of the cousin Laura had known, and the rest of Monique´s family reacted with odd hostility to ´´Monique´s´´ reappearance. As ´´accidents´´ threatened the child, the Comte, and Laura herself, Laura didn´t know what to believe or whom to trust. But she feared that Monique had been murdered - and that she would be next. 1.
