Between a cluster of bars in this small coastal town, middle-aged European men hover around dozens of fresh-faced Brazilian women in tight dresses. Around the corner, two girls who look to be in their teens flag down cars, signaling their availability to potential clients. Most such activity, however, seems confined to a small, seedy tourist strip, the last gasp of a bygone era. Natal, long known as a hot spot for sex tourism, has seen fewer problems in the wake of a national economic boom and concerted government efforts to cut back on the Carnaval nation's carnal image.

Even as the United States continues its historic move toward fairness and equity for gay people, antiquated anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in a dozen states. Theoretically, these laws were rendered unenforceable by the Supreme Court's 2003 ruling in Lawrence vs. Texas, but apparently not everyone has received that message. In the Lawrence case, the court declared that state laws banning consensual same-sex relations were unconstitutional. Yet somehow, between 2011 and 2014, 12 men were arrested in East Baton Rouge Parish in Louisiana under the state's remaining anti-sodomy laws.

The first sex shop in Russian history opened to the public on Monday--only, please, its management insisted, don't call it a sex shop. "We call it 'an intimacy salon,' " director Alla Burashnikova said as she sat primly in a corner watching deeply interested Russians examine glow-in-the-dark condoms, an inflatable woman and six sets of shelves holding probably the broadest array of sexual devices ever gathered in one public place on Russian soil. "We propagandize health," Burashnikova said.

SACRAMENTO-- California Senate leader Darrell Steinberg says he'll seek a state investigation into California's supervision of sex offenders that goes beyond the circumstances of two Orange County transients recently accused of killing multiple women while they were supervised by state and federal agents and tracked on electronic monitors. Steinberg's staff said Friday that the Sacramento Democrat planned Monday to formally request a probe by the Office of the Inspector General. However, speaking at a public policy forum Monday afternoon, Steinberg said his office is still drafting a call for an inquiry into the $63.5 million California spends each year supervising some 6,000 sex offenders with GPS monitors.

Is there really such a thing as sexual addiction ? Not in the usual meaning of the word, says Paul R. Abramson, a professor of psychology at UCLA and a prominent author in the field of sexual psychology. "We generally conceive of an addiction as a physiological dependence, which we can attempt to wean an individual of," Abramson says. Viewing sexual excesses as the equivalent of alcohol or drug addiction is wrong, he says. "Primarily, [sexual addiction] is really compulsive behavior.
