Summary :

Lucinda, and her brilliant husband Dr. Lefferts have an interesting relationship. He sees her as a loving wife, and she sees him as a challenge. He's arrogant, difficult, and sexist, but at the same time, he loves her in return.

One morning over breakfast, she brings up a common story. A gorgeous blond ran a red light, and a police officer approaches her vehicle. A flirtatious statement, a toss of the blond head, maybe a little provocative view, and the officer is letting her go with a warning. Lucinda shares her story with a sense of exasperation, but Dr. Lefferts is quite piqued.

He will alter the situation. Women shall no longer have this disgusting sexual power over men, and, being a brilliant scientist, he knows just how to "fix" them.
