The following conversations, Oprah says, are some of the most important she has ever heard—the chilling confessions of convicted sex offenders. "You will see how calculating [molestation] is," Oprah says, "It's a calculated seduction."

One man said he would volunteer to watch the kids so that he could be alone with them. After his wife returned home, he would tell her that he did something "strange" to one of the children, and that child may have misinterpreted his actions. That way, if the child mentioned it to her mother, she would already figure it was a misunderstanding.

Another man said most of his victims were in single-mother environments. He says he would "groom" the children—touching them accidentally, giving them little hugs and pecks—to see how far he could go. When he felt safe enough, he said he would ask to give them a French kiss.
