Personal Quotes (3)

I am a voyeur and an exhibitionist. I love to watch people have sex. I used to go to swing clubs just to watch. I like outdoor sex, where there is a chance of getting caught. I like romance, candlelight dinners, and long, hot bubble baths.
I like girls who like girls. I like soft-spoken, sweet girls who are not conceited.
I love a girl who wears make-up and carries herself like a lady. A woman that dresses so it leaves something to the imagination in her clothing.
