Did You Know?


Rina: You guys are not my friends anymore.
Hiroko: Then what are friends? You told me awhile ago that friends are there for you to use. With that reasoning, you don't even value your friends. You don't have to tell us. We will be leaving. I just have one thing to tell you. I did it with Yousuke. With Emi. We had a menage a trois. It was fabulous.

More Than Good Enough
7 February 2019 | by vincent_nigoidSee all my reviews

Babe Galore!! This film is fabulous for those who want story, visuals, character development and yes hard bodies. The chicks are all hawt! The girl understands the meaning of friendship, but unfortunately (as part of the story) has to cut her hair. I am surprised films like these exist and a whole bunch of ehem big boned broads have not attacked it and taken it down. Buy this DVD oh heterosexual men who love movies and flaunting pretty thin things. Apparently, women are allowed to be eye candies in Japan. Please bring your culture to Texas!
