Still didnt explain how to reach orgasm.
16 September 2019 | by kweeejSee all my reviews

We all know spot and female orgasm is still a mystery for many. i feel like its saying things that we all know already, it basically revolves around the topic but didn't really give any more explanation or how to reach orgasm.
