Digital Playground's Cavalcade of Synonyms

Digital Playground's Cavalcade of Synonyms
Digital Playground employs three directors: co-founder Joone, who is in charge of the yearly high-budget movies, Robby D., who makes the lion's share of the company's gonzo releases like Jack's Playground and Deeper, and Celeste (formerly Bunny Luv), who directs the glossy, music video-style couple...

Call Me “Four Eyes”

Call Me “Four Eyes”

New, Older Porn Daily: Cougars on the Hunt

New, Older Porn Daily: <i>Cougars on the Hunt</i>
I prefer the term "cougar" to "MILF" because the former doesn't require all the fact-checking the latter does.
