New Porn Daily: Naomi Cruise is a chameleon, crime magnet
Looking at the box covers of Raincoater's Point of View 6 and Send it Down 3, shot one month apart this year and featuring someone named Naomi Cruise, my first thought was "Who are these two people?", because they couldn't be the same person.But they are the same person.
