Women Under Me

Women Under Me
This is a brief reminiscence on the women I have worked with (or for) over my seven years in adult.

Looking Back

Looking Back
Two years ago, I entered the adult entertainment industry and deliberately tried to understand how it functions from an objective point of view.
