I’ve never really been the type to go out on one night stands. I have nothing against it or people that do it themselves but it’s just not my thing. I’ve always just craved something much deeper, more intimate. I love the feeling of truly emotionally connecting with someone before our clothes come off. Getting to know them and feeling our connection grow as we get to know each other. So that when the magic moment comes, it’s this beautifully raw passion filled event were we come together emotionally just as much as we do physically. No one is left unsatisfied, everything is safe, and there’s lots of snuggling afterwards.
