Orlando. 2011.” I had retreated back to Florida after seven hellish years in New Jersey,  a desperately unhappy experience from which I was only just beginning to recover.

I Like Tush #1

I think I have used photos from almost every editorial from  Tush Magazine #1 2010. The blend of fashion and fetish just keeps making me happier and happier.
