    Actually, it’s probably a very nice size, just disproportionate to the statue…..

    I’m amused that some aspects of existence can be so upsetting to people. I feel similar to Venus on this one.”distrust anyone in whom the urge to punish is strong.”

    Someone disproves of a post and angrily voices her concern, then someone else practically calls her a nazi for it. There's a lot of judging going on here… from both sides of the morality aisle. Yikes. People need to lighten up.

    Nice penis, by the way. I love this website.
