Fantasy Givers read by Jennifer Farrugia Martin always stays with me. That’s the first rule. I set the limits. That’s another rule because even when the perfect little fantasy is worked out on the phone, a gentleman asks for more. No one ever touches me. I don’t break laws, it’s... Continue reading
