The year was 1996. I was a budding teenager, full of raging hormones and raging…musical appetites. And now I can’t be certain today’s throwback was my true sexual awakening, but it certainly had a thorough impact on this impressionable blogger.

Just know that there’s a few overt mentions of the various lingis-es one can engage in.
