has used phone sex with all of her partners as a way to cope with

used phone sex as a way to keep things spicy and maintain their
bond." The source said.

try a Brazilian because the sex you have afterwards will keep
you coming back for more. The first time I did it after the wax
I was like, 'What's going on with my body? Oh, my God!'
