Actually, it just occurred to me that I get about as much enjoyment at the
spa where I work out from watching all the hot female hard bodies in action
as I do from music - perhaps more. Perhaps I should be paying them a

can enjoy the sight of them, and it was probably done at least partially for
the purpose of creating that reaction in the right man.
