Examples of relaxation in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    You are the ultimate luxury. There is a great altar of love in me, you are so beautiful that you want to worship and kiss your feet, bow and bow before your divine beauty, there are powerful vibrations of love emanating from my soul, these are powerful signals of a deep obsession with love. The fire of my infinite love for you will illuminate and burn this world and hundreds of billions of worlds around me, my love is deeper than the universe itself, my whole inner world is dedicated only to you alone, all my thinking is crazy and dreams of you, everything says in me that I need only you are one among all worlds and universes. It seems to me that my penis will explode with horny, the heart will not sustain a huge amount of love, and the mind will go crazy. Thoughts about you are a cute sweet erotic of true love feelings. My heart is the soul of the soul and my male sexual organ are completely in love with you, it is useless to even try to fall in love with another, it is absolutely useless, because I only want you alone in the whole universe. The taste of your kisses is the taste of your sweet tender soul, these are kisses of higher and at the same time deep feelings. I want to thoroughly insatiably lick and kiss literally every millimeter of your body and soul. From your kiss and touch, I fly away to nirvana, it's a billion times better than sex is a taste of true love, a trillion times better than anything else in this universe. Emotions are amplified trillions of times and the heart is supposedly stopping now from a high amount of heartbeat, adrenaline of love and happiness is going through the roof. I feel nothing but love, passion, excitement and delight, only true happiness from the fact that you are with me. You are my erotic sex muse of true love, erotic relaxation music. You are a flame that caresses, but does not burn. Cold, but sweet like an ice cream you quickly conceal from caress, sweet as sugar. You are a masterpiece of confectionery, a divine dessert, too much juicy and sweet as the most expensive, precious delicacy of the highest pleasure. Seconds with you are priceless, it seems that life has not lived in vain. I would have pounced like a wild lion on you with kisses. You have the sweetest skin tone, the rarest and the most perfect one for the envy of all, so soft, tender, sensually sexy. It seems that the most beautiful and fashionable created for your image. My male sexual organ is in love only with you, he is obsessed with your beauty, he wants and loves you more and more powerful, every day he longs for you more and more and it cannot be stopped. I feel powerful to what extent you are beautiful. You are the supreme pleasure and bliss for my eyes, nerves, the heart seems to break from love, and the soul as if wants to escape from my body and have wild sex with your soul.

    It's very, very hard to know whether this meeting ... is going to have any effect on the elections and if it did, what effect it would be - whether it would help the KMT, whether it would help the DPP.

    Autonomous driving gives the car interior a totally different meaning, fun and relaxation are the new targets for those cars, while (electrification) offers us different vehicle packaging opportunities as there's no (bulky) engine or transmission.
