So there is a huge audience out there and I know Hollywood and New York like to call them the ‘fly-over’ states but there are millions of people living in those states and those people do live by standards and they do live by morals and whether they are biblical or not.

  5. Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah:

    This is the kind of impact I'm interested in having, it's always been a fear that people would think about Adventures as a site for titillation, and that wasn't my intention.

The point is women need to know they have a right to sexual pleasure.
