We-Vibe Wish Review

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it — I’m kind of over app-compatible vibrators.

This is the case with the We-Vibe Wish…

Because my job is so unusual, I tend to get a lot of questions about it, both from people who watch my videos and read my blog and from people I meet in my day-to-day life…
