Weak Men

Well it’s about damn time.  My weak organs caused my emissions to elevate a full two months ago.  (And let me tell you what, when my emissions elevate you’d better stand well clear…and maybe grow a thick beard…)  I was beginning to think that my nervous debility was a sign that my Manhood was permanently lost…  Mr. G.B.
