“I love it when I’m called and told I have 15 minutes to get to someplace where I’ll be greeted at the door with a surprise—maybe lingerie, nakedness. I like to ravish and be ravished … I like lots of foreplay and stamina, fun, discretion, oral, even willingness to experiment—*smile*”
After the warning given by the hackers, Avid Life Media had continued the site citing reasons that it had enhanced security ensuring privacy of members. However, the members are now left in a lurch.
