Crash Pad Series: A Porn Adventure

Before I had access to even one gloved fisting or Magic Wand orgasm, my relationship with the Crash Pad Series put me well within the description of fangirl: I watched the episode trailers, read the blog, followed on social media, knew the performers by heart… I even had a pin on my backpack (custom made by an awesome friend) of Dallas and Syd #crashpadcreep.
