(21) Comments | Posted September 5, 2013 | 4:12 PM

I used to be incredibly embarrassed by how little I had sex with my very hot, loving, totally-jacked boyfriend. At 24 years old we were lucky if we did it every other week, and even luckier if we were sober. I was just so embarrassed by my body that I...
