I like ďA Little LostĒ because itís all about kissing. I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I canít stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because thereís no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you canít stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I canít get anything done because Iím so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But itís absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.
