I saw a movie where someone needed to drop 2lbs before their meet so his girlfriend suggested sex.
Does this really help?
Let us find out.
I explained to my man what I wanted to challenge and so, I stepped up on the scale to see what I weighed. UGHH and then I took action with a little friskiness. After an hour or so because I figured it would take more than 15 mins.
