    If you ever gone surfing, diving, or even swimming in the ocean, you may have worn a wetsuit before?

    Thanks for the vid and info but please work on your speaking style – it seems very affected and is quite uncomfortable/annoying to listen to. Listen to how normal people speak and just copy that style and sound. Just speak like a normal person, you don't need to over-animate your speech style just because you are in a video.

    The thumbnail looks like a tooth.

  22. 4Dmike says

    hair also creates a lot of drag in the water. I doubt we'll be seeing too many fur covered wet suits.

  23. Count chocula says

    Olivia is miserable. She needs a man to fuck her before she hosts the next one.
