Dirty Animal Orgy

Growing up as a youngest child can be…difficult. My older sister has 4 years on me and my brother 6 years. This provided me with a lot of teasing and torture growing up that was an endless source of comedy for the rest of the family. I hate being embarassed, so this added more fuel to the fire. I still lock the bathroom door whenever I go inside for fear that my brother is going to storm in and throw a bucket of ice water into the shower while I am in there. But with all of that trauma comes inspiration.
