A place where, in fact, the entire population remains largely skittish on the subject of sex in general.
And nobody in corporate bothered to double-check the work.
That's what I think. (the Amazon form reply was signed by Gajalakshmi S.)"
I stand by that theory. I think it was nothing more than the finance department trumping the editorial staff.
It's worse than a global conspiracy.
It's capitalism run amok. As usual.
