You’ll find her straddling the line between Belgium and the Czech Republic, wearing little more than a grin. She’s not smiling because she just fooled you into believing the aforementioned countries share a border (though that was rather amusing). The Harlot’s upturned lips and dimpled cheeks merely complete the come-hither guise she’s painted on for the evening. She is filled with an insatiable thirst and she’s not leaving until its quenched. But first she must identify another whose hunger for unadulterated pleasure is as great as hers. It’s no easy feat, but the next carousel rider at her nightly carnival of the flesh shall not be disappointed. This fiery dynamo has a great deal to offer; attributes that go far beyond what’s visible at first glance.
Blonde and bubbly, she draws in those who meet her sensual criteria, exposing them to an alluring attar of straw and spring flowers. On the lips, she’s gentle and supple, flirtatious versus smothering, stimulating the senses gradually while slowly revealing her many assets. Notes of nearly-ripe citrus and garden herbs give way to essence of (could it be…why, yes it is) bubble gum minced with light peppercorn-like spice followed by a bitterness that nips at the tongue, inviting it back for more. Looked past by some and cast aside by others, The Harlot offers adventure and exhilaration to those whose fire matches her incendiary passion. Ever-fleeting, but always at the ready, she is a fixture; one you can always count on for a tryst that will leave you simultaneously satisfied yet longing for more.

You roll along, taking in scenes of uncharted territory while basking in the splendorous freedom of the open road. You have four wheels, a full tank of petrol and not a care in the world. The world is your oyster…or so you mistakenly think. In truth, this particular section of the world belongs to another—The Highwayman. He’s made the tarred narrow swath bisecting these otherwise deserted expanses his own, not by deed or contract, but by sheer force of will. Without a lawman for miles, this strategic hijacker is a self-appointed judge, jury and executioner…if it comes to that. He prefers to merely brandish his club, but the notches inflicted upon it by the skulls of those who would defy The Highwayman’s will are proof that it’s far more than a motivating prop.
You’ll know he’s in your vicinity the second you catch a whiff of barnyard mixed with horse-stable and lemon trees, but by the time you pick up on that, it’ll be too late. The Highwayman will be upon you, demanding the swift surrender of your will and worldly goods. Whether you go at The Highwayman head-on or employ evasive zigzagery, resistance is futile; he always gets what he thinks he has coming to him. And just when you think you have him pinned—he’s funky, he’s vinous, he’s fruity, he’s spicy—he pulls something new out of his bag of tricks, transforming in your very presence into something completely different. Give up, give in and you’ll reach your final destination. You’ll be a little lighter when you get there, but you’ll certainly arrive a more seasoned wayfarer.
