With that said, you'll find pretty much every type of woman available, so you can imagine how hard it was to finally choose one to go private with. Due to many users buying tokens and tipping the performers in the free room (who occasionally reward that nice behavior with things like titty flashes and masturbation), you'll find many who work exclusively in public rooms.
