Champions of Gold

 

Of the many sports around, boxing is one that manages to capture the dichotomy of aggression and elegance. A contest of strength, speed, reflexes, endurance, underpinned by sheer force of will and an unwavering commitment to training (just think of famous montage from Rocky), there’s a gritty brutality to the sport that makes it appeal to man’s primal instincts.

Sometimes it’s Good to Stray

When you were little, life was probably pretty restricted. Unless you happened to be adopted by a pack of wolves and reared as one of their own, there was probably an abundance of grown-ups telling you where you could and couldn’t go, what you could or couldn’t explore, which animals were safe and which wanted to eat you.

The Ultimate Private Party

There’s nothing wrong with being selective. You choose your clothing each day with deduction and analysis; you took your job after balancing the pros and cons; and you select who you date based on a predetermined list of attractions – after all isn’t that what instinct really is?

A Thoroughly Adult Escape
