The Story of the Gorgeous Librarian

powder box girls gorgeous librarian story

The story of Delia, the Gorgeous Librarian.

This the Gorgeous Librarian, but her name is Delia, she suffers from severe memory loss. Her daytime job as a librarian can be done easily; she just looks up everything she needs to know, again and again. Her speciality at night is bondage. This gorgeous librarian likes to experiment with plastic elastics, the ones she gets from the mailman. Delia thinks it’s a more friendly way to tie people down; that is not the case of course. She knows that, but she forgets. It’s never a valuable lesson for Delia when one of her clients turns blue, but they keep coming back for more.

The Story of Sella the Stripper Pole Dancer

This is Sella, a.k.a. ‘La Giraffa’ she is a fashion model by day. At night Sella works as a striptease dancer, specialized in spinning the dancing pole. From the day she was born she was most known for her remarkable legs; they were sooooo long that they earned her the nickname ‘La Giraffa”. Her mother always needed to add 25 cm of fabric lenght to her clothes so they would fit properly. Sella’s mom did so until the girl was 12 years of age, then she grew tired of it and Sella only wore mini-skirts and 3/4 pants by then. Needless to say; bare legs are a normal thing for Sella, and she has no problems flaunting them at all.
