Sultry baby
Not quite exposed
But just

Sexy beauty
Not quite seen
But a blast

Sensuous lady
Peeking through
Must you hide?

Desirable  plaything
Not creating a scene
Innocently alluring

Sensational being
Clever in feigning
Success in the offing

  2. Just enough held back to make you want more

  3. Hmmm! Sultry Baby. Sexy Beauty, Sensuous lady . . . Say what kind of interesting things have you been up to lately? Details please! And don't be too elusive.

  4. I love how this goes round and round..Alluring...
