She said, “I assure you every muscle ached after that video.”
Continuing on about her video, the 32-year-old added, “She Wolf is the woman of our time… the woman who knows what she wants and is free of prejudice and pre-conceived notions. She defends her deepest desires with teeth and claws like a wild animal.”
