          Love Mount. He's f**king built too. Thick and man made. You can tell he's sculpted because you can see it throughthe kit. His f**king vice grip thighs. Suffocating thighs. Rock hard thighs. Piping hot thighs. Great arms. Great abs. A stocky chest. Love the progress his body has made throughout his youth and now as a willing eager adult.
