Hot Crazy Mess – official website of girls with daddy issues! Adults only 

Hot Crazy Mess – daddy issues. You can’t express them enough in writing – this is why series like Hot Crazy Mess had to be created. The world of today’s girls. They are so confused about things they like. In this case, they wrongly (or not?) choose to have sexual relations only with older men – seducing them. Stepdads, their moms’ partners, teachers – all these men they meet in daily life. It all sounds like a great time, but in the end… it ends up being a BIG mess 🙂 Browse all videos here.

French Authors

France is a land of mysteries, intrigue, fun and paradox.


Voltaire is arguably one of the most controversial and best French literary authors. Most of his writings evoked mixed emotions due to their critical nature. Born as Francois Marie Arouet, on November 21, 1694 in Paris, Voltaire enjoyed middle class up bringing since his father was a notary. When Voltaire was seven years, he lost his mother, which turned him into a rebel towards his father and siblings. He found refuge with his free-thinker godfather Abbe Chateauneuf.

Albert Camus

Born on November 7, 1913, Camus was a French Algerian national. He was born before the beginning of the First World War. His parents Lucien Auguste Camus and Catherine Hélène Sintés were semi-proletariat. His father died when he was still an infant and he grew up with his grandmother in the suburbs of Algiers. He attended his early education at the local EcoleCommunale, where one of the teachers spotted him and told the grandmother to allow young Camus to study.
