I get it, I really do. When you wanna have a steamy makeout sesh, but don’t have the proper furniture, you have to make do. However, an Ottoman might not be the best choice.

As the old saying goes, “A gentleman always provides a lady with a pillow before he mushes her face into a table with his kisses.”
