It sounds like a great intro to a Penthouse Forum letter. The doorbell rings in the middle of the night. Confused, you make your way groggily to the front door, wondering who could be paying a visit at such a late hour. When you open the door, there is a naked woman on your doorstep. Exciting, yes?
