#310 – Is This an Orgasm I See Before Me?

Ever since listening to a recent Bert Show piece on accidental public orgasms, I’ve been on the lookout for one. I’ve paid more attention than usual to the females in my orbit, especially on bike trails and at the gym (where some of the callers said they’d experienced such wonders).
