33:29-- “To each woman their own. I don’t judge that there is a lot of skin in our industry. But I do feel like it can contribute to the alienation of women who don’t live their lives that way. It does make them feel intimidated to go into an industry where the women are portraying themselves that way.” Liberte Austin
44:35-- “Women have started to forge their way into the industry, and they are viable players. You are here. What you do now is on you. Someone has to step up and bring it together.” John Bartolo
