i was hoping trini would be more hornier and suggestive.her character was the only woman in a men's prison.men who haven't had the pleasures of the flesh in years.she could've had any man she wanted but never did.this was a missed opportunity for skin and sex.she could've been in the showers, naked and soap dripping between her breasts .i was hoping trini would be more hornier and suggestive.her character was the only woman in a men's prison.men who haven't had the pleasures of the flesh in years.she could've had any man she wanted but never did.this was a missed opportunity for skin and sex.she could've been in the showers, naked and soap dripping between her breasts .
