Young girls love it because they all want to be us. Gay men love it because they all want to be us. Grandmas love it because it´s not "too" dirty. Couples love it because it´s interactive. Feminists love it because we´re not self deprecating and Scientologists love it because were not on medication. (at least not while performing)
