    Bruce+Jessica is absolutely right. Decades of immersion/brainwashing in the media pool has tended to shape the general perception of what a "perfect" body should look like. Well, I don't buy...

    You can't go wrong with either CTI or CSS. In my opinion, the island at CTI is generally a bit more "social" than Sunset Beach at CSS.....primarily because the pool on the island is about a third...
