Alice Little: More Than Just Sex

Alice Little: More Than Just Sex

January 13, 2021

Alice Little is a unique red-headed Irish woman that stands at just 4’8″ tall. Petite and pretty are two common ways that others use to describe her. However, that just barely scratches the surface as to who she is! Alice is a friendly, easy going lady who is passionate about the world around her. She's often told that her intellect and charm are two of her most striking features! Getting to know others and enriching their lives is extremely important, and is something she considers to be her mission in life. Alice's philosophy on her work as a luxury digital companion is that we live in a world where intimacy is no longer encouraged. We’re moving away from human connection and into a more static way of interacting with the world around us. She believes that romance isn’t dead. Instead, you just have to go out and seek it.

Alice enjoys reading, horseback riding, playing video games, and rock climbing.
