    said first and second outer face each having an intermediate leg engaging area proximate said medial section, each of said leg engaging areas being smoothly concave in relationship to and along said major longitudinal axis and symmetrical thereto;

    said first and second outer face each further including a pair of smooth bulges, each of said bulges proximate one of said end sections, said bulges being convex in relation to and along said longitudinal axis, said bulges being symmetrical to one another, where one of said bulges extends from said front wall to said medial section and the other said bulge extends from said rear wall to said medial section; and

    wherein said longitudinal axis defines a length of no less than that of a human thigh;
