Ali went to the Fantasy Suite
with the two on the left I know The Bachelorette is a reality show, but I can't handle the reality that Ali might have had sex with two dudes in a matter of days and it was all televised. Well, not the actual sex part, but the foreplay before the real foreplay.
Seeing the curtains drawn, the lights go out, the camera lingering on the darkness of the room, maybe a flickering of a candle, and sometimes even the sound of kissing or flirtatious giggling -- it's creepy and makes me feel weird and makes me think how gross it was for Chris who had to have Roberto's sloppy seconds. And Frank would have been the third if he didn't realize he still loved his ex!
That is, if they did have sex in the Fantasy Suite.
Most people, except for those really chaste ones, have sex before they get engaged. I don't know any of those chaste people. A lot of people even do it before they should be considered people -- if people means adult. And just like I wanted to know the sex of my twins before they were born, I wanted to have sex with my husband before he was my husband. For me, it was a selling point in order for me to know if I was able to be his wife. I got married for life so I had to make sure we were good in the bedroom.
So it would make sense that Ali and Roberto, and then Ali and Chris, had sex.
And it's fine to have sex with more than one person. I did. And did. And did. And .... It's even fine to have sex with more than one person in the same week (day, even!) if you're dating more than one guy and that's what you want to do. But the difference is that The Bachelorette is on TV for the world (and parents) to see and to me ... someone who is very free and open when it comes to sex and sexuality ... something just feels wrong.
When I watched the show last night, I thought of my own daughter, who at 7 months has a long way to go before she reaches the age of 35 -- when she's allowed to have sex. But I hope she doesn't grow up to be a contestant on The Bachelorette. I won't be able to handle seeing the key to the Fantasy Suite being dangled and then her and a few different guys (on different nights) trotting off to do the deed.
Do you think Ali had sex with Roberto and Chris in the Fantasy Suite? What are your thoughts?
