This is the question we have been asking for years! Are Bachelor/Bachelorette Fantasy Suites equipped with tools for safe sex — aka condoms?
Yes! They are! according to host Chris Harrison in the Huffington Post. Producers equip the Fantasy Suites with “all the tools necessary”. The suites are stocked with “anything you need to have safe sex” .
“I think [the contestants] have all the tools necessary. I mean, if you need more than that the first time you’re together, it’s probably not that great, right? You should be able to have fun at least the first time before you bring circus animals or whatever else you want in there.”
This is interesting in light of Courtney Robertson’s tell-all book, I Didn’t Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain, which I do own by the way, because in the book Courtney claims producers left her and Ben condom-less in their Fantasy Suite cottage.
‘Ten minutes after we were in the cottage, the camera crews, handlers, and producers scrammed, and we were completely alone for the first time ever,’ Robertson writes …..
‘We immediately ripped each other’s clothes off and had intense, passionate sex on the couch in front of the fire. Producers had left a cell phone for use in case of emergency, but they did not leave us any condoms.’
Maybe they have made the correction since the 2012 season.
Chris Harrison claimed in response to being asked if the suite contained “a drawer of condoms.”
“[It's] always safe, yes. Anything you need to have safe sex, we definitely promote that,” saying that “other than that, I think [the contestants] have all the tools necessary.”
“I mean, if you need more than that the first time you’re together, it’s probably not that great, right?” he posited. “You should be able to have fun at least the first time before you bring circus animals or whatever else you want in there.”
Wow! Now that is a situation!
