One of the more entertaining parts of the reality dating show The Bachelorette is the fantasy suite dates. In this fantasy world, contestants get to sleep with their dates in the seven-room suite – kind of like the aliens slept with the humans on The Island. In the comments this summer, viewer comments are asking questions such as: Do you ever get to wear your clothes to bed during fantasy suites? What is the best way to keep from waking up the date? Are you allowed to open your windows during the date? And, at the end of each date, should they swap partners? The fantasy suite is just one of the secrets behind one of the most popular reality shows on television.
What Is a Fantasy Suite Date?
A fantasy suite date is when a contestant and his or her date stay at a romantic hotel and sleep on the same bed, or vice versa. If they have sex, that is a foregone conclusion, but for sexual health reasons, it is not something that many people would like to do. This is where the actual Fantasy Suite dates are set up. In it, the contestants have sex with whoever is their chosen date for that night and the next. Each date is the single love session. The next day the Bachelorette, a fictional woman, meets and meets the candidates and ultimately whittles them down to find the one person to propose to. Although this takes three days, the fantasy suite date is the only extra hookup the contestants have. This makes it the largest bonding session of the experience.
How Does the Fantasy Suite Date Work?
The fantasy suite dates are being used more and more by reality dating shows and, with good reason. This is not the first fantasy suite date that takes place. You might have heard of a roach motel on The Bachelor or a beach bungalow on The Bachelorette. Television has pioneered sexed-up reality shows where a fantasy suite is a central part of the dating process, and they are becoming common in real life.
How does a fantasy suite work?
The fantasy suite is basically a contract between the two participants. Both parties agree that they will remain adults and also agreed that nothing could be filmed. Neither party may film one another, and neither party may reveal anything he or she has done to the other person. Also, during the night they stay, the fantasy suite should not be brought in or used. According to the rules, there are rules regarding human contact. It must be a one-on-one relationship. Also, during the overnight stay, nothing sexual can be done.
Do Reality Dating Shows Have Fantasy Suites?
Not all dating shows take place in a fantasy suite. From most shows on MTV and VH1 to Hilarity for Charity on Comedy Central and Car Matchmaker on E!, there are many more reality dating shows that have a fantasy suite but don’t really make it a big part of the process. Fantasy suites tend to be used in the end, when a proposal has been made.
There is one reality dating show that has fantasy suites at all – Bachelor in Paradise. Conveniently, the fantasy suite dates are the only time the contestants do not kiss one another. The couples do not take home condoms or any other intimacy products. Nor are condoms brought along. It’s a one-sided relationship.
