During the times of coronavirus when everyone is locked down inside the four walls of their house, people are resorting to newer means of entertainment and the OTT platforms have become a boon of sorts. With the television mostly telecasting re-runs of old shows there is nothing to keep oneself occupied with. And therefore, the web series and web games are becoming more and more addictive.
An all new reality web show on Netflix titled Too Hot To Handle, requires contestants to not have sex in order the win the prize money. Well, for the uninitiated, Too Hot to Handle let singletons do whatever they want to on their first night at the luxury Mexican Resort. But just a little fun, the host of the show Lana drops the bomb stating, that anyone who kisses, gropes or has sex will lose the £80,000 prize money!
Well, this was done in bid to encourage some meaningful relationships between the contestants of the show. But the Sun.co.uk reports not everyone could stick to the ‘harsh’ rule!
Well, in a conversation with some of the contestants from the show it was revealed, they couldn’t resist the temptation of going without any sexual activity for a prolonged period of time.
When asked whether it was easy or hard for her to go without sex, the report quotes Rhonda Paul as saying, “They did throw temptation in our path by taking us on dates, but I ruined a romantic date on a boat by throwing up in a champagne bucket.” She further went on to say, “Most of us tried to use the show to make deeper connections.”
The same report quotes fellow contestant, 30-year-old David Birtwistle as saying, “It’s one thing to say you can’t touch each other, it’s another thing when six beautiful women are walking around in bikinis ¬– and often thong bikinis.” Speaking of breaking the rules David Stated, He did break ‘some’ rules. “Most people want a deeper more meaningful relationship even if we don’t realise it. So, it’s been a wake-up call for us.
Another contestant on the show stated, it was really difficult for him. He has been quoted as saying, “That was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my whole life. Sex was my go-to for everything. Stressed? Sex. Difficult day? Sex.” He further stated, he tried to abide by the rules a lot. Sharron was quoted in the same report as saying “I tried really hard, I truly did. I felt like we were all so broken. We use sex to cope or to communicate or to comfort. By eliminating sex we had to find out what else we had to offer.
Another girl from the show Francesca Farago stated, it was very hard for all of them. She has been quoted in the same report as saying, “ It was hard for us, especially because we’d already kissed before they introduced the celibacy rule. So when it was ripped away we had to work out how we would continue the relationship.” Wheb probed about breaking the rules she accepted, they did break the rules. Francesca went on to say, “But we also did well on some of the challenges and proved we were gaining a deeper connection. Some of the decisions I made were out of lust and some were spiteful. I kissed a girl because we were being promiscuous. We wanted to spice things up a bit. I was exiled from the group for a while after that.
