A woman has sparked debate by saying she wouldn’t have sex with someone unless they showered beforehand.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, blogger Carla Bellucci revealed that she no longer feels comfortable skipping this step after the recent breakout of bed bugs.
With Europe’s public transport still crawling with them, it seems the little critters may also be coming for our love lives too. Take a look below:
“I don’t want anything smelling – feet, breath, anything,” the blogger stated, adding: “For me, it has to be clean; if not, I get the ick.”
Don’t think that Bellucci is exempt either, with her also revealing that she would want to shower due to the risk of bed bugs.
“Even if I had to sit in the sink, I would do it,” she complained. “Just freshen up. I would be uncomfortable otherwise.”
Though the rest of Europe might be freaking out over the creepy crawlies, journalist Ellie Phillips wasn’t so keen to delay getting frisky.
“Because for me, if I’m going on a date night with my husband, we go out for dinner, we go to the theatre, we come home, and we want to have a bit of fun time,” the presenter argued, saying: “We’re just going to let it happen – we’re going to go with it.”
She also pointed out that most of us would expect a certain level of cleanliness from a partner, in order to even get to the bedroom.
“I think if I had to tell someone to go and have a shower, I’d be concerned about their general personal hygiene,” joked the presenter.
“Because I think if you’re going to sleep with someone and you’re worried about where they’ve been, then maybe you shouldn’t be sleeping with them.”
Unsurprisingly, the segment has sparked serious debate online after a clip was uploaded to YouTube.
“Totally agree! The thought of being intimate with anyone solely depends on if you're clean wherever,” argued one soap-obsessed user, claiming that people should have a quick 2-minute clean-up before doing the deed.
Another agreed, claiming it was the key to a, um, good time: “Doing it after you've both showered is guaranteed magic, each and every time.”
However, a third wasn’t so convinced adding: “Why is this even a question? Lol.”
And we though trying to date during the pandemic was bad!
