Does The Bachelor Provide Birth Control On Set?

Fans of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" know things are getting serious on the show when it's time for the fantasy suite dates. The overnight dates typically occur when there are only three contestants left. The day portions are usually packed with adventure and fun and are followed by a romantic dinner. After dinner, the star of the show can then choose to spend a camera-free night with the remaining contestants to do whatever the pair see fit. Of course, viewers know that this is the part of the show when the star usually gets intimate with one or more of their remaining contestants, per Cosmopolitan.

Over the years, many of the shows' stars have opened up about what really goes down in the fantasy suites, including former "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman, who wrote a piece about it for Hollywood Reporter back in 2016. "Sure, most of the time there's intimacy involved. But it's not just physical, it's emotional as well. The experience is a kind of unveiling of the fantasy, in an ironic way. It's the first time you get to spend time with this person that you're dating without producers," Dorfman wrote. "The show sets the mood by offering you a very romantic suite — usually in a beautiful location with added touches like rose petals across the bed. It feels like nothing short of a honeymoon suite," she added.

Recently, ex-"Bachelorette" Tayshia Adams also weighed in on the fantasy suite dates and spilled some serious tea.

Tayshia Adams says Bachelor producers want contestants to 'be safe'

As reported by Screen Rant, Tayshia Adams recently spoke out about the fantasy suite dates during an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live." Adams, who has appeared on "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor in Paradise," is also a former "Bachelorette" who has experience with the overnight dates. During the interview, Adams was asked what happened with her current fiance Zac Clark when they were in the private, camera-free room.

"I don't think you want to know," she joked. While Adams didn't appear to want to dish out any details about her own personal experience with Clark, she did confirm that the producers of the show are focused on keeping the fantasy suite dates as safe as possible, which means supplying birth control for the couples in the event that they do choose to become intimate with one another. "They provide contraception," Adams confirmed. "They want you to be safe," she later added (via Screen Rant).

Of course, not every star of the show chooses to get intimate during their fantasy suite dates (via People). "Bachelor" Matt James admitted that he used the time to have deep conversations with his contestants. Meanwhile, Ali Fedotowsky asked producers to make an excuse for her to leave the fantasy suite room so that she could escape any intimacy with one of her contestants without making things too awkward.

Despite it all, the fantasy suite dates prove to be some of the favorite episodes for avid viewers.
