‘Love Island’s Amber Davies Rinsed For Saying Women Shouldn’t Have Casual Sex

‘Love Island’s Amber Davies Rinsed For Saying Women Shouldn’t Have Casual Sex

Millions of people tuned into Love Island last year, a show that's centred around throwing absolute strangers together and making them 'couple up', as they attempt to win over the hearts and minds of the UK.

Naturally there is some sex.



Whether it happened on the first night or after a bit of small talk, nearly all the contestants shagged in Casa Amore during the show's most recent series.

So it might surprise you to hear that the winner of the show, Amber Davies, reckons that women around the world should close their legs until after a couple of dates, at least. The TV personality has revealed her five rules of casual sex via BBC Radio 5 Live.

In a video uploaded to the radio station's Twitter account, Davies says: "Rule number one is no sex on the first date. If you don't know the person, don't have sex with the person, it's all about self-respect."


Her second rule is to question whether you want to go ahead with sex if you've been drinking because you might regret it in the morning. The third thing to abide by is not to treat the bedroom as a way to impress your partner, because you should try to do that in other ways.

The fourth rule is binning the idea of 'no strings attached' or 'friends with benefits' because 'us females get emotionally attached'. The female population is presumably elated to have elected Davies to speak on behalf of every single woman on how they feel about sex.

Finally, the fifth decree is to not give into peer pressure over casual sex and 'stand up for yourself' if you don't want to do it.

While some of this could be considered useful advice, other people on social media have found it horrendously outdated and reckon it borders on slut-shaming.

Most of the clapbacks to the video centre on the idea that if the two parties (or more) involved in the romp session are consenting then there's no issue.

One person wrote: "I don't like how she's implying that you don't respect yourself if you want to have casual sex."

The message harks back to the oft-mentioned double standard between men and women in relation to shagging. If blokes get around with plenty of women, he's usually considered a 'hero', but when a woman does it, she's a 'slut'.


It's 2018, everyone should be having as much safe, consensual sex as they want. If you don't want any and want to wait until marriage, go for it. If you want a different partner every weekend and everyone involved is comfortable with that, then why not?
