Two Big Brother couples have sex

Apparently doing their part to help producers increase diminishing ratings, two Big Brother 9 couples had sex in the house on Valentine’s Day.

Natalie performed oral sex on Matt, and real-life couple Jen and Ryan had sex in the bathroom. Both videos have G-rated video but R-rated sex noises.

Ben Mandelker pointed out that Natalie and Matt’s interaction happened “to the romantic sounds of Adam’s sleep apnea.” And a Jokers poster notes that Matt told Natalie, “do NOT get emotionally attached to me.”

Emotionless, one-sided sex: they really have found true love thanks to the matchmaking producers.
