Are bret michaels and taya parker still dating
I didn't like it, but at least it was pretty straightforward and the women were being honest about their sexual desires (even if, to me, those desires seemed misplaced).I think that's why I feel so grossed out by the insidious sexual morality tale of the finale, because the reason I've been drawn to Rock of Love Bus is that (up until now) it's been one of the few shows on television that didn't ask women to apologize for our sexuality.Now, arguably, being selected by Brett Michaels is actually the consolation prize with the real reward being able to go back to one's own life and whatever a contestant actually has going for her.But let's say for the sake of argument that winning one of these shows is an accomplishment.Bret is a "rock star" who has supposedly been with tons of hot women and just can't get enough overt sexuality from his female counterparts.
I guess it all comes down to the age-old, frustrating, Madonna-Whore archetype.
I'm a psychotherapist and when I see the women being overtly sexual to win Brett's attention, I wonder how many of them are acting out psychological disorders, were sexually abused as children, etc. I don't see this as a show that celebrates or even demonstrates healthy feminist sexuality, but rather exploits women with low self-esteem to appeal to our train wreck mentality.
Ironically, the only redeeming feature of these dating reality shows is, I think, the realistic portrayal of who is eventually selected.
(You thought they had already broken all of the available ground and then some, didn't you?
) This season of Rock of Love Bus kicked off with some vagina shots on top of a bar, so it shouldn't surprise us that it ended with some sex and gender weirdness as well. I will spare those of you non-fans the details of the show's premise and what happened prior to the finale, but if you are so inclined you can find most of that info here.
