A former contestant on “The Bachelorette” admitted that she has been with more than 700 men, but she claims she is not ashamed of her past sex addiction.
Belinda “Love” Rygier, from the Australian version of The Bachelor, confessed that while she was alone and looking for love, she would go out as many as six nights per week.
Belinda, who is 38 years old and a radio presenter, said, “I didn’t realise I had the condition until I healed it.”
The television celebrity has been celibate for the past 15 months, and she attributes her decision to the fact that she cannot develop good relationships on her own.
Continued Belinda: “When I recovered, I assumed that some unresolved pain from my past was the cause of my sex addiction. This was my belief when I was first sober.”
You wouldn’t know it by looking at me, but even though it dominated my life, I was also a functioning addict, and I have a successful career.
Belinda claimed that she could not recall the exact number of men with whom she had slept but stated that the figure was “over 700.”
Belinda, who emerged from The Bachelor Australia in 2017 with a large number of sexual partners, claims that she is “not ashamed” of her sexual history.
Belinda’s addiction to meeting men reached its height before the advent of dating apps when she would go out to bars and clubs six nights a week.
Conversely, Belinda is determined to delay her “strong sex urge” until she is in a committed relationship with someone before claiming that she “still has a high sex drive.”
She continued by saying, “Men were extremely good at giving me what I want to hear, and more than having the sex, it was about feeling beautiful and validated and loved.”
