Laurina explained that condoms were available in every room at the resort for contestants looking to get frisky.

She also said that, as a result of a sexual misconduct scandal during the US version last year, ‘strict’ rules had been put in place for the Australian production.

‘There was some really strict guidelines around anyone getting intimate,’ Laurina revealed. ‘(Contestants) had to go and flag it with production.’

Laurina told the breakfast program that both parties had to give their consent in front of Bachelor In Paradise staff.

‘And if anybody was caught frolicking intimately then production had the right to burst in the door and say “Are you consenting? Are you consenting?”‘

Furthermore, the contestants also had to undergo a mandatory STD check before production began.

‘That’s pretty standard,’ Laurina said.

‘Every reality show that I’ve done you’ve got to do full bloods and urines and all that just in case. Say, with I’m A Celebrity, in case you cut yourself,’ she added.
