Blake Moynes made a huge impression on Katie Thurston when he crashed her season. Now, he’s in the final four and hoping he and Katie fall in love. In Monday night’s episode, Blake did a painting that was censored by ABC. Many believe the painting was about two people being intimate. He’s always seemed very sex-positive just like Katie. He’s not afraid to talk about it and fans expect nothing less from this big teddy bear. Now, his mom Emily Moynes is also speaking out about her entire family’s outlook on being sex-positive.
Emily Moynes explained her family’s positive outlook
Emily appeared in an interview this week with Dave Neal. During the interview, she addressed a lot including her family being positive about intimacy. Emily said they don’t talk about it all the time but her family does not shy away from it either. She said there’s a big difference between “s*x positivity and s*x promiscuity.” She’s always encouraged her children to run to her not from her with their problems and that includes talking about intimacy.
Emily discussed Blake’s time on Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley’s season. She noted the clay sculpture Blake made which was a huge sexual organ. However, she said what they didn’t show was the heart underneath his sculpture. What he was trying to say was that he wants great intimacy but also love. Blake was looking for a special connection and trying to depict he’s ready to settle down.
She gets upset at times when people judge Blake for being sex-positive. Emily believes it’s natural and shouldn’t be so taboo to talk about. She also noted she’s always trusted her children’s decisions even in their teenage years when they began dating.
How does she feel about Blake joining The Bachelorette?
Emily has been very supportive of Blake joining The Bachelorette. She said when it comes to all her kids she encourages them to have life experiences, create memories and if an opportunity presents itself then go for it.
Emily also noted she’s been a huge Bachelor fan since the series began. So, she believes the process can work. She named off all the successful couples and was excited for Blake to go on the show.
Now that her son has made it to the final four, this means Emily will get to meet Katie. What will she think? Will Katie fit right in?
