And he helps to move them in a more positive direction to have more love for themselves and be more connected to who they are. , there's definitely going to be — I think that it's making light of it saying "sexual healing." For example, a daka worker, if there is a woman who has experienced trauma through rape or she's just never really been able to take off her clothing and feel confident, he will do a workshop with her to be more confident about her body and who she is. This is what we're doing." And I don't think he believed what I was saying because that's a pretty intense thing to say so quickly. There was definitely a time in which I was connecting with JR on a more communicative level. He and I spent a lot more connective time together on the island, and I don't think it was portrayed as much as it actually happened. And I don't remember saying that, because that wouldn't have been something that I would have said.

It sounds pretty obscure, but it's not as wild as [it sounds]. There is no intercourse that is happening within his work. We'd wake up and do meditation together in the morning; we were constantly exchanging our different viewpoints on life and spirituality and our body and our minds. It seems like the tension over who you'd choose was a little bit played up for the sake of television. And I don't know how to say it without going outside of my contract.

I'm a smaller woman and growing up I didn't have the "perfect body," and I know a lot of us struggle with this growing up. And I think that's exciting, because I think we're going to break some barriers. We're standing as two very strong, spiritual, individual people that are coming together as a representation of the balance and harmony that we need to have a little bit more of in this world. Initially I was nervous, and I think it's adorable to see myself going through this experience.

And I took this experience as a personal challenge, like, Look, I can get naked and be on television with no makeup and take the judgments that are going to come based off of what I'm doing and be OK with myself and who I am and still feel beautiful, despite what some people may think. I mean, it's going to be naked — it's a naked wedding. We all wore clothing and disrobed for the ceremony. I did wear a naked wedding dress, I guess you could say. I wore a dress that was a good representation of my spirit animal. It was more comfortable for the other dates because you slowly get used to the fact that you're nude and there's a big production going on around you. When you're talking to Alika and he says he's a sexual healer, what went through your mind? But I felt a little bit bad for him watching the episode.

I just want to go and focus on some yoga and meditation [and] self growth. What Alika and I are sharing with everyone during our ceremony is that this is a non-traditional marriage; it's more of a New Age ceremony. There's just going to be something that a lot of people haven't experienced before.

I learned a lot from the show and I'm taking a lot away from it. One of the original reasons I went on the show was as a challenge to myself to overcome some of the body image issues that I had growing up. There's going to be some confusion about what it is that we're doing. A ceremony of love — of each other, of the divine feminine and the divine masculine. I want to talk about last night's episode: When you see Greg naked for the first time — on your first naked date — you seem nervous.

What did you think of Greg talking about your "bush"? I thought it was hilarious — "you can put dreads in that thing" — I loved it. When I watched myself say that on television, I was actually kind of shocked at first, because everything is moving so fast, you're going from here to there — I was a little shocked to see myself say that, to be honest with you. I have an obnoxious question, and if you're not into it you don't have to answer: Is a daka generally better at sex than the average man?

So, yeah, the reason I'm a little shocked with the sex comment is because Alika and I — I was very curious about Alika's work, and so I inquired about experiencing it because he knows what he's doing.There’s absolutely no question it’s best to meet someone online.It’s more discreet and you’re less likely to be caught.There's different breathing techniques, massage works; he uses different essential oils; there are different meditation practices. There always need to be some good suspense on a reality TV show for people to tune in. Because on a lot of dating shows, that's glossed over, even though everyone knows it must be happening. I'll just leave it as, "I was very shocked that I saw myself saying that."So you don't think you said it?And that's very lightly skimming the top of what he's doing. Was that a conscious decision for you to go ahead and say it? I know I said it, I'm just not sure if that's the context in — I think there's more to my statement.It is an illegal action against the individual members of Ashley, as well as any freethinking people who choose to engage in fully lawful online activities.
