You think you’ve got a bad a virginity story? Or do you just have one of those fumbling drunk ones? Well, Matthew Bennett‘s is worse than yours. Or better, if you’ve always wanted to be on television/have the moments beforehand filmed by a television network. Depends on your outlook, really.

The now-30-year-old Married At First Sight bloke dropped his V-plates on Tuesday’s episode and has opened up to 9Honey about that experience, and how he has no regrets, nope, none, this is fine.

I don’t feel that it could have happened a better way than it did,” Bennett said.

About last night… #MAFS

On the night of their honeymoon, videographer Bennett opened up to his new wife, make-up artist Lauren Huntriss, about the death of a close friend. He says that shared intimacy helped him to feel comfortable with her – comfortable enough to do the deed.

That was something that I hadn’t really spoken about much, so it was quite a big step for me to trust her enough and open up and tell her that and she was really compassionate and kind and that’s what really brought us together.

I made myself emotionally vulnerable to her in a way I’d never done to anyone else before. I feel like we reached an emotional connection, and then it sort of just got to a physical point after that, so it was definitely a huge step in our relationship. It was like, I felt like I had really emotionally connected to someone, and then we just wanted to express that physically.

He lands on the point that it felt “natural” to be with Huntriss, the overthinking part of his brain leaving him alone for once.

It definitely seemed natural. It was probably one of those times where, because I’m prone to overthinking things, it was one of those times when I didn’t overthink things. Where I let my guard down, opened up emotionally, and then one thing led to another.

We could make fun of this man, but honestly we don’t want to – this was such strangely wholesome viewing we just want him to find his forever love and do as much or as little shagging as he wants.

Godspeed Matthew, blessed virgin.
