The Bachelorette's Mike Planeta Talks About Being a Virgin, Reveals What He's Done Sexually So Far

Mike Planeta, one of the contestants on Katie Thurston‘s current season of The Bachelorette, is opening up about his sex life.

The 31-year-old gym owner from Arizona came in sixth place this season and he made headlines at the beginning when he revealed that he’s a virgin.

Mike recently appeared on the Talking It Out podcast with hosts Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo. On the podcast, he opened up about what he’s done sexually so far.

“I am not some perfect little, like, you know, golden boy. Dude, I am a very flawed human being. Like, I am extremely flawed,” Mike said while discussing his decision to wait until marriage to have sex.

“And I’ve said this, I’ve talked with Katie about this. I’m very open about this. I may not have had, like, sex, sex, but I’ve slipped up and I’ve had oral sex,” he added (via Page Six). “For me, that was one of the moments where, like, the two times I did slip up and do those things, those were things that taught me actually the significance of why I actually was putting sex on such a pedestal.”

Mike also said he identified as an “extremely sexual” person, despite being a virgin.

“I know this is a really weird thing to say because I’m waiting ’til marriage. Like, I’m an extremely sexual dude. It’s just, I have to kind of confine that in ways, like, for me until I get married, until it’s, like, in the right context,” he added. “When people think of somebody waiting, right, they think like, [they’re a] prude or they’re not interested in sex or they don’t want to have these things. No, like, I have all these urges, probably times 10, right? These are urges that I, like, fight every single day, but it’s not about me.”
