Love Island bosses reveal strict masturbation guidelines in villa

The cast and start date for Love Island 2019 have been revealed, and fans are revving up for the fifth series.

Kicking off on Monday, June 3, host Caroline Flack will return to the ITV reality show.

Ahead of the launch, an ITV spokesman has told Daily Star Online the answers to a series of questions which everyone is curious to know.

From masturbating, smoking, vaping, drinking alcohol and having sex in the villa, they revealed the “strict” policies they have in place.

“Strict guidelines on sexual behaviour in the villa”

On the topic of masturbating in the villa, the spokesman said there is “a strict briefing for all islanders regarding acceptable behaviour before they go in”.

They added that there are “strict guidelines on sexual behaviour in the villa” and “constant monitoring of islander behaviour once in the villa”.

In previous years, former contestants have also spoken out claiming masturbation was banned while on the show.

Former Islander Simon Searles told The Sun “everyone is uptight” as “some lads suffer after doing nothing for four weeks”.

Very unfortunate for those who don’t couple up and need a quick release. 

However, sex is not forbidden in the villa as the spokesman revealed producers will still air sex scenes this year.

He said: “The show isn’t about sex, it’s about following the couples’ journeys. 

“We only tend to show moments of intimacy when we feel it is important to the couple’s story and advances the narrative of the show.”
