‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars’ Recap: Jade Roper Complains That Sex With Husband Tanner Tolbert ‘Gets Old’

Truth or Dare can be a dangerous game — especially if you happen to be on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. On the Friday, November 11, episode of the relationship show, the couples had to face their sexual desires and fears through a series of games that began with answering tough questions in front of the group, and ended with acting out sexual escapades using puppets. (Yes: puppets.)

Margeaux Wants a Husband and a Wife

During Truth or Dare, Margeaux insisted she had never faked an orgasm with her husband Nikko because he had a really big … umm, let’s just say because he has good equipment. Merika didn’t like hearing that very much, but things were only to get tougher for her from there. Later, as the threesome hung out in the kitchen, Margeaux said she didn’t get what the big deal was.

“I don’t understand why I can’t have a husband and a wife,” she admitted, adding that Merika and Nikko “could work together.” Neither of them seemed too crazy about that idea.

Later, during the puppet exercise, Margeaux and Nikko were asked to act out the best sex they ever had. Naturally, Merika stormed out. That was hardly the height of the drama, however, because Keke Wyatt kept interrupting the exercise to complain that she had to pee. One thing led to another, and she and Margeaux were in a massive fight, screaming at each other. (For some reason, those two really did not get along.)

Amber Blames Herself for Her Sex Issues With Jim

Next up were Jim and Amber Marchese. The former Real Housewives of New Jersey stars conceded that they had some issues in the bedroom, citing their fight that took place at 3 a.m. the night before. Amber took the blame (as usual), saying it was her fault because she is “not as sexual as he is.” She said she needs to figure out how to let her guard down. Jim jumped on that train and complained that Amber had not once, in 10 years, initiated sex.

Later, when Jim was complaining about how Amber had rushed him through sex the night before, Amber revealed that part of the reason she wanted it to be over was that he had used facial cream to lubricate her (down there), and she was burning.

She also added that she didn’t ever want to make eye contact during sex because it made her uncomfortable, and later admitted that this was probably due to her very first sexual encounter at age 16, which was pretty much date rape the way she described it. Through tears, Amber admitted she was “pretty passed out” when she’d lost her virginity, and was “mad” at herself for letting it happen. “I don’t think I’ve talked about this with Jim,” she mused. (Something tells Us that conversation will happen soon.)

Jade Reports That Tanner Is a Selfish Lover

OK, she didn’t use those words exactly, but she did say that Tanner Tolbert “never” gives her oral sex. “I have to beg,” she added. Tanner himself admitted that he’s done that for his wife “very rarely,” and then recounted a time he had sex on the 50-yard-line of a football stadium — with another woman. Jade Roper didn’t like that so much.

“It’s something you do when you’re younger,” he said when he realized Jade was angry. “I don’t think so,” she snapped back. Jade was convinced that Tanner just wanted to brag about having sex on the football field, and commented that maybe she should have said all of the fun places she had had sex with other men. Hmm … maybe not.

Jade Reports That She and Tanner Have “Tired” Sex

Later, during the puppet exercise, Jade lamented that her sex life with her husband was boring. “I think we have a lot of tired sex,” she sighed. “It gets old. I would like you to have a little more oomph in bed.”

Tanner revealed that he would like to be handcuffed, and Jade then admitted that she sometimes “withheld” oral sex from him since he withheld it from her. They both promised to try to do better, and the world made sense again.
