Below Deck Sailing Yacht: Outrage over ‘inappropriate’ drunken sex scene

Below Deck Sailing Yacht: Outrage over 'inappropriate' drunken sex scene 2

Below Deck Sailing Yacht has caused firestorm on social media after a controversial sexual encounter between two cast members.

This week, stewardess Ashley Marti had sex with the yacht’s First Officer Gary King while he was highly intoxicated, which many viewers deemed ‘inappropriate’.

Things kicked off after the entire crew went out for a boozy dinner during their night off.

When they returned to the yacht, Ashley and Gary decided to strip down and get into the jacuzzi together.

They quickly started flirting, with Ashley giving Gary a foot massage as Chef Engineer Colin Macrae and 2nd stewardess Gabriela Barragán watched from a distance. 

‘Ashley is f***ing desperate for Gary,’ commented Colin, while Gabby added: ‘It’s a game for her. She said that with her own mouth to me.’

Things then escalated, with the pair sharing a kiss before Ashley started straddling Gary in the hot tub.

Steamy: The pair shocked their co-stars by getting steamy in a jacuzzi after a drunken night out, before heading downstairs for what was supposed to be a 'massage'

They then headed downstairs into a guest cabin, with Gary saying: ‘Well, you said you were going to massage me. That’s what I came down here for.’

‘I am massaging you,’ Ashley responded. ‘I’m just so sorry I took my shirt off … I want you to f**k me.’

Slurring his words, Gary responded: ‘Oh yeah? Go on then. Go on then.’

Although the pair weren’t on camera, the mics in the cabin picked up everything they said while a stationary camera filmed the closed door from the outside.

‘I thought I was getting a friendly massage,’ Gary said, before Ashley giggled: ‘You’re f***ing inside of me right now. We’re way past that.’

At this point, Gary expressed that he wanted the encounter to end.

‘Okay. Get it out,’ he slurred. ‘Okay we’re not having sex, we’re not having sex.’

‘It’s already in!’ Ashley replied, as a drunken Gary continued to protest, ‘no, no.’ 

'Get it out!' Once Gary realised that their pair were engaged in intercourse, he asked Ashley to end the encounter

The next scene showed a shirtless Gary stumbling out of the cabin to head back to his own bunk, which he shares with Colin and chef Marcos Spaziani.

‘I was getting a massage, and then I turned around, and she’s stark as,’ he told the boys.

‘I couldn’t help myself either,’ he continued. ‘I’m like, “I thought I came down here for a massage!”

‘She’s like, “You’re half naked.” I’m like, “I’ve got my pants on.”‘

Speaking to producers about the situation, Ashley said: ‘I went down to give him a back massage. That was the intention. And other things might have happened, but I don’t want to get into the details of it all.’

The next morning, Ashley came into Gary’s bunk and he admitted that he couldn’t recall what happened between them the previous night.

‘I don’t even remember getting back to the boat last night,’ he moaned, clearly hungover.

‘I came straight back to bed when I got back to the boat,’ he said, as Ashley burst out laughing. 

‘You don’t remember when she took you downstairs?’ asked Marcos.

Boundaries: 'Let's try not be that drunk because I want to be able to remember it and enjoy it,' Gary told Ashley the next day

Speaking to producers, who asked him directly if he ‘had sex with Ashley,’ a confused Gary responded: ‘I remember her giving me a massage and I thought we fell asleep.’

A few hours later, Gary pulled Ashley aside to discuss the incident properly. 

‘I think if this is gonna happen again, let’s try not be that drunk because I want to be able to remember it and enjoy it,’ he said.

Later that day, the crew spent their day off at a nearby private pool, where Ashley admitted to Gary that she had performed oral sex on him.

Speaking to producers, she then said: ‘I don’t understand how you can have no recollection whatsoever. Normally, everybody’s just f***ing obsessed with me!’

Gary then discussed the events of the night with Chief Stewardess Daisy Kelliher.

'We were too drunk': Gary said that he was too intoxicated to remember having sex with Ashley

‘She said today that she gave me a blowjob,’ he explained. ‘And then we f***ed and I didn’t remember because we were too drunk.

‘I was white girl wasted last night. That’s not nice. That’s not attractive at all. Who would want to have sex with me on a normal basis, let alone when I’m paralytically f***ed?’

The incident sparked outrage on social media, with many viewers feeling like there was a double standard due around gender.

'His pants came off!' Ashley discussed her night with Gary with some of her other cast members by the pool

‘If the situation was reversed with Ashley and Gary the internet would be screaming for justice,’ tweeted one viewer.

‘Imagine if Ashley said “we’re not having sex, I came for a massage…” and Gary told her “oh well, it’s already in.” We’d be calling for his head,’ said another.

‘I’m so annoyed and disgusted by Ashley’s behavior. She is completely inappropriate with Gary,’ fumed another.
