He adds, “It was not during the time I was in a relationship. It happened after we broke up.” Da’Vonne Rogers knows this was not a good move by Ray. There’s no way this will end well. Da’Vonne knows that Ray’s ex is going to swear that there were feelings between Ray and the best friend before he was single.

Ray continues, “She can’t really be mad at me cause I was single at the time and there was nothing going on during the actual relationship.” Suddenly, a woman’s screams are heard. Ray’s ex just heard everything he said. The rest of the cast knows it’s about to go down.

The conversation began with Arisce asking where is the wildest place everyone has had sex. “These types of questions make me realize I haven’t lived,” Da’Vonne admits. “The relationship that I told you guys [about] really broke me… That relationship took up from 19 to 26, so I didn’t get to experience having a wild side and being out here and doing this and exploring and having adventures.” She goes on to say that she’s only had sex with one person and it was her ex.

As for David Barta, he’s come on Ex On The Beach to “get to know myself better and accept myself more.” He opens up about his ongoing journey when it comes to his sexuality. “Big thing that’s going on or has been going on for me behind closed doors really the past year and a half or so has been my sexuality and kind of figuring out where I lie at the end of the day… I’d like to hope that there’s someone out there, whether it’s a guy or a girl, who will just love me for who I am.”
