Is brett micheals dating taya parker

What I find interesting is that heterosexual female DESIRE is usually ignored, even in media that is targeted towards women. I also notice that sex in the media is always signified by a female body.Erotica that supposedly targets both genders shows mostly women. When I saw this picture, I felt he was a very "pretty man". Baby blue eyes, long golden hair and the way his lips are pursed. I started to wonder if they replaced him with a woman in this picture, but then he has a strong nose and you can see the 5'oclock shadow starting to form. Bret chose the opposite of the “Virgin-whore” concept, a lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets.

Never, ever is the girl who most blatantly offers her sexuality the winner.What is surprising, to me at least, is that the show's finale managed to both promote and condemn female sexuality AT THE SAME TIME. Suffice it to say, the show casts Bret Michaels as an object of rock 'n' roll desire, and Taya and Mindy were the final two women competing to be his "Rock of Love" (commence eye-rolling… In order to get to know the women as best he could before making his final choice, Bret took each one of them out one last solo dinner date.Mindy, the midwestern sweetheart who Bret feared was prone to mood swings (another stereotype for your bingo card), chose to spend the night in Bret's room at the end of the date and they presumably had sex. However, the show framed Mindy as a total slut for giving it up to Bret, and in the end he chose the virtuous Taya to be the bandana to his hair extensions instead of Mindy. Leading up to the series finale, my feminist hackles were raised during Rock of Love Bus because Bret (and the contestants on the show, and the producers, and VH1, etc.) encouraged women to use their sexuality to get attention and compete with one another.He spends months telling women to act on their sexual desires and try to win his affections by being sexy (and by having sex with him), and then at the very end he decides to go for the woman who wouldn't give it up.(Again, I support Taya's decision not to sleep with Bret, just not the way it was framed by the show.I guess it all comes down to the age-old, frustrating, Madonna-Whore archetype.

Bret is a "rock star" who has supposedly been with tons of hot women and just can't get enough overt sexuality from his female counterparts.

My brother and I watched the finale together, and we were talking about how with the way the show is set up, it's almost as if 'spend the night with Bret!

' is the final "challenge" that the last two contestants have to participate in.

As soon as you give up your one valuable asset (your vagina), that's it.

That's your only card, and if you play it too soon you're screwed (both literally, which might be a good thing, and figuratively, which isn't).

Those of you who, like me, have been hooked on VH1's Rock of Love Bus this season (perhaps against some of your better feminist judgment), may have found last night's finale a bit unfulfilling.
