Sean Lowe: Being called "the virgin Bachelor" bothered me, I'm going to perform masterfully

Sean Lowe admits being labeled "the virgin Bachelor" for so long has bugged him.
"Well, it's bothered me a little bit just because of the perspective that people take, the tabloids in particular. They just want to make me seem like I'm weird, or, 'Why would he take such a radical stance?' And what I want people to know is that's just a small part of my faith, but people want to focus all their attention on that one aspect," Lowe told Chris Harrison during The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine's Wedding special Sunday night.
"I think, in the beginning, it was a little bit more overwhelming than it is now," Giudici said of the public's reaction to Lowe's desire to wait until marriage to have sex.
"But I'm happy. I mean, to be honest, it doesn't affect me at all... We're going to be husband and wife, so we're going to be doing husband and wife things."
"There's no pressure on my end. I'm going to perform masterfully," Lowe joked.
"Oh, okay!" Giudici laughed. "I'm a very patient woman. I think everybody can attest to that."
Prior to their wedding, the seventeenth-season The Bachelor star picked out multiple lingerie ensembles from a store to give to his bride-to-be as a gift. He mainly shopped in the "naughty section" and expressed to the saleswoman he had no idea what he was looking for.
When Giudici eventually opened the gift, she got very giddy and excited.
"I'm not going to be wearing anything the whole honeymoon, so I don't know why you bought this," Giudici joked.
"I cannot wait to wear the lingerie he gave me on our wedding night. It's like fancy icing for my body and I'm just going to be able to showcase it when I'm his wife. As a wife, I will definitely treat him a lot. I'm going to be able to let out my 'grown-sexy' on him at any time that I want and any time that he wants."
As a wedding gift, Giudici hired a photographer to take some boudoir photos of herself in the different sets of lingerie.
"They're like sexy photos that are in lingerie and obviously just for the husband's eyes only. I want him to see me as a woman after the wedding, which of course he will naturally, but I've been kind of suppressing that. So I'll feel like a butterfly or something, like I'm waiting to be exposed to him," Giudici told the cameras.
"So it's kind of cool to be able to do something and give it to him as a wedding gift to start our relationship in that manner. It's like a symbol of me being his now, because no one will ever get that but him. When he sees these, he'll be my husband and that will be exciting... It's something I'm being vulnerable with... I want these photos to be super sexy for Sean."
Giudici's bridesmaid Corina helped her get ready for the photo shoot and calmed her nerves.
"When Sean sees these photos, I think he's going to be like, 'Holy crap!'" Corina told the cameras. "Because I don't think he's ever seen Catherine that way, and so for her to do this, it's going to be pretty awesome. She's going to look super, super hot and Sean is probably going to die."
