Ashley Iaconetti: "I will never, ever, say" if I'm still a virgin since dating 'The Bachelor Winter Games' bachelor Kevin Wendt

Ashley Iaconetti has openly discussed her virginity for years on and off-camera, but now, she's all of a sudden done talking about it.
Ashley's fourth time on a Bachelor spinoff was the charm, as she hit it off with Canadian bachelor Kevin Wendt onThe Bachelor Winter Games.
The couple have been portrayed on the show as being "hot and heavy," with plenty of makeout sessions, and previews for Thursday night's finale show that they are going to enjoy a Fantasy Suite date.
"I know what everybody's million dollar question is -- have we or have we not? -- but I will never, ever, say yes or no to that question," Ashley, 29, toldUs Weekly at the taping for the series' reunion special, The Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All, which will air immediately after the two-hour finale on February 22.
"Just because I've been public about it in the past, doesn't mean that I can't make something private once somebody else is associated in that topic of my life."
The Fantasy Suite for Ashley and the 33-year-old Toronto firefighter reportedly just consisted of making out, eating cheeseburgers and drinking champagne.
"People associate [the Fantasy Suite] with sex every time, because you're finally alone for the first time... It was just important to be alone and get to know each other better," Kevin explained to the magazine.
"Our sex life -- or however we are now -- has nothing to do with any coverage and I just wanted the Fantasy Suite to be about me and her finally getting alone and having some alone time to talk and have fun together."
As shown in Tuesday night's episode of Winter Games, Kevin respected the fact Ashley was a virgin, and the disclosure certainly didn't turn him off.
Kevin admitted on the show that sex is one of the most important things in a relationship to him, but at the same time, he appreciated the fact Ashley was waiting for the right time and the right guy to lose her virginity. He did, however, seem a little relieved she wasn't necessarily waiting for marriage.
Ashley and Kevin will dish on the current status of their relationship on the World Tells All special, but they are apparently still together and thriving to the this day.
The pair "haven't said the L-word yet," according to Us, but they're making a long-distance relationship work by "FaceTiming at least once a day."
"The key is breaking the rules," Kevin revealed. "You're not supposed to see each other. We just break the rules and fly to each other. That's the secret."
The sneaky lovebirds have even reportedly discussed the possibility of relocating to make their romance work long-term. Kevin is apparently considering a move from Canada to Los Angeles, CA, where Ashley currently resides.
"He's eyeballing those [fire] stations down by the beach," Ashley gushed. "He saw the Malibu one. He's like, 'Wait, that's a nice place!'"
Ashley's virginity has been a topic of conversation ever since her first appearance onThe Bachelor in 2015 when she competed for Chris Soules' heart.
On Bachelor in Paradise 2, she fell hard for Jared Haibon, and before spending a night together behind closed doors, she teased in a confessional that she may be up for having sex.
Although the editing of Paradise suggested at the time Ashley did give up her "V-card," she tweeted after the episode aired, "You say CRAZY things during a 2AM interview... I would never loose my virginity outside the bounds of MUTUAL love & commitment."
Ashley then looked for love again on Bachelor in Paradise's third edition but came up short. As for Kevin, he first found fame by winning the heart of The Bachelorette Canada's first-season star, Jasmine Lorimer, but they broke up shortly after getting engaged.
