She enjoyed a secret makeout session with Bachelor Matt Agnew on Thursday’s episode after seducing the scientist on a steamy group photo shoot.

As a ‘vocal feminist’, property analyst Abbie Chatfield has now hit back at those who ‘sl*t shamed’ her bold cocktail party rendezvous on the show.

‘I have a right to share a consensual kiss with a man I’m attracted to, to own my own sexuality and be confident and happy in myself,’ Abbie, 23, told Mamamia.

The sexual tension was palpable between Abbie and Matt during the episode, with the pair soon locking lips and angling their bodies toward one another as they shared the racy moment away from prying eyes.

Due to the intense smooching session, Brisbane-based Abbie’s bright red lipstick had completely worn off when she rejoined the other ladies at the cocktail party.

Her antics quickly angered her rivals, particularly Sogand Mohtat, 30, and began a flood of judgmental messages and comments online by the show’s fans.

‘I have a right to own my own sexuality and be confident!’ Abbie claimed she was disappointed and angered when she saw judgmental comments on social media about her kiss with Matt 

While she said there were people who supported and praises her confidence on the dating program, she told the publication: ‘there have been other comments I’ve seen on my Instagram and Facebook saying “Is she really that easy?” [and] sl*t-shaming.’

Abbie said while sexuality and attraction is important, she wanted viewers to know that she was more than just what was shown on screen.

‘People assume a woman can only be one thing; that because I was open with my sexuality and I was able to express that with Matt that I was only that one thing, that I couldn’t be intelligent and sexual and strong and funny and have any other personality traits,’ she said

‘We live in a society that begs women to be sexual objects in a very specific way and then shames us when we try to do it ourselves,’ Abbie concluded.  

Meanwhile, Abbie also told TV Week on Monday that the incident in the mansion affected her mental health and had turned to the show’s psychologist for guidance. 

She confessed she was ‘an absolute mess’ after the fallout: ‘I didn’t eat for three days. I just slept and cried. I really wasn’t well.’
