“Games are all about taking risks.”
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
1 Peter 2:9 NIV
At Liberty University Jerry Falwell Jr and Becki used to walk around campus and play a game called, “Would You Rather.” It was a sex game, or fantasy where the Falwell’s would imagine which students men and women and what it would be like to have sex with them. Becki confided this game into a Liberty University student whom she performed a blow job on years ago. Here is how Politico writes about it.
“Her and Jerry would eye people down on campus,” the former student, who was 22 when Becki performed oral sex on him and is now 32, said. “She didn’t go into specifics, but said, ‘Oh, me and Jerry play games all the time, like “Would you rather?” with people on campus.’ I’ll never forget that.”
A close friend and neighbor of the Falwells told POLITICO that Becki confided to her about the relationship with the student. When the friend warned that Jerry would be upset to hear about it, the friend said, Becki told her that the only thing Jerry would be upset about was that he didn’t have a chance to watch her have sex with the student.
