Sex is no longer taboo for most of us, with images and information readily available on the internet and television for young and old alike. Movies and television shows seem to promote young people to “lose it” as soon as possible. So, these famous personalities who claim to be virgins and/or waiting for marriage to have sexual relations, seem to hearken back to an older era.
#1 Adriana Lima
Adriana Lima, the ridiculously good-looking Victoria’s Secret model, claims to have remained a virgin until she married basketball player Marko Jaric in 2009 (they have since divorced). Her Catholicism dictated her actions as evidenced by her comment that, “Sex is for after marriage…(men) have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means that they don’t want me.”
#2 Lolo Jones
Another religious Christian, Lolo Jones, the Olympic hurdler, caused a sensation when she revealed her virginity, which she planned to keep until marriage.
#3 Tim Tebow
Tim Tebow, the world-famous football player, once revealed in a press conference that he was a virgin. In a sarcastic response, the dating website AshleyMadison.com offered one million dollars to any woman who could prove that she’d had sex with Tebow.
#4 Tina Fey
Who knew?! Comedian Tina Fey, famous for her stint on Saturday Night Live and subsequent film career, remained a virgin until she met her husband at age 24. She now has two children.
#5 Jessica Simpson
When Jessica Simpson, a southern minister’s daughter, appeared in her reality show, “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica” in 2003, the world learned that she had been a virgin until marrying fellow vocal artist Nick Lachey. “Of all the things about myself,” Simpson said, “staying a virgin until my wedding night is the thing that makes me most proud…I was always told I had a body made for sin, but I was never no sinner. Nick was for real. He respected me for it. It was often him having to fend me off. Boy, it was hard, but he knew I’d hate myself and him in the morning.”
#6 The Jonas Brothers
It was part of the Jonas Brothers branding that the three young men were all supposedly waiting until marriage to lose their virginity. So far, only Kevin is married, so we either don’t believe or feel kind of bad for Nick and Joe.
#7 Serena and Venus Williams
The tennis-champion Williams sisters profess a deep Christian faith and an objection to sex before marriage. We wish them as much success in relationships as they’ve had on the court.
#8 Zac Hanson
#9 Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood gained major fame and began a successful career after winning American Idol, but remained a virgin until marrying hockey player Mike Fisher.
