Celebrities who waited until marriage to have sex (list 2)

Remember my last post on this topic:

Celebrities who waited until marriage to have sex

Because the church does a hideous job of providing encouragement, support, and examples of celibacy and virginity to Christians over 25/ 30 years old, here’s another list of secular examples you may find encouraging (though a few on this list might be Christians):

Celebrity Virgins: Stars Who Spoke Publicly About Being A Virgin

Adriana Lima
Victoria Secret model Adriana Lima was often dubbed the “world’s sexiest virgin.” She had no problem strutting her stuff in bikinis and lingerie, but decided she wasn’t having sex until after she was married.

“Sex is for after marriage. [Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me. When we’re traveling together for the first time, we sleep in different rooms. That’s the number one thing,” she told GQ in 2008.

  1. I’ve always wondered about the intentions of celebrity virgins. Are they “coming out” because they are genuinely concerned about the young people or are they using it as part of their marketing strategy? And why do they all seem to be . . . athletetes? And if they are so bold as to say they want to be a role model, like Tebo, that really makes me question their motives. It seems to me like a real model wouldn’t necessarily . . . know they were a role model. And be humble about it.

    1. I do think some of them use it as a publicity ploy, such as singer Britney Spears.

      Even if their motives are not sincere, at least the topic is being discussed in public. Our culture (secular and Christian) is so sex-obsessed that, IMO, even if these celebrities are not 100% sincere, at least they are bringing attention to the issues of virginity / celibacy, which may make it seem like an option for some people.
