Maybe its just me, but I feel like where ever I turn everything is saturated and dripping with sex. Thats just how our society is. A lot of times, from the world of celebrity. All the hook ups, scandals, cheating, etc. America seems to be so enthralled by a good scandal. However, all celebrities don’t fit that mold. There are a lot of celebrities who have also abstained at some point. Heres a list of some of my fellow virgins (or were at some point):
JONAS BROTHERS: All of them have made the commitment to abstain til marriage. All have promise rings. Recently, the oldest, Kevin, was married and they now have their own show on E!
TIM TEBOW: Probably the most well known one at the moment. I commend his efforts to stay strong in such a difficult environment like the one hes in, and being that hott! No, but seriously- I know how hard it is, and can only imagine someone of his celebrity having to abstain.
LOLO JONES: Another current famous virgin. Although, Lolo isn’t getting flack for that right now. I still think she did amazing in the olympics and she is amazing all around. Definitely an inspiration!! Not to mention, shes beautiful! Lolo said, “There’s virgins out there and I want to let them know that it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than graduating from college has been to stay a virgin before marriage. I’ve been tempted, I’ve had plenty of opportunities.”
ADRIANA LIMA: Not sure if everyone knows this or not. Alot of people would probably assume in her profession that wasn’t the case. She reportedly said “Sex is for marriage,[Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means that they don’t want me.” And waited. She wed at 27.
JESSICA SIMPSON: I think everyone knows she waited until marriage with Nick Lachey. That gives me hope! Other than that, I am not really a fan of Jessica Simpson, just saying. Jessica once said, “Of all the things about myself, staying a virgin until my wedding night is the thing that makes me most proud.”
JORDIN SPARKS: From American Idol.”It’s hard everyday, but I made a promise to myself. Temptation is always there. It’s all about making the right choice and not putting yourself in that situation.”
TINA FEY: One of my biggest inspirations-to-date. Apparently, Tina waited til 24 to give it up. She was with her current husband (not married, but I still consider that a lot of strength!!). Tina has JOKED it wasn’t all by choice.
A.C. GREEN: Former LA Lakers star and awesome athlete. Still believes in abstinence and works with organizations even now to support it. He stayed a virgin until marriage. “I love that people remember me for that. I took a stand, and I was a voice for a generation. I’m proud of that.”
PHILIP RIVERS: San Diego Chargers quarterback. Was very open about his faith and waiting til marriage in the public eye. Which he did. Guess Tebow wasn’t the first for the NFL.
BETHANY HAMILTON: Everyone probably knows Bethany for her shark attack. And her amazing surfing skills. Bethany has also made a commitment to wait for marriage.
ZAC HANSON: I didn’t know this one! Hanson! Everyone in my generation knows this who they are. He reportedly waited as well! Guess Jonas’ weren’t the first band of brothers either.
