As someone who stayed a virgin until she was junior in college, I have a soft spot in my heart for any celeb who roils against the urge to get it on. For me, waiting to go all the way wasn’t about religion or fear of STDs–I just wanted it to be special..and frequent! And alas, that didn’t happen until I was 21. But no two virgins–not even famous virgins–are alike, girls.
Take a look at these 10 stars who are famous for their celibacy and tell me which one you identify with the most!
1. Jonas Brothers
A few years ago, Nick, Kevin and Joe couldn’t talk enough about their commitment to their purity rings. Kev got hitched to his long time GF (presumably without going all the way first) but girl-crazy Joe and Nick, who’s new girl Delta Goodrem is 25, have been suspiciously quite about their infamous virginity lately. Do you think they’ve given in to temptation?
2. Jessica Simpson
Back before she sold super sexy shoes and clothes, Jessica Simpson was the ultimate good girl, vowing to stay pure until she said “I Do” to long term boyfriend, Nick Lachey only to divorce him a few years later. If virginity is a gift, let’s hope she kept the receipt.
3. Lisa Kudrow
Yep, the Friends star refused to go all the way until she married her husband—when she was 32! Could you hold out that long?
4. Tim Tebow
SWOON! The straightedge, Jesus-freak football star is just as famous for his commitment to virginity as he is for kicking butt on the field. When you look at this sizzling hunk of boy, do you think his prudishness is a waste…or totally wonderful?
5. Tim Gunn
Ok fine he’s not technically still in possession of his V-card, but the fashion guru recently confessed that he hasn’t had sex in 29 years—and couldn’t be happier! Don’t you think we should give him a born-again badge? Or is it just kind of sad that he’s been so alone for so long?
6. Jordin Sparks
The newly slim American Idol star reportedly travels with her grandma to make sure that boys don’t try to get into her pants. Nobody gets past Nana!
7. Taylor Lautner
In a YouTube interview, the Twilight star revealed that he practices abstinence. Could that be the reason that his Hollywood relationships don’t last? Who should we set him up with??
8. Adriana Lima
When people find out I was a 21-year-old V, everyone says “We’re you ugly or something?” Um no I was not, thanks. And neither was Victoria’s Secret supermodel Adriana Lima, who dated Derek Jeter and Lenny Kravitz but didn’t do the deed until she married NBA star Marko Jaric…at age 27.
9. Matthew Morrison
Oh yes, Mr. Schu was pure as the driven snow until he was 21. The Glee star says that he managed to wait to lose it until he moved to Manhattan to pursue stardom…and apparently, more than a few lucky ladies.
10. Venus & Serena Williams
Unlike Jordin, these sexless sisters don’t need to tote a purity body guard. I pity the fool who tries to put the moves on these strong-willed women!
What do you think about celeb virginity? So cool or kind of preachy? Tell me in comments!
