It is 2017, and many people don’t believe in saying no to sex until marriage anymore, but not these women!
Nigerian –American actress, Yvonne Orji is a woman who does not believe in pre-marital sex and not shy to speak openly about what she believes. Recently, she gave a speech on “The wait is sexy,” at a TEDx Talk, she said “A lot of people think the wait is actually keeping me from my prince charming. For me at 33, the wait is powerful, discipline, its focus and keeps the main thing the main thing.”
Popularly known as Toyo Baby in Jenifa’s Diary, Juliana has always been vocal about her stance on pre-marital sex. Infact, she is a member of Mine ministry, a christian organization that advocates sexual purity.
She was once quoted saying,
“God told me some years back when I never thought I will be an actress or be on TV, that he would open a door for me in the entertainment world and that when he does, I should talk about sexual purity, the message is simply this-being a virgin is not ‘old school’, it is actually trending!
I have a call and I have pledged with all my life, with God’s help that I will not stop being an advocate of purity no matter the opposition. Virginity and sexual purity must not and will not be history.”
Nigerian singer, Jodie was also very open about sexual purity before she got married in 2015
She said in an interview some years ago,
The question of sex and virginity is a private one…. Forget the media hype and paparazzi: if people would truthfully bare their inner thoughts, no one wants to stay with someone who is “the national cake”.
Keep your privates to yourself and your wedded partner. Forget all that “new age” or “modern” talk on sex and virginity. It may look “cool” to be a sexually loose person on television or magazines, but in real life, people actually respect those who have self control. If the whole world says virginity is archaic, would you want your daughter/son to “go with the flow?”
Nigerian singer, Adokiye has always maintained that she is still a virgin. She made headlines when she offered her virginity to Boko Haram in exchange of the Chibok abducted girls.
Although, many people don’t believe her, she maintains that she will only give it to the right person.
She once said,
A lot of people are tagging me gay. I don’t blame them. It’s not easy to find a beautiful girl who’s still a virgin, especially in this tough period. The truth is, I love men, I adore them, I cherish them and got so much respect for them but my problem is, I haven’t found that somebody yet, to give my body and heart to. It doesn’t mean I am a lesbian or gay or what not.
