Tamera Mowry

Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley says she waited until she was 29 to lose her virginity. Mowry-Housley made her revelation during a visit to Hot 97's radio station on Thursday.

"I don't know how to explain this," she said. "I'm religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity." Mowry-Housley said she lost her virginity while still dating her future husband, Adam Housley, Fox News correspondent. Tamera said she immediately regretted losing her innocence and she made Housley wait until their wedding day in 2011 to have sex again.

“You may not understand this... I did it, then I felt guilty, then I became celibate until I got married," she said.

Mowry-Housley appeared on Hot 97 alongside her 'The Real' co-hosts including Adrienne Bailon, who praised Mowry-Housley for her abstinence.

"Just because you only had sex with one person doesn't mean you're not a freak and I think that that's a good thing," Bailon, 29, said. "I think people think that you could only be a freak by doing it with a bunch of people. You can be a freak and just be a freak with one person. That is beautiful and dope."

Now 35, she married Housley, a Fox News correspondent, in 2011 after six years of dating. They welcomed their first child, son Aden, in November.

      Good going Tamera! :applause:

      I might have gone blind if I would've waited that long.

    • Dreadhead85

      I know it had to be hard for her to wait AFTER she had sex that first time. But I say Kudos to her! You don't hear people losing their virginity anywhere close to 29 anymore. My cousin is 23, still a virgin... and she keeps saying she wants to know what sex is like. I keep trying to encourage to wait... if not for marriage, but wait for the right person she is in love with, and he in love with her as well

      While I applaud her for keeping her virginity, Adam ain't drop that hammer on her the first time. Because I know not one who gets or gives once and says, not again until marriage. Guilt feelings yes, but when that puss gets hot and juicy, game over. It needs to be stuck. :coffee:

      He obviously cared about her, because most dudes would have beat it out the frame to turn her out on purpose. He had to have been easy first go round. :yes:

      Palease do not listen to you friends (peer pressure) you will know when your ready and if that's marriage then so be it. At the end of the day that choice is something you will have to live with the rest of your life :tea: When making a decision its ok to listen and get advice, but if your uneasy, not a peace with it. Do not make that jump because of what your friends say. It is okay to be a virgin and do not let anyone tell you anything different. Society will have you all fugged up. You be a leader and not a followerw .... do what best for you

    • LuvMySailor

      Jerrica I was a virgin too until I married at 27. It is worth it! I never had to worry about the drama sex brought: no STDs,no pregnancy scares. Nothing. I'm glad I waited until marriage!

    • Ms. Everything

      I honestly wish I'd waited. I moved way too fast and looking back I can only think of 2 people (and my ex husband and the other one I had a child with aren't one of them as much as I love my babies) who were worth having that part of me but you can't change the past. But I encourage everyone who's still waiting to keep waiting until they're sure that the person they're with deserves all of them.

      When my daughters get old enough to hear my story I'll be telling them the same thing
