And by “traditional,” I mean she saved her virginity for her husband.
Tina Fey, business bombshell and diatribe dynamo, speaks out about her personal choices on a rather revealing David Letterman show.
While current controversy regarding sexual relations swirls around Letterman and his late show, it comes as an almost welcome breath of fresh air that there still are individuals in popular society that consider their sacred choice to withhold sex to be that of a moral one.
Letterman, on his show, recounted various women who had held onto their virginities past sixteen and Tina had arrived on the list, stating that she had just about topped the record and had given it up at age twenty-four to — her husband.
Fey joked that it was either “just good, Christian values, or, being homely.”
I’d have to beg the former rather than the latter, as Tina Fey, in my opinion, is one of Hollywood’s bright, sexy and down-to-earth women and there’s nothing more appealing than a good combination of those three traits.
I, myself, was raised in a Christian home and had values instilled in me that sex was to be waited for until marriage. However, and despite years of being told otherwise, I had lost my virginity at eighteen – which is still a pretty good wait, in my opinion, considering there are twelve and thirteen year-olds nowadays that treat sex as flippantly casual as a trip to grocery – to my high school sweetheart. I can hardly say that I regret doing the deed prior to sanctimonious marriage, but I do give the individuals who do commit themselves to waiting some pretty mad props.
What about you ladies and gents? At what age (unless you yet haven’t) did you give it away? Do you think that women, particularly, are stigmatized more nowadays for losing their virginities at younger ages as opposed to men?
