Think everyone in Hollywood is sex-obsessed? Think again!
Some stars — like Kevin Jonas, Adriana Lima and Jessica Simpson — waited until they said “I do!” to have sex! In fact, you may be surprised to learn how many celebrities remained virgins until marriage!
Okay, so Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon both had sex before their wedding. But they didn’t have sex with each other until after they got hitched.
Mimi explained, “It’s not that we had no intimacy. We just didn’t have complete intimacy. It’s just me, and my feelings. But we both have similar beliefs and I just thought that it would be so much more special if we waited until we were married. And it was.”

Sean was labeled “The Virgin Bachelor” — though he actually had sex before his marriage, he embraced celibacy after becoming a born-again Christian.
In his own words, “I didn’t have sex in college, and, honestly, I don’t even know if I knew at that time why I took that stance. After graduating college, I moved back to Dallas, I’m dating other girls, and I started having sex. And I would feel extremely guilty afterwards but after that guilt faded, then I would start talking to some other girl and go down the same path of destruction.
“I just reached a point where I thought, ‘I know Jesus is in my heart and I know how I’m supposed to live, but for the past five or six years, I’ve just decided to ignore it, and something’s got to change.’”
