    I don’t know who most of these people are (without their names listed), but good for them for standing for something they care about.

    ”No, I’m saving myself. Because I have to make myself worthy of the kind of man I have in mind.”

    Cool story. But I think you can be worthy of a good partner even if chose to have sex with a couple of previous ones.

      ‘the man i have in mind’

        Not really. I believe you can still be worthy of the man you have in mind if you choose to have sex. There is no “losing” in having sex for the first time, if it was something you wanted to do. It doesn’t lessen anyone to have sex. This idea that you’ve lost them and there’s shame in doing what you choose to with your body, that’s all nonsense.

          I think it’s a safer bet to wait for marriage, considering a lot of people (not just women) end up regretting losing their virginity to someone they eventually fell out of love with (if they loved each other at all). Not saying it happens all the time, but it is common. If you wait for marriage, you know that this person loves you for you and that you love them just the same, or at least you have a valid reason to think as such.
          Just because it was something you wanted to do in that moment doesn’t mean it was worth it.
          If there’s no losing in engaging in premarital sex, then that holds true even more so for saving yourself. Then the connection between you and your spouse is that much stronger, since you have a bond that begged (more or less) for marriage in the first place.
          Then again, that is just my opinion on the matter.

    Did Zac really? I didn’t realize that. Also that is a hot pic of him.

      Actually, nobody knows if he was serious. But it’s a possibility.

    I’d like to ask what business this is of ours? It’s their sex lives and their sexuality – just because they have talents such as singing or athletics doesn’t make their decision any more our business than if you posted up a list of strangers who had taken the same view on sex. Such posts, in my opinion, only perpetuate the hype around virginity that many people are rejecting nowadays and the only good I can see of this post would be supporting those who would like to make the same decision – in which case, I would suggest perhaps adding such a tone to the article rather than apparently celebrating these ‘celebrities’ who have decided to wait to have sex until they’re married.

      because it’s a lot harder for celebrities c:

    All of the Hanson brothers supposedly did save themselves

      Only Zac Hanson waited to have sex after marriage. Taylor got her girl pregnant before getting married to her.

    You know that all of those people have PR agents telling them what to say to the press right?

    And sorry for the dark view but with 1 of 2 marriages ending in divorce saying you’ll stay a virgin until marriage doesn’t have much of a value. Truth is, it’s really likely that even if they wait till marriage, those people will not lose their virginity to the person they’ll stay with for the rest of their lives.

    At the end sex is nothing but a human urge, people should lose their virginity when they are ready, with someone who respects them, and if there’s something they should really think of carefully, it’s who and when they are marrying.

    It bothers me that Kudrow would even insinuate that a woman that is not a virgin would be “unworthy” of the kind of man she would hope to marry. A woman’s self value and societies value of her shouldn’t be based on virginity in any way. Not to mention the fact that virginity (as subjective of a term as that is) shouldn’t be the concern of strangers.

    • Chloe Adams

      I don’t think kudrow meant it as a generalisation that women who aren’t virgin’s aren’t worthy. I think she meant it more as she meant it as a personal comment to say she has high bars for him and she wants to ensure she meets them too

    Right, Lisa. In the meantime I suspect Stern wasn’t missing out on a thing. I can only see such a decision on a woman’s part if hubby was also a virgin. Meanwhile, knowing the likelihood of my partner and me ever getting a marriage license in Okla. or even getting our marriage recognized here if we had married in a Equality state, we chose not to wait. As a morality decision, being a virgin or not when you’re married ranks slightly lower in importance then what color nail polish the bride wears. Its an amusing but easily corrected quirk.

    Seeing all the comments criticizing them for waiting makes me sad. It’s THEIR sex life, not ours, so what right do we have to tell them what they should do with it? It’s a personal choice. Why is that particular choice so hard to respect?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=119100197 Jennifer Dinsmore

      I couldn’t agree more with Cattie-Bree Skye Price…. Why all the hate? There are tons of people who choose, for various reasons, to wait until marriage to have sex. I think this article would be rather nice for any girls (or guys) out there who have made that choice; to show them they are not alone in that choice. Isn’t that a feeling we all crave?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14102782 Caroline Jeffery

    from my perspective, lisa kudrow is saying she wanted to make herself worthy of the kind of man SHE had in mind, not the kind of the man EVERYONE should have in mind. i don’t see a moral angle in this article, it’s simply stating information, and for a lot of people, hearing about celebrities, perhaps their role models, being human beings just like them is comforting and validating and helps people feel a little less “other” for making similar decisions that are otherwise mocked by society. thanks eliza!

    Lisa Kudrow said that this is a common misconception about her and that it’s not true. Google it.

    “It won’t go away! Every time I say, ‘No, that’s not true. They say, ‘OK’ and then the next time it’s, ‘So listen, is it true you were a virgin when you got married?’…

    “What I was trying to say was when I was young I had always hoped and wanted to be a virgin when I got married, which I think is worthwhile.”

    This is a strange “article”.
    “losing” “virginity” … um, how about making sexual debut? How about virginity is a social construct?
    And most of all … WHY does anybody care what these people chose to do with their bodies?

  • Chloe Adams

    I think it’s great that there are people out there who make that decision despite all the pressure from society these days. It’s great. I didn’t personally because that’s not me, but I support everyone’s unique decisions for themselves
