Tamera Mowry-Housley Talks About Losing Her Virginity At 29, Staying Celibate Until Her Wedding

Actress and "The Real" co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley revealed she waited until she was almost 30 years old to lose her virginity, and then stayed celibate until her wedding because she felt guilty about it.

The 35-year-old and her co-hosts chatted with Hot 97 to promote their new show recently and delved into topics like twerking, Justin Bieber and sex. That is when Mowry-Housley admitted she didn't lose her virginity until she was 29 years old.

"I don't know how to explain this, but I'm religious... So I waited 'til I was 29 to lose my virginity," she said. "And then -- you may not understand this -- I did it and then I felt guilty, and then I became celibate until I got married."

But when the ladies brought a sex therapist onto the show, Mowry-Housley knew all the answers.

"Just 'cause you only had sex with one person don't mean you not a freak, and I think that that's a good thing," co-host Adrienne Bailon added. "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. And I think that's beautiful and dope."

Mowry-Housley married husband Adam, a Fox News correspondent, in 2011 after six years together. She gave birth to their first child, son Aden, the following year.

This isn't the first time the actress, who is a devout Christian, has opened up about what she has (and hasn't) done in the bedroom. She talked about her virginity with Young, Black and Fabulous two years ago.

"We decided, it was both of our decision, not to live together for religious reasons," she said. "I'm being very honest. We actually didn't wait before we got married to be intimate...but we did wait 3 years. [...] I wanted to do what felt right for me. I became re-virginized. It's something that just felt right for me. It was just a personal choice. And even after being intimate, we decided as a couple to be celibate until the wedding."
