Open Thread: Tamera Mowry Admits To Losing Her Virginity At 29

In a recent interview with New York radio station, Hot 97, Tamera Mowry opened up about her sex life. Mowry stated that because of her religious background, she waited until she was 29 to lose her virginity.

“I don’t know how to explain this. I’m religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity.”

Tamera lost her virginity when she was dating her now husband, Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, but she stated she had mixed feelings about the whole experience.

“I did it, then I felt guilty, then I became celibate until I got married.”

In a previous interview with The YBF, Mowry went into a little more detail about her decision to prolong sex and not to live together:

“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.”


What do you think about Tamera’s decision? At what age did you lose your virginity?

  • *clenches teeth* You can NOT be “revirginized”. Once your hymen is broken it’s broken. Once the male anatomy enters you that’s pretty much it. These days our entire society is tmi, so who cares that she decided to share this story. I’m glad she did, so younger girls can know that not everyone loses their virginity at 17 or 18 and that you can make a conscious decision not to lose it. With all the music, movies, romance self help books etc. you start to see one view of sex. It amazes me how some people still don’t get that sex is extremely subjective.

    That whole revirginized, born again virgin, w.e. the hell they call it concept needs to die though.

      OMG the “revirginized” comment is not that serious (this isn’t just directed at you. A lot of ppl had the same reaction but I’m just venting here. sorry). Tamara is a smart woman, I’m sure she (like most intelligent women) know that scientifically speaking you can’t get your virginity back. It was just her way of saying that she wasn’t going to have sex anymore and was going back to mindset she had when she was a virgin. A lot of ppl who say they are celibate don’t see it as long ter (ie, until marriage,) but rather until they are in their next serious relationship).

      I do agree with you that our entire culture is tmi and that it is nice for kids to hear that it’s okay to go against the grain and wait to have sex if that’s what you choose to do. We hear countless celebrities talk about having sex during interviews and in their music so there is nothing wrong with her sharing another perspective.

    I prefer that celebrities don’t share their sex lives at all. Whether it’s that they waited until marriage, slept with a bunch of people, or somewhere in between. I’m sure she was prompted to tell this info but I feel this is the type of convo you have with your girlfriends.

    I already feel like society is already too invested in celebrities lives. Furthermore, sometimes it feels like women celebrities who wait to have sex latently expect to be congratulated or something. But it’s her personal story…do you, Tamera.

    She and her husband decided what was best for them. That’s the best thing anyone can do in a relationship. I think it’s fine for her to share that (not great, not terrible). We have no problem with people sharing how much and how often they have sex, especially rappers or other entertainers. We talk about sex all the time, even on this site from time to time. Why is it TMI when she shared that she didn’t?

    I am a lady in my mid-twenties who is still a virgin trying my best to hold onto it through God’s strength…definitely not of my own. I just feel way too guilty every single time I am almost about to do it that I’ve just decided God knows best and I will just wait. It complicates things less for me.

    I recently lost my virginity and felt guilty as Tamara described. I had been a virgin for religious reasons. And truthfully looking back on that night it wasn’t worth the guilt I felt until I confessed & repented. Now I’ve decided it’s best I’m celibate & I’ll wait until I’m married to engage in sexual activities. As for those that believe her sharing her sex life is TMI?? I’m a bit confused when other celebrities in her position give in detail what they do or are turned on by… Meanwhile, she just started how she lost her virginity, felt guilty, and chose to wait till marriage by becoming revirginized. I just believe there’s a stigma that ppl need to stop. First, some ppl commend a person for being a virgin next minute they taunt the person for their decision to abstain. Ultimately, that probably comes from the persons guilt therefore they feel the need to taunt a person who decides to abstain from sexual activity.

      Is being “revirginized” something different from celibacy? This article is the first that I’ve heard that term used.
