I am a thirty-three year old virgin on purpose, not by accident. I want sex; in fact I am convinced that I need it. Am I allowed to say that? Am I wrong for thinking that?
Some people think I am controversial, others love my honesty. But really, I just like talking about sex- The good stuff, the way it is supposed to happen- in marriage.
For the majority of my life (and still today) I have been the center of bets and jokes simply because I am a virgin. Here’s the thing, I know exactly what I am “missing out on” by waiting. I know the kind of sex girls have with their boyfriends, and I know that I don’t want to have that kind of sex.
I grew up reading relationship books and listening to abstinence speakers, over and over again it was drilled into my head, “don’t have sex; sex is bad.” I don’t know how it was possible to fall while asleep reading a book about sex, but I did. Why? Because no one was really talking about sex. So I began researching and I began writing. After all, I haven’t waited this long for nothing.
Some people know that the Bible says to save sex for marriage, but many don’t realize that it says much more than that. I was shocked to learn that the Bible talks about good, godly, arousing sex (between a husband and his wife).
I have been speaking to audiences for over thirteen years and love every minute of it. Since my book NO SEX IN THE CITY was released, I have appeared on TV and Radio, been the featured personality in Magazines, Newspapers, and Keynote Speaker for various youth and singles conferences.
In a nutshell, I love teaching the truth about godly sex, lies about virgins, purity, and my two cents on dating and relationships.
