Yvonne Orji Opens Up About Her Choice To Save Her Virginity Until Marriage
Say it loud…I’m a virgin and I’m proud!
Yvonne Orji, who stars as Molly on the HBO hit series, “Insecure,” is an open book and doesn’t shy away from the fact that she is a devout Christian who is saving her virginity until she’s married.
In a recent interview with People, the 31-year-old actress and comedian opened up about by she doesn’t mind sharing something so personal publicly:
I’m open, because why not? I’m grounded in who I am.
Before any of [the fame] happened, I sat down with myself and with God and thought, when I make it, how do you want me to represent you while I’m here? It was like, OK, I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.
People ask about it because they’re curious, or they may not understand. How will they ever get understand if I don’t talk about it? I can inform your curiosity, as opposed to everyone being in the dark and just sort of creating their own narrative about it.
In a society that is oversexualized it’s refreshing to hear stories like this.
You go girl!
