Tamera Mowry: I Was a 29-Year-Old Virgin!

Tamera Mowry revealed yesterday that she waited until she was 29 to lose her virginity, and has only been with one person, husband Adam Housley.

"I don't know how to explain this," the co-host of The Real told an Atlanta radio station. "I'm religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity."

The star confessed that she lost her virginity to Housley when they were dating - before they were married - and immediately regretted doing so.

After her first time, she waited until their wedding - three years later - to have sex with him again. A born again virgin, to quote Bachelor Sean Lowe.

“You may not understand this [but] I did it, then I felt guilty, then I became celibate until I got married," said Mowry, now 35 and the mother of one.

During the interview, Mowry was applauded for abstinence by one of her co-hosts, Adrienne Bailon (who recently nixed her Rob Kardashian tattoo).

"Just because you only had sex with one person doesn't mean you're not a freak and I think that that's a good thing," Bailon told Mowry of her choice.

"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."

"That is beautiful and dope."
