Molly From 'Insecure' Reveals She's a 32-Year-Old Virgin

Sooo… how does Yvonne Orji do those hot love scenes?

Published November 18, 2016

Insecure has quickly become the show to watch on Sunday nights, with the social media community forming close bonds to its characters with each episode.

One of the characters on the show, Issa Rae's lawyer best friend Molly, played by actress Yvonne Orji, is known for her troubled dating life but spicy sex life. However, Orji revealed during an interview with The Breakfast Club that she's not as sexually liberated as her character is as she's actually still a virgin.

"I'm a virgin now, yeah," she told DJ Envy. "I'm a virgin-virgin... I've never [masturbated]. I promise you."

When asked if she is somehow ashamed of being a virgin, the Insecure actress said she's 100 percent secure in the decision.

"I'm proud of it," she said. "Why not? The same way people know somebody who had a one night stand, it's like, you can say that and I can say, 'No, I actually haven't."

When asked if she wants to have sex, though, she admitted with a smile, "I absolutely do."

Proving her acting chops are A1, the actress explained how she delivers those sex-scenes on the show so believably, but did admit that they do have an effect on her when the director calls "cut."

"Molly be poppin'," she said. "What's funny is like it really does get in your spirit... We did a bulk of our sex scenes on the same day and I remember going home like, 'Who I got in my phone, though?' because this dude was just on top of me."

She also had this to say — which we love her for — to those who may think she never has sexual thoughts: "I'm a virgin, not a mannequin challenge."
