Tamera Mowry-Housley Talks About Losing Virginity at 29

When it comes to sex, Tamera Mowry-Housley might have gotten a later start than most, but the actress wants people to know that she's not the clueless lover.

"I don't know how to explain this. I'm religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity. You may not understand this [but] I did it, then I felt guilty, then I became celibate until I got married," Mowry-Housley confessed during a stop by Hot 97 with her cohosts of daytime talk show The Real.

The 35-year-old mom, who married Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley in 2011, then shared that when a sex therapist visited the talk show, she knew everything that was discussed. Fellow cohost Adrienne Bailon chimed in to defend Mowry-Housley and says that numbers have nothing to do with how good you are in the bedroom.

"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. 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," she said.
