Evander Holyfield’s daughter Evette, who is a stylist and designer was recently interviewed by Essence.com and talks about being a 27 year old virgin in this day and age. I THINK THAT’S AWESOME! Check out some of what she shared…
On why she decided to be abstinent until marriage?
We grew up in a Christian home. When I was around six years old, my dad said to me, “You don’t need to have sex outside of marriage.” He went through the whole spiel with me. So as I grew up, I thought, okay dad, if you don’t want me to do it, I’m not gonna do it. Then I started to really understand church – the words in the Bible and what the pastor is really saying. At that point, I wasn’t just doing it because my dad said don’t, but rather, I now believe that by waiting, God will bless me and bring me a great husband.
On if it has been difficult for her to remain a virgin:
Honestly, it’s easy for me. I was in a three-year relationship, and I never had those desires for him in that way. He never pressured me. In my mind, I already have it set that I’m not gonna do it, so if someone were to pressure me, it wouldn’t even phase me. I just don’t have those desires.
