Yvonne Orji Explains Why She Went Public With Her Virginity
Despite all the steamily raunchy smash scenes she gets into on “Insecure” as Molly, actress Yvonne Orji can honestly say she doesn’t know anything about all that, because she’s kept her cookies in the jar into her early 30’s.
The comedienne/actress says she has no problem letting folks in on her business when it comes to her decision to keep her goodies to herself, because she feels that she’s in position to represent those who’ve made the same choice and hold the same beliefs. As she told People Magazine:
“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.”
Yvonne doesn’t shy away from questions about it because, for most in today’s society, the decision NOT to have sex is a foreign concept.
“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.”
Well, great for Yvonne! Great for her to use her platform to let folks in on a lifestyle choice that’s important to her…
