In Touch has learned that The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe is holding off on sex.
Former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft — whose friend dated the Texas native for three years — shares with In Touch, on stands now, “He’s waiting until marriage.”
“He’s hooked up with different girls,” says the friend. “But it never gets to sex.” Sean’s “a good Southern boy.”
Sean explains, “You know, I have done a lot of things in my life that I regret. Like all of us I have made some decisions in my past I do regret, but as I get older I do appreciate things more and I do know that sex is special, so I’m going to try my best to hold up.”
“I think sex is something special,” he tells In Touch. “It should be shared with the one you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.”
More power to him. I’m not sure if I could pull that off, and I’m almost not entirely sure it’s a good idea. I was raised very religious, and I can count probably five couples who waited until marriage to have sex – and then their marriage didn’t work. I’m not saying it’s the sex that did it, but I do think you can’t really know a person until you have sex with them. I DO agree, though, that promiscuity is wrong. I see nothing redeeming in sleeping around. Wait until you’ve found the right one. Sex isn’t something to be thrown around easily.
Okay, off my soap box and onto the next post.
