Losing one’s virginity is one of the most sacred, sought after conquest of a teenager's life. For some reason, there is an emphasis on being someone’s “first” and having bragging rights (and that goes for both guys and girls). However, there is a new trend in town and it involves actually cherishing the act of sex and knowing that it is okay to want to wait for the right person. Could this be because more celebrities are being honest and revealing how long they waited? Or because they regretted the circumstances in which their virginity was lost? Either way, it looks like holding onto your v-card is the new way of expressing one's independence; and no, we are not referring to the media virgins, the ones who were somewhat pressured into pretending to be virgins (like Britney Spears), but the one's who took the time out to make a decision that was wise for them. Carrie Underwood, Lolo Jones and Kevin Jonas are just some of the celebrities who waited or are still waiting to share that special moment with that perfect person. Celebrity advocates are important to a topic like this one because they are what tweens today look up to as role models and contrary to popular belief, it is not always about religion; Adriana Lima wanted to wait because it was a gift she could give her husband that not many women can, and Will Ferrell, he waited till he was 21 and in love simply because he felt that it should happen that way. It looks like society is starting to get a grip on the idea that you do not have to do something because it is “cool”. See, not everyone loses their virginity in high school; here is a list of 12 celebs that held on and held out for the right one.

12 Jessica Simpson - Age: 22

11 Leelee Sobieski - Age: 26

10 Lolo Jones - Age: Still Waiting

9 Tim Tebow - Age: Still Waiting

8 Lisa Kudrow - Age: 32

7 Kevin Jonas - Age: 22

6 Adriana Lima - Age: 27

5 Celine Dion - Age: 20

Honorary member of the club is Celine Dion, simply because she waited for her husband to be ready. When Dion met her husband Rene Angelil, she was 12 and by 17, she had revealed to him the deep feelings she possessed. Later in life when she got up the courage to pursue him, he thwarted her advances feeling she was too young. Dion speaks candidly about her pursuit and his reaction; “It was he who called me several minutes later from the lobby of the hotel to ask if I was all right. And then he told me: ‘If you really want to, I’ll be the first.’ And I answered him: ‘You’ll be the first, and the only.’” You have to give it to the girl, she knows what she wants. By the age of 20 she married him and till this day, he is still the one and only.

4 Carrie Underwood - Age: 27

3 Chris Martin - Age: 22

2 Meagan Good - Age: 31

1 Tina Fey - Age: 24

Tiny Fey refused to give away her virginity to just anyone; "I couldn’t give it away," that's just good, Christian values, or, being homely." Fey may not strike you as religious and she is not a fanatic about it, but there is definitely a bout of spiritualism in her that helped her refrain from giving it away to the wrong guy. So who was the lucky man? Fey’s now husband Jeff Richmond. Almost fifteen years of marriage, 2 daughters and they are still going strong. That says a lot in Hollywood. Fey maintains that everyone has a choice and that was her choice.
