Nowadays it seems that in some ways old-school traditions aren't as common as they used to be, however, that's not the case for Tamera Mowry-Housley.

On Thursday (July 18) during a segment of her radio talk show, The Real on Hot 97, the "Sister Sister" actress opened up about being a virgin until she was 29-years-old.

"I don't know how to explain this," Mowry-Housley told her co-hosts. "I'm religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity."

Now married to her hubby Adam Housley, Tamera explains she even regretted doing the deed with him before they were official, “You may not understand this [but] I did it, then I felt guilty, then I became celibate until I got married."

Though some people may not understand her choice, fellow host Adrienne Bailon commended her for her decision, saying, "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."
