Sean Lowe holding off on sex until marriage
'Bachelor' star says Christain faith has made him a 'born again virgin'
"Bachelor" Sean Lowe says he is holding off on sex until he finally marries the woman of his dreams. In almost every episode of the dating show, the 29-year-old former fitness model appears shirtless and isn't afraid to garner more viewers with his sex appeal. But when it comes to his own love life, Lowe tells "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush that rumors he's calling himself a "born again virgin" are in fact true. He's waiting to get married until he gets intimate with another woman.
He admits, "I got to a point where I lived my life kinda the way I wanted to live it, so it was just a vicious circle that got me nowhere. So now, I'm at a point where I'm gonna try to live my life the right way -- as I see it." The ardent Christian, who repeatedly says he's serious about using the show to find his future wife, insists he didn't coin the phrase that the gossip sites are touting. He adds, "(My decision is) definitely faith influenced, but the 'born again virgin,' I've never used that term in my life."
"The Bachelor" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
I'm 53 with three grown children, can I please get mine back? With a cherry on top?
This show might as well be sited in Las Vegas where prostitution 'dates' are legal. The women wait in various skimpy outfits for their 'date' and then we get to watch everything but the loss of Sean's virginity again.
This show denigrates women terribly!
This made me laugh. Sure he's a Christian. Good for him. He's a "born again virgin". Good for him. Seriously, I had a good laugh reading this article. I haven't watched this show since it first appeared. It follows a formula - as always. This guy, struts around shirtless (oh, I've seen the commercials), the woman all drool over him vying for his attention (which is crazy - he's not that good looking - amazing what make up does for TV "personalities") ... wait... it's "reality" TV - or rather, "scripted reality" (there is a script that has to be followed). I know a number of Christian people who actually keep their clothes on and are not making out with many women (or men) every 5-10 minutes. BUT - he is 29. These women are wanting their 15 minutes (sometimes more) of being able to say - yes, I made out on TV and millions of people watched me as I did this. There is a whole lot of "mixed messages" being sent - ... I'm a good Christian man who won't have sex before marriage but will make out on national TV with women I just met ... and it's all good ... for ratings. As others have said, being a Christian doesn't mean you shout it out for all to hear - it's a personal thing between you and your God.
Again, it's all for ratings - and it has all of us chatting it up. The Bachelor has done its job at reeling everyone in and commenting on this. More publicity - good/bad/ugly - it's all good publicity. It's definitely NOT reality.
The show is scripted, edited, crap.
I was a born again virgin at times every couple of days.
Just to clarify (and so I can stop repeating myself), a "born again virgin" is not the same as a virgin. A "born again virgin" is someone who already had sex, but has decided not to have any MORE sex until he or she finds the person he/she wants to marry. If you believe that people should wait until sex, I AM NOT KNOCKING YOUR BELIEF. I'm simply pointing out that if you think people shouldn't have ANY sex until they're married, this isn't the guy you want to applaud, 'cause he already lost the big V. You only get one first...you don't get to just call yourself a virgin again because you've grown out of your party phase and want to get serious.
Obviously he is a 'new' virgin in Christ... I imagine that he always was not a virgin. But, if he is...how does he go around kissing all of those women??!! I hope he didn't hold it against Selma for holding back kissing him because of her faith!
This should be interesting.......... stay tuned in!
