In a chat with The Breakfast Club Yvonne persisted that she is still waiting for that special guy.

"Personally, I had plans to have sex when I turned 18,” she said. “I was dating [dude] and I had it figured out. But, I got to college at 17 in D.C and then I got saved.”

Yvonne wears her virginity proudly despite judgement from both her male and female friends. She even has her own line of tees that bare the slogan, “Keepin’ It Locked Til I Get That Rock.”

The actress had high hopes for her first sexual experience, planning to have some candle light and music in the room…

She was 17 and dreamy-eyed at the time…fastforward  to 2017, the actress is yet to have that magical first time sex but she no longer cares.

A combination of her friend’s low expectation of sex, being “bamboozled by Jesus and her parents’ strict advice helped the pretty actress remain a virgin at 33 and come to grips with the fact that waiting for the real one is actually worth it.
