Celebrity Quotes on
Saving Sex for Marriage
AMANDA PENIX
Miss Oklahoma USA 2000
“I’m saving sex for marriage because I want it to be something wonderfully special between my husband and myself. I don’t want him to compare me to anyone else and I don’t want to compare him. It’s important to let others know about your decision to save sex for marriage — don’t be embarrassed.”
KIM HILL
Singer and Songwriter
“The decision to have sex outside of marriage results in a slow, subtle kind of death. It’s the death of innocence and purity. The shattering of dreams. The numbing of a once vibrant, youthful spirit. The word abstinence implies denial and all sorts of negative restrictions. In truth, though, abstinence means wholeness and freedom and peace. A life of virtue can be a difficult road, but it’s a road of promise and excellence, and one without regret.”
A.C. GREEN
Basketball star on the Los Angeles Lakers' 2000 World Championship Team
“I’m proud to say that I am a virgin, and I don’t hide the strength God has given me. You have to learn to respect yourself before you can start respecting other people.”

KIRK CAMERON
Actor
“Sex within marriage is the only kind that’s truly fun and exciting — the kind that lasts for a lifetime. I’m glad I waited.”
BRETT BUTLER
Brett recently retired from the Los Angeles Dodgers as one of the top
25 leadoff hitters in the history of professional baseball. In 1996, after 16 years of playing professionally, he was diagnosed with cancer. He was never expected to play again, but overcame the disease and  continued to play successfully with the Dodgers. “Making love is a  wonderful thing between a husband and wife in marriage. God promises that He will bless that relationship. The marriage relationship will not be as fulfilling if you don’t abstain from sex before marriage. There is a danger of bringing emotional scars into marriage if you have sex in relationships prior to marriage.”
KIMBERLY GLOUDEMANS
Miss California Teen USA 1997
“It’s been echoed to teens over and over again – we are ’Generation X’ – we have no morals, no dreams and no future. But I know I am not a part of that same generation. In fact, millions of teenagers are finding out the same thing about themselves. We decided to rise above the constant stereotyping. We have morals and are standing up for what we believe in. We are setting goals and we are achieving them. I strongly  believe we are ‘Generation X-cellence’. “Because of that I am saving sex for marriage. I know God has great things destined for me and I don’t want to let premarital sex, STDs or anything else stop me from reaching those great things. Virginity is a gift I can only give once. It can’t be bought or earned. By saving this gift for marriage, I am saying, ’My whole life I have been committed to one. You are that one.’”
JESSICA SIMPSON
Singer
"I promised God, my father and my future husband that I would remain a virgin until I got married. I just always knew it was something I wanted to do."
