The Philippines is still considered to be a very conservative country. Talking about profane, vulgar, or sexual innuendos are still largely be taken as taboo. Another evidence is that we still highly think of sexual purity. Yes, being a virgin is still a prize.
Here are some celebrities who don't want to do the deed, at least pre-maritally speaking:
1. Megan Young
Miss World 2014 is proud that she is still a virgin. She's steadfast in her belief that sex should be done after marriage, and if anybody pushes you to do it early, you need to think twice about the person. She thinks if the person really values you, he/she will respect your decision.
2. Janine Tugonon

3. Jewel Mische
This actress is very vocal about her faith. Being raised in a Christian home, she sees sex as God's gift and although it is a gift- it should only be opened and discovered after marriage.

4. Nikki Gil
Nikki is one formidable woman. She made it a vow to refrain from engaging in sexual activities until she gets married. She boasts that she sees sex as something valuable.
