Empowering Girls - Brooke Shields Wishes She had Lost Her Virginity Earlier

In an interview posted on, Health Magazine's website, Brooke Shields stated that her biggest health regret was not having had sex earlier.

Shields states that as a consequence of not having lost her virginity earlier than age 22, she carried around a protective 20 extra pounds in college, and was not as in touch with herself as she might have been.

Brooke Shields appears on the cover of the June 2009 issue of Health magazine. The online article is entitled, "Brooke Shields Gives Back: Her Mission to Empower Girls and More".

  1. It's interesting to see how sex has become an individual thing. It's no longer a method for procreation (though that may be a un/desired consequence). It's even less of an expression of love. For some I think it has become an "individual" tantric experience and a part of a journey of self discovery for young adults. Saying that there has been a divorce of sex and family is old news. For others, sex is like any other bodily urge. Like being on a long road trip with a 7-11 big gulp: if the urge is strong enough, what's wrong with pulling into the closest pit stop or stopping at the nearest cluster of trees? For example, it seems common place for men and women to express the desire to find a one night stand--Their not looking for love; it's the pit stop at the cluster of trees!

    On a similar note, my sister (then 14) and I overheard some girls at church (14 though 17-ish) talking about sex before marriage. One of them made the comment that she didn't think there was anything wrong with it as long as you used protection. In fact she thought it was a good idea: "I don't want to marry someone who's bad at it. How will I know unless we do it before we're married?"
