Celebrities who chose to be celibate, past and present

celibate, lisaraye They say sex sells. But celebrities who abstain from sex is even more fascinating. That’s because Hollywood — sometimes nicknamed Sodom and Gomorrah and Babylon for a reason — is notorious for its lusty libidos and raging hormones that practically fly off entertainers like sparks.
