Despite mainstream media depictions, all men aren’t hot in the pants and refusing to wait for marriage to have sex.

33-year-old Gospel recording artist Kevin Levar says, before his bride walked down the aisle to marry him, he was committed to his vow of purity.

“It was just something morally that I felt was right for me and important for my walk with God,” the ‘Your Destiny” singer said in an interview with ESSENCE.

“I didn’t want to be a hypocrite singing and ministering in front of people and then my life wasn’t what I was singing about.”

Though some statistics show that as high as 80 percent of unmarried young adults, ages 18-29, are having sex, Levar is living proof that there are some who are willing to make the sacrifice.

“My wife was actually a virgin when we got married and I had been celibate for 15 years,” he said.
