Teddi explains her abstinence and why she's "different" from other virgins
Teddi explained why she's waiting to have sex and how long she plans to wait during a recent appearance on the "Click Bait with Bachelor Nation" podcast co-hosted by Joe Amabile, Tia Booth and Natasha Parker.
For starters, Teddi insisted she had no reservations or fear about sharing she's a virgin right away onThe Bachelor's 26th season.
"I'm very open about that, so I had no issues about saying that," Teddi said. "And I say that really early on with guys I've dated in the past. I tell everyone that I know [that I'm a virgin]."
Teddi noted how she's "not a very stereotypical virgin" and no one "really expects" her to be when they meet her.
"I'm not waiting until marriage, so that's why it's a little bit different than other people that are virgins," Teddi said.
"When I was in college, I thought I was maybe going to wait until marriage. I grew up in a very Christian household and I'm still Christian. The college that I went to is Christian."
However, some major self-reflection and being honest with herself led Teddi to an epiphany.
"I think after I graduated, I kind of was looking back at all of my values and beliefs, and that was the one I always went back to," Teddi recalled.
Teddi said she questioned herself, "Am I actually doing this because I feel like it's bettering myself or am I doing it because there's a lot of shame associated with women having sex and it changing the identity of the person?"
"And I felt like for me," Teddi explained, "it was connected more to not wanting it to be taken away from my identity. And that's just not a good enough reason for me."
Also, Teddi revealed she is "a sexual person," even though she hasn't had sex.
"I think that women should be [sexual] and they should be okay and happy and proud of that," she noted. "So, yeah, I changed [my mindset] to, 'I waited this long, I want to wait until I'm in love.'"
Natasha gathered that Teddi seems to be waiting for a "real" and "mature" love, and Teddi nodded her head in agreement.
