Her character on HBO’s “Insecure” may be a bit of a hot mess, but the real woman behind Molly is

Nigerian-American actress Yvonne Orji, whose true character is shaped by God’s word.

The comedian and writer is our hero for her firm biblical stance on abstinence which you can check

out in her new TEDx talk about her decision to wait for marriage to have sex.

“What the wait does is weed out the riff-raff. A lot of people think the wait is actually keeping me

from my Prince Charming,” said the 33-year-old. But she believes it keeps her from linking up with

commitment-phobes—and we say amen to that!

Though waiting admittedly isn’t easy, the comedian and writer stressed that abstinence “sets you

up for quality relationships.”

Instead of caving into lustful desires of the flesh, Orji said, “Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice short-

term comforts to get long-term quality relationships.”

And that means no compromising.
