The struggle is real.

In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Ciara revealed how hard it has been to remain abstinent with her current boyfriend Russell Wilson.

Her boo, Seattle Seahawks quarterback, famously — and “accidentally” — divulged that the couple decided to abstain from sex until marriage during an interview with Pastor Miles McPherson at San Diego’s Rock Church in July. Russell said he asked Ciara in the beginning of their relationship, “I said to her – and she completely agreed – ‘Can we love each other without that?” He added, “If you can love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.

And, while he seemed pretty adamant about the decision the duo came to, he told the crowd, “I ain’t gonna lie – I need ya’ll to pray for us. Because I know you have seen her on the screen now. If there’s a 10, she’s a 15. Pray for me, keep my mind clear, keep my heart clear.

It seems like Ciara is fighting those very same temptations.

During her interview, she admitted, “I’m not gonna lie. I’m human, so it is not easy, especially when I look at him and I think he is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen – that I’ve ever laid my eyes on, to be honest.

And how does Ciara deal with her urges? “I’m like, Look the other way! Look the other way!

So far, it seems her strategy has been working.

Although the two have not taken their relationship to sexual level, Ciara did add how their lack of sex has brought them closer. She said, “We get to have really healthy conversations and focus on each other as people. That is very important to me and him. It’s very valuable. We’re just enjoying ourselves and going one day at a time and praying and staying positive. Being strong here!

While their relationship may come off as unconventional to most, they seem to be doing just fine.

In the meantime, stay strong, Ciara!

  1. What is the hold up? Why have they not set a date for marriage? They have been “dating” long enough! It is not like they are in their 20’s or neither have very lucrative careers, what is the delay Russell?

    Ahh, hiding behind the cloak of celibacy – she’s gonna eventually “get it”, man. You can’t help who your are–religion can’t help you. Don’t drag her into your identity struggle. Be honest with her. When you’re struggling to “tap that” even, let’s say, once every two weeks, she’s gonna know, dude. She’s gonna figure it out. She is not a virgin and she’s knows when a man likes “it” or not. I wish you well.

  3. End the end, you will get more respect. Yes, people always talk about sex but look how those people are viewed at the end of the day (Kim K, Madonna, etc and even people you know). It is simular to people or kids who say “yes mam” and “No Mam” instead of yes or no. While many people will say “you do not have to say that to me” or “that a child does not have to say those words”; at the end of the day, the people and children who say it will get the most respect with people actions.

  4. I think this is wonderful, sex only clouds things…and when you can clearly see each other with your eyes, and not urges, it changes the ball game. God be with you both, you can do it!!!!
