Toni Braxton Says She Regrets Not Having More Sex When She Was Younger: 'My Religious Upbringing Stopped Me'

Toni Braxton has one regret — and that’s not doing things the young kids do when the young kids were out doing them…if you know what we mean.

“I regret not having more sex when I was younger,” Braxton told The Guardian. “I should have drank more. I should have partied more. Smoked more, even. I think my religious upbringing stopped me doing a lot of things that I should have done. It’s not a good look at the age I am now. The way it works is you do that stuff in your 20s and 30s and then in your 40s you’ve earned enough to pay for the therapy.”

Braxton grew up in several religions — all of which looked down on premarital sex.

When I was seven, my family became very religious,” Braxton told the paper. “We were Jehovah’s Witnesses; we were Catholic — we tried everything before settling on United Methodist. I asked my mum once what they were searching for and she just replied: ‘It was the ’70s.’ The ’70s were a very religious era. I think a lot of people were looking for the right path.”

The singer doesn’t subscribe to any religion now but adds, “I wouldn’t say I was religious, but I am spiritual. I believe in a greater force.”

It’s not too late, Toni.
