In an interview with comedian Phoebe Robinson, Rodriguez shared the story of losing her virginity, and it’s as Gina as you would expect.

“I lost my virginity, which I feel is pretty early, I was 17,” Rodriguez told Robinson. “It was my boyfriend of a year-ish. He was leaving to Chile to study abroad, and we wanted to lose it to each other. We wanted to make sure that it was special and that we would always have a beautiful memory of it. So… I lost my virginity to the sweetest guy ever. It was pretty magical. It was like safety. He put on a song, we were at my friend’s farm house in like the outskirts of Chicago.”

“It was like a Mandy Moore freaking movie, dude,” Rodriguez said in the interview.

So romantic ?.

But Rodriguez says that since she is Puerto Rican and her ex-boyfriend is Chilean, people expected them to already be sexually active.

“And like, to be Puerto Rican and he was Chileno, we were the furthest from that kind of experience, or, at least, grew up the furthest from that kind of experience,” Rodriguez told Robinson. “So it was really lovely to step out of the stereotype.”

By waiting till 17, Rodriguez says it was how she broke the stereotype of Latinas being promiscuous. She even talked about a friend who got pregnant at 14 before Rodriguez even had her period.

Rodriguez then explains to Robinson that before she started working on “Jane the Virgin,” she had a boyfriend who was very devout and was saving himself for marriage. In that relationship, she learned what it really means to make the commitment to save yourself, and it doesn’t mean you don’t have desires — you just have better control over those desires.

Since virginity has been such a thing in Rodriguez’s own life, she wanted to make sure she portrayed it well as Jane Villanueva.

“I didn’t want her to lack sexuality, she was making a commitment and this kind of commitment is just unpopular in our society,” Rodriguez told Robinson about portraying Jane. “All we have to do is make it popular.”

That’s right. Rodriguez is all about celebrating the people who can make the virginal commitment by making sure she plays her role right.

Like she told The Hollywood Reporter back in July 2016, she met a virgin who was 25 and made the commitment to save herself. Rodriguez was floored by the woman who decided to wait and has nothing but respect for her.

But that doesn’t mean Rodriguez doesn’t have some hopes for Jane in season 3.

Latinas Shared The Movies And Shows That Made Them Feel Seen

Nickelodeon

It’s no secret that over the past few decades, people of color worked to fight for equal representation on screens both big and small. While, of course, there have been great POC and LGTBQ relationships on television there’s really been a spike in the spectrum of representation since our early years watching television and learning about relationships.

Recently, we asked Latinas on Instagram what shows and movies featured their favorite most diverse couples.

And the answers threw us for a time loop!

Check them out below!


“Maria and Luis on Sesame Street.”- melissa_phillips71


“Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner is The Bodyguard, they reminded me of my parents and they loved to play the soundtrack.” –millenialmarta


“The leads in Someone Great, Jane and Michael the virgin and the lesbian relationship Gentrified. It’s been 30 years and I finally found characters I can relate to.” –allyss_abyss_

“Most definitely, “Brooklyn 99”: two female Hispanics as regulars and a white person playing a Hispanic (Andy Samberg’s character’s last name is Peralta, which is a Spanish surname).” – seadra2011

“Holt and Kevin(and Rosa Diaz) have changed the way people have perceived gay couples and gay people. Nine Nine!” –chaoticbiguy


“The first on-screen presence that made me feel seen/represented period was @justinamachado ‘s character on One Day At A Time. A Latina veteran struggling with her mental health while trying to juggle school, work, love, and family? And as a main character? Whew….“-vieja.metiche

“Taína! It was on Disney if I remember correctly?? Then @americaferrera in sisterhood of the traveling pants as Carmen. 😭❤️ her life was like mine. Growing up in suburbs but never really having a place culturally.. but my girlfriends still had my back no matter our background.” –chessy__a

Users Shared The Best Sex Advice They Ever Got And Get Ready For Some Fun!

So you’re in quarantine, holed up at home all day, and the sex (either with your partner or quarantine buddy) is getting tedious. Likely this has nothing to do with your mate but a whole heck of a lot do with your current pandemic stress. And we get it, having sex under pressure (particularly when every day is uncertain) can be kind of a hard thing to do.

Fortunately, we came across a few threads on Reddit with some helpful tips not only on how to spice things up, but also how to do things the right way.

Check out some of the best pieces of sex advice Reddit users have received below.

“Sister in-law told us to ditch the PJs and sleep naked. Frequency of sex increased almost immediately.” – Smartyandfarty

“There was a story on reddit where this guy said a girl his dad pointed out was out of his league abd the dad said something like ‘Son, let her decide if she won’t fuck you.’ Pretty good advice.” – Pakyul

“Cut your finger nails.”- Reddit user=

“Making it fun is usually the answer to whatever happens in bed.” – TalkingFromTheToilet

“70-year-old give-no-fucks biology teacher at a Catholic High School: ‘Ladies never trust the man. Use a diaphragm.'” –kalechipsyes

“I tell my kids, “If you think getting a condom ruins the mood, imagine what a crying baby will do for it.” – AFuddyDuddy

“Tell him exactly what you want him to do – a guy I was casually seeing. After two long term relationships (3 Years & 4 years) with 0 orgasms, this little tip made orgasms regular with my current BF. Seems obvious, but I know lots of other women who have experienced something similar.” – FluffyRadcliffe

“Always use a condom, otherwise you have an accident and have to name it.” –Drulock

“Stop trying to **** **** like they do in porn. Find your own style and comfort level and it’s a win/win. I used to be so awkward and now I actually enjoy doing it. Also enjoying it is half the battle. Men like it much more when there’s some enthusiasm!”- Daisy716

“No teeth, lots of slobber, make it look really fun, and do it for him regularly.” – Girlwhofliesoften

“Don’t be afraid to discuss what you like and don’t like in bed, including weird kinks. Never gonna live that fantasy out of your partner doesn’t even know about it.” – EpicBlinkstrike187

“Strap on. Get one.” – pancakemixes

“Yo, imma let you finish, but the spiderman finger position is the best fingering position of all time!” –FlowersOfSin

“I suggest looking at the lyrics to the song “lick it” by God-des and She. Have fun.” – sugartea

“I’m a woman and I recognize this might seem self explanatory to others but to me it took some talking out. Move! Literally just move! Friction feels good and a lot of men will be very surprised and impressed if you actively participate in the sexing, by moving your hips back and forth, touching them, etc. Surprise! Men like a partner that doesn’t lay there like a fish! I regrettably used to lay very still and let him “have his way with me”. While sexy in theory, no one wants to fuck a dead fish. My ex-boyfriend gave me this advice while we were fucking.” – ExoticNoodle

“Start very slowly and look at her the whole time.”- IngridDruslan

“You have to feel it out. There is no tutorial for sex. It’s practice. The best thing that you can do is to do what you might want done to you, at the same time take in how she’s enjoying it. The no.1 thing that’s horny about sex is the getting to know each other. I’ve been in situations where I had no clue what I was doing when I was young but my energy was enough to make them cum, if not my skill. Just feel it out.”- gemaliasthe1st

“My only tip is to not take it so seriously. If you fumble or feel awkward, just laugh about it. Have fun and take it easy. Even if neither of you orgasm, the important part is that you both enjoy it.” – astroboletos
