Brooke Shields calls herself "the most celebrated virgin of all time" in her memoir, There Was A Little Girl, and she previously wrote a chapter about her virginity in her teen memoir, The Brooke Book. "The whole virginity thing happened quite genuinely," she says. "I had no problem talking about it because I talked about it with my friends. My mother thought it was important for me to then represent that to kids. I was just honest, and like, 'By the way, I also didn't smoke and I had braces.' These things were not off limits with regard to the public and their knowledge of me so I thought, 'Okay, that'll be a good chapter.'" As for when Shields lost her virginity, it was in college — to a man who'd later be Superman. Shields says she and Dean Cain met at Princeton University and were "instantly crazy about one another ... always holding hands and trying to find ways to be alone and kiss, but poor guy, I made him wait." She adds, "I think it was more tortuous for him because I was used to shutting that part [of me] off." Shields admits that her overbearing mother played a role in her sexual difficulties with Cain, and she split with the Lois And Clark star not long after.
