While most couples will be intimate with one another ahead of their wedding night, one New York husband and wife to be have remained abstinent.
Jonathan Louis, 24, is a devout Christian and has been abstinent for three years.
He has never been intimate with fiancée Naya Ford, 23, who he met in July 2022, and proposed to in May this year.
Since he got engaged, Jonathan has been hitting the gym daily in preparation for their wedding and honeymoon.
He has been eating supplements which are said to help in the bedroom and increase libido - such as sea moss, horny goat weed, maca root and ashwagandha.
He has also been doing exercises such as hip thrusts and squats to hit all the right muscle groups so he knows he'll be good on their wedding night, as well as cardio so he 'doesn't get out of breath'.
While they haven't yet set a date, they're aiming to marry in 2025 followed by a honeymoon in Southeast Asia or Greece.
Despite it being over a year away yet, Jonathan wants his first spicy night with Naya, a full-time influencer, to tick every box.
The tech sales representative said: "As Christians, we believe your body is a temple and that in marriage, a man and wife give each other their bodies.
"So I want to give her my best and make sure she likes what she sees.
"I believe the first time will be an experience, with all the excitement of the wedding planning and the marriage.
"Our first night will be the cherry on top!"
Naya added: "I've been in the gym getting ready too, and Jonathan has been helping me.
"For me it's wedding day prep as much as honeymoon prep - I have got to look good in my dress.
"But I'm definitely looking forward to our first time together as well - this waiting isn't fun."
Jonathan, from Brooklyn, New York City, and Naya have both had sex in the past, but have been abstinent in the time they have known each other.
They became an item in October 2022 before Jonathan proposed in May this year.
He said waiting until marriage hasn't been easy, and hasn't come without moments of temptation.
He said: "If we go for a late night out, we decide to meet up somewhere in the middle of us both so we're not tempted to sleep over because of a long journey home.
"Also what helps is an honest conversation - admitting 'I'm horny and you're horny' can help to relieve the tension."
I'm not sure how admitting that you're both horny will help the situation, but each to their own!
