Phaedra Parks On Why She Hasn’t Had Sex W/ Boyfriend Medina Islam: I Didn’t Want To Be Blinded By Passion!

Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” peach-holder Phaedra Parks has made it clear why her new boo, actor Medina Islam, isn’t getting any from her. On this season of WeTV’s “Marriage Boot Camp,” Phaedra Parks revealed that she and Medina haven’t had sex yet.

Phaedra Parks, 46, recently shared why she made the decision to hold out on adding sex to the equation with Medina Islam, 35 – adding that she feels she moved too quickly with her ex-boyfriend, Chicago radio host Tone Kapone:

“Well, it’s a decision I made. Medina was definitely totally against it, but for myself, I needed to know him in an intimate way outside of a physically intimate way because prior to Medina I dated a guy in Chicago. And that was a long distance relationship and it was very passionate, but when we became physical, it hindered us getting to know each other intimately on any other level.”

She continued,

“…I wanted to make sure that this time I wasn’t blinded by the passion and that I really knew who Medina was as a person. Because that can sometimes change your thoughts about a man in a good way and in bad way. I wanted to know that I was not rushing into a physical relationship in this scenario.”

She added that Medina Islam wasn’t a fan of her decision:

He was obviously totally against it, but I had to do what was best for me.”

She continued:

“…unlike a lot of women out there, I have a lot of masculine traits because I work in very male dominated fields. Being a lawyer with mostly men, in the funeral business it’s mostly men, and so in working with men all the time I think that some of the traits that guys, generally have and I think that can sometimes be hard for me and because they’re probably used to women who are a little softer and, you know, a lot different for me. So, communication can be hard for me because I’m constantly working, I’m very type A, and sometimes I’m a hard nut to crack.”
