Phaedra Parks Explains Why She Didn't Rush To Sleep W/ BF Medina Islam

Reality television Phaedra Parks has finally revealed why she did not sleep with her boyfriend Medina Islam, despite being together for many months.

"Well, it's a decision I made [myself]," Phaedra told HollywoodLife.

"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 further explained, "I wanted to make sure that this time [that] 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. He was obviously totally against it, but I had to do what was best for me."
