Stephanie Matto’s public persona is all about sex but her real life is quite the opposite. As a matter of fact, the TLC alum made it known that she has been celibate for over two years and says it’s the best decision she has made.
Viewers will remember that Stephanie and her then-girlfriend Erika Owens was the first same-sex couple to appear on the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. The women met online after Erika saw some of Stephanie’s raunchy videos and reached out to her.
Soon enough they were dating and when the show aired Stephanie made the trip to Australia to visit Erika. However, the Australian native was in for a surprise when she quickly realized that Stephanie was nothing like her bold and sexy public persona.
However, the popular YouTuber wasn’t just putting on a display for TV, she was actually celibate prior to appearing on the show and has been for over two years now.

After her recent appearance on 90 Day Bares All, where she opened up about celibacy, someone sent Stephanie a message on Instagram and applauded her decision to publicly speak about it. The Instagram user also noted that they were also practicing celibacy and found it “refreshing to hear someone openly talk about” it.
“Celibacy was the best thing I did,” responded Stephanie. “I went into it with so many hopes and goals and today I am in such a good place.”
She also told the person, “If you ever find yourself in a place sexually, emotionally — where you feel unsatisfied, anxious, used, unfulfilled, take that time to learn to love your body… on your own terms”
