Andy Grammer proudly saved himself for marriage. But he had a little help.

The singer revealed the tidbit while appearing on The Talk Wednesday (Aug. 3), during a discussion about a new study that found younger millennials -- born in the 1990s -- are more than twice as likely to be sexually inactive in their early 20s as the previous generation.
