When it comes to abstinence, people usually save that for when they’re not in a relationship or before they tie the knot. But for Terry Crews, who has been married for more than 25 years, it seemed like there was no better time than the present to cut out sex because he recently revealed that he and his wife decided to fast from sex for 3 months.
In a new interview with “HuffPost Live,” Crews spoke about his marriage to Rebecca King-Crews and explained that their “90-day sex fast” left him “more in love” and “more turned on” than he’d ever been in his marriage.
“90 days — no sex, all relationship, all talk, all cuddle,” he explained. “I found that at the end of that 90 days … I knew who she was, and it wasn’t about ‘Let’s go out because I know I’m gonna get some sex later.’ It was like, ‘Let’s go because I want to talk to you. I want to know you.’”
Crews went on to explain that “every man has a desire for intimacy.” However, he believes that many men go about it the wrong way or they don’t understand how to cultivate a lasting and loving relationship.
“You’re not looking for porn. You’re looking for someone to know you and love you at the same time,” he outlined. “That’s all you want — every man out there. But he’s scared sometimes. That’s why men put up big fronts.”
Well, it’s definitely a surprise to see a married couple abstain from sex, but we’re happy it made their marriage stronger.
