Bow-chick-a-bow-bow…we love that Jen G. has no problem admitting that sex with her hot hubby is the best kind of therapy!

Yeah, can’t say we blame you for wanting to steal some ‘alone’ time with Ben Affleck, Jen. Kudos to you for realizing that one of the best ways to keep things fresh is to spend some quality time in the sack!

“You steal the time,” Jen, 37, confides in the new issue of Parade Magazine. “You steal a date, you steal a kiss, you steal a whisper. You sit next to each other on the couch with computers on your laps. After the kids are asleep you…well, you know,” she grins. Yeah, WE know, Jen.

“Whatever it is,” she continues, “You slip away for a night, which we’ve only just now done for the first time. Of course, I call home while we’re away [to check on her daughters, 4-year-old Violet and Seraphina, 1]. Ben would be surprised if I didn’t.”

But Jen wasn’t always so empowered, especially after a failed marriage to actor Scott Foley. “I realized I needed to be more like my character in Alias, who was so powerful and confident and an inspiration to me,” she says. “I understood very well how to be nice and how to take care of people. I didn’t know how to ask for anything that I needed. It was important to balance it out.”

We think you’re doing just fine, Jen – and our guess is that Ben, 37, agrees. Especially when that ‘balance’ you speak of occurs in the boudoir!
