Who knew that taking the sex out of your relationship would be a good thing? Terry Crews, that’s who! The actor recently completed a 90-day ‘sex fast’ with his wife, and believe it or not, he says it left their marriage “strong than ever.” Get the surprising details here!
Going without sex for 90-days to improve your marriage? It may sound likes a counterproductive strategy (or perhaps even a total nightmare), but to hear Terry Crews, 47, tell it, it’s a major game-changer! The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star recently revealed that he and his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, 49, decided to abstain from sex for 90 days to help them reconnect, which he says actually left their relationship strong than ever! Okay, T.Crews — you have our attention.
The former footballer recently opened up to HuffPo Live and explained how he and his wife decided to partake in a 90-day “sex fast,” abstaining from all sexual activity for a full three months in hopes of improving their marriage of 25-years. “90 days—no sex, all relationship, all talk, all cuddle,” he told the site. “I found that at the end of that 90 days I was more in love. More turned on. I knew who she was. 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.'”
As it turns out, the fast was a necessary move for the couple who, Terry admits, have experienced their fair share of ups and downs over the years. “It was on the rocks a couple times,” he said. “It was sitting up there about broken and messed up.”
Still, Terry says his desire for true intimacy is something that all men feel deep down, whether they admit to it or not. “You’re not looking for porn. You’re looking for someone to know you and love you at the same time,” he said. “That’s all you want—every man out there. But he’s scared sometimes. That’s why men put up big fronts…There’s a moment that they’re scared that if you find out who they really are, you won’t want to be there.”
