Ashley Graham & Her Husband Say Prayer Is The Ultimate Form Of Foreplay

For Ashley and her husband, having a spiritual connection has been just as (if not more) important than their physical bond.

As children, we're taught that sex is dirty, shameful, and unladylike in the eyes of God; but as grown AF women, we understand that having a healthy sex life is nothing to be ashamed of, especially when you're married.

In a recent interview, model Ashley Graham said that sex and faith go hand in hand and says that in her household, prayer is a form of foreplay. The 32-year-old model, who has been married to her husband Justine Ervine for nearly a decade, is currently expecting her first child and says that her marriage has never been stronger. According to Ashley, the key to keeping the fire lit in their union over the past 9 years has been their connection with God. In a recent interview with Lily Singh, Ashley shared:

"[My husband Justin Ervin] and I have prayer nights together because I like to do meditations and prayer and so does he on his own — but then when we do it together, it just feels more powerful. And in that power when we're praying, it's like, 'Oh … do you feel that?'"

Last year in an interview with ELLE, the model revealed that prayer has helped she and her spouse through a number of hard times (no pun intended), as well as allowed them to become more sensitive to the voice of God:

"When you fast and you pray, it's bringing more sensitivity to hear from God. That's exactly what we wanted; we were like, 'Okay, we want more sensitivity to be able to hear from God in the big decisions that we're making.' We do it together because there's a verse in the Bible that says, 'Where two or more are gathered, He is in the midst.' So as we do it together, it just makes it even stronger."

She also had this piece of advice for married couples who may be experiencing a rut or rough patch in their relationship:

"Have sex all the time. Even if you don't feel like it, just have sex. I have found that if we haven't had sex, we get snippy, and then if we are having sex, we're all over each other. For us it's like, 'Oh, let's have sex.' And then we're just right back in a great mood."

For Ashley and her husband, having a spiritual connection has been just as (if not more) important than their physical bond and has even been effective in improving their sex life despite busy schedules and petty arguments.

"And we're like: 'Hello!' And next thing you know — after we pray, because we have priorities — we rip it off. It's a great bonding experience for both the spiritual aspect and the physical aspect."

It's my firm belief that God wants us to sex our husbands, good and hard, and this bedroom advice from Ashley might just be the blessing you didn't know your marriage needed.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
