Caprice Bourret has urged couples to ensure they fit in regular sex in order to keep the magic in their marriage “alive”. 

The reality star and model, who runs a lingerie and swimwear brand, married her British financier husband, Ty Comfort, in a beautiful ceremony back in 2019. And it seems that despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic throughout the past year, the couple have continued to make time for romance. Recent research has suggested that half of couples are having the same sex problem, whilst another study has suggested two-thirds of long-term relationships have the same thing in common - being BFFs with a partner. 

Yet it seems Candice has found her own way to ensure the passion stays alive in her marriage. As reported by The Mirror, Caprice got candid during an interview with OK! Magazine as she reflected on her sex life with Ty since they tied the knot two years ago. 

“You can’t say ‘I’m tired’ or ‘I have a headache’ – no!” she declared, before reportedly going on to reveal her ultimate advice for fellow couples. “Take one for the team, it’s between five to ten minutes of your life.” 

“If the sex goes in the relationship, it’s done and dusted. You have to keep it alive,” she continued. “And if you can settle down from your day and enjoy it, it’s fricking awesome. It’s the best stress reliever.”

Discussing the impact of the pandemic upon her and Ty, Candice Bourret revealed that after the "mentally tough" lockdowns, the couple have relocated to sunny Ibiza and are now enjoying an active sex life like never before. 

“During the first lockdown I was very active – I was chilled and creative,” she said, as she recalled how the style of their intimacy changed between lockdowns. “The second was a little bit more stressful, but now we’re in Ibiza, it’s like rabbits.”

Caprice Bourret and Ty Comfort first met in 2011 after being introduced by a mutual friend and have since welcomed two beautiful sons, Jett and Jax, both 8-years-old.

Asked whether marrying Ty changed the dynamics of their relationship, Caprice shared that after initially believing marriage was just a “piece of paper”, she now realises how much it means to them both.

“I always thought, why do I need a piece of paper to validate my relationship?” she explained. “But to say, “This is my husband,” it’s been a real game-changer. Even if we have fights, being married is a different mentality. There’s no saying, “I’m leaving.” When you’re married, that’s it.”

Candice added, “I love being married. I love building a life with my husband and I’m going to be with him for the rest of my life. I love having children with him and I love everything about being married.”

And when it comes to the importance of finding the "right one" for you, Candice expressed her belief that this can be a truly transformative experience for the partners involved. 

“It’s the most beautiful thing when you find the right one. It’s made me better, stronger and more successful,” she powerfully declared.
