How A 90-Day 'Sex Fast' Changed Terry Crews' Marriage

Sometimes sex isn't a barometer for how well the relationship's going.

When assessing the strength of his marriage, former footballer Terry Crews knows that sex isn't the only metric.

The "World's Funniest" host told HuffPost Live on Wednesday that he and his wife completed a "90-day sex fast," and that it left him "more in love" and "more turned on" than ever.

"90 days -- no sex, all relationship, all talk, all cuddle," he recounted. "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'."

According to Crews, "every man has a desire for intimacy." Unfortunately, that doesn't always result in every man attempting to forge a lasting connection with his significant other.

"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."
