I admit it. I think Sting is hot. Always have (oh, except for his Raggedy Beard period), and always will. In fact, the day I met my husband Stephen, I was so immediately smitten–and the fact that he had a “Sting-ish quality about him” didn’t hurt. (I actually did say that to him, by the way…) I’ll get into that story another day.
ANYsteamy. Sting, 59, and his wife Trudie Styler, 56, have given an interview and discuss their sex-life in rather interesting terms:
“While Sting and Styler have been together a record amount of time in celebrity years–they were married in 1992–weeks can go by when they don’t see each other. “It’s important to have frank discussions about what the other wants,” Styler says. “To be in a relationship that is like a little lifetime, that’s a challenge.”
Sting has spent his storied career touring the world, currently on the last leg of his Symphonicity tour, in which he performs his hits with a full orchestra. Styler has produced a number of films and documentaries but is now returning to her first love, acting. She says, “It’s exciting. I’ve said, ‘Okay, producing: back burner. Actor and director: front.”
So, when they do reunite, it’s quite something. “We don’t get bored,” Styler says. “Being apart juices the relationship,” Sting explains. “When we see each other, it’s romance. I don’t think pedestrian sex is very interesting. There’s a playfulness we have; I like the theater of sex. I like to look good. I like her to dress up. I like to dress her up.” What’s the most romantic thing they’ve ever done for each other? “Romantic? We like tawdry.”
I see nothing wrong with Sting and Trudie’s interview at all. I see a lot of RIGHT with it, in fact. So there.
