Supermodel Ashley Graham has long since been a spokesperson for being yourself. The plus-size model has made a name for herself by letting her wild child personality shine through in all she does, including when she’s stripping down for the camera. So when she spoke with Elle magazine about her relationship with her hubby, Justin Ervin, it may have surprised people to find out that they waited until marriage to have sex for the first time. But, according to Ashley, that’s actually the thing that has made their connection so strong.

“Something that it did for us was build up our friendship, and it also built up our trust and communication,” Ashley explained about their dedication to abstaining from sex until they tied the knot. “Of course, we were sexually attracted to each other — we would make out heavily. All those things were there. I wasn’t worried about, ‘What’s sex gonna be like with him?’ It was more, ‘Do I trust him? Is he someone I want to be with for the rest of my life?'” Fair point, Ash!

Considering the couple has gotten the “trust” part out of the way, Ashley isn’t shy about letting the world know how useful the couple’s sexual practices can be to them. For example, you and your husband — y’all in a fight? “Just have sex,” would be the 31-year-old’s advice.

“Have sex all the time. Even if you don’t feel like it, just have sex.” We have a feeling she’s not wrong here, guys. This might truly be some Einstein s–t. “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,” Ashley explained to the publication. “For us, it’s like, ‘Oh, let’s have sex.’ And then we’re just right back in a great mood.”

Ashley and Justin have clearly gone through great lengths to set up a lasting foundation before throwing caution to the wind and getting down and dirty together. We gotta say, that’s something to admire. This is definitely a couple to watch, y’all!
