The wisdom among Sting and Trudie Styler's bedroom frolics

Given the belief by gossip column writers that the public has an insatiable appetite for the bedroom secrets of celebrities, it has always struck me as odd they turn almost prudish when confronted by the obvious lust Sting and Trudie Styler holds for the other.
When referred to separately Sting is an ever-popular rock singer and Styler is a documentary film maker and actress. But together the couple are derided for their marathon tantric sex sessions; the ridicule failing to disguise the envy.
They can expect more of the same after a heavy-breathing interview and saucy Terry Richardson fashion shoot in the current edition of Harper’s Bazaar.
Their ‘offence’ is that both are approaching 60 and though have been together 30 years, married since 1992, and collected six children along the way, they not only love but still fancy each other.
Of course it helps they are fabulously rich and in great physical shape – but so have many other showbiz couples and yet their passion dimmed.
Inevitably the raunchier parts of the joint interview catch the eye. “Being apart juices up the relationship,” says Sting. “I like her to dress up. I like to dress her up." He admits a taste for the tawdry. It is just as well that Styler believes, "It's important to have frank discussions about what the other wants.”
It’s a sad fact in my life I’ve known more marriages founder than hang together. You never know what goes on behind people’s curtains but as far as I can tell few couples that survive into 30-year-plus territory still have the ‘hots’ for each other that Sting and Styler enjoy.
You may think this is a good thing – after all who wants to catch their grandparents in flagrante delicto? I would disagree but that’s a subject for a separate post.
In the Harper’s interview Sting’s observation, “I don’t take her granted” is about as good advice how to keep a relationship strong (and it works the other way for women too) as you’ll ever get regardless of whether you want to be swinging from the chandeliers at 70.
