trudie-styler-sting-harpers-bazaar.jpgRocker Sting and his wife of 18 years Trudie Styler did a racy photoshoot and interview for the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar, in which they talk about their secret to keeping the fire and passion in their relationship.

"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."

"Being apart juices the relationship," Sting says. "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 ... Romantic? We like tawdry."

The couple goes on to talk about their six children, their charity work and fashion. But we think the sex part is easily the most interesting. In Hollywood years, they've been married forever. Read the full interview here.

Styler and Sting have been married for 18 years, but have been together for 30. Trudie is an English actress, director and producer.

Congrats to them on their healthy sex life.
