No one could ever accuse Tia Mowry-Hardrict of being easy. The actress recently admitted to OK Magazine that when she and now-husband Cory Hardrict first started going out, she waited a year before even kissing the man or becoming intimate with him.
"I think the one thing I did do was I just held out," she admits. "We weren't physical, we didn't do anything for a while to make sure this was something special and this was something real. That's what we did…we courted each other for about a year. We didn't go on dates with just him and I, there were other people around. We waited a year to kiss. That's basically what I did."
And it seemed to have worked. They've been together for 14 years and have an adorable 2-year-old son, Cree. On her reality show with twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley, she can often be seen discovering new ways to spice up the relationship in the bedroom.
"We've been together for 14 years and we had a baby and it changes the dynamic of a relationship a little bit," says Tia. "I do believe you have to keep it alive and fresh and I did take up a burlesque dance among other things. And there's this thing called the v-steam, which is a steam for your va-jay-jay and let's just say my husband said it worked."
