If you are not con­fi­dent, you are not go­ing to want to be around any­one in a sex­ual way

COCO AUSTIN

One of re­al­ity TV’s most loved per­son­al­i­ties, Coco Austin, says her trick to a healthy sex life is shoes.

“Ice [T, her rap­per hus­band] is re­ally into shoes. He con­nects to shoes in a re­ally sexy way. So I al­ways leave a pair of high heels next to the bed, just in case there is an oc­ca­sion when we are watch­ing TV and we get in the mood,” she said with a slight gig­gle.

Austin is hav­ing a hi-tech con­ver­sa­tion with City Press – she sends a voice note in re­sponse to emailed ques­tions.

Austin rose to fame in part be­cause of her re­la­tion­ship with Ice-T – a union that gar­nered the cou­ple a suc­cess­ful re­al­ity show on E! Entertainment.

Next month, South African fans will get a chance to meet the cou­ple as they head­line the an­nual Sexpo ex­hi­bi­tion in Jo­han­nes­burg.

“South Africans have been ask­ing for years on my web­site for me to come and meet them and I just haven’t had the op­por­tu­nity,” she said.

Austin said when the sex toy man­u­fac­turer, CalEx­otics, ap­proached her, she jumped at the chance to come to South Africa.

“I’m just so glad that CalEx­otics are bring­ing me out there.”

The re­al­ity TV star­let, who has been with Ice-T for more than a decade, is very open about their sex life – and the cou­ple are al­ways on hand to of­fer sex ad­vice to their fans.

She said women who are try­ing to keep the fires burn­ing in the bed­room need to find out what their part­ner likes. “If your part­ner likes lin­gerie, then buy a few sexy pieces.” Austin, a model, is never shy – on or off cam­era. She re­vealed that another trick to hav­ing a healthy sex life is con­fi­dence.

“Con­fi­dence is a real big­gie. If you are not con­fi­dent, you are not go­ing to want to be around any­one in a sex­ual way. I al­ways tell women that you’ve gotta be con­fi­dent about some part of your body,” she said.

Once you have a part of your body that you are con­fi­dent with, she said, ac­cen­tu­ate it.

“If it’s your el­bows, then wear some­thing that shows off your el­bows. And cover the rest up.” Also, find a part that your part­ner likes and show that off. For women who are a lit­tle self-con­scious about their weight, Austin said they should shrug off this com­plex.

“I know weight is an is­sue with many women. But men don’t re­ally care.”

If you’re not too com­fort­able in your skin, then have dim light­ing in the bed­room or light some can­dles.

Great health is a sure way to have a great sex life – and that’s par­tic­u­larly true as you get older.

“I know from get­ting older that you need to be more in shape,” she said.
