Former “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure may be one of the most devout Christians in Hollywood, but that doesn’t mean that she is uncomfortable talking about sex and marriage.
While appearing on the “Confessions Of A Crappy Christian Podcast” hosted by Blake Guichet, Bure opened up about how she balances being a proud Christian with life as a public figure.
“[Sex] is something to be celebrated as a Christian,” Bure said. “Sex doesn’t stop once you get married. Sex is the blessing of marriage and I hate when Christians are like, ‘No! You have to pretend like you’ve never had sex’ and ‘We only know that you’ve had sex three times because you’ve had three children.’”
Bure has been married to former professional hockey player Val Bure since 1996, and they have three children: Natasha, 22, Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18.
“So sometimes there’s a skew about sex that — within the Christian community — that I get really sad about,” she added. “Because if we are to promise ourselves for one another and preach saving yourself for marriage, then sex needs to be celebrated within marriage and it’s not to be shameful.”
Bure explained that since sex education was never talked about when she was growing up, she “didn’t know anything” going into marriage.
“I lived in such a fear of like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m not supposed to be a sexual person because I have to save myself, God is going to think negatively of me if I’m having sex…’” the actress said.
Because of this, Bure was determined that her own children would not experience the same thing.
“I probably annoy my kids, again because I have talked about sex with them their whole lives,” the former “Full House” star revealed. “I just make it a part of everyday conversation.”
This comes after Bure fired back publicly when she received backlash from fans for posting a photo that showed her husband playfully cupping her breasts with his hands.
“I love the fact that so many people had an opinion on it. It made me laugh because I wasn’t trying to make a statement,” she told Fox News. “This is just how my husband and I are. You know, we adore each other and we still have fun and we’re spicy together.”
“We have a playful, loving marriage and I think that’s why we’re still married 24 years later,” Bure added. “But I did respond because I always get bummed out when people have been married for so long and then I feel like the joke is always like, ‘oh, we’re married – so that means we don’t have sex anymore.’ And it’s kind of like that a lot. And so I thought it was just a cute, funny picture and it was playful and it’s very much reflective of our personalities in real life.”
