Sting & Trudie Styler: Still Sexy After 30 Years

Sting and Trudie Styler

One of the music world's most enduring couples dish on the secrets to keeping love alive.

For the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, Sting and Trudie Styler sat down for a revealing interview about their nearly 30-year relationship.

Although the legend of Sting's marathon Tantric sex sessions was debunked a couple of years ago, he and the Missus can still rock and roll in the bedroom.  According to the fiftysomething couple, the key to sustaining their 18-year marriage is to keep things playful and, well, downright dirty.  Sting's Tantric Sex Rumors Are Totally Bogus

On commitment:

"We treat every day as it comes...Relationships aren't easy, and I don't think they're particularly natural, but we're lucky because we actually like each other. We love each other—that's a given—but Trudie lights my world up when she comes into a room. I don't take her for granted." — Sting

"It's important to have frank discussions about what the other wants...To be in a relationship that is like a little lifetime, that's a challenge." — Trudie

On romance:

"Romantic? We like tawdry." — Sting

On sex:

"Being apart juices the relationship...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." — Sting
