Ashley Graham knows the secret to a good marriage but the unfortunate truth is that it may already be too late for a lot of couples out there.

The plus-size model has been causing quite a storm online with a serious of provocative Instagram posts as well as a couple of choice comments during interviews.

Her most recent revelation, however, centres around the secret to a loving and successful marriage.

Graham has been married to cinematographer Justin Ervin since 2009 and, speaking in an interview with Elle, she revealed one of the key reasons behind their success together: no sex before marriage.

“My husband and I waited; call me crazy, but it worked. Our sex is amazing!,” she told the Canadian edition of the magazine.

“It made me feel like I had the power back in my dating life. He respected me more because I wasn’t willing to just give it up.”

Happily married for some seven years now, Graham is not the first big name to follow the no sex before marriage rule either.

Pop star Ciara recently married NFL star Russell Wilson, following a protracted courtship that saw the pair maintain a strict rule of celibacy.

The comments also follow hot on the heels of Pamela Anderson’s recent calls to ban pornography, claiming its use prevented couples from enjoying a healthier relationship together.
