Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian Tried a ‘Sex Fast’ to Improve Their Relationship

Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker and his fiancé, reality TV star and entrepreneur Kourtney Kardashian, aren’t usually particularly shy when it comes to the physical side of their relationship. When they first got together, pretty much every date they went on was a very, very public display of affection. Not to mention the many Instagram odes to each other’s bodies.

But according to Kardashian, nothing makes you enjoy sex with your partner more than… not having sex with your partner. The couple recently went on a cleanse inspired by Ayevurdic medicine which purports to draw toxins from the body through an array of techniques including herbal supplements, meditation, massage, and dietary adjustment. In Kardashian and Barker’s case, this process also included going on a “sex fast” where they abstained from sexual contact with each other. (How long this sex detox went on for is unclear.)

“Oh my God, it was crazy,” Kardashian told Bustle. “But it actually made everything better. Like, if you can’t have caffeine, when you have your first matcha, it’s so good.”

Kardashian shared this while discussing Poosh, the lifestyle website she oversees which has been known to explore the subject of “vibrators and porn” in depth—although she was keen to clarify that she and Barker have no need for those kinds of aids in the bedroom.

“What about people who are just so into each other and don’t need any of that?” She said. “Like, should we write a story on that?”
