Alexa PenaVega: Sex is better when you’re trying for a baby

Alexa PenaVega admits that finding the motivation to have sex with her husband is like going “to the gym.”

The actress, who is married to Big Time Rush star Carlos PenaVega, explained that her relationship with Christianity has complicated her feelings about sex.

“I started trying to own the sex part of our marriage a bit more and really try to work on that,” Alexa, 34, said on Monday’s episode of the “Heaven In Your Home” podcast.

“I would enjoy it but it wasn’t this thing I craved all the time. And he’s a man so he’s like ‘I want you to want me.’”

The “Spy Kids” alum then shared how she began to work on the intimacy within her marriage.

“This is going to sound terrible but you know how you don’t necessarily want to go to the gym at the beginning, but once you start going you’re like ‘I have to go every day, this is great. I feel good, my body feels good,’” she said. “I knew I had to do this for him and it all started with one comment he made.”

“It’s almost like we think sex is bad, and [when we get married] all of a sudden sex is good. It’s very confusing,” she said.

The “Sleepover” actress wed the Nickelodeon alum, 33, in 2014. They share three children: Ocean, 6, Kingston 3, and Rio, 1.

She previously got candid about having sex while trying for a baby.

“I found there’s such a difference between having sex when you’re trying for a kid and when you aren’t,” she told Fit Pregnancy in 2016.

“Sex became so much more intimate, beautiful and passionate when we were trying. Suddenly the realization hits you: ‘Oh my God, we could be starting another life!’ That brought us so much closer.”
