Courteney Cox and David Arquette talk about their sex life
Courteney Cox has revealed one of the problems in her marriage to David Arquette was that he constantly wanted sex.
The actress insists her estranged husband has a strong libido and his irrepressible sex drive was a factor in their decision last October to have a trial separation after 11 years of marriage.
Referring to David’s recent confession that he hit on her during a trip to Disney World with their six-year-old daughter Coco, she said: “It was early in the morning. This is one of our problems in our relationship. Whenever I would need consoling from David, he could not literally put his arm around me for one second without completely getting a boner … So [Disney World] just wasn’t the right time and I don’t want to confuse the issue. We’re going through a hard time.”
Courteney made the confession during a joint interview with David on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show, and during the chat the 39-year-old seemed to suggest his 46-year-old wife was through with the marriage.
Speaking to the former ‘Friends’ star, he said: “I think you’re over it, baby. You just need to admit it and we just need to figure out next steps.”
To which she replied: “Wow, that’s heavy. You can’t count [Disney World] as the place where you know I’m not into you. I had just woken up. I don’t think [sexual attraction] is the issue. The truth of the matter is that we love each other so much. We have such affection for each other but we are very different … I’m a homebody. David doesn’t drink anymore, he’s completely sober, but he likes to go out and dance. I don’t want to inhibit him in his life. He really is a very gregarious guy, he’s very outgoing. I’m much more of an introvert.”
Courteney – who appears in new horror movie ‘Scream 4’ with David, who completed a stint in rehab for alcoholism – also insisted she hadn’t dated anyone since agreeing to the split, despite being romantically linked to her ‘Cougar Town’ co-star Josh Hopkins – who she recently went on vacation with to the Caribbean.
When asked if she’d had sex since the break-up, she bluntly said: “I have not had sex.”
