Full House's Candace Cameron Bure calls sex 'blessing of marriage' that's 'NOT shameful' after backlash for racy photo
CANDACE Cameron Bure said having sex is the “blessing of marriage” after she was slammed for posting a “racy” photo with her husband of-24-years.
The 44-year-old Full House star preached making love should be “celebrated as a Christian” and insisted there is nothing “shameful” about the act.
The actress went on the Crappy Christian which often tackles various stigmas those in the religion face.
Candace came on the Let’s Talk About Sex episode and did not hold back when asked about getting intimate with her hunky hockey player hubby, Valeri Bure.
She told host Blake Guichet: “This is something to be celebrated as a Christian. Sex doesn’t stop once you get married.
“Sex is the blessing of marriage and I hate when Christians are like, ‘No! You have to pretend like you’ve never had sex.’
“And ‘We only know that you’ve had sex three times because you’ve had three children.’”
The former child actor then said she believes theres a “skew about sex” within the “Christian community” that she gets “really sad about.”
“If we are to promise ourselves for one another and preach saving yourself for marriage, then sex needs to be celebrated within marriage and it’s not to be shameful,” she added.
Candace admitted when she first tied-the-knot with the retired NHL star in 1996 at the age of 20, she knew “nothing” about sex.
“I lived in such a fear of like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m not supposed to be a sexual person because I have to save myself, God is going to think negatively of me if I’m having sex,” the blonde beauty reflected.
She then said even during “intercourse, it’s very difficult to flip that switch.”
However, Candace wants the three children she shares with Valeri, 46, to be raised with more of an open mind.
“I probably annoy my kids, again because I have talked about sex with them their whole lives.
“I just make it a part of everyday conversation,” the proud mama added.
The former View co-host shares sons Lev, 20, and Maksim, 18, along with doppleganger daughter Natasha, 22, with the Russian athlete.
Her 20-year-old son, Lev, recently proposed to his girlfriend, Taylor Hutchison, in late August.
Candace’s latest comments come after she received a wave of backlash for a playful snap on Instagram that showed Valeri resting his hand firmly on her boob.
Despite numerous comments claiming the picture was “inappropriate” for a “woman of faith,” the TV star clapped back at haters and made it clear she was NOT apologetic.
Standing by her original post, the actress took to her Instagram Stories to call out those piling on her.
She said in a series of videos: "For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband's hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it's my husband.
"We have so much fun together. He can touch me any time he wants, and I hope he does.
"This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about.”
Candace claimed that "most" of her fans loved the cheeky post, which she had shared with Val's “permission".
"I'm sorry if it offended you — I'm actually not sorry," she said with a laugh.
