Orlando Bloom - who is engaged to Katy Perry - believes making love to a partner is a "really important part of life" because it's such a strong way to make a connection.
He said: "I would say that sex is a really important part of life because it's a way to connect, it's a way to show intimacy. Intimacy is an incredibly important part of life because if you can be intimate with somebody, then you're blessed, right?"
After the 42-year-old actor proposed to the "Dark Horse" hitmaker earlier this year, things couldn't be better for them.
He said: "We're doing great. Being engaged is a lot of work, but we're building a castle that we can inhabit, a metaphorical castle."
And with previous failed marriages - to Miranda Kerr and Russell Brand respectively - behind them, Orlando and Katy have a realistic attitude and know things won't always be perfect in their relationship.
