12+ Celebs Who Admitted They Have To Schedule Time For Sex

Being a working adult in a relationship means conceding to a few realities. The kitchen won't always be clean, the sheets may go a little longer between washes, and yeah—sometimes sex just has to be scheduled.

These celebrities have found that making time for intimacy is better than not having any at all. Let's see who has joined over 50% of couples that write sex in the calendar.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren

Jessica Alba and her husband, Cash Warren, work hard to keep their marriage alive. She wrote:

"So, making time for our relationship in our daily routine—even though it’s surprisingly predictable and may not seem as spicy as our spontaneous pre-kiddo days—really helps keep the romance alive."

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade

This gorgeous couple is beyond busy. While Gabrielle's schedule is packed, it's harder to work around her husband's NBA commitments.

"You’ve got to space that out between games,” she said on Watch What Happens Live.

Jason Sudeikis doesn't have to schedule in gym time, because he and Olivia Wilde schedule in sex time, instead.

"The truth is, I'm not getting up an hour earlier and walking on a treadmill. I have the greatest workout partner in the world. And you don't need a gym membership for that kind of workout."

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander

Kate Upton has to work around pitcher Justin Verlander's schedule, and that has some strict rules.

For them, it's not about scheduling when to have sex, but when not to.

"There's no sex before a game -- absolutely none." She said.

Chrissy Teigan and John Legend

My favorite couple ever schedule sex around a surprisingly thing—and it isn't their kids.

"We're so full and we eat very late, around 10:30 or 11 p.m., because my meals tend to take a very long time," she told Harper's Bazaar Singapore.

"We’ve very much into, like, middle-of-the-night, morning and random daytime sex -- because that’s how important food is."

Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

Christina her now-ex, Jordon Bratman, dedicated a whole day a week for intimacy.

She told Ellen Degeneres that they instituted "Naked Sunday," where they would stay home and do everything in the nude.

Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Back when Khloé and Lamar were still married, they scheduled in sex for a very specific (and familiar) reason: to try and get pregnant!

While that marriage didn't result in a child, her relationship with ex Tristan Thompson did.

Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich

During the long-distance portion of their relationship, Julianne and Brooks scheduled a different kind of session: phone sex.

"But I'm really bad at it … I'll get halfway through and start laughing," she said.

Angelique Cabral and Jason Osborn

This Life in Pieces actress has no problem scheduling date nights, so scheduling sex was a no-brainer.

She told US Weekly, "We, like, put it in [the books] so that we can make sure that we don’t lose our adult time. It’s the first thing that kind of goes by the wayside."

Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum

Please, be gentle. I'm still not over the fact that they broke up. Before they divorced, Jenna and Channing didn't schedule sex—they scheduled couple time. However...

"I have friends who do this [schedule sex]; it’s on the calendar. We’ve never done that — it might actually be a good idea." She told Health magazine.

Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker

Musician Jessie James Decker and her husband, Eric, don't pull out their calendar apps—but they do plan ahead.

"I'll send him a message and be like, 'Babe, it's on tonight.' Life gets really crazy with kids and schedules are hard, but couples need to be intimate. You have to find time to connect with your partner." She said.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
