One of reality TV’s most loved personalities, Coco Austin, says her trick to a healthy sex life is shoes.

“Ice [T, her rapper husband] is really into shoes. He connects to shoes in a really sexy way. So I always leave a pair of high heels next to the bed, just in case there is an occasion when we are watching TV and we get in the mood,” she said with a slight giggle.

Austin is having a hi-tech conversation with City Press?–?she sends a voice note in response to emailed questions.

Austin rose to fame in part because of her relationship with Ice-T?–?a union that garnered the couple a successful reality show on E! Entertainment.

Next month, South African fans will get a chance to meet the couple as they headline the annual Sexpo exhibition in Johannesburg.

“South Africans have been asking for years on my website for me to come and meet them and I just haven’t had the opportunity,” she said.

Austin said when the sex toy manufacturer, CalExotics, approached her, she jumped at the chance to come to South Africa.

“I’m just so glad that CalExotics are bringing me out there.”

The reality TV starlet, who has been with Ice-T for more than a decade, is very open about their sex life?–?and the couple are always on hand to offer sex advice to their fans.

She said women who are trying to keep the fires burning in the bedroom need to find out what their partner likes. “If your partner likes lingerie, then buy a few sexy pieces.”

Austin, a model, is never shy?–?on or off camera.

She revealed that another trick to having a healthy sex life is confidence.

“Confidence is a real biggie. If you are not confident, you are not going to want to be around anyone in a sexual way. I always tell women that you’ve gotta be confident about some part of your body,” she said.

Once you have a part of your body that you are confident with, she said, accentuate it.

“If it’s your elbows, then wear something that shows off your elbows. And cover the rest up.” Also, find a part that your partner likes and show that off. For women who are a little self-conscious about their weight, Austin said they should shrug off this complex.

“I know weight is an issue with many women. But men don’t really care.”

If you’re not too comfortable in your skin, then have dim lighting in the bedroom or light some candles.

Great health is a sure way to have a great sex life?– and that’s particularly true as you get older.

“I know from getting older that you need to be more in shape.”
