'You know, I've had a lot of bad sex my whole life, so it's nice to have good sex now. And if you're doing sex right, then it should be messy,’ she added.
She also told the publication that she feels sexiest when she’s in control of how she presents her body, whether she’s naked or wearing a ‘ridiculous outfit’, and that her favorite part of her body is her butt.
‘It’s pretty good. Pretty perky,’ she revealed.
And in the bedroom, anything goes, as the model doesn’t believe in ‘rules’.
'You never know, you might find something that you like that you didn't think that you like. I have,’ she explained. ‘There are things that I didn't think I would like that I did and it's because I gave it a shot.’
However, Tess confessed that she hasn’t always had such a open attitude towards sex and sexuality, as being raised in Mississippi, she was taught to believe sex was ‘shameful’, especially before marriage.
‘I'm so glad that I didn't listen to that advice,’ she admitted. ‘I feel like if you have good chemistry, then sex could be good, but I need to try it before I'm married to it.
When pressed about love, Tess had a more philosophical attitude, saying that love can encompass how you feel about family and friends or about pizza.
As an advocate for body positivity, it's rare to hear Tess Holliday say anything negative about her size or shape.
However, the striking brunette has shared that she wasn't always so confident in her own skin by recently sharing a touching throwback snap of her when she was 13-years-old and desperate to fit in on Instagram.
Posting the picture alongside one from one her more recent shoots for plus-size fashion brand Eloquii, she explained that the photo on the left was taken when she was in her 'first and only beauty pageant'.
