The 'Loose Women' panelist and her beau both have children, Stacey has sons Zach, nine, and Leighton, five, from two previous relationships, and Joe has 10-year-old son Harry with Emma Sophocleous, and so they often go around to one another's house for nights of passion to avoid getting interrupted by their kids.
Stacey spilled to The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ''Both Joe and I have kids so we don't have conventional dates.
''It's about fitting in alone time when we can.
''I get my mum round to babysit, sneak out to Joe's, get back before the kids wake up and get them breakfast like nothing's happened.
''Joe also comes over to mine for sleepovers. We put the kids down and then have a bath together, just the two of us. I really value that.''
And when they are at home, Stacey can at least snuggle with the former soap star because her brood have their own bedrooms.
She said: ''The kids have their own room now so Joe and I can have a spoon.
''There's obviously no romance when you wake up with a kid's foot in your face, or when you're sweating because there are four of you in the bed. It's nice having just Joe in my bed.''
Stacey's secret sex confession comes after she admitted she worries that her libido isn't ''high enough''.
The brunette beauty reads about the love lives of other women of a similar age, many of whom have a greater appetite for sex, and Stacey doesn't feel her own love life is as action-packed.
Speaking candidly, Stacey explained: ''I worry that mine's not high enough. I'm 28, don't get me wrong, I love it with [Joe Swash]...
''The problem is that girls my age, everyone's out there doing it every day and it's all exciting, so I feel like mine isn't like that. I'd do it every day if I could.''
Stacey has been dating the 35-year-old actor since the end of 2015, and she is seemingly keen to take their relationship to the next level in the near future by getting hitched and having a child together.
