If you somehow haven't yet been afflicted with the total obsession over absurdly-hot-and-adorable married couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan that's taking over the majority of the population right now, prepare to be plagued. The stripper-turned-A-list actor just got seriously real about his sex life with his smoke show of a wife, and now we're all kinds of flustered thinking about these two babes getting it on.
Tatum was speaking to a group of women (Cosmopolitan called is "a literal sea of women") Wednesday at the Cannes Lions festivities in the south of France and, during a "steamy" Facebook Live, the actor gave a candid account of what their sex life is like.
"Me and sex are friends. We're animals," the Magic Mike actor, who's been with Jenna Dewan since they co-starred in Step Up, told the group. "It's not a means. It's something that enriches your life... it's one of the clearest ways that we communicate, it boils things down to a very primal level."
When asked about sexuality and connectivity, Tatum explained that he and his wife don't have sex to "back into" happiness. "That's how we know there's something we have to talk about, that we have to solve... whatever's between us energetically, before we can sort of get down. For lack of a better term, we don't hate f**k each other. That's just not what we do." Wowzers.
Tatum then opened up about the kind of sex they have. If you must know, it's "truly all different kinds" depending on their respective schedules and energy levels. "Sometimes it's,...Look, you gotta get this done, I gotta work. That's a real thing. To me, that's us being completely open. Being like, Look, I don't have the energy. Then you have full on, just completely, totally connected, otherworldly connections."
The actor also revealed how having a daughter has changed him ("Your life isn't yours anymore"), and how messy his wife is at home ("she'll just leave the milk out"). And, just for good measure, he gave his thoughts on pornography in America.
"I think America's a little repressed," Tatum said. "It's taboo but we like talking about it. We can't talk about it very openly. So we do it in these weird places at home. The stuff on the internet is just wild. It's out there and it's what's educating out youth and how to have sex, and that's kind of scary... kind of demeaning. It's a dominant type of porn that's out there. I don't think that's very good."
