Eight years probably feels like a long time to most folks, but in the lifespan of celebrity marriages, it's an eternity. This month, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum celebrated their eighth anniversary together and proved that things aren't cooling off any time soon. The duo has been forthright about their sex lives over the years, never shying away from offering advice or sharing a confessional story or two with their fans.

It stands to reason that Jenna, as a dancer, would prioritize being in tune with her body, but it turns out that hubby Channing is the same way — perhaps for the same reason, as the two met while filming the 2006 dance movie Step Up. "…I’ve always been a very sexual person,” Dewan told Cosmopolitan. “Something about being a dancer connects you to your physical body. It’s primal, earthy, sexual energy by nature. You feel your body in a certain way... Channing is very much the same way. He’s very in tune with that.”
Both Channing and Jenna admit that they had an instant attraction when meeting years ago, but both were hesitant to admit it. These days, they're much better communicators, both in the bedroom and out: "We get down. Me and Jenna have a great sex life... We communicate very well," Tatum related to Cosmopolitan during an interview.
The couple admitted that though aligning their schedules could be stressful, they haven't resorted to putting sex on the calendar... yet. But nor are they opposed, and neither are we. Scheduling sex is actually a great tip to prioritize connection in couples, and can be a real turn-on, too. The couple admitted they could see themselves scheduling sex in the future. "We are not sex schedulers — not yet! Give us a couple more years. Maybe with child number two," Jenna told Redbook. She went on to say that keeping variety present in their sex life is important for all involved: "People always ask, ‘Do you do anything to keep it fresh for your man?’ I hate that question. I’m like, ‘No. Why is it for your man?’ I do things to keep it fresh for myself... If you feel sexy, then it’s good for you.”
Jenna has proven time and time again that she can do incredible things with her body... and Channing Tatum admits it's a strength he sometimes takes advantage of. When a bit of role-reversal is needed, Dewan steps up: "I just lay there ... She's really athletic," he explained, leaving just a bit to the imagination.
Before the Golden Globes, Tatum posted an Insta snap of Jenna napping in the nude...with apparent appreciation for his wife's incredible figure. It's undeniable that she looks gorgeous, and while it may be a bit unorthodox, it's certainly one way to remind your partner what they're missing!
