Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced their split on Monday night, but the duo left behind a plethora knowledge on how to keep a couple's sex lives healthy.
Click through for some of their most memorable, candid quotes about their sex lives.
Being in Tune With Their Bodies Comes With the Territory
It stands to reason that Dewan, as a dancer, would prioritize being in tune with her body, but it turns out that Tatum 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."prevnext

However, they're became better communicators, both in the bedroom and out.

Scheduling Sex Is an Option
The couple admitted that though aligning their schedules could be stressful, they haven't resorted to putting sex on the calendar. But nor were 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," Dewan 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."prevnext

Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now."
"There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible," the couple said. "We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly."
They continued, "We won't be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family's privacy."prevnext
