“I’ve always been a very sexual person. We definitely have a very happy and healthy [sex life],”she spilled. “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.”

Back in June, the Magic Mike actor joked about their time behind closed doors during a Facebook Live interview with Cosmopolitan. “I just lay there. I just lay down; sometimes I nap. Yeah, she’s really athletic. We get down!” he said at the time. “We truly have all different kinds of sex. Sometimes it’s like, ‘Look, you gotta get this done. I gotta go to work.’ And that’s a real thing. To me, that’s us being completely open. … Then you have full-on, just completely totally connected otherworldly connections.”

The couple, both 36, met while starring together in 2006’s Step Up. They initially decided to not jump into a romance but changed their minds when he got inebriated one night.

“It was two nights of being weird. We hadn’t even kissed. And then he went out partying with a bunch of dancers,” the Witches of East End actress recalled. “His room was right above mine, and he came down drunk with a sombrero on, banging on my door. He was like, ‘I couldn’t stop thinking about you. Let’s do this. I just want to be with you.’ From that point forward, we were together.”

The lovebirds went on to tie the knot in July 2009 and welcomed daughter Everly, now 3, in May 2013. During her downtime, Dewan Tatum likes to meditate using the Reiki technique at their Beverly Hills home.

“I like to play around. I’ll do it with Evie when she’s getting overwhelmed. She thinks it’s so funny,” she told the mag. “It’s an ancient healing modality from Japan where you tap into a conscious energy conflict. Chan loves it. He gets all the nice side effects of having a hippie wife.”
