We have to say it: Channing Tatum, that's a bit too TMI about your sex life

Are we really all that surprised by Jenna & Channing Tatum's sex life, though? Like really?

There's no denying the fact that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum are straight-up adorable together. Ever since those two first got together on the set of the 2006 film Step Up, they've had the moves only for one another. And now, it seems as if Jenna Dewan-Tatum's dancing abilities have translated well in the bedroom — and Channing wants everyone to know it.

“I just lay there. I just lay down, sometimes I nap," Tatum revealed during an interview on Facebook Live with Cosmopolitan magazine. "Yeah, she’s really athletic. We get down!" But that was just the beginning of their marriage's intimate details. "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," he continued. "Then you have full-on, just completely totally connected otherworldly connections." Already feel like you've heard enough? Well, there's even more: "We communicate very well. We don’t hate fuck each other. That’s not what we do."

Yep, it doesn't really get much more candid than that. And, believe it or not, this isn't even the first time that the celebrity couple's sex life has been in the spotlight. In fact, these two have hinted on the details of their life together in past interviews as well, including when Channing Tatum told U.K.'s Metro back in 2013 that Jenna has "watched every cut of Magic Mike and gave notes upon notes" on his moves. Or that time that Channing got real with the rules to keeping up a relationship in 2013's Elle magazine in saying, "I think communication and being brutally honest about the things that you want — what you fantasize about, or whatever."

So, why the sudden bursts of personal information? Being that he was People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2012 — and the star of that year's Magic Mike inspired from his own background as a stripper — it's pretty clear as to where his confidence comes from. And, when it comes to Jenna Dewan-Tatum's side of the relationship, the dancer-turned-actress isn't so innocent either. While she may not speak out as candidly as her husband, Jenna was sure to show off her killer lap dance moves in an episode of Spike TV's show Lip Sync Battle. And, seriously, it's hard to forget these moves.

But now I've just got one question on my mind: Where should these two draw a line? Is there a limit to how much celebrities should share about their personal lives in the bedroom? Yes, there is some kind of separation that comes with being a mere mortal reading about the lives of celebrities. And perhaps hearing about the personal details of their lives does humanize them a little bit. However, at the same time, if I don't want to listen to my best friend talk about it, then odds are it's too personal for me to know about people I've never even met. And at this point, whether you feel either way, nobody really cares.

Comments like these are just coming with a changing territory. And knowing those two's publicity track record so far, the stories will probably keep on coming. So embrace it. We've officially entered a world where the word "taboo" no longer applies.

Do you think there's a line that needs to be drawn?
