Channing Tatum opens up to ELLE about stripping, monogamy, getting naked, pregnancy sex, and more in a new interview. The White House Down star, who recently welcomed his first child with wife Jenna Dewan, is asked, “Is it true that pregnant women want to have sex all the time?”

“It’s a bit of a paradox,” replies Tatum. “They’re definitely hormonally raging, but when they get further along — they’re just dealing all the time. So, yes and no.” It seems like naked bodies are frequently on display in the Tatum household. Asked about Dewan’s revelation that he takes off his clothes when he comes home, the actor says, “I don’t really know. I have a really nice back porch where the pool is. Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstairs just follows at some point.”

Tatum also incorporates the human body into his artwork. “I really love anatomy, in general. I like sculpting bodies,” explains the star, although live nude models are not on the premises. “My sculptures look like my wife. Not pregnant. [Laughs] Her old body.” But Tatum has left behind much of the lifestyle he enjoyed as a stripper. “Being in a relationship was always the endgame, but I’ve had my crazy times,” he reflects. “When I was stripping, I wasn’t with anyone. That’s not an occupation you have when you’re monogamous.”

Now that he and Dewan are together for the long haul, Tatum says that openness is what keeps the couple on track. He explains, “I think communication and being brutally honest about the things that you want—what you fantasize about, or whatever…. No matter what, talk to each other. That stuff you might be nervous to hear? You gotta want to know.”
