Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum have proven to be one of the strongest, lasting couple in the industry, and we think we know why...sex!

Time and time again the pair have opened up about their marriage and noted that one of the most important facets of their relationship is their sex life. Now, Jenna covers the January issue of Cosmopolitan magazine and gets candid about why the sex is so good.

"I've always been a very sexual person," she revealed. "We definitely have a very happy and healthy [sex life]."

She further explained, "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."

Perhaps that's a quality dancers like Jenna and Channing can sense about one another. From the start of their relationship, the two hit it off based solely on vibes—before they'd ever even kissed!

Jenna recalls the moment her now-hubby approached her in their hotel and admitted he wanted to be with her and nobody else.

"It was two nights of being weird. We hadn't even kissed," she remembered. "And then he went out partying with a bunch of dancers. His room was right above mine, and he came down drunk with a sombrero on, banging on my door."

LOL! That's a picture and a half, isn't it? She continued, "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."

And thanks to that funny yet totally adorable story, we continue to believe in love.

Meanwhile, Channing has also talked to Cosmo about the importance of sex in his marriage. During an interview with former Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles, he explained, "Me and sex are friends."

Fortunately, he elaborated, "It's not a means. It should be something that enriches your life. It shouldn't be the only reason you're in a relationship."

He admitted that he sometimes lets his wife take the reigns in the sack (noting that she's quite "athletic") but continued, "We get down. Me and Jenna have a great sex life. We communicate very well."

Noted!
