    "I don't know. I'm not shy about it," the 37-year-old dad continued in his interview with Entertainment Tonight. "She was just like, 'What?' She needed to know just like everybody."

  • And instead of being turned off by Channing's past, let's just say Jenna didn't hold it against him (*wink*).

    "Weirdly enough, girls ask less questions than guys do," Tatum admitted. "Guys want to know everything about it, like, 'What? How much? When? Were you naked?'"

  • Because, honestly, who *would* have an issue dating a man who looks like Channing Tatum with a talent she can put to good use?

  • It's cool Channing felt comfortable enough about his stripping past to reveal it on his first date with Jenna.

    Too bad he didn't make that much money shaking for change.

    "Sadly not enough," the actor admits when asked how much he raked in as a stripper. "Like, for what I was doing for the dollar, not enough of the dollars."

  • Plus, Jenna has some moves of her own -- so there you go.

    Y'all already know they're having good sex and shaking sheets.

    ... and we're not mad. (Get your entire life.)
