Jenna Dewan’s train of thought has been derailed when it comes to reaching sensible perspectives on sexuality. She wants her 5-year-old daughter to appreciate her mother as a sensual woman instead of doing what normal 5-year-olds do, like watch cartoons and complain when they’re told they can’t eat dessert before dinner. Some celebrities are so self-absorbed that they believe there’s a sense of urgency when it comes to teaching kids about sex in general. Priority lessons should be focused on never letting a stranger touch your special spot, not learning to appreciate the times your mother walked around the house without clothes. Imagine if most fathers wore that one time after shower robe malfunction that they had in front of their son like some kind of badge of honor. Those mental scars never heal. If accidentally seeing your dad’s dick may require years of therapy later on in life, I can imagine that staring at your mom’s hooha while she tells you to love where you came from would be just at traumatic for daughters. But that thought didn’t stop Dewan from stripping for Women’s Health. Probably because she feels her relevance fading with the recent divorce.
Jenna Dewan wants to get one thing straight: motherhood and sex appeal go hand in hand.
The dancer, actress, World of Dance host and mother of one opens up (and strips down) for for Women’s Health‘s annual Naked Truth issue, telling the magazine she has “never understood” the concept of why having children seems to mean “you’re supposed to leave your sexuality at the door” for women.
“I think there’s nothing sexier than becoming a mother,” says Dewan, 37. “You give life. It’s everything. And you don’t change who you are inside just because you have a kid.”
And rather than hide that sexuality from her 5-year-old daughter, Everly, with ex Channing Tatum, Dewan wants to teach her child to appreciate it.
“I want my daughter to see that and be like, ‘Wow, my mother was a fully actualized, sensual woman,’ ” says the star.
Aside from taking clothes off and saying crazy things for attention, I do understand Dewan’s concern when it comes to society expecting mothers to be tame sexual beings that never let their nip slip anymore. But things are just better that way. It’s not exactly like men avoid sexualizing women who’ve pumped a few out already. MILF is a pretty popular category online. The first female most men wanted to bang in their life has been a toss between an actress they’ve watched in a movie at their best friend’s house, or their best friend’s mother. Granted that she hasn’t let herself go like most modern moms who refused to be fat-shamed into a reasonable unoffensive shape. With all that said, I still fully support Jenna taking her clothes off. Just stop taking advice from Farrah Abraham and keep the kids out of it.
