Question: Assalam u Alikum i got engaged in January 2016 and then did nikah in July 2016 we didnt spoke to each other between this time and my wife is a Alima and she teaches in a madrasah one day she said about her family friend gave birth to a child and she asked me how babies are born and then later i found she doesnt know nothing about marriage life like sex so is it ok if i talk to her about that on the phone cz we are not together yet thanks
If as you say you are a married couple, then it is fine for you to speak of sexual intimacy with your spouse on phone or private chat sessions. Neither of you should have no inhibition in such matters between both of you.
Islam celebrates sexuality. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "You stand to gain spiritual blessings in establishing intimacy with your spouses. Upon hearing this, the companions asked, “How can we be rewarded in fulfilling our physical desires? He said, “Even as you will be punished for seeking  sexual fulfillment outside the fold of marriage, Allah will reward if you seek the same lawfully (as married couples).”
If your wife has no knowledge of such matters, it is important for her to get educated on such crucial issues. Here are two good books I would recommend for both of you to read together. The first one would be a great resource to discuss such matters. So get them and try to educate yourself and your spouse.
Here are the two books:
The Muslim Marriage Guide Book by Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood
Blissful Marriage: A Practical Islamic Guide by Ekram Beshir.
I pray to Allah to bless your marriage and grant you joy in your relationship.
