Jada Pinkett Smith is dishing major details into her sex life with husband, Will Smith.
The actress who has been an open book when it comes to her life and relationships, specifically her marriage to husband Will Smith via her show, ‘Red Table Talk,’ sat down with actress and Goop Founder Gywneth Paltrow on the Wednesday episode of the show.
The women discussed the challenges of maintaining a good sex life as well as communicating personal needs to your partner.
“It’s hard. The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey. We started in this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old. That’s why the accountability part really hit for me because I think you expect your partner to know [what you need], especially when it comes to sex. It’s like, ‘Well, if you love me, you should know. If you love me, you should read my mind.’ That’s a huge pitfall, Jada said.
Jada, who has been married to Will for 23 years, agreed with Gwyneth when she said a person can feel “crushed” when their partner isn’t able to understand what’s inside their head.
“You tell me what you need. Tell me what you want, and on top of it, I know that I have to be accountable to do the same…I really try. It’s uncomfortable, but it’s deeply healthy, and I think around sex, because it’s something that we don’t talk about and there’s so much fantasy around it,” Jada said.
Jada and Will have been open about their unconventional marriage for some time now. Back in July 2020, during an episode of Red Table, Talk, she revealed that she and Will had temporarily separated a few years back and confirmed her affair with August Alsina, who had publicly blasted their hidden relationship.
In a September interview with GQ magazine, Will also shared that he had also engaged in other sexual relationships outside his marriage..
