Jada Pinkett Smith wants women to have candid conversations about how the clean their vaginas.
The show host afraid spoke about this on her Red Table Talk series, where she addresses contemporary issues with her daughter Willow, and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
“We are going to steam our vaginas. Yes, we’re gonna steam our vaginas on camera,” Pinkett Smith said at the top of the broadcast. “I ordered some kits from a really beautiful young Black woman who owns her own business. So we’re gonna head on up and we’re gonna get started. Let’s go get steamed, ladies!”
The women discussed the benefits of the age-old practice, and how it is important for woman to celebrate their anatomy despite it being considered “taboo.”
“I’m sure boys sit around all day talking about their penises,” Pinkett Smith said. “I mean, that’s why I’m telling you right now I don’t want to hear nothing about this show. It being TMI and all that, ’cause if you can listen to all these little rap artists talk and abuse the vagina, you sure as hell can watch women give it honor and praise. And spend quality time, so I don’t want to hear it. They’ll be like, ‘It’s TMI. Oh, my God.’ And I don’t really care because we have to change the narrative around the vagina, and women have to take it back.”
