During a special episode of Red Table Talk with Gwyneth Paltrow, Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t shy about discussing her sex life with Will Smith.The Facebook Watch show’s host spoke with Paltrow about the difficulties of maintaining a healthy sex life in marriage for the actress’s new Netflix show Sex, Love & Goop, which is now streaming. “It’s difficult,” Jada admitted to Paltrow.
“The journey is something Will and I frequently discuss. We got started in this at a very young age, 22 years old. That’s why the accountability part struck a chord with me, because I believe you expect your partner to be aware of [what you require], especially when it comes to sex. It’s as if she’s saying, ‘Well, if you love me, you should know.’ If you love me, you should be able to read my mind.’ That is a major stumbling block.”Paltrow responded, “Isn’t it strange, though? It’s as if no one can read your mind, and we’re disappointed.” In July 2020, Jada famously revealed her “entanglement” with singer August Alsina, and later invited her husband onto Red Table Talk to clear the air.Despite the fact that their episode broke Facebook viewership records, Will claims that the public did not get the full storey at the time.”The public has an impenetrable narrative,” he said.
“Once the public has made a decision, it is difficult to dislodge the images, ideas, and perceptions.” Will, who will celebrate 24 years of marriage to Jada in December, told GQ that “Jada never believed in [a] conventional marriage.”
“Jada had family members who had an unusual relationship. As a result, she grew up in a very different way than I did “He elaborated. “There were lengthy debates about what constitutes relational perfection. What is the ideal way for a couple to interact?
And for the most part of our relationship, we chose monogamy rather than thinking of it as the only form of relational perfection.” He went on, “We have given each other trust and freedom, believing that everyone must find their own path. And marriage cannot be a prison for us.
And I don’t recommend our path to anyone. This is not a path I would recommend to anyone. But the experiences that we’ve shared, the liberties that we’ve given one another, and the unconditional support that we’ve given one another, to me, are the highest definitions of love.”
