Willow Smith is opened up about how she views relationships in an eye-opening Red Table Talk discussion on Social media Monday. The daughter of Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, 17, revealed her outlook on monogamous relationships during a discussion about s-x with her mother, grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and best friend Telana Lynum. “Let me ask you guys a question because your generation is known as the ‘hook-up generation,’” Jada, 46, began.
“How do you guys feel about monogamy?”
“That feeling of ‘you’re my one and my only, there’s no one else’… for me, that would not work,” Willow revealed. “It’s a tricky one, and I tell you I think about it a lot with married women who are in this monotony of feeling this obligation of having to have s-x because they’re in a monogamous relationship,” Jada said.
“But sometimes you just don’t feel like it,” she continued. “Never feel obligated. It’s because women fear losing their men if s-x isn’t good or you’re not having enough.” Earlier in the episode, Willow admitted to her mother that her introduction to was walking in on the actress and Smith when she was younger.
“My introduction to s-x was obviously walking in on you and Daddy,” Willow said. “When the h-ll did you walk in on us?” Jada responded, appearing shocked. “I was in Utah… not Utah. Aspen,” Willow said. “I was going downstairs to get some juice and I saw for a little moment and I ran away. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is so crazy. What did I just see?’” Recalling the incident, Willow said she felt she had “overstepped a boundary” at the time.
Willow’s confession didn’t stop her mom from sharing int-ate details of her own s-ual awakening later during the conversation.“I think by your age, I gave myself multiples first,” Jada told Willow and Telana. “Multiple orgasms. I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men.” The actress even admitted that she might have gotten carried away with her self-exploration. “I actually think I went through kind of an addiction, too, with it. And then one day, I was like, ‘Enough. You’re having five orgasms a day,’ “she revealed.
Gessika S – I’m sure her parent’s relationship plays a huge role on her view of monogamy. Polyamory is her way to protect her from experiencing the same trauma.
FitwithMark – Look I’m glad that she wants to be open-minded and do what she wants to do, but what her mom said is false. Most people do not practice monogamy quote “because they feel like they have no other choice.” Most people just want one secure partner and don’t want to deal with all the issues such as jealously that arise in these engagements. At least for me, I only want one person, and if that’s not good enough for them, they were never the right one. It seems people nowadays are always chasing the hottest new partner, until the honeymoon phase goes away and they are bored. Her mom can be supportive, but I don’t agree with the way she is vilifying monogamy just to show how woke and young she is.
LTS – I’m so over this generation pathalogizing everything that inconveniences their feelings no matter how fleeting.
More does not mean better. Why is the aim to include more s-ual partners? If it’s truly about the pursuit of more inti-mate loving relationship- Why not cultivate bonds with friends and family colleagues or be companions to people truly prone to loneliness like the elderly, foster children and people with disabilities? How much time will be disgnated to spend time alone, find personal fulfillment and enriching existing relationships when you’re too busy trying to be up in everyone’s face?
Nala – I just don’t think you’ll be able to love all of your romantic partners equally in a poly relationship. Heck parents don’t even love all their children equally whether they admit it or not. Be monogamous or polyamorous as much as you like, but let’s not kid ourselves that polyamorous relationships are any better/more stable.
