The actors have been married for over 20 years, and while their marriage may not be perfect, the couple works at it every day.
As fans of the famous couple know, their marriage has seen some trials and tribulations in recent years.
Jada’s Entanglement Left Will Crying!
Earlier this year, Will confirmed that he and his wife don’t have a conventional marriage, but rather, they have an open marriage.
Will admitted to GQ that both he and Jada mutually agreed to allow one another to engage in sexual relationships outside of their marriage.
Sex and intimacy is very important to the Hollywood couple.
On this week’s episode of ‘RTT,’ Jada opened up her marriage and the pitfalls many couples can fall into.
The “Girls Trip” actress was joined by her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and Goop creator, Gwyneth Paltrow.
Gwyneth Paltrow Dishes On Intimacy!
Their first order of business was to discuss the difficulties of maintaining a good sex life.
Jada was the first to admit it is hard to maintain a healthy life in the bedroom adding that she and Will ‘talk a lot about the journey.’
“We started in this at a very young age, 22 years old… I think you expect your partner to know what you need, especially when it comes to sex,” she explained. “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.”
Obviously, Jada and Will have fulfilled their wants and desires outside of their marriage, but they still have to come home to one another at the end of the day.
Jada comes back to Will.
The actress noted that she’s grown out of expecting Will to know what exactly she is needing or wanting sexually, but admits is can be ‘uncomfortable’ to vocalize her desires.
“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,” Jada explained.
This is something she really aims to do in her marriage.
When it comes to discussing sex with her kids, Jaden (23) and Willow Smith (20) she has a very different approach to that of her guest, Paltrow.
Jada revealed her youngest started asking about sex at the age of five and made sure to preach “respect and consideration” to Jaden.
For the Goop creator, her children didn’t inquire about sex until they began to learn about it in sixth grade in sex education class.
Paltrow said, “They learned everything. Full on everything. In sixth grade they had the craziest sex ed talk.”
“I will never forget Apple’s face when she came home. She told them everything. When I say everything, I mean everything,” the actress admitted.
Her son, Moses, on the other hand is a bit younger and at an age where talk of girls just isn’t something he wants to chat about with his mom!
