Willow Smith, daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, spoke to her mother and grandmother on “Red Table Talk” about being open to multiple intimate partners.
Willow asked Jada how she felt when revealed that she was polyamorous. Jada answered, “When you were like, ‘Hey this is my get down,’ I was like, ‘I totally get it,'” “Wanting to set up your life in a way that you can have what it is that you want, I think anything goes as long as the intentions are clear.”
She added that in life, “there’s a lot of beauty that sits outside of the conventional boxes” and later explained that she feels “most people are practicing monogamy because they feel like they have no other choice.”
Talking about her own take on polyamory, Willow said, “With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do. So, I was like, ‘How can I structure the way I approach relationships with that in mind?'”
Willow explained that her lifestyle isn’t centered around sex, she elaborated, “I’ll give you an example. Let’s say you haven’t always been the kind of person that wanted to have sex all the time. But your partner is. Are you gonna be the person to say, ‘Just because I don’t have these needs, you can’t have them either?’ And so that’s kind of one of the reasons why I was actually interested in poly because I was introduced to it through a nonsexual lens.”
She added, “In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person and I have the least sex out of all my friends.” Admitting that she did experience fits of jealousy, however mother Jada said that she did not have any issues as long as Willow is”learning to have the greatest love affair with” herself.
