Jada Pinkett Smith's gran encouraged self-pleasure when she was 9

During the latest episode of Jada Pinkett Smith's Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, the topic was all about sex and pleasure.

Cape Town - Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that by the time she was 17 she had already mastered the art of giving herself multiple orgasms. "I did not want Willow to have shame of any kind. She needs to be at that table to hear it all".

In an Instagram post she shared on Monday, June 11, 2018, Pinkett noted that mental health is something to be practised on a daily basis. "I came down to get some juice and I saw for a little moment and I ran away. I just didn't have that". "What did I just see?'" Jada didn't remember the moment but the room was luckily dark so Willow didn't end up seeing much.

"I knew the night, the night, Jaden lost his virginity", Jada said. "He was embarrassed. It was like their innocence was gone".

She said: "I knew the night, the night, Jaden lost his virginity. And she taught me at 9!" At nine. We as women have been trained that women aren't supposed to enjoy sex, sex is not for women, sex is for men, pleasure is for men. I remember thinking to myself, as devastated as I was, I was like, "He's right". "Many may not understand... but I do, and this morning I have the deepest gratitude that I pulled through".

"I think by your age, I gave myself multiples first", Jada says.

"One thing I've learned in my life over the years is that mental health is something we should practice daily, not just when issues arise", she began.

"We, as women, have been trained that women aren't supposed to enjoy sex, sex is not for women, sex is for men, pleasure is for men", Jada said before explaining that once in the past, after an experiment with abstaining from men, she went through an addiction to sex toys. One day I was like, 'enough.' I was having, like, five orgasms a day.

She said: "My grandmother was a doer who wanted to create a better community and add beauty to the world". Willow's response: "No, she is considered a handsome person". By seeing them, she felt like she "overstepped a boundary". I was in the shower one day and had just handfuls of hair in my hands and I was just like, 'Oh my god, am I going bald?' Willow Smith revealed that her introduction to sex was to accidentally walking in on her parents during a trip to Aspen.
