There is no such thing as too much information in the Smith household, it seems.
Sitting down with Willow, her mum, Adrienne Banfield-Jones and her daughter’s friend Telana Lynum, the 46-year-old made sure nothing was out-of-bounds during the frank discussion.
At one point, Willow revealed to her mum that her introduction to sex was walking in on her and Will Smith – before quickly running out.
But the most eye-opening moment for the teen and her friend was when Jada spoke of giving herself “multiple orgasms” as a young adult.
“I think by your age [Telana, 21], I gave myself multiples first. Multiple orgasms,” she said.
“I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men.”
To Willow’s surprised – but notably cringe-free – face, Jada explained she even found herself addicted to masturbation at one point.
“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’.”
We love Willow’s gobsmacked reaction:
Jada said her healthy attitude towards sex and self-pleasure came from her grandmother, who taught her at nine years old what masturbation was.
“She didn’t want me to fall into the hands of a man, and if he gave me pleasure, to think that that was him.”
At the start of the episode, Jada said she thought people, especially women, needed to be more comfortable talking about sex.
And Willow was on board with the discussion, saying she thought parents made the mistake of only telling girls “it’s scary out there, you better be safe” and not the positives of sex.
