The 20-year-old daughter of Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith has announced that she’s polyamorous.
During a discussion with her mother and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, Willow Smith said that she can’t see herself ‘going past two partners.’
Speaking on her mother’s Facebook show Red Table Talk, 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 that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships – or why marriage – why divorces happen is infidelity.”
Willow was met with resistance from her grandmother, who said: “For somebody like me, it feels like it’s really all just centered around sex.”
The 20-year-old then gave her grandma an example of a couple who might’ve opposite appetites for making love.
“Are you gonna be the person to say, you know: ‘Just because I don’t have these needs, you can’t have them either?’” she explained.
“And so that’s kind of one of the reasons why I actually was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a nonsexual lens. In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.”
Jada, 49, then told her: “I’m okay with whatever you do.”
“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,” the movie star continued.
