Jada Pinkett Smith has been keeping it as real as ever on new Facebook series, Red Table Talk. The actress has already addressed her own struggles with alopecia, her rumored feud with Gabrielle Union and letting son, Jaden, move out on his own at 15 years old.
On the latest episode, the open and honest 46-year-old discusses sexuality with her teenage daughter, Willow, revealing that she began masturbating at the age of 9.
“My grandmother taught me about self-pleasuring because she wanted me to know that that pleasure was from me. 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. And she taught me at 9!”
She also shared that by the time she was Willow’s age, 17, she already knew how to give herself multiple orgasms.
“I think by your age, I gave myself multiples first. Multiple orgasms. I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men … 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.’”
