Willow Smith Admits Walking In On Parents Will & Jada Having Sex: I Ran Away!
The first time Willow Smith said she experienced sex is when she walked in on her parents having it. She rehashes the experience on her family’s latest episode of their Facebook talk show, Red Table Talk,
which centered around the different experiences of sex from a woman’s perspective. After being asked what her introduction to sex was, Willow candidly explained,
My introduction to sex was obviously walking in on you and Daddy [Will Smith]. It was in Utah … not Utah. Aspen. I was going downstairs to get some juice and I saw for a little moment and I ran away. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is so crazy. What did I just see?’
As Willow provides context, she urges she did not see “everything,”
The room was dark. You know what I’m saying? It was silhouetted.
Jada’s face was seemingly one of astonishment as Willow dropped this bombshell for the first time. As Willow does not provide an age range when this awkward occurrence took place, Jada followed up
this new information by asking how her daughter felt about walking in on her parents. Unambiguously, Willow answered,
[I] overstepped a boundary.
During the episode, Jada also talks about her exploration with sex. She began explaining some of her beginning experiences with orgasms, and how she gave herself “multiples first.” She confesses,
Multiple orgasms. I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men. And 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.’
As the show progresses, the women become more open about the discussion of sex and delve deeper into their different experiences with it. They outlined the generational gap and different variables (technology, social media) that come into play with trying to have sex. At the beginning of the show, they classified it as a “taboo” subject, and felt it was necessary to create spaces for sexual education and inclusion.
Do you think it’s necessary to talk to your children about sex? If so, at what age?
