Willow Smith reveals she's polyamorous
During the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Willow Smith reveals she's polyamorous.
Polyamory means having multiple emotional and romantic partners at the same time.
The latest Red Table Talk episode explores the topic, and what it means.
Willow explained, "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."
Her grandmother Adrienne, however, "[feels] it's all just centered around sex."
Willow disagreed, "Let's say you haven't always been the person wanting sex all the time, but your partner is."
"Are you going to be the person to say, 'Just because I don't have these needs, you can't have them either?'"
"In my friend group, I'm the only polyamorous person"
"That's one of the reasons why I 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."
Willow's mother, Jada Pinkett, said she, "totally [gets] it."
She said, "I think anything goes, as long as the intentions are clear... really more to yourself than anything."
"I know there's a lot of beauty that sits outside of the conventional boxes."
Her 20-year-old daughter went on to say, "The history of marriage really irks me."
Willow elaborated, "Just the history of marriage as a whole and what it has represented over the years, for women in particular."
"I feel like the only way that I would get married is — let's say me and my partner or partners wants to help people, and we need to put our finances together in order to make that vision happen."
"That's the only way I could see myself getting married," she admitted.
Later in the episode, the gang introduced Poly Solo Gabrielle Smith and her married boyfriend Alex.
They shared how their multiple-partner approach to relationships works.
So far, the episode has over 32,000 Facebook reactions.
