Jada Pinkett-Smith Says Her Grandmother Taught Her About Masturbation At 9

Jada Pinkett Smith

In the most recent episode of her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, the 46-year-old actor told her 17-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, that she had been taught about masturbation from her grandmother - when she was just 9 years old.

When it comes to her own upbringing, Jada recalls that her first sexual experience was "amazing", since her grandmother was very open with her about sex from a young age. "You know how many men I know that have been raped, as young boys, that I was as protective of Jaden as I was of you?", she explained.

When Pinkett Smith asked if her daughter had understood what she had seen, Willow said: "I felt I overstepped a boundary, I wasn't meant to be there".

Pinkett said she did not remember the incident, with Willow adding: "It was not like I was seeing everything, it was dark".

"One thing I've learned in my life over the years is that mental health is something we should practice daily, not just when issues arise", she captioned a photo on Instagram of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade.

One thing I've learned in my life over the years is that mental health is something we should practice daily, not just when issues arise. "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".

Jada even went on to say that after her introduction to sex toys, she became addicted to pleasuring herself and giving herself orgasms! Watching this show is like sitting in on a private family discussion you kind of know you have pretty much no business listening to but can't help to be intrigued enough to keep an ear open.

While Adrienne wasn't super-keen to be chatting about the non-traditional subject matter with her granddaughter, Jada was insistent that Willow didn't feel "shame of any kind". I knew the sooner I let him go, the faster he was going to come back'.

"I can always tell with some of your friends too", she tells Willow. "You just constantly want it". I was like, 'Oh my God, this is so insane. "Oh lord", says her mom, who's even more shocked to learn that her granddaughter Willow will also be part of the conversation. I was really into it at one point.

In the same episode, titled 'Sex Talk!

Meanwhile, on Monday's sex-themed episode of "Red Table Talk", Willow divulged that walking in on her parents' sexy time was her introduction to sex.
