Jada Pinkett Smith Gets Candid About Struggles in Her Sex Life with Husband Will Smith

“It’s hard,” Jada admitted. “The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey. We started in this at a very young age, 22 years old… I think you expect your partner to know [what you need], especially when it comes to sex. It’s like, ‘Well, if you love me, you should know. If you love me, you should read my mind.’ That’s a huge pitfall.”

Jada and Will, 53, married in 1997 and share two kids – son Jaden, 23, and daughter Willow, 20. Will is also dad to son Trey, 28, from a previous relationship.

Later in the interview, Jada said that she still finds it “uncomfortable” to express her wants and desires in the bedroom.

“Tell me what you need, tell me what you want, and on top of it, I know that I have to be accountable to do the same. I really try [to do that]. It’s uncomfortable, but it’s deeply healthy,” Jada said. “[Especially], I think, around sex, because it’s something that we don’t talk about a lot and there’s so much fantasy around it.”

In a recent interview, Will revealed that his marriage to Jada isn’t monogamous and shared the celebs that were once on his desired list of girlfriends.
