Jada Pinkett Smith has opened up about her sex life with husband Will Smith, revealing that the communication can be “uncomfortable, but deeply healthy”. The star revealed that she finds it “hard” to maintain her sex life with the film star after so many years of marriage.
In an episode of her Facebook Live series Red Table Talk with guest Gwyneth Paltrow, Jada admitted that maintaining intimacy can be a challenge and said she “really tries” to keep the communication flowing.
Jada, 50, said: ‘It’s uncomfortable, but it’s deeply healthy and I think around sex, because it’s something that we don’t talk about and there’s so much fantasy around it.”
The actress wed her movie star husband Will, 53, in 1997 and the couple recently said they have an open marriage.
She continued: “The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey.

“We started in this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old.
“That’s why the accountability part really hit for me because 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,” she added.
Jada’s comments were part of a candid conversation with guest Gwyneth about sex from a woman’s point of view, which included discussions on female orgasms and even involved the use of a vulva puppet.
Gwyneth added: “Isn’t it weird, though?
“It’s like someone doesn’t read your mind and we feel crushed.”
The famous actress had appeared on the show to discuss her new Netflix series Sex, Love and Goop, which delves deeper into the subjects of both romantic and physical intimacy.

Last month Will revealed that he and his wife had decided not to practice monogamy in their relationship, stating that they didn’t want their marriage to feel like “a prison”.
Last year, the pair spoke openly about Jada’s “entanglement” with singer August Alsina, and Will later admitted to GQ that he was also engaging in sexual relationships outside of their marriage.
Will told the publication: “Jada never believed in conventional marriage… Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship.
“So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up.
“There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple?
“And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection,” he continued.
“We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison.
“And I don’t suggest our road for anybody. I don’t suggest this road for anybody, but the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love.”
