Willow Smith says she walked in on her parents making love
We all have fond memories with our parents - opening presents on Christmas, traveling to Disneyworld for a summer vacation, walking in on them having sex. Okay, not so much the latter, but it's been known to happen. And if you've ever had the unfortunate experience of walking in on your mom and dad "wrestling," take comfort in the fact you're not alone. It happened to Willow Smith too.
Willow Smith, of course, is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, as well as the world's preeminent expert on whipping hair back and forth. One thing you might not know is that Willow, her mom, Jada, and her grandmother, Adrienne, have a talk show on Facebook. It's Red Table Talk, where three generations of women have candid discussions about different topics.
On an episode about body insecurities, Willow revealed her father said he is 'so happy' she isn't 'curvy' because he wants men to focus on her 'brain.' And then Jada opened up about how she's grown to accept hair loss. In some families, these issues would be swept under the carpet, but the Smith women are refreshingly up front.
Their most recent episode was about sex, and it got awkward pretty quickly. Willow, 17, told her mom, "My introduction to sex was obviously walking in on you and Daddy." Shocked, Jada asked, "When the hell did you walk in on us?" (She didn't notice?)
Willow recalled, "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?'" Jada laughed and replied, "I don't remember this." Luckily, Willow didn't get the full image. "The room, it was dark," she added. "It was silhouetted."
But that wasn't the only entertaining moment. Jada revealed that her grandmother taught her about masturbation when she was just nine years old:
"My grandmother taught me about self-pleasuring because she wanted me to know that pleasure was from me. She didn't want me to fall into the hands of a man and if he gave me pleasure to think that pleasure came from him. And she taught me at nine. At nine."
Well, now I feel ripped off. My grandparents never taught me how to pleasure myself. They just gave me donuts and soda. Sure, that brought me pleasure, but it's just not the same.
In case you haven't heard enough of the Smith women's sex chat - and I know you haven't - Jada revealed that she knew the moment her sons lost their virginities. And not just because they bragged about it on Facebook. As they say, a mother knows.
"I knew the night, the night, Jaden lost his virginity," and Jada. "And I had a moment with Trey, in the kitchen, where I looked at him like 'You've had sex.' ... 'He was just like, "Fine yes, I've had sex." He was embarrassed. It was like their innocence was gone.'"
Well, after listening to all these revelations, your innocence may be gone. But maybe that's a good thing. Kudos to the Smiths for discussing sensitive topics so openly.
