“It’s hard,” Jada said. “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.”
She added, “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.”
While that behavior is something Jada said she’s grown out of, she still can find it “uncomfortable” to express her desires.
“You 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,” she explained. “I really try. 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.”
Willow appeared remotely on the latest Red Table Talk episode, but left before her mom talked about sex.
