The latest episode of Jada Pinkett Smith‘s “Red Table Talk” is all about having a relationship with more than one person at the same time, which the actress said she’s familiar with, minus the sex.
The guests on the show were three people who are in a relationship with each other, and they discussed the pros and cons of living that lifestyle. The term “throuple” was used in the discussion as well, which was defined as “Three people having a consensual romance.”
Pinkett Smith said she’s been in that type of relationship with her husband Will Smith and his ex-wife Sheree Zampino, because they’ve all worked together to raise Smith and Zampino’s son Trey Smith, who’s now 26.
“You know what’s so interesting, though? Why it’s so not foreign to me too is that I’ve had a non-sexual throuple for years with Sheree,” explained Pinkett Smith. “When you have your husband that is taking care of another woman and spending time with another woman, it’s the same thing.”
Elsewhere in the video, the “Girl’s Trip” star said the episode came about because her daughter Willow Smith took interest in polyamory, a relationship involving more than two people that everyone agrees with.
Pinkett Smith, who also revealed that she had a threesome at a younger age, said she could be in a throuple these days, but just the emotional aspects of it.
“Hell, yeah,” the actress stated. “You know what? I could do a throuple. I could. I could probably be romantically engaged with somebody else, but I can only have sex with one person. I’m sexually monogamous, but I definitely could be romantically poly. Maybe if I was back in the day, but today, I could have only one.”
In another part of the conversation, Willow Smith weighed in and said she’s open to a polyamorous relationship because she enjoys both genders.
“I couldn’t see myself in a quadruple, I mean, anything could happen,” Willow explained. “Personally, male and female, that’s all I need. I love men and women equally. So I would definitely want one man and one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people.”
“I’m not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences,” added the 18-year-old. “I focus a lot on the emotional connection, and I feel like if I were to find two people of different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don’t feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more.”
