Jada Pinketh Smith has revealed the secret to her long standing marriage to actor and rapper, Will Smith, in the world of Hollywood where marriages and relationships rarely last.
In an interview with the Bizarre column of The Sun, Jada confessed that sex toys were playing a major role in keeping their marriage intact and spicy.
The 47-year-old who is mother of Jaden, 21 and Willow, 18, stated that her marriage to Will Smith has lasted so long because of the sexual experimentation and adventures that reign in their bedroom where sex toys are not a “taboo” like most people see it.
Her words: “People are shocked about my love for using sex toys. I know damn well I’m not the only one that uses them. Nobody has to feel any shame about it but I’m still surprised how people relate to sex, specifically female sexuality – it’s still such a taboo to them.”
The actress, comedian and songwriter also revealed that she and her 50-year-old open up about their marriage problems in order to inspire others who encounter problems in relationships or marriages.
She said: “Will and I really wanted to dissolve the myths that surround partnerships that are in the public eye, as if they’re easy. Those partnerships are going through the exact kind of difficulties everyone else is going through. We got a lot of positive responses from people in our industry. I think it gave people the opportunity to sit down with their partner.”
She also admitted her relationship with Smith is not a “conventional marriage”. “I knew that I was not built for conventional marriage. Even the word ‘wife’: it’s a golden cage, swallow the key. Even before I was married, I was like, ‘That’ll kill me.’ And it damn near did! So why wouldn’t you share what you’ve been through, when you see that other people are out there, trying to figure this crap out? We decided to make it public because it’s part of the healing. I feel like if we don’t have real understanding about it, I don’t know if interpersonal relationships are possible.”
