What polyamory means after Willow Smith opens up about relationships on ‘Red Table Talk’

April 29, 2021

Willow Smith has opened up about her experiences with polyamory on the latest episode of the Red Table Talk podcast.

The actor and singer delved into the topic in a discussion with her mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.

What is polyamory?

Polyamory is the practice or desire of sharing intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the consent of everyone involved.

The word polyamory comes from the Greek “poly”, meaning many, and the Latin “amor”, meaning love.

People who engage in polyamory tend to reject the idea that sexual exclusivity is necessary for a long-term loving relationship.

Some will keep their activities within a close group, which is known as polyfidelity, while others will engage in more open relationships, where they can date and sleep with anybody.

What did Willow Smith say?

On her own experiences, Smith said: “With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do.

“So I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships – or why marriage – why divorces happen is infidelity.”

She said she was introduced to polyamory “through kind of a non-sexual lens”, and that it doesn’t mean she is more sexually active.

“In my friend group I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends,” she said.

Smith has spoken about the topic before. On a 2019 episode of the podcast, she said she was open to being in a relationship with both a man and a woman at the same time.

“I’m not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences,” she said. “I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of the 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.”

Singer Willow Smith has revealed she is polyamorous.

Smith, daughter of Hollywood star Will Smith, made the announcement in the latest episode of Red Table Talk, which she hosts alongside her mother and grandmother.

She told Jada Pinkett Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris she enjoyed the freedom allowed by polyamory.

It is defined as being in more than one romantic relationship at a time.

Smith, 20, said: “With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do.

“So, I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind?

“Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships, or why marriage, why divorces happen, is infidelity.”

Smith’s grandmother, Banfield-Norris, 67, said to her polyamory “feels like it’s really all just centred around sex”.

Smith, known for songs including Whip My Hair and Wait A Minute!, said it can help couples who have different desires.

She said: “Are you gonna be the person to say, you know, ‘just because I don’t have these needs, you can’t have them either?’

“And so that’s kind of one of the reasons why I actually was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a non-sexual lens. In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.”

Pinkett Smith, 49, said she “totally” understood her daughter’s stance. Last year she admitted an “entanglement” with rapper August Alsina while married to Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air star husband Will.

Speaking on Red Table Talk, she said: “I think anything goes as long as the intentions are clear. And I know there is a lot of beauty that sits outside of the conventional boxes.”

Red Table Talk is a Facebook Watch production.
