Jada Pinkett-Smith admitted that it was “difficult” to maintain her sex life with her husband Will after decades of marriage.
The actress, 50, admitted that she can feel “uncomfortable” making the effort to stay intimate with her partner, 53, and she “really tries” to maintain communication with him.
Talk about her Facebook Live series Red table with guest Gwyneth Paltrow, Jada said, “The thing that Will and I talk about a lot is travel. We started this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old.
“That’s why the accountability part really hit me because I think you expect your partner to know (what you need), especially when it comes to sex.”
“It’s like, ‘Well, if you love me you should know that. If you love me you should read my mind.’ It’s a huge pitfall.
Gwyneth, who was a guest on the show to discuss her news Netflix series Sex, love and goopadded: “Isn’t that weird, though? It’s like someone isn’t reading your mind and we feel overwhelmed.
Jada, who married Will in 1997, added that she “really tries” to communicate with Will about their sex lives.

Last month, Will revealed that he and Jada were in an open marriage after deciding during their relationship to no longer practice monogamy.
“Jada never believed in conventional marriage. . . Jada had family members who had an unconventional relationship, ”the Men in black the actor said GQ magazine. “So she grew up in a very different way than I grew up.
“There have been endless important discussions about what relationship perfection is? What’s the best way to interact as a couple? ” he continued. “And for much of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not seeing monogamy as the only relational perfection.”
He said: “We have given each other confidence and freedom, with the conviction that everyone must find their own path. And marriage for us cannot be a prison.
“And I’m not suggesting our route to anyone. I am not suggesting this route to anyone. But the experiences that the freedoms we have given ourselves and the unconditional support, to me, are the highest definition of love.

“But at the same time, I don’t want to face the backlash of this in the world. To say I don’t want to talk about it three years ago would have been f ****** excruciating for me.
In 2015, Jada remembered Howard Stern’s quote, when she said, “Look, I’m not here to watch anyone. I am not his observer. He’s a grown man.
In July 2020, Jada also admitted her husband Will in an explosive interview on Red table, that she had an affair with singer August, a friend of their son Jaden.
