Jada Pinkett Smith spoke about her previous struggles with several addictions, including sex, on her new show.
In Monday night’s episode of “Red Table Talk,” Smith said she “had a sex addiction of some kind.”
“My sort of addictions jump. They jump around,” the actress said. “When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex. You know what I’m saying?”
This isn’t the first time the 46-year-old has spoken about sex and hinted at her addiction. She admitted to her daughter Willow Smith that she used sex toys when she was 21 to give herself “five orgasms a day.”
“I’ve had a lot of experience with sex toys — lots,” Smith said in a previous episode. “I don’t think I used toys with a partner, but I did use toys a lot alone. I gave myself multiples first. Multiple orgasms. I was really into it at one point.”
Smith also revealed in Monday’s episode she would go through periods of developing an addiction to certain actions, including the gym and alcohol.
“I remember reaching a rock bottom that time I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle,” Smith recalled. “And I was like, ‘Now hold up. You’re in this house by yourself going onto your third bottle of wine? You might have a problem.'”
The actress said she went “cold turkey” and cut the alcohol out of her life. Smith added that she is a “binger.”
She continued, “I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things. It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behavior that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great, but why are you having all that sex?”
“That’s what you’ve got to look at,” Smith said.
