Jada, Red Table Talk discuss porn addiction

Jada Pinkett Smith disclosed that she’s had an unhealthy relationship with porn in the past. In a new episode of Red Table Talk, 47-year-old Jada talked about her “little porn addiction” in the past.

“I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness,”

Pinkett Smith said to her co-hosts, daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones.

Red Table Talk:

Once upon a time, you had to buy magazines and DVDs from the store, or at the least, you had to risk your life sneaking into your older brothers room to get it from under his bed. Now, things are completely different. All you need is a mobile device and internet connection and you’re in business. Yes, I know, convenience is a plus, but while in the past we had to cross obstacles to get to porn, we literally have none now, which has contributed in the rise of addiction.

Pinkett Smith mentioned she may have used the term “addiction” too lightly, and rebutted, saying she just had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in her life when she was trying to practice abstinence.

Everyone is aware, Pinkett Smith has been married to Will Smith for nearly 22 years and admitted that porn makes you feel an emptiness, and gives you false expectations when connecting with partners.

The 23-minute episode shined a light when society has started to reach it’s darkest point. Pinkett Smith, Willow, and Bankfield-Jones discussed the public shame surrounding the enjoyment of porn, but at the same time, how addiction to porn can negatively impact so much, including your personal relationships and career.
