WATCH: On “Red Table Talk”, Jada Pinkett Smith Says She Was Addicted to Porn ‘Back in the Day’ When She Was ‘Trying to Practice Abstinence’ and Thought She Was Filling an Emptiness

On the latest episode of her hit Facebook series, “Red Table Talk,” actress Jada Pinkett Smith and her team discussed the unhealthy effects of porn.

On Monday’s episode of RTT, Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow, and her mom Adrienne explored the negative effect on pornography on relationships.

“Back in the day I had a little porn addiction, but I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness,” the actress admitted while the trio got ready before heading to the table.

“I actually feel like I was using ‘addiction’ a little lightly. And maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence,” Pinkett Smith, who’s been married to Will Smith for over 20 years, added.

Her 18-year-old daughter asked if her “fixation” to porn came from an “emotional” place. The honest mother shared that it did.

“It was actually, like, filling, like, an emptiness. At least you think it is, but it’s actually not,” Pinkett Smith explained, before further examining the effect porn has on sexual intimacy.

“Actually reading some of the effects of pornography, the idea that it gives you false expectations as far as sexual interactions, I can definitely see that with men. How a woman should always be willing and ready. She should be ready to have sex however he wants, in any position, anywhere, and you should enjoy it no matter what. And it shouldn’t just be joy, but it should be exhilaration,” she continued. “In pornography, you’re never tired. There’s never a ‘no,’ so I can definitely see how that can create an unrealistic expectation.”
