Singer-songwriter Willow Smith, the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, opened up about her multi-layered lifestyle on the talk show Red Table Talk, where she was interacting with her mother Yada and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Jones. Willow, at the age of 20, opened up about being polyamorous and how he was introduced to the concept with a non-sexual lens. Jada said that although the concept is not for everyone, she is with Willow as long as she is “learning to have the greatest love affair with herself.” Willow came out as bisexual in 2019.
What is a polynomial relationship?
A polyandrous relationship is one in which a person can have an intimate relationship with more than one partner, with the consent of all involved. Society generally considers monogamous relationships as accepted norms. In some cultures anything other than monogamy is considered immoral and illegal.
Willow said on the chat show, “With polygamy, I think the main premise is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into uniformity because everything around you says Is that the right thing to do. So I was like, how can I structure the way that I take into account relationships with that? Also, doing research in polyandry, the main reason is that monogamous relationships – or marriage. Why – why is divorce, it’s infidelity. “
Willow also pointed out that polyamory is not focused on multiple sex partners. “I will give you an example. Suppose you have not always been the type of person who wanted to have sex all the time. But you have a partner. Are you the person to say, ‘Just because I don’t have these needs, you don’t have them either?’ And so this is one of the reasons why I was really interested in Pali, because I was introduced through a nonporous lens. In my friend group, I am the only polygamous person and I have had the least sex out of all my friends, ”she said.
Smith said that even though she believed in polyamory, she herself saw no more than two partners at a time. He said that from the age of 17, he started thinking about polyamory. “Me and my partner were in a long distance relationship and I did not want to hold her back. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust him, but once I implored him that it would not only benefit me, it was okay, “she said.
