On her show Red Table Talk on Wednesday, Oct. 27, the 50-year-old host and actress, her mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris, 68, and guest Gwyneth Paltrow, 49, discussed the challenges of maintaining a good sex life and the importance of communicating sexual desires with your partner.
“It’s hard,” Jada said. “The thing Will and I talk about a lot is the journey. We started in this at a very young age, you know, 22 years old. That’s why the accountability part really hit for 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. If you love me, you should read my mind.’ That’s a huge pitfall.”
Paltrow, who is currently promoting her Netflix series Sex, Love & goop, commented, “Isn’t it weird, though? It’s like someone doesn’t read your mind and we feel crushed.”
“Crushed!” Jada concurred.
