During the newest episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith, the actress, and wife of Will Smith dished on what it was like to overcome her addiction to sex in her formative years.

"My sort of addictions jump", Jada 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?" the 46-year-old actress revealed on the Monday, July 9, episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk.

During the emotional conversation - which also included Pinkett Smith's sister-in-law, Ashley Marie, and singer August Alsina - Pinkett Smith said her addictions have "jumped around".

Although we've all been taught to never judge a book by its cover, I fell into that trap with Banfield-Jones.

"Yo, I wish!" that were true, she joked at the time. "You might have a problem, '" she continued. "You just realize, oh, that's not being exhausted, that is like, a drug problem".


But Jada insists quitting her addictions isn't hard for her, as she has the ability to go "cold turkey" and cut the vice out of her lifestyle.

During an appearence on TIDAL's Rap Radar on the 5th of July, he said, "I've been to the top of money, I've had all the sex that I've ever wanted, and I've had all of the adoration".

'I don't think I used toys with a partner, but I did use toys a lot alone. So I had this man come back in my life.

Pinkett Smith said that epiphany caused her to put down the bottle immediately. "I was just in the gym, constantly". "She didn't want me to fall into the hands of a man, and if he gave me pleasure, to think that that was him".

The mother of two told her daughter Willow and her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, her regular guests on the show that she is "a binger" and so she always has "to watch" herself. Multiple orgasms. I was really into it at one point. One day I was like, 'Enough!' I was having, like, five orgasms a day. But why are you having all that sex? You just realise, oh, that's not being exhausted, that is like, a drug problem.
