Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith has revealed that her grandmother taught her how to please herself.
“My grandmother taught me about self-pleasuring because she wanted me to know that pleasure was from me,” Pinkett Smith said in an interview with mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and daughter Willow Smith.
“She didn’t want me to fall into the hands of a man, and if he gave me pleasure, to think that was him. And she taught me at nine.”
By her early twenties, Pinkett Smith said she was giving herself multiple orgasms and experimenting with sex toys.
“I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men,” she said.
“And I actually think I went through kind of an addiction, too, with it. And then one day, I was just like, ‘Enough. You’re having five orgasms a day.’ Yeah, you get addicted. You can create so much pleasure, you constantly want it.”
