Cape Town - Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that by the time she was 17 she had already mastered the art of giving herself multiple orgasms.

The actress made the revelation in the latest episode of her Facebook series, Red Table Talk that she hosts alongside daughter Willow Smith and mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones.

With the theme of the show talking about sex, Jada shared with Willow and Willow's Telana Lynum, about her experience with sex when she was a teenager.

“I think by your age, I gave myself multiples firsts, multiple orgasms. I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men.”

The actress also candidly admitted that she had to stop pleasuring herself as she got to a point where she could make herself climax multiple times a day, “I actually think I went through kind of an addiction, too, with it. And then one day, I was like, ‘Enough. You’re having five orgasms a day.’”

The Girls Trip actress, who is mom to daughter Willow (17) and son Jaden (19) with husband Will Smith, admitted that she learnt about sex and sexuality from her grandmother, Marion Martin Banfield.

“My grandmother taught me about self-pleasuring because she wanted me to know that that pleasure was from me,” the 46-year-old said. “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. And she taught me at 9!”
