Jada Pinkett Smith has spoken *very* candidly about her sex life with husband Will, and the whole chat is extremely honest.

The discussion comes after Will opened up about his relationship with Jada last month, revealing that the pair had at some point 'stopped being monogamous' during their 23-year marriage.

The couple came under the spotlight last July after sitting down on Jada's Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, to discuss her relationship with singer August Alsina while married to Will. Jada opened up about getting into an "entanglement" with August, with Will and Jada then attempting to clear the air.

Now, Jada and Will's sex life has become the topic of Red Table Talk once again, as Jada led the discussion with mum and co-host Adrienne Banfield-Norris, plus guest Gwyneth Paltrow.

The actress explained, "It's hard. 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."

Gwyneth, whose new show Sex, Love and Goop just dropped on Netflix, added, "It's like someone doesn't read your mind and we feel crushed," with Jada quickly agreeing.

Jada then went on reveal how she and Will try to cope with the struggle, saying, "You tell me what you need, tell me what you want. And on top of it, I know that I have to be accountable to do the same ... I really try."

"It's uncomfortable, but it's deeply healthy. And I think around sex, because it's something that we don't talk about a lot, and there's so much fantasy around it," she continued before trailing off.

Will Smith has also opened up about his relationship with Jada in upcoming memoir Will, with an excerpt revealing, "Our marriage wasn’t working. We could no longer pretend. We were both miserable and clearly something had to change."
