Smith, 18, spoke about the matter during the latest episode of mom Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, on Monday, June 24. During the episode, she joined her mother and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris as they spoke with a trio who are currently engaging in a polyamorous relationship together — also referred to as a “throuple.”

“Monogamy, I feel — this is just personally, just for me — I feel actually inhibits you from learning those skills of evolving past those feelings of insecurity,” Willow said. “Just jealousy, you know what I mean?”

Jada interrupted her child, seeking clarification on Willow’s point by asking whether monogamy was “too constricting” for her, to which she replied: “Yeah, exactly.” The “Whip My Hair” singer then argued that polyamory is designed to allow people to “create the kind of relationship that you want for your life.”

At one point in the episode, she shared her interest in pursuing relationships with men and women, saying she loves both sexes “equally.”

“I would definitely want one man, one woman,” she explained. “I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I’m not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences. I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of the different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don’t feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more.”

Willow also noted to her mother and grandmother that she cannot see herself dating more than two people at once, saying: “Personally, male and female — that’s all I need.”

New episodes of Red Table Talk hit Facebook Watch on Mondays at 12:00 p.m. ET.
