These days people have different sexual preferences and some of them are weird. I don’t just understand.
Polyamory is an open relationship but unlike the usual open relationship, Polyamory allows you to have multiple partners with the consent of all parties involved.
The Church girl in me is screaming and i am not alone. On today’s episode of “The red table” a show that willow smith co-hosts with her mum, Jada Pinkett and her maternal grand mother, Adrienne Bannfield, willow disclosed that she is polyamory and her grandmother reacted just like i would.
Anyway, Willow said she couldn’t see herself wanting to “go past two partners”.
“With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do,” she said.

“Also, doing research into polyamory,” she added, “the main [reason] …why divorces happen is infidelity.”
Willow also said that knew from the age of 17 that being in a conventional monogamous relationship wasn’t for her.
“Me and my partner were in a long-distance relationship and I just didn’t want to hold him back.
“It wasn’t that I didn’t trust him but once I framed it as how it would benefit him not just me, it was fine.”
‘We can’t be everything to our partners’
Biko, the statement above is for willow and her boyfriends. Chioma Jumbo is everything to her man ooo.
In the TV interview, Willow’s grandma says it feels like it’s ‘really all just about sex’ which Willow denies saying: “In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.”
Leanne can relate to this: “People have different needs when it comes to how much sex you want – at the end of the day we can’t be everything to our partners.
“A lot of people assume that being poly is selfish and we’re greedy and we want to have our cake and eat it.
“Actually, it’s the most selfless thing you can do. I love my partner and I want other people to love them too.”
Everyone in a poly group consents but Leanne says it’s up to each individual to set boundaries.
“Not every single detail has to be shared, such as when you’re going on a date, if you had sex.
“It really is about customizing your connections.”
It’s not just a ‘white person’ thing
According to Willow, her mum saw her sexual preferences as betraying her race and felt these were things ‘that white people do’.
“I think at the time mum’s comments came from a place of ignorance and she just didn’t want me to get hurt.”
Willow also think that people choose monogamy because it’s socially accepted. I don’t think so, please leave your opinion in the comment section.
It’s God job to judge but i disagree with Willow on so many levels.
Sending you love and light.
