Rumer Willis is laying it all out on the table.

For the Tuesday, Oct. 20 episode of Red Table Talk, the 32-year-old actress, who's the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, fearlessly got real about her own experiences with sexual consent. She was joined by the Emmy-nominated show's co-hosts, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jada's mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris and daughter Willow Smith. 

"Something happened to me a couple months ago," Rumer shares in the exclusive clip below. "I'd hung out with this person for a little while. We were kissing outside and I said, ‘Do you want to come in for a minute?' And, when I ask you to come in my house, that doesn't mean that I'm saying that you can get me naked, that doesn't mean that I'm saying you can do this. I'm saying that you can come into my house."

She moved on to explain that after inviting her date inside her home, he proceeded to try and take her clothes off. "I just froze. I completely froze," she says. "I even have so much shame about bringing that up because I feel like I'm such, this empowered, strong person. But even I couldn't do it, could not say, ‘No.'"

Throughout the episode, Rumer also opened up about losing her virginity after being taken advantage of.

"When I lost my virginity, when I was 18, I was more concerned with the shame that I was feeling at not having done it," she said in a clip shared by ETCanada. "I was not abused, or it wasn't rape, but I didn't say 'yes.' I wasn't gung-ho about it, but I also didn't say 'no.' I just let it happen." 

She added, "He was older and took advantage and didn't check in. That's where I feel like the man's responsibility is. No means no, but what if you can't say no?"

Though topics surrounding sex are deeply personal, Rumer's story will surely help viewers better understand the meaning of sexual consent. 

Red Table Talk airs every Tuesday at 12 p.m. ET on Facebook Watch.
