Jada Pinkett Smith has no shame in her sex toy game. 

As a Red Table Talk co-host, the actress is known to share some pretty intimate details about her personal life, from her marriage problems with longtime husband Will Smith to her past sex addiction

Last month, she recalled in an episode of the Facebook Watch series how she had used sex toys to give herself multiple orgasms a day during an "exploration stage" of her life.  However, looking back, she thinks she went through an addiction with it. 

According to The Sun, she revisited the topic of sex toys, saying, "People are shocked about my love for using sex toys. I know d--n well I'm not the only one that uses them," the Angel Has Fallen actress reportedly said. "Nobody has to feel any shame about it, but I'm still surprised how people relate to sex, specifically female sexuality–it's still such a taboo."

Smith' grandmother defied taboos about female sexuality early on in the star's life. 

"My grandmother taught me about self-pleasuring because she wanted me to know that that pleasure was from me," Jada said in an episode. "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—at 9!"

The star continued, "We as women have been trained that women aren't supposed to enjoy sex. Sex is not for women. Sex is for men. Pleasure is for men and honestly, I think that's why so many women I know haven't had orgasms."
