On Wednesday, Willow spoke publicly about being polyamorous, but noted that she can’t see herself “ going past two partners. ”
Willow, who appears to be in a monogamous relationship with her boyfriend, Tyler Cole, made the reveal on her mom’s Facebook show Red Table Talk.
She explained, ‘With polyamory I feel the most important foundation is the freedom to create a relationship style that works for you and not just get into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is right to do.. ‘
So I was like, How can I structure the way I approach relationships with that in mind? Also researching polyamory, the main reasons monogamous relationships – or why marriages – cause divorces, is infidelity. ‘

Willow – who practices ethical non-monogamy, meaning all partners agree to be polyamorous – met with resistance from her grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, who said, “ For someone like me, it feels like it’s really all about sex. . ‘
Smith then gave her ‘Gammy’ an example of a couple who might have a different appetite for sex.
‘Are you the person who says, you know,’ Just because I don’t have these needs, can’t you have them either? Explained the Rise singer.
And so that’s one of the reasons I was actually interested in poly, because I was introduced to it through some kind of non-sexual lens. In my group of friends, I am the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex of all my friends. ‘
FYI: On Wednesday, Willow spoke publicly about being polyamorous on Red Table Talk, but noted that she can’t see herself going past two partners.
Willow – who said the ‘history of marriage really annoys me’ – found a more open, compassionate listener in her mother Jada.
“I’m okay with whatever you do,” the 49-year-old Matrix 4 action star shrugged.
“When you thought,” Hey, this is my downfall. ” I was like, “I totally get it.” I want to organize your life so that you can get what you want, I think anything is possible as long as the intentions are clear. ‘
Willow’s coming out was no revelation as she confessed to being bisexual and polyfidelitous (a form of non-monogamy) two years ago on her weekly Facebook Watch series.
“I love men as much as women, so I would definitely want one man and one woman,” said the Calabasas resident at the time.
Candid: She said, ‘I feel the most important foundation is the freedom to create a relationship style that works for you’
‘I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I am not the kind of person who is constantly looking for new sexual experiences.
‘I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I could find two people of the different genders that I was really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I wouldn’t feel like I would have the need feel to try to search more. ‘
Since 2017, Willow has had a seemingly monogamous relationship with Tyler Cole, whom she met through her big brother Jaden.
