Will and Jada Smith’s daughter recently declared herself to be polyamorous.

Will and Jada Smith’s 20-year-old daughter, Jada Smith, recently came out as a polyamorous lesbian. During their show “Red Table Talk,” she did so in front of her mother and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris. These three black American women from the same family host this intergenerational talk show.

Polyamory, also known as pluriamour, refers to a loving friendship in which there is no exclusivity. That is, a relationship in which one person is in love with several people. This partnership, though, would be feasible only with the consent of both parties involved. Adultery, libertarianism, infidelity, and even poligamy are all brought into question in a multi-loving relationship. Polyamory emphasizes the agreement of the relationship’s terms and conditions, which are dependent, among other aspects, on mutual consensus and reverence for each partner’s autonomy.

Willow Smith then explained why she chose her romantic orientation. She wants to emphasize that this impulse in her is not solely of a sexual nature. Since, as the American singer puts it, “I am the only polyamorous person in my circle of mates, but I still have the fewest sexual connections.” She claims that she needs to leave all of her options open. She continues to use a sexual illustration to make her case. Should the asking person resign if one of the couple members does not want sex but the other does? “Because I don’t feel the need, can’t you have that as well?” she says, bringing her thoughts to a close. An strategy that has clearly ignited discussion.

Polyamory is not the only kind of relationship in this group. Here are several other intimate avenues you may not have known existed.
Aromantic: a person who does not feel sexual desire and thus does not fall in love.
Demiromantic: people who only have sentimental feelings for someone if they have already established close emotional links with him or her.
Lithromantic: someone who has romantic feelings but does not wish them to be reciprocated (Asexuality.org).
Panromantics are people who are emotionally drawn to everyone but not physically.
Queer-platonic: people who are in relationships who have very close interpersonal bonds (deep, intense) between them but do not have sentimental relationships.

Will responding to other relationship patterns be the alternative in the West, at a time of divorce, infidelity, and other emotional disappointments? Will the concept of romanticism as we know it still be needed to “evolve”?
