Will Smith is making more candid confessions about his sex life.
In his new memoir Will, which was released earlier this month, the King Richard star reveals that he became addicted to sex after his first serious girlfriend, Melanie Parker, cheated on him when they were teenagers.
As a result, the actor resorted to “rampant” sex as a way of coping with his broken heart.
“I desperately need relief but as there is no pill for heartbreak, I resorted to the homeopathic remedies of shopping and rampant sexual intercourse,” he writes, according to BuzzFeed News.
“Up until this point in my life, I had only had sex with one woman other than Melanie, but over the next few months, I went full ghetto hyena.”
The excessive sexual intercourse eventually led to him developing a “psychosomatic reaction” to having an orgasm.
“I had sex with so many women, and it was so constitutionally disagreeable to the core of my being, that I developed a psychosomatic reaction to having an orgasm,” he writes.
“It would literally make me gag and sometimes even vomit,” adds Smith.
While he was hoping to heal from the trauma, the random sexual encounters only exacerbated his pain.
“In every case, though, I hoped to God this beautiful stranger would be ‘the one’ who would love me, who would make this pain go away,” he says. “But invariably, there I was, retching and wretched. And the look in the eyes of the women even further deepened my agony.”
He and Melanie briefly reconciled before ultimately breaking up for good.
This is the latest revelation from Smith. In his book, he also admits that he used to fantasize about having a harem of 25 girlfriends including Halle Berry and Misty Copeland, and that he was “jealous” of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s relationship with Tupac Shakur.
