Rumer Willis courts in regards to the time she misplaced her virginity and the way she felt pressured
According to Rumer Willis, the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, she felt pressured to have sex for the first time. People Magazine reported on a clip from an upcoming episode of Red Table Talk in which the group of women touched on the idea of sexual consent.
The 32-year-old actress reflected on the time she felt “pressured” to have sex with an older man when she was only 18 years old. She says the man was dying to have sex while she wasn't ready to sleep together.
In the clip, Willis stated that when she was 18 she was more concerned about being ashamed of not having sex with anyone at that age. She says she was still a virgin when she was 18 and she was embarrassed.
Willis went on to say that she was not "raped" or "abused", but neither did she say "yes" or "no". She felt pressured to have sex and didn't blame the man for what happened between them. She said she "just let it happen" while Jada Pinkett and Willow listened carefully.
Rumer went on to say that she felt it was the "man's responsibility" to get in touch with her and see how she felt, but he never did. Also, because he was so much older than she was, she felt he could have done more to make her feel comfortable.
In addition to Willis, Amber Rose and Deandre Levy also touched on their experiences of non-consensual sex or the idea of being pressured without actually communicating one's feelings.
Pinkett Smith and her mother also explained their own experiences, and Adrienne Banfield-Jones, Jada's mother, explained how the time she had non-consensual sex with Jada's father. She described it as a "gray area" because it wasn't actually rape, but it wasn't consensual either.
As most know, Banfield-Jones has previously investigated her relationship with Jada's father, including in 2018 when she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence.
