Former The Girls Next Door starlet Kendra Wilkinson seems to be anything but traditional when it comes to the boudoir. The sassy Sliding Into Home author – who’s second book Being Kendra: Cribs, Cocktails and Getting My Sexy Back comes out this week – dishes to US Weekly about the main topics in her follow-up book: Her battle with postpartum depression, her struggles to drop the baby weight and of course, her sizzling sex life with hubby Hank Baskett.
Kendra reveals that sex in the bedroom seems a little blah for the couple, who married in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion.
“[My husband Hank Baskett and I] try to limit being in the bedroom as much as possible,” Kendra divulges. “We think about sleep [there] instead of sex, so we venture off into different places like the kitchen and the Jacuzzi.”
So where does Hugh Hefner’s ex prefer to make love to her NFL superstar?
Hank and I had sex on a jet ski in Cabo! It was awesome… That’s the fun of it. Sex is sex… I’m not a PDA person, but I like sex in cars and stuff!”
Although the mom-of-one enjoys private time with her main man, she admits that her libido is swayed by sleep since the birth of her sweet son Hank IV in 2009.
“I love sex. But you know, it’s hard now with a baby. When you find that time, sex is not really the first thing you wanna think about. [It's] sleep!”
Life wasn’t always so exciting for this 26-year-old former Playboy playmate. In the weeks proceeding Hank Jr.’s birth in 2009, Kendra suffered the crippling effects of postpartum depression, finding it difficult to enjoy her new baby boy.
In her first book, the blonde bombshell reveals how she had suffered from depression and drug addiction in her past and in her second book, she discusses the unsettling similarities between those feeling and the postpartum depression she endured when her sweet son Hank IV made his debut in 2009.
I know this sounds selfish or whatever but it’s the truth. Like, I just felt that nobody…that everybody kinda went to the baby and was like where’s the baby, where’s the baby… baby, baby, baby, which was, that’s the way it should be but I felt like I was very alone and no one was kind of rubbing my back or asking how I was doing, how I was feeling. That wasn’t why I was depressed but that added to it. I felt like I was very alone.”
Kendra continues to discuss her struggles to lose the dreaded baby weight and the pressures to return to her svelte pre-baby body after Hank IV was born.
“I was 107 before I had baby Hank,” she reveals. “I was almost 170 by the time I had Hank. After giving birth, I was like oh, it’s gonna come right off, which 9 lbs and 5 oz did, but the rest sat there for 9 months.”
So is another baby in the couple’s future?
“Am I ready for a second baby? Yah,” Kendra reveals. “Am I ready right now? No.”
