She may blush talking about “anything past the word sex,” but Kendra Wilkinson has no qualms about explaining her Playboy past and teen drug abuse to son Hank Baskett, Jr. — when the time is right, of course.
For the former Girl Next Door, being open and honest about her experiences with Hank Jr., now 20 months, is her way of preparing her son for things that he’s likely to deal with in the future.
“The drugs that I went through and Playboy — it’s all stuff that he’s going to face on his own anyway, so why not talk about it and beat everybody to the punch,” Wilkinson tells News.com.
“I want him to learn about it before everyone else teaches him about it in the wrong way,” she explains. “I’m that type of person and I think it’s better to talk than not to in this day and age.”
That’s not to say that it won’t be a difficult conversation….
Despite her willingness to discuss her sex life with hubby Hank Baskett, Wilkinson says that she’s “more conservative than people think.”
“To tell you the truth, whenever I used to pose for Playboy I used to get so scared and I used to cover up and I’d be like ‘hurry up!’” the Being Kendra author reveals. “I was very proud, but at the same time I never got used to being naked. I never did and I will never do it again.”
