Khloé Kardashian claims Kris Jenner showed her STI photos to prevent teen sex
Khloé Kardashian is a doting mother to 2-year-old daughter True but she once feared pregnancy, thanks to a graphic teen sex talk from mom Kris Jenner.
"I was so afraid of getting pregnant," Khloé said of her teenage self during a Wednesday episode of Lady Parts, an Ellentube talk show hosted by actress Sarah Hyland and OB/GYN Dr. Sherry Ross, where she was joined by sister Kourtney Kardashian. "My parents scared the s*** out of me and would show me like, 'This is herpes' and would show me photos. I remember my mom made me look at — oh my god, I had to look at all these visuals, and if I had sex, this is what was going to happen to me and so I was so afraid."
Although Khloé, 36 and Kourtney, 41, were discouraged from having premarital sex, Khloé said she approached Kris about using the birth control pill, news that was dulled by the experience of her older siblings.
"She took me to the doctor, we got birth control pills and I remember feeling a lot safer," said Khloé. "Because I didn't want to be a teen mom, I didn't want to get pregnant before I was ready to really get pregnant and understand those responsibilities fully."
Kourtney added, “Khloé and I have different memories. We're only five years apart, but we were always told you don't have sex until you're married. It wasn't even, like, an option.”
The sisters also said the undertones of sex education were less self-pleasure and more a "natural progression that you do in life," said Khloé. "When you're younger, it's so much about focusing on somebody else, are you doing something good enough for somebody else? It's more so pleasing your partner, which is also OK, but I definitely think it was less about, the focus on pleasing me."
While Jenner has not responded to Khloé's claims, she has admitted that her daughter had an accidental intro to sex education. Last year, in a promo for Momsplaining with Kristen Bell, Jenner said, "Khloé and her girlfriend were playing hide and go seek, so they hid under my bed," Jenner confessed, laughing the whole time. "But it happened to be late at night, as I was going to bed. And so they learned about the birds and the bees from being underneath my bed when it was being used. Let’s just put it that way." Oops.
Khloé, who shares True with Boston Celtics player Tristan Thompson, has explored her fertility options. As explained on Lady Parts, she underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF) three different times, the process of removing eggs from a woman's body and mixing them with sperm, then implanting the fertilized eggs into the uterus. She also froze about 12-14 eggs but none survived.
After another round of IVF, Khloé said, "We realized that my eggs aren't strong enough to be frozen. They should be mixed immediately with sperm to make embryos. So I actually have made embryos." She added that the COVID-19 pandemic has made family planning more complicated. According to The Guttmacher Institute, a research and policy organization, more than 40 percent of women changed plans for the number of children, or to have children at all, because of the pandemic.
"They say, 'If you want to make god laugh, tell him your plans," she said.
