Over the last decade, Kim Kardashian has developed a public persona that's synonymous with sexy. From naked photo shoots to her countless skintight ensembles, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star isn't afraid to own her sultry side.

However, in some surprising news, Kardashian reveals that she's actually uncomfortable discussing sex, adding that what she puts out on social media and the red carpet doesn't mirror her private life.

"It's actually funny, at home I’m much more conservative than my public persona is," the mom of three said in a new interview with Bret Easton Ellis for Richardson, where she modeled a latex thong and posed topless on the cover.

"My public persona is wild, sexual. But I’m actually uncomfortable when I talk about sex, and I’m more conservative when it comes to that. But I think motherhood has actually made me more confident about being publicly sexy."

The KKW Beauty mogul also commented on the leak of her 2007 sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J, and how she didn't let it define her.

"Everyone deals with things differently, and I seem to deal with things—whether the sex tape, the robbery, even the death of my dad, who was the most important person in my life—I push to just overcome it," she continued. "I just don't have a victim mentality. That's never been my personality."

It's true, we don't recall Kim discussing her sex life with husband Kanye West, except when they were trying for baby no. 2 in 2016. Kim admitted that they have sex "500 times a day" to her sister Khloé's horror.
