Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Seeing a Sex Therapist for One Particular Issue

Though their relationship is one that we never saw coming, after eight years together, almost six years of marriage, and four children later — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still going strong.

Despite their differing political views — West’s current walk in the Christian faith that has made him much more conservative, and Kardashian’s love for the spotlight — the pair have been able to maintain a marriage and a loving home for their children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Still, the rapper and makeup mogul aren’t perfect. In fact, they are currently seeing a sex-therapist for one specific issue.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have known each other for a very long time

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West did not begin their romantic relationship until 2012. However, they first met in 2002 when the Chicago-born rapper recorded a song with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s then-friend, Brandy.

“I vividly remember hanging out with him… He was asking his friends: ‘Who is this Kim Kardajan?’ He didn’t even know what my name was,” the starlet told Ryan Seacrest in 2017. The duo continued to cross paths until they became good friends in 2008 when they worked together on a pilot for a raunchy Star Wars-themed show entitled Alligator Boots.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have had some stressful moments in their marriage

Despite how perfect their lives might appear, Kardashian and West have had their issues. West’s bipolar disorder diagnosis caused the rapper to have a mental breakdown in 2016. That same year the KUWTK star was robbed at gunpoint, adding to their stress. All of this makes Kardashian weary of her husband’s non-stop lifestyle. “[Kim] is stressed dealing with his mood swings and manic episodes,” an insider told Radar Online. “He says he’s fine and doesn’t need help but Kim’s nervous so she’s making sure he’s under a watchful eye – or 5. They’ll report to her and if there’s any warning signs she’ll essentially send them in.”

Also, West’s newfound commitment to his faith has caused him to exhibit controlling behavior. An alleged insider revealed to Intouch Weekly,

 “The Jesus is King rapper is 100 percent more controlling now.” The source claimed that he is trying to keep Kim from doing anything that “he feels isn’t godly.” Apparently it’s making the Skims founder feel  “totally smothered” and that she “no longer has a voice.”

This is why Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are seeing a sex therapist

Like any couple, Kardashian and West have to work to maintain the spark in their relationship, especially with four kids and the rapper’s massive lifestyle change. “They tried counseling a couple of years ago, and it essentially saved their marriage,” an insider explained to Radar Online. “They’re hoping lightning can strike twice. They have therapy sessions at least once a week where they each vent about their frustrations to an expert, who gives tips about how to open up and communicate better. The therapist is giving them suggestions to put the sizzle back in their sex life.”

Marriage is work, and it looks like these two are in it for the long-haul, willing to do whatever they can to ensure their happiness.
