Teyana Taylor, Iman Shumpert Jr. and Iman Shumpert

Teyana Taylor says having a child has severely impacted her sex life with husband Iman Shumpert.

In an interview with Page Six, Teyana and Iman, both 27, put their sex life on hold because their 2-year-old daughter, Iman Shumpert, Jr. is going through the sometimes difficult “Electra complex” stage of child development.

The Electra complex is a sometimes fierce competition between a little girl and her mother (or other women) for the affection and attention of her father. The stage usually begins by age 2.

Teyana explained that the trouble started after she filmed her seductive shower scene with Iman in Kanye West‘s “Fade” music video.

“That was the closest that Iman and I got to doing anything that night. When we got home, Junie was c–k-blocking, she did not let us do anything. Do not let the shower scenes fool you! Don’t get it twisted — when we get it in, we get it in good — but when Junie is around, we can kiss that goodbye.”

Like most couples Teyana and Iman must schedule their intimate moments around those times when Junie is either distracted or asleep. That isn’t easy because Junie often demands she share their bed with them so she can compete with mommy for daddy’s affection.

“Junie falls asleep on my head. Even if Iman kisses me, she will move my face and kiss him, then she will bring me and his head together and we will do a three — way kiss — she has to be involved.”

Junie is at that age when little girls pass through that crucial Electra complex stage of competing with their mothers for the affection of their fathers. Remember that daddy is often a little girl’s first love object.

Big problems ensue when little girls don’t navigate properly through the Electra complex stage.

For instance, if a mother blocks or challenges the young girl’s affection for her father, the girl will grow to resent or hate her mother.

Girls who have problems at this stage often grow up to be lesbians or they seek relationships with men old enough to be their fathers.

Luckily, Junie has attentive and loving parents, so she will be just fine.

    That’s a given…that’s what babies do. I just hope Iman learned his lesson and don’t lose his entire family over some ran through poosay. He’s lucky she forgave him the other time. But, then again, men never learn. Hope he proves me wrong.

    Kids need both parents..a MOM and a DAD (one with a vag and one with a penus). I hate to see homes break apart.

  • MJF

    LOL um ok. I have no words.

  • Jane

    why must she always tell us about her sex life?

  • ShelbyMoore

    Cause that shat looks like its poppin. LOL

    So that’s what its called.

  • You Could Never

    I dont like them. She got a banging body and all. He a decent player. I jus dont like them.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    She had nothing else to talk about? Let’s not pretend like they have no nannies or family and crew around them alot. She’s really reaching in this article tho…

  • Cricket404

    My daughter had spidey senses to my punani, every time he touched me we would hear her feet hit the ground running to our room. She didn’t stop until she was 8.

  • Junkanoo

    Duh!!! it’s not even worth mentioning cause its common knowledge

  • Junkanoo

    cause as the Brits would say she’s dead common

  • Tiff J

    I like them as a couple. They seem really cute together. Young love. I hope that the reality show doesn’t break them apart. I’m rooting for them.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Yeah, that shower scene was everything!!!!! I was like DAMMMMMMMMMM…….

  • TMW

    Same. We called my daughter CB. She was grown when she told me her feelings were hurt when we called her that because she thought we were calling her a crack baby LOL! I told her it stood for c**k blocker because no matter the time of day or night, she just KNEW!

  • Slickone

    Awww that is too funny!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I’m sure it was the bed springs or headboard that she heard.

    lmaoooooo

  • tintin

    my son who is 6 is the same way to this day. Like he knows daddy wants some or mommy wants some. He’s the biggest blocker. Lets just hope Mr is not getting his needs satisfied elsewhere cause there are way too many rumours regarding his extracurriculars.

  • SumthinSweeter

    LMAO!!!!!!!

  • Cricket404

    Ha! She wouldn’t let us get past foreplay, we would give her the bed and go to the closet, basement or garage. Out of 6 kids, she was the only one who would wake up. We let her sleep with us too long, when she was a baby, we would get it on with her in bed. Sometimes on a pallet on the floor for a quickie. When she was 8, I put a lock on the door.

  • PhillyFacts

    What other qualities does she possess to brag about??? Don’t worry I’ll wait……………….lol

  • Cricket404

    We called our daughter CB too, “Here comes CB”, and boom the door would open. I had to put a lock on the door. She just stopped a year or so ago and she’s 10.

  • SG

    If this ain’t my daughter! She’s preferred him since birth. She’s now 4. She told me the other day that Daddy is my partner when we go to sleep at night so I should switch with her…sleep in her room so Daddy can be her partner. ??

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    The slowest news day eva…..?

  • bemetoo

    Yes teyana will be a lesbian in the future if she hasn’t already swim in the lady pool…she think she bad ole chip and Dale rescue rangers look ass

  • TMW

    It could be the middle of the night and my daughter could be dead asleep. She is a sound sleeper and can sleep through the vacuum being run, but not her parents quietly trying to have sex. It’s a Spidey sense, I truly believe that. And she didn’t care about me kissing or hugging her dad, but any other woman – his aunts or sister – she would physically push them away. It was the funniest thing.

    I know why Teyana is talking about it though – as a new parent, it’s pretty shocking to witness how girls bond with their dads, especially if the mom is the primary care giver.

  • jayhawkpride

    How can you not like somebody you don’t even know?

  • rayne215

    it passes. went though it when my daughter was 2-4. she always wanted to sleep with us cause she was “scared” its calmed down now. shes 6 lol

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Chile…

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Around 2007-2008 I went on a date with a guy I’ve know since I was a kid…he had a daughter around 8 at the time. We had just sat at the table to eat and he got a phone call from his babymomma saying he had to pick his daughter up cause she had to take a shift at work…we went from one part of my city to the other to pick the lil girl up and drop her off at his moms house then continue our date. Lil Girl sees me in the front seat, rolls her eyes, and gets in the car. The whole ride dynamic changed literally…she was talking too loud over the music and kicking my seat (I mean kicking like Rick James did to Eddie Murphy couch). Then she had the nerve to say “Daddy can I move up and you can put her in the back??”…Ole’ boy kept staring straight ahead. I turned looked at the girl, rolled my eyes and told him to take me home…He said “Ok after I drop her off” I said, “No nicca now!!” I aint have to say anything else… after my words that ride home was quiet as hell…he dropped me off and tried to ask he out again but I told him nah im good….idk if the girl had and Electra complex or what but she was gonna get her front teeth pushed back…

    Not trying to be judgmental but this how ppl invite the devil into their home. What you do n don’t do in your bedroom should remain strictly your business. There a lot of thirsty @ss ppl out there ready to take your place.

    Cute story and all the best to their family.

  • IamAllnatural

    When will women learn to not talk about their sex life. It’s too many vultures who don’t have respect for someone else’s relationship.
    Their baby is a cutie.

  • Kemi

    I just said the same thing!

  • IamAllnatural

    I agree, and their reality show is a terrible idea. They’re young, rich, and have a beautiful family and miserable people will try to ruin all of that.

    The Oedipus complex is the stage that boys complete successfully by identifying with their fathers. In the Oedipus complex, boys desire their mothers sexually, but they fear their fathers will castrate for having these desires, so boys quickly get over their desires for their mothers and make peace with their fathers. This is a troublesome stage for boys, because if they don’t resolve their identities by this stage, they grow up to be gay or seek relationships with women old enough to be their mothers, i.e. Usher.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    I’m sorry but when it comes to mummy getting the d**k…liddle Junie was gonna learn to love her bedroom and her bed. #JusSaying

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Because she’s smart enough to know that this is a teachable moment for young moms to realize all little girls go through this stage where they compete with their mothers for the affection of their fathers.

  • Bonsai

  • mark1984

    Thank you Sandra very much! Yes its me. I did not successfully complete that stage. And interesting enough, I find older women more compatible now.

  • Panther Charleston

    I think it’s Oedipal or Oedipus Complex.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No problem, Mark. I didn’t successfully complete the Electra complex stage.

  • Logan Roberts

    I went through something like this before during two separate relationships. And I told both men, I don’t compete with other women & damn sure not little girls.

    You too.

  • hottlanta

    Sounds like my fab movie Eve’s Bayou. Megan was waiting on dad to come home. Liz told her to take that azz to bed there is only one wife in this house and I will not be competing with my daughter for my husband’s attention. It is funny while daddy couples have no problem finding all kinds of ways to get it in. On top of the washing machine, sneaking up behind while you doing the dishes, in the garage, on top of the coffee table all kinds of stuff going on. Now you married and got a baby and you ain’t had sex in years. Pretty soon yall gonna be living like roommates.

  • hottlanta

    Betta say it. How is a married woman gonna be celibate by default.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Maaan I tell ya,wimmen share to much online and off especially about their personal life. It doesn’t just happen on soosha medeyah it often happens in the workplace where their is a bunch of females. They sit back and tawk about sex or the lack of….some wimmen are bold enuff to tawk about their sex with men around. I observe some men shaking their head with dissapproval. Maybe its me but I personally fine that kind of chatter so inappropriate. I have never openly tawked about my personal life (especially sex) in an open setting and I never will.

    Way too much information. I’m beginning to think celebrities are paid to leak provocative, shocking, or titillating information about themselves.

  • the guest

    It’s completely inappropriate.

  • the guest

    I too am a stickler for grammar, however I respect dialects and vernaculars, and the context of @Alex@alextraballard:disqus comment is clear and the message respectable. It is indecent to reveal intimate information about one’s self and marriage in public.

  • the guest

    Harsh.

  • the guest

    I thought that, but they are such a sweet family, I felt bad for thinking it. Lord knows, I can’t stand the fact that I don’t think he is faithful. He’s a “showy” kind of man and “showy” kind of men are rarely faithful. Their ego needs a variety of “female venues” to show out.

  • the guest

    Yep.

  • the guest

    I think he is and Teyana is the glue that keep this family tight. If they don’t make it for the long haul, her next man will value her for her mind. She a beautiful girl but I think she puts a lot of emphasis on her physical because she has a man that demands constant competing.

    Electra Complex? Sorry, but I smell BS. TO ME that is an excuse why you do not want to give your husband some. He may very well be getting it elsewhere thus this may be an excuse. I have a three year old and never had a problem with intimate time with my husband. She has her own room and knows to stay there at bed time. TO ME her statement sounds farce. I may be wrong.
