The controversial cover was accompanied by a number of other shots including a full frontal snap of the reality TV star.
Now, Editorial Director Mickey Boardman has spoken about the NSFW cover, revealing that it was Kim’s idea to strip off completely for the shoot with French photographer Jean-Paul Goude.
Speaking to Yahoo! he explains: “Kim’s attitude was, 'If we're gonna do it, let's really go there'.
"And it was her idea to take off her clothes and show more than her butt. We [Paper] didn't say, 'Let's do a cover with your butt hanging out’.
"She said she was willing to take her clothes off and one thing lead to another."
The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star certainly isn’t afraid of showing off her figure and she’s admitted that she thinks its important to flaunt your figure.

Kim’s magazine cover has sparked plenty of discussion since it was revealed earlier this week, and obviously, a number of memes have been circulating.
US talk show host Chelsea Handler has given her take on it, by recreating the pose in her bathroom and sharing the snap on Instagram.
