We need to talk about the Duggars‘ sex lives. As fundamentalist Christians who are often lumped as members of the Quiverfull movement, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar laid down some pretty strict rules for their kids when it comes to sex — which is just abstain until marriage.
However, once they say “I do,” they literally run down the aisle together as husband and wife into, hopefully, healthy sexual lives — and to prove it, all of the Duggar kids love to post PDA pics of them making out with their spouses on social media. Keep scrolling to see what the Duggars have said over the years about sex, masturbation and more.
Get Married Young
Derick Dillard made a joke about sex after a fan asked his wife, Jill Duggar, why members of her family seem to “rush” into married life at a young age.
The comment came after Jill’s younger brother, Justin Duggar got engaged to Claire Spivey less than two months following news of their courtship.
“Why do you guys rush to marry life. He’s a kid and Claire too!!!” the Instagram user commented, to which Derick bluntly replied, “Because we want to have sex.”
Keep It Spicy
Jill got candid about her kinky bedroom antics with Derick while celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary.
The couple left their two sons, Israel and Samuel, with Derick’s parents before embarking on a romantic getaway at a bed and breakfast in Branson, Missouri, where they saw a concert and enjoyed an “amazing dinner.” Later, they retired to their room to play some seduction games.
The mom of two shared a black-and-white photo to Instagram of their sultry setup, which featured the Kama Sutra (a guide to lovemaking), a massage oil candle, Skittles and a “Bedroom Edition” game scorecard. She also encouraged her fans to check out the Dating Divas Instagram account, which she said offers “lots of fun, clean, date/marriage tips and ideas!”
Dress to Impress
To set the mood, Jill suggested getting “new lingerie (online is an easy way to buy!) as a surprise gift for birthdays, holidays, vacations or whenever,” she wrote in a blog post on the Dillard Family website in June 2019.
Have Lots of Sex
Jill knows priorities in a marriage shift over time — particularly with the addition of children — but she insisted on doing the deed … a lot. “You both need this time together regularly (3-4 times a week is a good start. lol),” she added.
Hmm! In the same blog post, Jill warned against masturbation, adding that couples should “guard against fulfilling sexual desires alone.” Instead, she suggested, “Be open with your spouse about your desires and change things up to keep it exciting!”
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help
“Like a fire, sometimes, and more so during some seasons than others, you need to be intentional, proactive and work hard to keep the fire going,” Jill continued.
If communication, games and trusted advice don’t seem to be making a difference, Jill encouraged couples to seek help and “see a doctor and/or licensed counselor … if you’re struggling with sex with your spouse.”
Michelle’s Outdated Advice
During a 2014 interview with Today, Michelle gave some pretty shocking marital advice to wives. “In your marriage, there will be times you’re going to be very exhausted. Your hubby comes home after a hard day’s work, you get the baby to bed, and he is going to be looking forward to that time with you. Be available,” Michelle said. “Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls.”
