Though the Duggar family members are known for their modesty, they do enjoy themselves behind closed doors. The Duggars are very conservative and grew up in a home with strict rules. Most of the Duggars have yet to open up about their lives in the bedroom.

In a recent blog post, Jill Duggar Dillard talks about how she keeps her marriage alive. Throughout the blog post, she details some of the ways that she works to keep things going smoothly in her marriage. While many of these are totally clean, a couple of them are NSFW (not safe for work).

The first tip that Jill suggests is to spend time in the bedroom. She adds, “3-4 times a week is a good start”. Then, she continues, “And when you may not be able to actually have intercourse for a period of time or for health issues, find other ways to have fun and be intimate. Let your spouse know that you’re always available. Guard against fulfilling sexual desires alone. Be open with your spouse about your desires and change things up to keep it exciting!” Of course, she also includes a couple of Bible passages.

Later in the blog post, she makes a point about getting new lingerie. She writes, “Get new lingerie (online is an easy way to buy!) as a surprise gift for birthdays, holidays, vacations or whenever!”

While these tips wouldn’t necessarily shock us if anyone else wrote them, it’s surprising that a former 19 Kids & Counting star would be this open about this topic. Jill grew up in a Christian household and waited until marriage to lose her virginity. Based on the family’s values, most will assume that bedroom talk is kept private.

What else does Jill Duggar Dillard suggest to keep your marriage alive?

Though this blog post got the most attention due to Jill’s suggestions for keeping your husband happy in the bedroom, it contained plenty of other points. In Jill’s five years of marriage, she has seemed to learn a lot so far. Some of these tips include being a good listener and taking some time to talk uninterrupted for 15 to 20 minutes each day. She also suggests going on dates.


Some of the tips on the list are pretty common, but Jill does make some unique points. In the comments on the Dillards’ blog, readers are asking for Derick to create a similar post. In response, Jill said, “I mentioned the idea to him…we’ll see!”

In the past, fans have speculated that Jill and Derick may be on the road to divorce. The new blog post has helped to eliminate some of those thoughts.
