Jill Duggar Dillard hasn't shied away from revealing what she and her husband Derick do to keep things exciting in the bedroom.


As fans of the TLC star know, Jill hasn’t been shy to reveal what she and her husband Derick Dillard do to keep things exciting in the bedroom.

In June, the mom of two revealed how she keeps her marriage successful by providing her followers with some tips in a blog post on the Dillard Family website, including how imperative it is to have sex often.

“You both need this time together regularly (3-4 times a week is a good start),” she wrote in the post.

“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,” she explained. “Guard against fulfilling sexual desires alone. Be open with your spouse about your desires and change things up to keep it exciting!”

Jill also suggested getting “new lingerie (online is an easy way to buy!) as a surprise gift for birthdays, holidays, vacations or whenever.”


A few weeks later, the reality star and her husband, 30, celebrated their five-year wedding anniversary with a trip to Branson, Missouri.

While their weekend was filled with many activities, it was the couple’s time in the bedroom that particularly stood out to many of her fans.

One of the photos in Jill’s Instagram recap slideshow included a snap of their sexy bedroom setup, which featured the Kama Sutra, a massage oil candle, a plate of Skittles and a game scorecard that had “Bedroom Edition” written across the top.

Some of Jill’s fans later criticized her for sharing her sex life so publicly and reading the Kama Sutra, which has roots in Hinduism and includes chapters on same-sex and group sex relationships and when adultery is deemed acceptable — both of which conflict with Bible teachings.


In response to the backlash, Jill added a note at the bottom of her post and defended her and Derick’s decisions.

“We are not recommending the Kama Sutra,” she wrote. “We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense [sic] of the Bible and not practice anything unbiblical.”

“The little book pictured is a modern, smaller, cleaner, edited version that doesn’t focus on spiritual aspects, homosexual, or other extramarital relationships, and again, we don’t take everything in there either as the truth,” the mom of two added. ‘It is always good to be aware and careful of what we allow into our minds, hearts and marriages.”

“We’ve not read the actual Kama Sutra and only promote biblical marriage (i.e. between a man and woman who are married),” she finished. “We just wanted to clarify since there has been a lot of discussion after this post.️”

Jill and Derick were married on June 21, 2014 before a congregation of more than 1,000 family and friends in her hometown of Springdale, Arkansas. The couple have two children — sons Israel David, 4, and Samuel Scott, 2.
