JILL Duggar admitted that she uses “sex games” with her husband Derick Dillard to keep the “spark alive” in the bedroom.
When the interviewer remarked that was probably hard to do with little kids, Jill said “it is tough lol luckily our kids are little.”
“It’s good to keep a sense of humor about things. What might be embarrassing to a kid might not be to a teen,” Derick remarked.
“Marriage is a big aspect of what we feel like we want to encourage other couples in, like healthy marriages,” Jill added.
“So in that [YouTube] video. we definitely wanted to address our sex life and things that have helped us to prioritize like different games or questionnaires or date ideas.
“Stuff like that helps, like, to put the spark back in there in the stress of life, especially during Covid when you’re stuck at home and all that you can still keep the fire alive and you really need to.”
“If you don’t you’ll have bigger issues,” she concluded.
Derick then cut in to say that “sex and intimacy and finances are the biggest reasons for divorce” so they had to be “proactive.”
However, fans were left feeling like they’d gotten too much information as one remarked “they need to burn that bed frame” and another said they skipped that part for the sake of “self-care.”
“Omfg that was so bad,” complained a second viewer. “Thank you for this but f***ing barf.”
“Ah yes, the bed where. he r**** her in God-honoring Karma Sutra positions,” joked a third Redditor.
During the candid conversation, Jill also alluded to her own family issues when she remarked that it was important for couple’s to “recognize everyone has issues.”
The couple has even gone so far as to speak publicly about their sex life, increasing the divide between the reality star and her devout family.
In 2015, Jill claimed in an interview that she had been molested by her brother Josh when he was 14 and she was 11.
Yesterday, she pointed out that “there are issues in marriage you just have to be consistent and work through them,”
Likewise, Derick said that setting “realistic expectations” was key, especially with the stresses of social media, so it’s “important to work through it.”
The couple also discussed chatting about sex education early with their kids after Jill confirmed that she was educating her sons about sex from an early age.
“Someone else may address it with your kids if you wait so they’ll get it from somewhere else earlier even if they are young at public school or something,” Derick explained.
“I went to public school all the way through and kids these days.
“So we want to give them a healthy view so they can have more confidence when they go to school and they can hear stuff and be like ‘that’s wrong, I already know about it’ and that can give them confidence.”
