The Duggar girls don’t just have to worry about having sex before marriage, they also have to worry about thinking about it!
So what’s it like actually being a Duggar daughter on TLC’s 19 Kids And Counting ? Well, the older girls have written a book that tells all. Rejoice!
Duggar Daughters: ’19 Kids & Counting’ Girls Talk Sex In New Book
If you’re like me, you can watch hours upon hours of TLC’s 19 Kids And Counting and never get bored, which is pretty crazy considering the lives of the ever-growing Duggar fam are super boring by conventional societal standards. No magazines, no TV, no dating, no sex… the list goes on. Still, as much I want to turn away, my eyes stay glued to the screen, kind of like with Miley and her hand dildo. Can’t. Not. Look.
As part of their religion, which is based on the Quiverfull movement of Christianity, Jana, 24, Jill, 22, Jessa, 21, and Jinger Duggar, 20, are expected to one day get married and produce as many children as God deems to bless them with. This means no birth control or contraception of any kind.
However, until they are married, they aren’t even supposed to THINK about anything associated with baby making! “It’s easy to put yourself into physical and moral danger and give into those emotions or sensual thoughts that promise pleasant, but only temporary, fulfillment,” the girls explain in their tell-all book Growing Up Duggar.
But how do they avoid those thoughts when do come? “By censoring our thoughts through the filter of God’s word, we will be able to recant any wrong thoughts or temptations that try to sneak in.”
So basically I’m picturing sex thoughts creeping up and then being battled by Bible verses with swords.
Even It The Duggars Are Different, They’re Still Just Like Us
Even though the Duggars’ lifestyle is far from the norm, the girls admit in the book that they still have the same problems as normal folks. From eating disorders to sibling rivalry to having trouble finding the right outfit, the girls are working through the process of growing up, just like us.
“You may think that kids like the Duggars, who are homeschooled and don’t watch TV or read secular magazines, are immune from feelings like that,” the girls reveal, “But we’re not!’
