'19 Kids and Counting' Duggar Family Gives Sex Tips

| by Michael Allen

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have had 19 children, who are their co-stars on the TLC reality TV series “19 Kids and Counting.”

Jim Bob and Michelle don't allow their adult children to hold hands until after an engagement or kiss until they are married, but the conservative Christian clan has some sex tips for America.

“In your marriage there will be times you’re going to be very exhausted,” Michelle told the “Today” show in February.

“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," added Michelle. "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.”

Daughter Jill (Duggar) Dillard, who recently married Derick Dillard, told Page Six, "You may not wanna push the wedding date out too far as those natural God-given desires with too much time between engagement and marriage can make it harder to remain pure If you are financially ready, and things are in place, we believe an engagement should only be long enough to plan a wedding!”

Jill, who is pregnant with her first child, signaled that she is like her mom and won't be using birth control: "We knew that we weren’t going to prevent having children, so when we found out we were expecting within our first month of marriage, we were thrilled!”

Duggar daughters Jana, Jessa, Jill, and Jinger, who were all virgins when they wrote the book “Growing Up Duggar," included this sex advice in their bestseller:

When we say true love waits, we mean that couples should not act like they’re married when they’re not or share physical intimacies that married couples share. Also, it’s important to never consider living together until you are married, as this is clearly not God’s will.

Jim Bob stated his romance/marriage tips on TLC.com:

Ask your wife what home repair projects would be important to her and be sure to get them done!

Be fruitful and multiply.
