The Duggar family is not exactly known for being very sexual. In fact, they are commended for being the opposite. The family rose to fame because of the number of children they had, but also because of their chaste, serious conservative values. Now that Counting On star Jill Duggar has moved on and married Derick Dillard, she has become more open about her sexuality.

Jill Duggar and Dereck Dillard have an active sex life

In the beginning of Duggar and Dillard’s relationship, the two weren’t even allowed to be alone together or kiss. They have come a long way since then.

In a new YouTube video to promote the app, Intimately Us, the couple talked about their “good sex life.”

The video also showcased Dillard and Duggar’s date with their children and gave parents a warning as certain parts of the video would discuss the app, which is “definitely for married couples.”

During the course of their family date, the topic of birth was brought up.

“Do you know how you got born?” Dillard asked their kids, Israel David and Samuel Scott. “We had a date and then you started growing inside of mommy’s tummy.”

Duggar joined in on Dillard’s codeword for sex.

“We had a bunch of dates,” she added.

“We did have four dates in one day I think … that one time,” Dillard continued.

“We have a good sex life,” Duggar whispered to the camera before changing the topic.

Later in the video, while the kids were having reading time, the pair shared that the app helps them have private time even when they are busy with their sons.

“This app can really help you maintain some focus and a certain center of gravity to your love life whenever you have good distractions, not that the kids are a bad distraction,” Dillard said.

Derick Dillard’s tips to a good sex life

This isn’t the first time that the couple has spoken about their sex life. In 2019, Dillard wrote a blog post called Hot Love: How to Love Your Wife Like You Mean It, detailing how to keep your marriage hot and steamy.

“You both need this time together regularly (5-6 times (or more) a week is a good start),” he wrote. “Guys, you need to keep yourself ‘joyfully available’ for your wife, because only you can fulfill certain desires she might have.  1 Corinthians 7:4 teaches that the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.  We tend to focus on the first part of this verse, but often neglect the second half.  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.”

He also said that married people should always be available to their spouses for intimate moments.

“Let your spouse know that you’re always available,” he continued. “Guard against fulfilling sexual desires alone. Be open with your spouse about your desires and change things up to keep it exciting! (Philippians 2:3-4; 1 Corinthians 7:5) If you’re struggling with sex with your spouse, GET HELP! See a doctor and/or licensed counselor and don’t be afraid to get second opinions!”
