Jill Duggar Clarifies Controversial Kama Sutra Instagram Post, Says She Doesn’t Recommend It

There’s really nothing that Jill Duggar can post on Instagram without getting criticized. Even her seemingly innocent posts about her kids, fashion choices, and meals get completely ripped to shreds by fans and haters alike. She must have very thick skin to stay on social media.

Despite all the negativity, Jill Duggar continues sharing her unique advice with her fan base. In the past, she’s credited her strong marriage with a few key tips, including having sex at least three to four times per week. That revelation was shocking enough—as a member of a strict conservative religion, it was a little surprising to see Jill discussing her private sex life. But when she started advocating using Kama Sutra in the bedroom, fans absolutely lost their minds.

The backlash on the Kama Sutra post was so bad that Jill posted an update clarifying her position on the practice. Here’s what she said.

Jill and Derick recently shared photos from their steamy anniversary trip

The post that started it all was part of a series of photos from Jill and Derick Dillard’s 5 year anniversary getaway. The couple makes no secret of using sexual intimacy to keep their marriage solid, which is something Jill’s mother Michelle Duggar advocates for as well.

But fans wonder if Jill Duggar is revealing too much about what she and her husband do behind closed doors. The photo post from their Branson, Missouri trip showed photos of the couple enjoying meals together and other innocent antics. Then there was one photo of a sexual-themed game called “Win It in a Minute: Bedroom Edition” next to a book called “The Little Black Book of Kama Sutra.”

We had a wonderful 5yr. anniversary weekend in Branson, MO! We stayed at a bed and breakfast, then hung out at Silver Dollar City part of the time and saw our friends @southernraisedbandmusic perform. . . Derick surprised me with an amazing dinner (& lovely view!) @thekeetercenter at #collegeoftheozarks (highly recommend! Such a neat place! ) #hardworku @sierrasaffle . . . Thanks @datingdivas for the fun games and ideas! If you don’t know about them, check them out!! They’ve got lots of fun, clean, date/marriage tips and ideas! ❤️ . . We ended our trip with a fun afternoon at the movies watching #toystory4 lol . . Thanks @cldilla & Bawpaw for keeping the boys! . . ( Note: We are not recommending the Kama Sutra. We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense 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. 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). We just wanted to clarify since there has been a lot of discussion after this post.❤️)

Fans were outraged. “No offense to y’all but I don’t want to know what goes on in between the sheets! Please keep it PG remember you were raised a Christian,” said one user. “Some things should be private and that’s it,” another commenter agreed.

Then a few fans took things a step further, saying the Indian Hindu practice was dangerous for devout Christians. “Am surprised you would read the Kama Sutra, it is Hindu. You are inviting Satan into your marriage,” one commenter wrote.

Usually Jill Duggar ignores hate comments—responding to every single one would become a full-time job. But the 28-year-old Counting On star received so many questions on the post that she was forced to clarify her position on using Kama Sutra and sexual morality in general.

Jill Duggar updated the post on June 29, saying, “Note: We are not recommending the Kama Sutra. We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense of the Bible and not practice anything unbiblical.”

She continued to justify promoting the book.
