Although they love to go on and on about modesty, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar sure don't mind sharing TMI details about their sex life on national TV. The couple constantly brags about how they're "trying" for yet another kid (yes, we do know where babies come from, but thanks for the visual) and Jim Bob's pre-wedding "sex talk" with son Josh Duggar is still one of the most cringeworthy things I've ever seen on TV.This week's episode, though, brought a whole new level of ick.

Increasingly desperate for storylines now that Michelle isn't constantly giving birth, TLC has sent the family to England, Ireland, and Israel, and they did an episode about the family's mission trip to El Salvador.

A Duggar Neighbor Posts His Thoughts on Reddit

This week, Reddit did an AMA with someone who lives near the Duggar family in Arkansas - offline, a moderator verified his name and identifying details before letting him field reader questions. Here are a few of … [Read more...]
