Josh Duggar, OKCupid, Ashley Madison, And Sex Addiction

Just when it seemed like the molestation situation with Josh Duggar and the Duggar family couldn’t get any creepier, new information is surfacing that 19 Kids and Counting star had an account with the cheating service, Ashley Madison, and with the dating service, OKCupid.

According to CNN, Josh Duggar is also acknowledging his hypocrisy and hinting that he might have a problem with sex addiction. Duggar’s Ashley Madison membership was brought to light along with that of many others when hackers made membership lists public over the last month.

As reported by the Inquisitr, over 30 million users of Ashley Madison are at risk of being outed by the hacker group, and Josh Duggar is the first celebrity member to be forced out into the open. The family values advocate had a paid Ashley Madison account, registered at his grandmother’s home address in Arkansas. After it was made public last month that Duggar had a history of molesting under-aged girls, including two of his sisters. The family rallied and said that Josh Duggar had reformed, but it’s assumed that they didn’t know about his current secret life.

According to Gawker, Josh Duggar had two different subscriptions to accounts with Ashley Madison, with the billing address of his grandmother, Mary, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The last subscription lapsed in May of 2015.

In a statement issued today, Duggar, while not admitting his current transgressions, released a statement.

“I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust,” Duggar said.

“As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example,” Duggar said in his Thursday statement. “I humbly ask for your forgiveness.”


According to RawStory, Duggar was seeking a variety of “services,” and was willing to pay $250 for a guaranteed affair. The account included a list that resembled a shopping list.

“Conventional Sex,” “Experimenting with Sex Toys,” “One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” “Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk,” are just some of Duggar’s preferences.

Josh Duggar is asking for forgiveness from God and from his wife and family.
