Setting the record straight! Duggar fans were ~shook~ when Jill Duggar took to Instagram earlier this week to let fans in on what kind of fun she had with her husband, Derick Dillard, during a little getaway to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. One of the pictures that Jill, 28, shared included a book on the Kama Sutra — which seemed very raunchy for the conservative Christian couple. But now, Jill took to Instagram to explain why she and Derick, 30, decided to use the book and its teachings.
“For those who saw this post and all the comments about the Kama Sutra… We wanted to clarify!” Jill wrote in a post on her Instagram Story, redirecting fans to her original Instagram post with an updated caption.
“(📚 Note: We are not recommending the Kama Sutra,” Jill wrote in the new caption on Instagram. “We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the [lens] 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.❤️)”
Jill’s response came after fans were shocked that she and her husband would be interested in the Kama Sutra, which is an ancient Indian Sanskrit text on sexuality, eroticism and the original book references various Hindu beliefs. “Am surprised you would read the Kama Sutra, it is Hindu. You are inviting Satan into your marriage,” one fan wrote, and another commented, “Kama Sutra? Interesting … definitely rooted in Hinduism. Healthy sex life is a good thing in a marriage, but be careful.”
