Former “19 Kids and Counting” star Josh Duggar has allegedly been discovered owning two paid memberships to Ashley Madison, a website that arranges married individuals to engage in sexual affairs. Ashley Madison was recently attacked by hackers; yesterday, the hackers released the personal data for as many as 32 million users, including names, credit card numbers and email addresses.
According to mic.com, Duggar held two subscriptions from February 2013 to May 2015. The subscriptions were cancelled around the time that Duggar admitted to sexually molesting five underage girls, including four of his younger sisters, when he was a teenager. The show “19 Kids and Counting” was permanently taken off the air after the scandal emerged.
Gawker reports Duggar paid a total of $986.76 for his Ashley Madison subscriptions. The subscriptions were registered to a credit card with the name Joshua J. Duggar and a billing address to an home owned by his grandmother in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Duggar also purchased a $250 “affair guarantee,” insurance that promised an affair within three months or his money back.
Duggar’s Ashley Madison profile reportedly said, "Let's just see where this goes! I'm looking to have a steamy affair. I want to have a good time with someone who is passionate... and see where it leads!"
The reality star and former Family Research Council executive profile said he was interested in pursuing, “conventional sex, experimenting with sex toys, one-night stands, sensual massage, oral sex, sharing fantasies, sex talk,” and more.
There is no evidence that Duggar succeeded in having an extramarital affair during his time subscribed to the site.
