Josh Duggar Admits Porn Addiction Led To Ashley Madison Affairs

By August 21, 2015 August 22nd, 2019 No Comments

This past week, hackers released detailed information from AshleyMadison.com, a hook-up site dedicated to helping married individuals find other married individuals to have sexual affairs with. Hackers had been threatening for weeks to release the information that includes names, addresses, locations, and even personal messages and sexual fantasies input by its user profiles. Eventually the hacker group posted the data online for all to see and one person found amongst users of the site was Josh Duggar, former reality star on TLC’s 19 Kids And Counting and a member of the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbyist group dedicated to preserving family values.

The 27-year-old responded this week on his family’s official website, saying, “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever.” Duggar then wrote about his addiction to pornography, which he considers the beginning of his problems.

“While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family…”

Duggar and his wife, who have been married for over 7 years and have four children together, have been in the news all summer after admitting that he had inappropriately touched underaged girls, including his sisters, when he was 14 years old. The victims then came forward and spoke about the past incidents that just recently came to the surface.

As a result of the increasing media scrutiny and exposed lies, TLC cancelled the long-aired reality TV show that originally made his family famous.

“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 in his statement addressing the abuse. “The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.”


As sad it is, we receive thousands of messages from porn addicts and their spouses all over the world, telling us how pornography tore their relationship apart. The fact of the matter is that porn truly does kill love. Research has found that after men are exposed to pornography, they rate themselves as less in love with their partner than men who didn’t see any porn. On top of that, another study found that after being exposed to pornographic images, people were more critical of their partner’s appearance, sexual curiosity, sexual performance, and displays of affection.
