Former “19 Kids and Counting” star and admitted child molester Josh Duggar had not one, but two accounts on AshleyMadison.com, a website that helps married individuals have secretive affairs.
The revelation came as part of the hacked information dump that is currently plaguing the exposed website and its members. Gawker posted the news and some evidence of the accounts belonging to the former family activist on Wednesday.
“Someone using a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Ark. owned by his grandmother Mary — a home that was consistently shown on their now-canceled TV show, and in which Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child — paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015,” Gawker stated.
The article continued: “In July 2013, he seems to have started a second account that was linked to his home in Oxon Hill, Md., where he spent his time lobbying against causes like same-sex marriage. The birthday listed in the data for Duggar’s first account is Feb. 3, 1988, one month off Duggar’s actual birthday of March 3, 1988. The birthday listed for the second account is March 2, 1988.”
The two accounts overlapped by a couple of months. The investigation also found that when Duggar launched the second account, he ponied up an extra $250 for an apparent “affair guarantee.” Here is that literature: “Customers who buy 1,000 credits for $250 receive a money-back'”affair guarantee,’ if they don’t have an affair within three months.”
And here is that billing information, which was offered up as proof of Duggar’s identity:
Gawker also pulled Duggar’s preferences for an extramarital affair partner from his profile(s):
“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.”
They also broke out his turn-ons:
“A Professional/Well Groomed,” “Stylish/Classy,” “Casual Jeans/T-shirt Type,” “Muscular/Fit Body,” “Petite Figure,” “Tall Height,” “Short Height,” “Long Hair,””Short Hair,” “Girl Next Door,” “Naughty Girl,” “Sense of Humor,” “Imagination,” “Creative and Adventurous,” “Relaxed and Easy Going,” “Aggressive/Take Charge Nature,” “Confidence,” “Discretion/Secrecy,” “A Good Listener,” “Good Personal Hygiene,” “Average Sex Drive,” “High Sex Drive,” “Dislikes Routine,” “Has a Secret Love Nest,” “Disease Free,” “Drug Free,” and “Natural Breasts.”
Finally, Gawker shared the raw data from Duggar’s second account, which may mean that his user name was “JOSH_THE_MAN” and/or possibly “READY4THISDC.”
Here is that data:

TLC did not immediately respond to TheWrap‘s request for comment on the latest allegations against its former star. The Discovery cable channel canceled its top-rated show in July after yanking the show from the schedule two months earlier.
TheWrap also reached out to the Family Research Council, where Duggar used to hold a high post, but did not immediately receive a reply there either. The FRC is based on the east coast, so its offices may have been closed for the day by the time news broke.
Following reports that he had been accused of molesting multiple underage girls — including several of his own sisters — Duggar admitted in May: “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends.”
He added: “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
At the time, his wife supported him. “And when you, our sweet fans, first met me when Josh asked me to marry him … I was able to say, ‘Yes’ knowing who Josh really is — someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended,” she wrote on Facebook. “Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right. I want to say thank you to those who took time over a decade ago to help Josh in a time of crisis. Your investment changed his life from going down the wrong path to doing what is right.”
At the time, Duggar resigned from his post with the Family Research Council, where he served as executive director of the organization’s legislative affiliate FRC Action.
In Touch Weekly initially reported on the allegations against Duggar, saying that his father had brought Josh to the Arkansas State Police when he learned his son had engaged in inappropriate behavior after catching him leaving a young girl’s bedroom; however, according to In Touch, prosecutors were prevented from completing their investigation due to a “bizarre turn of events.”
According to TMZ, Duggar, now 27, was accused of molesting five underage girls, including some of his sisters, in 2002 and 2003, allegedly fondling the girls’ genitals and breasts. The incidents were reported to police in 2006, and at this point the alleged acts fall outside the statute of limitations.
