First, there was Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar popping out a small army of young fundamentalists.
Then there's the recent backlash over Jinger's wardrobe ... and Jill Duggar's brazenly kinky sex life.
It's clear that, despite an aversion to front-hugging or wearing pants, the family is no strangers to sex.
The distinction is that for the Duggars, sexual activity happens only within the confines of marriage.
This is fairly well established. Beyond that, they have all sorts of advice - both good and appalling.
For couples hoping to keep their marriages strong and enduring, here's what they have in mind.
[UPDATE: It seems not all Duggars agree on the best way to spice up a marriage -- and this may be causing some problems within the family!]
Take a look:
1. Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar Share a Drink
Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar enjoyed a drink together in what some would call a shocking public display of affection.
2. Attend to HIS Needs
Michelle thinks that it's a wife's duty to attend to her husband's needs -- from food to his wardrobe to the marital bed. And she thinks that keeping up with those needs is the secret to a healthy marriage.
3. But only one of those services is exclusive
"Anyone can iron Jim Bob’s shirt, anybody can make lunch for him," Michelle has said. "He can get his lunch somewhere else."
4. Her advice continues
"But you are the only one who can meet that special need that he has in his life for intimacy," Michelle's advice goes. "You’re it. You’re the only one." Interesting -- we're not sure if that worked out so well for Anna.
5. Be "Joyfully Available" to Bone
Michelle advises women -- well, wives: "And so be available, and not just available, but be joyfully available for him."
6. Service with a smile
"Smile," Michelle instructs. "And be willing to say, ‘Yes, sweetie I am here for you,’ no matter what."
