Joy-Anna Duggar has become the target of some cruel words for the spot she chose to sit on a recent television appearance.
The moment took place during “Counting On: The After Show.” Duggar is seen sitting on her husband Austin Forsyth’s lap as he lay on a couch.
The photo caused an outcry from some fans because her bottom was on his crotch, The Hollywood Gossip reports. Making people even more outraged was the fact that she didn’t even try to hide her affection for her husband.
Fans were appalled that the couple, who married on May 26, would put on such a hot and heavy display.
Both are members of fundamentalist Christian families. Their religion has strict rules for couples before they marry — front hugs are banned (side hugs are OK), hand-holding is prohibited, and premarital sex is sinful.
Duggar and Forsyth couldn’t even kiss until their vows were done, making their wedding day the first time their lips touched.
According to the Christian Post, Duggar and Forsyth did confess to breaking a PDA rule before they were married by touching each other before they were allowed.
Austin admitted to “Counting On” reunion host Daphne Oz that the pair shared a full frontal hug when Duggar said yes to his proposal, which is a no-no:
“We’re humans and sometimes we don’t always abide perfectly by our rules.”
And those rules are out the window now.
Even though the pre-marriage rules no longer apply now that the 19-year-old Duggar and 23-year-old Forsyth are an officially married couple, not everyone is happy about their PDA.
On the Facebook page “Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray,” one viewer asked, “Do you think this pose is biblical?”
Who does this in public? She's sitting on his little willy. Once the Duggars get married they get obscene. Do you think…

From no frontal hugs or kissing before marriage to sex acts in public after. The Duggars never lack in irony.

Wasn’t she also bouncing or moving around on him too? I think I saw something like that, but the mind blocks out the unpleasant so…

You know people have questioned why on Earth these weddings happen so quickly. Well, wonder no more. These girls basically put these guys in blue ball hell and they start fornicating like it’s going to fall off!
Karen L. Austin came to the couple’s defense:
Oh what dirty minds you people have. She sat on him. I am sure you all did this or something similar to it and thought nothing of it.
The creator of “Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray” came right back to prove her point:
I admit I have a dirty mind but I keep it in my mind. I don’t try to arouse others in public as Joy is doing.
What do you think?
