Most young adults would be mortified if their parents sat them down along with their fiance for a lesson in kissing, but most young adults aren't Jessa Duggar.
Most parents aren't Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, either. That's putting it mildly.
As you know if you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, Jessa and Ben Seewald got schooled in lip locking this week by her folks, and it was cringe-worthy.
For us, at least. Jessa took it in stride as much as anyone could be expected to ...
The 22-year-old 19 Kids and Counting star, who is now married to Ben, sought out advice from Michelle and Jim Bob on the Tuesday, March 17 episode.
Above, the clip filmed before Jessa and Ben’s nuptials last November featured the Arkansas family patriarch and matriarch getting their learn on.
The Duggars, as fans know well, do not kiss or even engage in full frontal HUGS until they're married. So Jessa was still a kissing virgin at this point.
To wit, proud papa Jim Bob sought to impart his fountain of romantic wisdom.
“Both of you’ll like the physical relationship, but [for] the guy [it] will be kind of like the main focus,” patriarch Jim Bob told the soon-to-be married couple.
“But for a woman," he cautions. "Communicating is the most important thing, and so taking time each day to communicate, that will mean the world to her.”
It's definitely something to think about, the difference between the physical and the emotional connection, and how crucial communication is in a relationship.
Jessa and Ben went on to explain how they express their feelings to one another. “I think we communicate pretty well, what do you think?” Jessa asked.
“Yeah, we like to talk, but it’s more than just talking. You can be talking, but you’ve also got to communicate,” Ben added, and that is a key distinction.
Then it was time to dispense with the marriage counseling get down to business, as Jim Bob grabbed his wife to display how to properly kiss a woman.
Necessary head tilts and all. Hey, the man is a seasoned veteran at this.
It's unclear if Jessa and Ben took detailed notes, but the couple - who had their first kiss in private on their wedding day - appear to have figured it out.
