Porn Star Danica Dillon Says She Had “Terrifyingly Rough” Sex With Josh Duggar – Twice

The hits just keep on coming for Josh “Sanctity of Marriage” Duggar, as In Touch Weekly drops the latest news about the former 19 Kids and Counting star.

A porn star named Danica Dillon has come forward with details about two sexual encounters Josh Duggar had with her. Apparently, the two occasions occurred when Josh’s wife, Anna, was pregnant with their fourth child.

From In Touch Weekly:

Danica — who passed a polygraph test conducted for In Touch by a top certified polygrapher on Aug. 24 — details her two sexual encounters with Josh in the new issue of +In Touch+, on newsstands now. The first occurred after Josh approached her at the Gold Club in Philadelphia, where she was performing, in mid-March and the second only a month later when Danica was performing at Creekside Cabaret in Colmar, Pa.

“He walked into the Gold Club like a normal patron and said he’d been a fan for a long time and has watched my career grow — he even said from before my boob job until recently — and that he loved watching my very first scene on [an adult website],” she tells In Touch. “Then it got creepy.”

After watching her show and “eyeballing me,” Danica says he bought $600 in private dances and then “asked me how would he be able to spend the evening with me.” She reveals to In Touch that Josh was violent with her when they had sex, he did not use protection and gave her thousands of dollars after their encounters.

Danica admits she “took the opportunity because Josh offered to gift [her] $1,500.” But soon after Josh arrived at her hotel room, things got rough.

“He was manhandling me, basically tossing me around like I was a rag doll,” Danica, whose real name is Ashley Lewis, and although the sex was consensual, “It was very traumatic. I’ve had rough sex before, but this was terrifying.”

Josh, identified as one of the cheating spouses in the Ashley Madison hack, confirmed in a statement that he was unfaithful and had a pornography addiction: “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. 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 think that after I come out, there will probably be plenty more girls after me,” Danica tells In Touch. “I actually really hope that his wife leaves him and takes his children away from him and leaves him a lonely, bitter man. I don’t think he deserves happiness.”

Gay porn star Ryan Idol, aka Marc Anthony Donais, was convicted of attempted murder on Tuesday by a Sacramento Superior Court jury.

Donais, 45, was accused of using a toilet tank lid to batter his ex-girlfriend in the head in an attack at the woman’s home on Sept. 5, 2009. The adult film star, who identifies as bisexual although he performed in gay porn, and the woman had broken up before the incident.

During the trial, Donais testified that he thought his ex-girlfriend had a knife when they were in the bathroom, where she was taking a bath. He said he hit the woman in self-defense. Jurors, however, didn’t buy his argument.

Donais got his first big break when he appeared as the “Man of the Month” centerfold in the Playgirl issues of February 1989. He was considered a major gay porn star from 1990 to 1996, when he retired. His X-rated film titles include “Idol Eyes,” “Idol Worship,” “Idle Thoughts,” “Idol Country” and “Idol In The Sky.”

In 1999, Idol starred in the play Making Porn. Idol next played “Bill Tom” in the gay love story Scent of Rain, written by Mark Dunn, for which he was lauded for “continu[ing] to establish himself as a capable actor”. Idol made his Broadway debut when he played the “Crisco Patron” in the Roundabout Theater Company’s 2007 revival of Terrence McNally’s The Ritz.
