If a shirtless Padre Oprah (the Rev. Alberto Cutié) was racy, I can’t imagine how cable news would describe a Polish priest whose book on sex urges couples to keep it “saucy and fantasy packed.”
In “Sex as you don’t know it: For married couples who love God,” the Rev. Ksawery Knotz writes: “Every act - a type of caress, a sexual position - with the goal of arousal is permitted and pleases God. During sexual intercourse, couples can show their love in every way, can offer one another the most sought after caresses.”
More from The Telegraph:
Sex in marriage, Father Knotz explains, should not be boring but “saucy, surprising and fantasy packed”.
Available through one of Poland’s biggest retail chains, the book, which has the backing of the Catholic Church in Poland, has become something of hit, with the publishers already contemplating a reprint. Stating his reasons for writing the book, Father Knotz said that there was a need to address issues such as sex, which in the past the Catholic Church may have considered taboo.
He added that he also wanted to get away from the staid attitude that many in the Church have towards sex.
“I compare sex to a football match,” he said. “There are rules, for example you can’t foul or kick the ball out. However, what goes on on the pitch may involve matches of different standards, different leagues. There can be fantastic matches as well as boring ones.”
It’s become a bit of a trend in evangelicals churches in recent years for pastors to give purportedly provocative talks on hot Christian sex—for husbands and wives, of course. Remember the 30-day sex challenge? But it’s quite unusual for a priest to publish the Catholic Kama Sutra, especially without Church approval.
