Okay, so dirty little secret-sharing time here.
First, a big disclaimer: I think what has been going on in the Catholic church is horrifying. I also am not a big fan of organized religion, particularly Catholicism, so this diary entry has nothing to do with advocating Catholicism, illegal sexual behaviour by priests, etc.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, then… I have a confession to make (pun intended).
I find priests just plain sexy. Ministers, priests, whatever. Priests a little more, for the purpose of fantasy, but that’s mainly because it’s forbidden, and how my psyche loves to wrap itself around that little word.
My girlfriends figured this out about me recently, and absolutely revel in teasing me about it. They love finding new examples of priests who turn me on.
My most recent crushes has involved Stephen Collins from 7th Heaven, Gabriel Byrne in Stigmata (oh, yum), Joaquim Phoenix in Quills (double yum), but a quick search around the ‘net also helped me to find images of Russell Crowe in The Quick and The Dead, Christopher Reeve in Monsignor, even Nicholas Cage in Face/Off.
For those of you who also enjoy erotica, there’s an incredible scene in Menage by Emma Holly which also goes along this theme, and it’s mind-blowing.
It got me to wondering just why I think it’s sexy. Here’s what I’ve figured out (stepping into fantasy here). There’s something, first of all, about all that denial, all that sexual tension just built up and built up for years and years. Imagine the sensitivity, the vulnerability, the incredible stretched-on-a-rack feelings he would have after all those years. And then there’s the forbidden-ness. The fact that while his cassock was being tented by an incredible erection, he would be saying no… or trying to.
Going for “confession” would be another part of it. And then, the whole capital punishment thing. I think spanking would definitely fit into this little scenario I’m cooking up in my brain.
Okay, I know I can’t be the only woman who finds this combination arousing, or The Thorn Birds would not have been so popular. While I can’t imagine seducing an honest-to-goodness priest, and role-playing has never been something I felt wholly comfortable with… oh, how I would clench and get juicy if a partner dressed up like this for me. Seriously. I’d go crazy.
