Gay priests and monks

Has anyone attended seminary or even gotten as far as the priesthood or monastery? Is there a lot of gay sex going on there? Is it hot?

If you're in NYC, head over to St. Francis of Assisi Church by Penn Station for your answer.

[quote]their vows of chastity %0D %0D Priests who belong to orders (Franciscans, Jesuits, etc.) take vows. But what about diocesan priests? What vows do they take? Or do they just sign some type of contract?

Remember asking the same question of a young, hot assistant pastor in my hometown church when I was 12. His answer, which I didn't understand the subtleties of at the time, was that, "I took a vow of celibacy, not of chastity." My sister, an ex-nun, rather scornfully said that one was understood to be the other. Apparently, that was not the case in his seminary. Ironically, she is now a militiant out lesbiean, and he is still a diocescan priest. Go figure!

Well, chastity outside of marriage is not allowed (or 'sinful') for anyone that follows the church teachings anyway, so prohibiting sex outside of marriage would be redundant. Of course, that's all theory.

I had a housemate that was in the seminary studying to be a priest. He said he suspected there would be at least some homosex dalliances going on there, but when he finally realized the extant of the gay sex going on, there he was shocked... and did some dallying himself. He left the seminary & decided not to become a priest, but for years after an ancient, bald priest he knew from there would come around to our house looking to get him to a hotel for some action. Priests are hideous horndogs.

I dated a priest once. He was a good-looking preppy guy who told me he was a teacher at a local Catholic university. He didn't tell me initially he was a priest, but it came out soon enough, as he talked about all things Catholic a lot. While we were dating, he told me lots of stories about all the gay sex in the seminary and amongst other priests when he would go to visit other cities. I soon discovered he was a manipulative liar who was wildly promiscuous. I was young when we dated and I swore off sex for a while after him.

The guy I worked with used to live next door to an RC priest who was in charge of the church's charity finances. He's now in prison for embezzlement, but not molestation. He used the money to fund a Rolls Royce lifestyle. The noise from the boys in his spa pool kept the neighbours awake. Inside (I visited when he sold it to move into a bigger place and you could tour it) it resembled a gay sauna...if a gay sauna catered for nine year old asian boys. You entered through a long conservatory which opened to a large covered courtyard, the centrepiece of which was a spa pool with statues of cherubs at its corners. This led to bedrooms, in each of which was a picture of the Pope, and a pair of boy's asian sandals by the bed. You couldn't make it up!

Diocesan priests don't take a vow of poverty. I knew one who owned two businesses, but they do promise to be not to suck or fuck. The RC priest who became an Episcopalian and now has a talk show was outed when photographed on the beach with the girlfriend he eventually married.

I dated a seminarian and we made out in the bell tower of the large seminary chapel at night. Most of the seminarians were gay and accustomed to such "visits." This was an archdiocesan seminary, but I also knew gay (out and wild) Jesuits, Marianists, and Franciscans. The head of the Franciscan Friary here was rather horrid - he would take money from the order and the parish the friary was at and pay for his boyfriends' apartments and travel, including outside the country.

My seminarian boyfriend left soon after, and ended up being a confused and dishonest ass. He married, then divorced and lived a gay life with a partner, but always was dishonest in it. Many years later a masseur I knew was talking about a trick in from out of town and it turned out to be my ex-love.

I had one priest, principal of a large, private boys' high school, ask for me to be his boyfriend. He was willing to hire me as a teacher. I said, "No."

Was he the boytoy of the Bishop of Miami? The whole thing seems bizarre.

Here's the lowdown on the Catholic Rite churches who report to the pope but who have non-celibate parish priests. And yet they are allowed to perform any Catholic functions in an RC church. So according to the whole Roman Curia hierarchy, it's okay for Romanian Catholic priests to get married, but not for American priests unless they are part of the Romanian Catholic church.

It obviously means that you can't serve as pope if actually have sincere beliefs on this issue: you have to hold two opposing beliefs simeultaneously.

Attend a Catholic university, R66. Most of the lower level divinity studies feature Brothers as instructors.

On two different occasions brothers informed me that their status didn't carry the same baggage as that of a priest. I was oblivious at the time because I figured they were holy men.

Serious here. I am an attractive, discreet, RC guy in Boston. Mid-forties and open to a discreet relationship (sexual) with a priest in the Boston area. If you're interested, let me know here and we will figure out a way to be in touch. Only interested in priests who are attractive. Age is unimportant but you must be very sexual. Also open to attending any "secret rectory dinners" or parties and being shared. Safe. Discretion promised.

When I was in my early 20s, I got a job working on a college campus in my home town in Minnesota. I come from a very catholic background and so during my time there I became involved in the catholic chaplaincy on campus. The chaplaincy was headed by a very attractive and fresh from the seminary priest. I had only really just admitted to myself that I was gay and was still very closeted. I got to know the priest well and we struck up a friendship. One day I broke down and told him I was gay and his response was surprisingly positive for a young priest with pretty conservative views. Our friendship continued to develop and we spent a good deal of time with each other. Our conversations eventually turned towards sex as we were both effectively virgins. He did have a serious girlfriend before entering the seminary but they had never slept together. He admitted in the seminary he had gotten a hand job from a fellow student but that was the extent of it. One topic he began to focus on more and more was jerking off. He claimed he rarely did it and he would often have ‘wet dreams’ every few weeks. He was both appalled and intrigued when I told him I usually jerked a couple times a day. One evening he wanted to see the material I used to jerk and I pulled up a porn site and we began to watch. It wasn’t long before we had each other’s cocks in our hands. After we finished he stormed out in a hurry and our friendship effectively ended. Randomly a few months ago I got a facebook friend request from him. He’s still working at the campus but has gained a strong following on social media and in catholic circles around the country. We have been chatting but its been purely non-sexual chats. I think he is one of a small group of priests who take their vows super seriously.

When I was a young man, I wanted to be a priest. This didn't stop me from being a whore and a porn addict, but I did feel guilty about it. My best friend, who was basically a fuck buddy, and I lost contact because I started taking the celibacy stuff super seriously. I still miss him terribly(I think I've mentioned him in other posts).

I was going to go to the local seminary, St. Charles Borromeo, but I was dissuaded when a straight friend of mine who worked there as a janitor said that the sheets on the beds in many(not all) rooms where so sticky from cum that they often had to just replace the sheets rather than wash them, because they were so messed up. He said that the gay presence there was so strong that he thought of it as a gay resort.

Now, of course, this turned me on, but I was trying so hard to repress my sexuality that I decided I'd join the Franciscans who ran my high school. That same summer, a priest there was found dead because he hung himself. The story the other priests told was that he was performing a martial arts stunt(this priest taught judo, and had black belts in all of the martial arts), but it came out pretty quickly that he actually died from auto erotic asphyxiation, and that he was wearing leather and had gay porn mags spread all over his room. So, that was it for me and the orders of Friars Minor.

Later, I sought out an ultra conservative order. I will say that most of these men, to the best of my knowledge, kept their vows, but there was one priest who had another priest as his constant companion, and both pinged to high heaven(one had a lisp, was a hairdresser before he entered religion, and was always arranging the flowers around the Church).

They were very nice men, and weren't predators, but they shared the same living space and I have no doubt they were lovers. In fact, they are both now in another city, and by a stroke of luck, they both happened to be assigned to the same parish again. As church lady would say, "HOW CONVENIEEENT!".

So I came to the conclusion that the priesthood seemed to be more of a cover for men who didn't want to marry, and this was a convenient way to do so without being called names by their homophobic families. I gave up my pursuit of the religious life, but still tried to live up to the rigid rules of the Catholic Church. But I just couldn't. And it's only in the last few years that I've accepted my gayness, and am not ashamed of it. I still believe in God, and I think He made me this way. Who am I to argue with the Almighty?

Meanwhile, I'm looking into Anglo-Catholicism or something less rigid(I need liturgy; bare Protestantism and touchy feely services do nothing for me). Pope Francis gives me no hope at all, because he's just another poseur who wants to be loved and will say anything to do so. I'd rather have an honest guy who believes what he says, even if he's wrong about it.

[R91] 'the sheets on the beds in many(not all) rooms where so sticky from cum that they often had to just replace the sheets rather than wash them, because they were so messed up.'

When I was in my late teens our parish got a new priest he was 35(ish), tall, blonde, blue eyes, and a butt that looked like it was going to rip though those black pants - anyways - he was super nice and one day I ended up coming out to him. He gave me the old 'being gay isn't a sin but acting on it is.' I remember him very clearly saying that 'we all struggle with same-sex attraction' which now I view as his way of saying he was gay. He 'instructed' me that I should lead a chaste life. Easier sad then done for a horny 18 year old but for a few years I attempted to do just that. I think from about 18 to 20 I didn't engage in any sexual act and trust me every couple of weeks I'd wake up with very messy sheets.

I remember I had gone away to college and when I came home to visit I remember the priest and I went out for coffee and he asked me how I was doing with my 'vow' and I told him about my situation and his response was 'I sometimes have to peel the sheets off of me.' I think I went home and jerked after that LOL!

Funny and hot story, R92. Just as an addendum to my last long rant: the principal of the high school I attended(the same place where the priest died while trying to get off) was arrested for stealing funds from the school and using it to pay off boys he was fucking. One of them committed suicide. It's still so hard for me to believe that the Church that I always thought was so holy is really run by a mafia of vicious people who are into harming others and filling their own coffers with the hard earned money of the people they've duped.

In fact, I think it probably belongs in the conspiracy's that are true thread that the Catholic Church really is a criminal enterprise that shields sex criminals. Perhaps the 19th century Maria Monk wasn't as crazy as most people believed her to be.

[R93] The Catholic church is the master organization of sweeping things under the rug and then when something becomes public they play the 'we had no idea, it was only a small number of people etc etc.'

My home town has a pretty large seminary. A few years back a story broke about a number of students who were raped by their fellow seminarians over the course of the 1990s and into the 2000s. The reaction of officials at the seminary was always the same, the victim would be given some hush money and would quietly leave the seminary while the students who took part a rape were not punished. When the story broke the diocese denied any knowledge of the events and blamed everything solely on the bishop running the seminary during that time. No one is convinced that the church knew nothing since the pay off money was funneled in from the diocese.

The church is having a huge problem attracting men to the priesthood now and the young men who do enter are very conservative in their views which is going to pose a major problem for the church's survival in the western world. IF the Catholic Church is to survive, it needs to start changing its tune on: gays, women and celibacy. Pope Francis is a joke too. He knows how to make very positive and progressive soundbites but in reality he's just as conservative as JPII and the Star Wars Evil Emperor look alike Benedict XVI (by the way Benny was a big old Queen everyone knows it).

by Anonymousreply 9406/18/2015

I'll try to keep this brief:

In the early 2000s I attended St. Augustine’s Seminary in Toronto and it was an unusual experience to say the least. I was in my 20s at the time, one of the younger men there, and besides a few solo jerk-off sessions, I was a total virgin. I knew I was gay but at the time I preferred the term same sex attracted and refused to act on my disordered attractions. After entering the seminary, I very quickly discovered that the atmosphere was defiantly homoerotic and not just in your college frat boy kind of way, there was a sexualized layer of interaction between many of us seminarians. It wasn’t a rare thing to walk into the washroom and see jizz on the floor or walls, particularly in the morning. Since we lived in shared rooms, no one wanted to get caught jerking off there. I was also very surprised by the party atmosphere in the residence. Friday nights could get very wild with booze flowing freely and music blasting. At these parties many of the men would begin touching, and dancing suggestively even the guys who I would identify as being straight. The odd thing is the administration would never attempt to curtail this behavior we were told that loud parties and drinking were forbidden on campus yet when these parties happened there would be a strategy of looking the other way.

After a ‘lowering of my strong Catholic morals’ I began to take part in these parties. In particular I would go because one of the main party organizers was a very attractive man, whom I won’t name because he is now an active priest, was always trying to persuade me to attend. He was tall, olive skin, piercing blue eyes, scruff, a lean/muscular build and an amazing smile. He would often get on top of the pool table and start dancing with his shirt unbuttoned, holding a beer in hand with a cigarette dangling out of his mouth which I don’t recall him ever lighting. At one party after a couple of beers, he invited me up onto the pool table with him where we began to dance together. We were being encouraged by the guys watching us and the raunchier the moves the more encouragement we would get. At one point he leaned into me pressing himself into me and I could feel is hard dick pressing against my thigh, it was the first time I had ever felt another man before and I could tell by the look on his face he knew it and he got significant pleasure from it. I remember him putting his hand on my ass and putting his lips to my ear whispered ‘I’m going to fuck you tonight.’ He got his way in an empty common room that night in case you’re wondering ;)

After that incident I limped through another semester at the seminary but the devotion I had to the church was waning. The irony is being in the seminary began my journey to accepting being gay. It was when all the sex scandals broke and the church attempted to blame gay priests I just couldn’t take it and I left. I no longer attend church and lead a very happy secular life.

I know the seminary has changed a bit since I left. The church now deeply probes (no pun intended) candidates sexual backgrounds and orientations to try and weed out gay men. When I joined the only sexual question I was asked was had I been chaste for two years prior to my application.

[R95] Hot story!!!!

by Anonymousreply 9606/21/2015

There's a lot of homoeroticism in the seminaries. Most seek out large cities to play. When I moved to NYC to attend college, I met a guy at a bar who was really into Asians, but decided to give me a try. When we went to his place, there were crucifixes everywhere, they covered the walls! I got a little concerned. I asked him about it, to which he replied that he is a priest. We talked, he then told me his mother wanted him to be a priest so bad, she didn't care about him having sex. That was how he reconciled his behavior, and also said those in the diocese knew as well. He was pretty hot: blond, blue eyed, nice hairy chest, in shape, pretty creative in bed.

Another guy I knew was renting a place from a very religious Italian woman. She used to have her priest over all the time. One day, the priest was there when he came home. The landlady introduced the two, stepped away, and the two exchanged numbers. They had a hard time hooking up because he wasn't Catholic, and the landlady might ask questions. The priest couldn't host, because all the priests at the rectory were gay, and those with seniority got to have first dibs on having their boyfriends spend the night.

I'm from a small town, and all the priests in the area are gay, the only ones who bought the gay porn mags. The only gay seminary student I know who didn't have sex while studying was someone who wasn't out to himself yet, now looks back with regret, as he was the new student and everyone was hitting on him.

R95 When I went to the University of Toronto back in 2001 to 2005, we used to refer to St. Augustine’s as the Semenary.

I grew up catholic and our parish church was a large one so we'd have a revolving door of priests coming (no pun intended) and going. Looking back I would say looking back two of them were definitely flamers. The most interesting priest we ever had though was a raging alcoholic. I remember him slurring through his homilies sometimes.

I've never been involved with a catholic priest but I did date an anglican priest for a number of years. He was actually the kinkiest lover I've ever had LOL.

I wonder what the seminaries are like today? Men entering the priesthood is a major decline so I can't see a seminary having large numbers of students anymore. I would suspect those entering are largely straight whereas a large number of priests over the age of 40 are gay or closeted.

by Anonymousreply 9906/22/2015

R99 For the last decade church policy is to basically deny entry into the seminary any man who admits to having sex with or very strong sexual attractions to men. When you apply to enter the seminary now they supposedly ask you very detailed questions about your sexual history (if any) in order to calculate if they feel you can commit to celibacy.

Homosexuality within the church and the church's attitude towards it is a ticking time bomb. If the church is to survive in the western world it's going to have to start getting more progressive problem is those entering the priesthood tend to be more and more conservative. It's a recipe for disaster.

One another anecdote: I remember going to confession after a really wild sex session, and was expecting to get really scolded by the priest. His spiritual comfort to me was "Thank God for your sexual energy!". Surprised he didn't ask for my phone number.

The unwritten rule for Priests - Whatever you do, don't do it in your own diocese."

I knew a Newark priest who spent every Saturday night in New York's St. Mark's Baths.

A friend of mine is a gay priest. He got ratted-out to the Bishop, and has been on double secret probation ever since. Probably permanently. He's a nice guy, but he's very human, with all the flaws that entails. He is smoking hot, though I think he might be just over 40 now. If you get defrocked, they leave you with nothing for decades of service. No pension, no 401k, nothing. Literally nothing as a financial cushion for giving the best years of your life.

So... I'm talking to this guy and he tells me that he recently met this "young, sexy priest" at the Palm Springs White Party... He wanted a threesome with him and his boyfriend, but the boyfriend was weirded out... He then proceeds to show me a pic and whoa indeed... Guy in early 30s, very nicely formed pecs and abs, very tan in Unico underwear... Quite a shock...

So, armed with the very basic information I had been given, I sleuthed around and found the guy, googled his name and found pics of the same guy in clerics and Roman collar...

I had aspired to the priesthood at one point in my life myself, and I am about his same age, so I made some inquiries in circles who he and I might have in common and might know more... What is a Catholic to do? I asked a good friend of mine, young bisexual guy who is currently at the local diocesan seminary (but who is celibate) and he point blank told me there would be no point in outing the guy because he most likely is banging his Bishop and we would look like fools if we report his ass...

So, the hypocrisy must continue...

I wish I could show you all his pic in speedos at White Party side by side to his pic in Roman collar and see your faces all drop, but this kid has really done nothing evil to me (other than the evil of hypocrisy on gays as a whole) and I could RUIN his life (his Bishop might not give a fuck, but his parishioners might turn up their nose if they found out what good sweet young Father Pecs does in his free time).

Diocese of Charleston... That's all I will say...

I am sorry to hear that anyone would consider outing a priest under any circumstances. Let your priest be a fully human, human being. He is NOT setting church policy and has as much trouble conforming to it as you do. Would you want someone calling your boss and telling him what you've been doing? Or your parents, or spouse? Mind your own business. The topic is repugnant.

Miss Nancy Drew at R106, be a sweetheart and give us the priest's initials and race.

R107 sees no duplicity in being a priest and an active gay man...

Let them be "fully human", he cries out...(Incidentally, that sounds a lot like what the hierarchy said in the sexual abuse crisis... Maybe R107 is a bishop lol)

My employer does not make statements that brand gays as "intrinsically disordered"...

If my employers did, I would be faced with a choice of quitting or standing behind them... If I stood behind them, then I would have to modify my behavior... Going to White Party is having your cake and eating too...

So, how about Father Pecs presents his Indult of Laicization next time he's booking his flight to the next circuit party...

R108... Giving his initials would be fully outing his ass... I have decided not to, but not for the reasons R107 expounds, who is either (a) not a Catholic, or (b) a poorly trained Catholic who has no understanding of what the sacrament of Holy Orders means, and equates it to a mere bond of employment to the Church... In either case, I'd be happy to educate him...

I used to hook up with a guy in Boston. The apartment above him was owned by a priest who, unbeknownst to his order, would use the place as a place to bring home tricks and where he'd host meth orgies. The guy was in his 50s at least but his place was always hopping.

I think the priesthood is just a job for most guys.

I have been seriously considering putting a black blotch over the face in his two pics: (1) the pic of the pecs and abs (which kinda would make Kellan Lutz eat his heart out), and (2) the pic in clerics/ Roman collar... I am gauging how likely it is for him to be outed that way, because I DON'T want him outed by my hand... Just for shits and giggles...
