Bedtime Stories from a Polish Priest.

I've searched this week's Telegraphs for something remotely amusing or ridiculous - just for a change. Desperately looking for some blessed relief from the catalogues of exposure about the excesses of our elected representatives. And 'Blessed' is the word because all I can find is the report on page 19 of today's edition about a new book written by Father Ksawery Knotz, a celibate Polish priest. The book is titled 'Sex As You Don't Know It: For Married Couples Who Love God'. Its described as advising couples to explore a 'saucy and fantasy-packed' love life.

Father Knotz has written the 'Catholic Kama Sutra'. Could it be an attempt to draw attention away from Dan Brown's new book which is due out in September. Anyway he tells us that "Every act - a type of caress, a sexual position with the goal of arousal is permitted and pleases God". He goes on to say that "During sexual intercourse, couples can show their love in every way, and offer one another the most sought after caresses". And then he goes into the explicit detail. We are not told whether this unique approach has increased the size of his congregations

Father Knotz tells us that he compares sex with a football match. "There are rules, for example you can't kick the ball out". Ouch. I suppose he favours a high scoring style of play. Even though he has no personal experience to call on, he tells us that he's learnt all his tricks from listening to the stories that couples have related to him. Well, that's it. I suppose its back to wall-to-wall scandal and dodgy receipts tomorrow. Will it never end?
