Poland: A Franciscan monk publishes a Catholic Kama Sutra.

In 2009, Father Ksawery Knotzer (44), Franciscan priest at the monastery of Friars Minor Capuchin in Stalowa Wola, in eastern Poland published a guide on sexuality entitled "Sex, as you might think not: for couples married love God. "
         In this true Catholic Kama Sutra, he tells in detail how married couples can spice up their sex life: "Any act, a caress or a sexual position, which seeks the pleasure is allowed and recommended by God. (...) Sex in the Marriage should not be boring, but naughty, surprising and full of fantasy. "
         Some Poles question the possibility that a person, having taken a vow of chastity and living in a monastery, could write such a book.
For nearly a decade, the Catholic priest met no less than 3,000 couples and issued advice on sexuality.
By his own admission, Ksawery Knotzer, now nicknamed "Priest of Kama Sutra" recognizes that its approach "is somewhat sensational."
         Despite the iconoclasm of the book, it remains in line with the Vatican on contraception: it discourages the use of condoms and contraceptives, for him, "lead the couple married outside the Catholic culture and plunges in a totally different lifestyle. "
The book has also been endorsed by the Polish church and seems, for now, cause no controversy among conservatives and believers of the homeland of Pope John Paul II (1905-2005).
The first 5,000 copies sold in its first year. His publisher does not stop there: he provides a new edition and is now planning to have it translated in English, Italian and Slovak.
