Bless Me Father for I Have Sinned

Bless Me Father for I Have Sinned

When worshipers in a northern Italian church heard shrieks of “Oh, God” and “Thank you, Jesus,” coming from the confessional box during morning mass, they discovered they weren’t coming from a repentant sinner.

The screams of ecstasy were actually coming from a couple having a sexual escapade inside the box. The couple—both in their early 30s—were detained by police and given a caution for “obscene acts in public and disturbing a religious function.”

They repented to a local bishop who forgave them and ordered a “mass of reparation” to restore the sacred vibes of the church. The bishop was likely sympathetic to the couple’s lack of options for finding privacy. In Italy, where rent is high and job rates can run low, its not uncommon for singles to live at home well into their 30s.

A church confessional box probably tops the list of the all time craziest places to have sex. Have you had any experiences that would come close? If so, any sex tips for making love in small places? [MSNBC]

LOL! I've been there too. We were in a park though, in the back seat of his car. We were let off with a warning too. Actually the cop that caught us asked if we were both of legal age of consent. We still laugh at that to this day. But yeah, it's not fun being caught.

I had a public whoopie experience gone wrong. Let's just say it was on a beach, and involved a beach patrolman. It was not fun being caught, but we were let go with a warning. As for tips, all I'll say is, don't get caught!

I can completely sympathize with this couple. I myself have been caught in the act in a very embarassing and similar way. I happened to be fooling around with the son of a Catholic school principle in his school during a ceremony for the honor students. We were caught by the vice principle getting frisky in the schools chaple. There was plenty of room, so no tips on small places, however when vp walked in the whole room suddenly felt very small. Luckily for us Mr. VP didnt say a word of it to anyone. He gave us a stern lecture about pre marital sex and the church and what not. I couldnt look the man in the eyes after the episode and the relationship ended shortly there after.
