(Newser) – When you think "sex advice," chances are you don't think "celibate Catholic priest" in the same nanosecond. Meet Father Ksawery Knotz, the church's answer to Dan Savage—sort of. Author of tomes like Sex Is Divine, the Polish priest is making waves by taking a decidedly modern approach on the finer points of human sexuality, in a way, trying to marry it with God. "It seems to people that God and sex have nothing to do with each other," Knotz tells GlobalPost.

Knotz calls his website a "good way to communicate with people," and bluntly takes on everything from oral sex (not a sin) to orgasm (he wants men to make sure women partake, too). The advice he dispenses he's learned in theory, though, not practice. But blunt though he may be, Knotz falls in line with the church's thinking: that human sexuality is wonderful, but to be celebrated by a married man and woman sans birth control. Period.
