(Newser) – A celibate monk in Poland has a surprise hit on his hands—a sex guide for married couples that's being labeled a Catholic Kama Sutra, the BBC reports. Poles quickly snapped up the first run of Father Ksawery Knotz' book, which argues that religious couples' sex life should be "saucy, surprising, and fantasy-packed." In fact, it's God's will, he writes in Sex As You Don't Know It: For Married Couples Who Love God.

"Every act—a type of caress, a sexual position—with the goal of arousal is permitted and pleases God. During sexual intercourse, married couples can show their love in every way, can offer one another the most sought-after caresses."
