An e-retailer has seen its range of sex toys for married Roman Catholic couples "who love God" flying off the shelves like proverbial hot cakes.
Online business Alkowa Malzenska (Marital Alcove) offers a dizzying array of erotic paraphernalia, taking in massage gels, raunchy underwear and dice that suggest where partners should caress or kiss each other.
"We came to the conclusion that marriage is the best terrain for developing sexuality," Izabela Kwiatkowska, who co-owns the company with her husband, in told the TVP public television network.
For example, a couple's 'rhythm method' can be enhanced by special ovulation test packs.
There are also a series of books on the, “Theology of the body – blessed by John Paul II”.
Kwiatkowska revealed that the erotic dice were the hottest sellers at the moment.
But the promotion of eroticism together with faith is not new in Poland.
Krakow cleric Father Ksawery Knotz has published two books about sex for Roman Catholics.
Sex as you don't know it (Seks jakiego nie znacie) and Sex is divine, or a Catholic's erotica (Seks jest Boski, czyli Erotyka Katolika), have both proved popular sellers.
According to the Franciscan friar, sex should be "saucy, surprising and fantasy-packed." (nh/pg)
