It's amazing that priest are suspected of having antisocail sex lives. Part of the problem is the medieval decision of the Roman Catholic Church to forbid priests to marry.

"Celibacy" is actually the appearance of not having sex. A married man is expected to have sex; the sex life of an unmarried man is not visible.

"Shastity" is a situation of a man only having sex inside of marriage.

Catholic priests are forbidden to be "chaste," so they have to be "celibate," which means that their sex life must be invisible. That is a situation that draws perverts like a magnet and makes life hard for the majority of priests who are good, moral fellows trying to deal with a church that has impossible expectations of its clergy.
