Were Two Italian Guys Blackmailing Gay Priests Or Charging Them For Nookie?

Thirty-year-old Italian courier Giuseppe Trementino says that a priest who he delivered a package to seduced him and that after they traded numbers, the priest began to give him money “of his own free will.” The priest later contacted police. But by then, Trementino had already hooked up with another gay priest who gave him 300 Euros to buy a rail pass and 3 days worth of condoms, lube, booze and weed for a wild weekend together. Soon after, Trementino claims that hundreds of gay priests began contacting him for sex and that he started charging them. But is Trementino a Catholic casanova or a gay-on-gay blackmailer?

Trementino and his 35-year-old roommate Diego Maria Caoggiano say that they began charging priests up to 10,000 Euros for webcam and physical encounters, mostly to filter out the priests’ multitude of “disgusting,” “absurd,” and “asphixiating” requests. But police discovered that that Caoggiano and Trementino had computers with over 100 priests’ contact details, cell phone numbers, incriminating Facebook messages, and digital recordings of their sex sessions.

The Isernia town prosecutors who spearheaded the judicial probe (too easy) said “There are ‘a multitude of priests’ in Italy who are keen for sexual contact via the Internet.” Dang! If that’s true, someone in Isernia needs to set-up and start making some mad Euros stat!

    You just gotta love this stuff, haven’t you?

    I see Queerty is still stealing copyrighted images to tart up its tabloid blog. This story has nothing to do with Antonio Federici’s ice cream campaign that the Vatican found offensive back in 2010. Consequently Fair Use does not apply. Stealing is bad karma. Play nice.

    @Auntie Dogma: Yeah, that’s one area where the new Queerty is no improvement over the old one. Best thing to do is contact the copyright holder and let them know. Alternatively, Queerty could just go to Wikimedia Commons, a huge repository of images under Creative Commons licenses, and just provide attribution.

    Who cares what the Vatican finds offensive?
    The Vatican and its pus-filled loathesome occupants are offensive.

    A gay Catholic is a unprincipled hypocrite, but a gay priest is a vile kapo.

    Even a blackmailer looks decent by comparison.

    These priests are having sex with adult men! This is a miracle!! Leave the children alone please! I actually want to pat each of those black robed gentlemen on the back. I’ll take a hypocritical closet case over a sick pedophile any day of the week! God bless them, everyone!

    @Anna : Good point! (as an aside, I doubt many priests, hetero or gay, remain celibate, despite their ‘vows’)

    @Riker : Wikimedia Commons IS the way to go, yes! More than one blogger that I know has learnt that the hard way.
