Vatican: Young men wanted to dress in fetish costumes and work in an all-male environment

January 10, 2014

Is there a problem with that?

For almost 500 years, young men from all over Switzerland have made the trek to Rome to guard the pope as Swiss guards.

Now a former member of the elite division has revealed that, besides protecting the pontiff, he spent his two years in the Vatican rebuffing unwanted sexual advances from priests, bishops and even a high-ranking cardinal.

The unnamed guard told a Swiss newspaper that he was the subject of 20 “unambiguous sexual requests”.
