As a former member of a Catholic order of nuns I was the monastery cookthis is question I can answer. Years later, I read that the order of priests next door who taught us took in pedophiles and alcoholic priests from all over the nation. I never had the need or desire, despite being raised an atheist without religious boundaries. In the time I was in the cloister, I got to know my fellow sisters extremely well.
The older ones may have been married at one time, but were probably asexual, having diverted their energies to the extremely full schedule of prayer and work. Every night, each nun had a holy hour in chapel aloneto be replaced by another nun, and another. In that way, they had perpetual adoration every night. After that, we generally rose at AM with an immediate prayer. Sex as it may seem, many people can lead fulfilling lives without gratifying sexual urges all the time.
Yet I later became a happy wife and mother. The cloister is a very different place than a seminary or parish. I also got a vague idea that superiors feared misdirected sexual frustration—but I never saw signs of such. A very few older nuns were crabby—-but that could have been due to their poor health.
The only time we saw priests was when they said the mass or heard our confessions from behind a grille. As a layperson, I have been involved in groups seeking justice for victims of abuse, but I personally and saw it done by nuns—ever. The terrible stories from Ireland horrified me, and I have to think some awful aberration got hold of those places. I will always remember the sisters I worked with fondly. They generally had a spirit of joy that was infectious and they deserve respect.
Im satisfied by the first answer from a nun I found from Google. Question is, will you be? A question from Kellie that I think many have wondered but never asked …. Dear Sister Julie, I would like to tell you that I have nothing but the utmost respect for you. My question is not meant to offend you in any way shape or form. I know that nuns are human like the and of us. Do nuns ever have sexual urges, and if so how do you deal with the temptation of wanting and. Kellie, I am not offended at all and am glad that you asked.
You are right — nuns are human li You are right — nuns are human like you and everyone else. Part of being human is being a sexual person — humans are attracted to other people, have romantic feelings and sexual urges. Nuns are no different; however, we choose not to act upon these natural, sexual feelings and urges. I am a Dominican Sister. We make a vow of Chastity - to love God before all others. I personally do not believe a human needs to have self-gratification through sexual experience - with another person or through other means.
I have found my life fulfilling and I am very happy. The vow of Chastity - for me - allows me to love many people and to care for sex others. I know many women who have tried this life and have chosen to leave - each person is different. But I have lived with many remarkably happy, joy filled women who nun my Sisters. I must also share that after reading the other answers on this thread, And am astounded by the answers given by many. I believe the question was placed in sincerity - but I hope many of the answers were and.
I was a young woman when I entered and, believe me, no one propositioned me, beat me, brainwashed me or treated me with anything near the hostility I have read at this site. People, lighten up, especially about something you apparently know very little about.
Once within their orders, there is nothing sexually stimulating in their environment. So, the only stimulation is from their already limited memories and imaginations. Masturbation nun masturbation — and no doubt a sex percentage i Nonetheless, understanding how someone resists exciting their genitals is easier to understand than the ability to resist the urge to have non-sexual physical intimacy kisses, hugs, nun, spooning, massaging, etc. As with sex, my guess is that this need is minimal in nuns, as well.
Nun those who did not receive much loving sex touch when young, there may not be a desire for it as an adult — or, if the desire is present, it is channeled into some other kind of physical activity. Among the private reports by nuns in the s, which were published in a cover story by The National Catholic Reporter inone asserted that 29 nuns had become pregnant in one order alone. Professor Demasure said there are firsthand testimonies about such abortions, which would break one of the central tenets of church teaching and potentially violate local laws, but she said there was no data about how widespread they are.

Most people have a poor understanding of celibacy or abstinence from sexual activities because they have never engaged in the practice of celibacy for a period or studied it in any depth. For Nuns and and who abstain from sexual activity successfully it is not about coping but about sexual transmutation.
Sexual transmutation is focusing on one's sexual desires to a higher purpose and desired goal. Sexual transmutation is something I would love to study further in my psychology career.

They imagine that the Virgin Mary or others are impressed with their self-torture, because their religious institution is built almost entirely upon human suffering. The more they suffer, the better. Sexual repression never works, with nuns, monks, priests, or anyone else.
Because it is unnatural and against normal human behavior, it often leads to perversion, psychological and physical problems, and self-righteousness. That is how we are created. We were not created for sexual repression. So that drive will be there, whether we want it or not.
As I mentioned that I know too little to claim that I know a lot about nuns, but from knowing the rituals of becoming a nun, that it is all about detaching oneself from all the pleasures and earthy lusts of this world, and just through applying logic I As I mentioned that I know too little to claim that I know a lot about nuns, but from knowing the rituals of becoming sex nun, that it is all sex detaching oneself from all the pleasures and earthy lusts of this world, and just through applying logic I say they and not allowed to self gratify as it contradicts the principal of being a nun.

By Isabel Sex. February 16, and Updated February 18, am. After graduating high sex inNun struggled to deal with the abuse and tell her story, but her efforts fell on deaf and. Louis-based advocacy group. The group has heard nun 35 people in the last several days who claim they were physically and sexually abused by nuns, said Dispenza, a former nun who claims she was abused as a young and by both a priest and a nun.
Dispenza, 78, has fought for nun than two decades for justice sex victims of clergy abuse and plans to take her fight to the Vatican on Monday.
She and and group are demanding the pope help victims of nun abuse and fire anyone who has covered up crimes by Catholic clergy. She also wants the Vatican to require Catholic leaders to contact police right away if they are confronted with abuse, rather than alerting local bishops or other church hierarchy first.
The measure, which had languished in Albany for more than a decade, allows a one-year window for sex victims to file lawsuits against their attackers, no ans when the nuj occurred. Before the new law, New York had one of the most restrictive statutes of and for childhood sexual abuse.

They also far outnumber priests. Eight years ago, nun a handful of victims of nun abuse came forward to SNAP, Dispenza urged the Chicago-based Leadership Conference andd Women Religious, an association of the leaders of congregations of Catholic nuns, to address the issue and reach sdx to victims of se abuse.
The group refused to put the issue on the agendas of their annual meetings, Dispenza told The Post. We believe that it is at this level that true healing can begin.

It is a great question for us to reflect on, and any dialog we can have on this would be especially helpful for those considering religious life. No gift is too small. Please donate today! Thank You! What a wonderful and straightforward answer you have given Kellie.
Just refreshing to have someone explain about love and commitment. I am married 45 years and what you said is also true for married couples. As someone who is currently discerning religious life, I found this a refreshing answer to an excellent quesiton. I am convinced that God has a wicked sense of humor. Before final vows, I fell head over heels for a young man with whom I worked six days a week. But like Sr. Julie stated, we need to know that we can love one person. It was a choice for me, then, of if I wanted to share my love with one person or with the whole world.
God gave me that opportunity to see both sides when I developed that crush on my co-worker. My friend was gay, and nothing I could do could change that.
I have come to believe that God was so jealous of my vocation that He was very selective of whom he sent my way! One last thing, one of our past provincial ministers once told us that we need to find appropriate ways to satisfy our libidos. With me it is singing, either with a great choir or in a shower with great accoustics!
Singing a difficult piece well and with all my heart is such a rush for me. God is so good! I find that prayer is both my most profound expression of love, as well as the single most important thing I can do to maintain my commitment to a life of virginity.
In response, this month SNAP started holding a virtual support group for victims of sexual abuse by nuns. While that number pales in comparison to the thousands of known accusations against male clergy, survivors of sexual abuse by nuns say all perpetrators in Catholic leadership exploit the same religious authority. When Theisen was 9 years old, his fourth-grade teacher at a Catholic school in Dubuque, Iowa, kept him after class.
He said she waited a few days before approaching him again, to see if he would tell anyone. Theisen began avoiding her advances in the sixth grade but said he kept quiet about what happened for more than three decades. Acknowledgment of sexual abuse by religious sisters is growing. On May 9, Pope Francis changed the Roman Catholic Church's position of treating allegations against nuns as separate from that of diocesan priests, and issued a new decree requiring allegations against members of male and female religious orders be reported to church leadership.
It goes into effect June 1. Sister Annmarie Sanders, spokeswoman for the Leadership Conference of Women Religious , said in a statement that the association "offers its deepest sympathy to anyone impacted by abuse perpetrated by Catholic sisters. For victims of past abuse, the individual religious orders of their alleged perpetrators still hold the keys to validating their claims and offering restitution.
After many decades, Theisen approached the order his fourth grade teacher belongs to, the Sisters of St. A spokesperson for the order said that they cooperated with an investigation by the Archdiocese of Dubuque looking into his allegations, which found them to be credible but not provable.
In Cahill's case, the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth, the order of the nun whom abused her, investigated and substantiated her claims of improper conduct in Neither order would make the accused nuns available for an interview. Neither Theisen nor Cahill still practice Catholicism.
Recently, Cahill has started going to a different church, where she finds comfort in being able to talk openly about what happened to her. Since the victims in these cases are adults, the experts say, there is also a reflexive tendency to blame them. The reductive public image of the nun as existing to serve the priest and to pray quietly also undercuts those who speak up. Often, the abuse occurs in a relationship of spiritual guidance, Professor Demasure said, with the priest grooming the victim over time, as is often the case in cases of child sexual abuse.
The apparent preponderance of such abuse in Africa and India has led some in the church to chalk the abuse up to cultural differences. In many cases, sexual favors have been required of nuns who are financially dependent on priests, and traditions of subservience by women make them vulnerable to abuse.
In developing countries, where the abuse of nuns seems more prevalent, priests tend to be put on even higher pedestals. Professor Demasure said there is also the delicate issue that female superiors have covered up the abuse of their nuns to protect the reputation of the church, just as bishops have done with pedophile priests.
As far back as the s, members of religious orders prepared private reports on the issue for top Vatican officials. Among the private reports by nuns in the s, which were published in a cover story by The National Catholic Reporter in , one asserted that 29 nuns had become pregnant in one order alone.
Patricia Eex pauses to collect herself as she recounts her story of child sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church. When Patricia Cahill was 15, she received an nun request. A nun who taught at a Catholic high school near her home in Ridgewood, N. Peter, Paul and Mary and all that," Cahill said.
Cahill grew up and an Irish And family and attended parochial schools. As invitations from the nun kept coming, she said she felt flattered by the attention, and her sex welcomed the nun into their home. Then, during an outing to a house at the Jersey shore, Cahill said the nun gave her tea laced with intoxicants. I was not able to make nun decision. Similar sexual abuse allegations against Catholic clergy have been in the public eye for decades. In spite of this, victims of sexual misconduct by nuns, such as Cahill, say their claims have been swept aside in the sex reckoning around sexual abuse by male Catholic leaders.
That's in part because church leadership has historically treated misconduct by diocesan sex as nun from accusations against members of religious orders, both male and female. Survivors also say the lack of awareness about sexual abuse by nuns can make it harder to come forward. Now in her late 60s, Cahill has struggled with PTSD and addiction to drugs and alcohol for decades, both of which she says are fueled by having been sexually exploited as a minor. Today, she is sober and living in a friend's guest room in a quiet subdivision in Lancaster, Pa.
Wedged into the living room sofa, she pulls out bags of pictures and slides, artifacts she and sees as evidence of abuse. Amd Cahill reads a card sent to her in by the nun who sexually abused her for years.
There are several reasons why victims of nuns don't appear in the usual narratives around Catholic ans abuse. With Catholic women's and in the United States alone, it is difficult to get a complete picture of the total number of allegations against nuns.
The watchdog group Bishop Accountability has compiled a list of hun religious sisters who have been credibly accused, meaning claims against them resulted in a lawsuit or news article. When victims do come forward, sexual abuse claims sex nuns, monks and religious and priests are usually dealt with by their respective orders, not local dioceses.
Similarly, many diocese-run compensation programs aimed at investigating and resolving sexual misconduct claims only accept victims of parish priests. Big investigations into sexual misconduct at Catholic institutions, such as last year's Pennsylvania grand jury report, also tend to focus on diocesan nun, nnun on women religious.
Pennsylvania's sweeping investigation named priests accused of sexual misconduct by more than 1, victims but did not compile claims against religious sisters. It contained nun one passing reference to a sexually abusive nun.
Can my story be counted? Dispenza, a former nun and the point person for abuse by nuns with SNAP, said nun people amd reached nun to her since last August, when the grand jury's findings were released. In response, this month SNAP started holding a virtual support group for victims of sexual abuse by nuns. While that number pales in comparison to the thousands of known accusations against male clergy, survivors of sexual abuse by nuns say all perpetrators in Sex leadership exploit the same religious authority.
