A few days ago a member of our community responded to a post that I had written on October 31, 2018. I thought it was a wonderful question/comment – and one that I felt really needed to be addressed. It was a comment that I have heard before and one that I really wanted to bring to the forefront of my posts as I felt it was important. Below is the comment – and my response…
1st of all, let me say welcome to The Temple of Priapus website! I am so glad that you found us and I am very excited to have you be a part of this community! It has taken me a few days to respond to this, simply because I wanted to be thoughtful as to how I did respond. This is an area that I believe must be dealt with in a caring way.
As you know, https://www.templepriapus.com is open to anyone who would like to register with us. Male, Female, Young (legal age), Old – and everyone in-between. We don’t prohibit anyone from registering – and we don’t ban anyone unless we see bullying or hate-speech manifest itself.
We started this website on our own probably about 6 months ago with no funding and little knowledge of web-building – you will see that there are few “bells and whistles” to this site, but we did our best.
Our focus is on Phallic worship, as you know. And as you search through the site you will see that our emphasis is on Men with Men and creating that bond in Brotherhood. Our writings and our posts all deal with the relationship between men – including the tastes and smells, the masculinity and strength, the father and the son, the alpha and the beta. We believe there is no sin or shame in consensual and legal sexual activity between men – and we actually believe it is something that we ought to do and can do with pleasure and pride. The basis for most, if not all, of our rituals, include a bonding through sexual activity.
For many men, this is a new and different experience. Many come in with the baggage of religious suppression, guilt, walls of defense and many other triggers of doubt and fear. We also enter into a ritual with the knowledge that men have sexual preferences. Size, shape, age, looks, etc all play into the success of having an effective outcome in the ritual that takes place. For many men, this is the breaking point as to whether or not they come back, or want to remain involved in the Temple.
What you are asking is a very obvious and valid question – and would be or could be the next possible step in who we are and what defines us as members of the Temple. I would love to encourage you and ask you to please go out and do what we have done! Start a Temple that would address these areas of worship that you would like to see happen! Become a part of this movement and create a safe place for those that identify as cross-dressers, transgender, transvestite or sissy worshippers! It would be GREAT if we had a place to refer men to that have these passions and desires! It would be great to work with you to build up your community! If becoming a Priest yourself is something that you desire to do, we can work with you to make that happen. You too can start a website much like ours! This is all doable – but you must be willing to do it!
One individual Temple cannot be all things to all individuals.
There are Temples for straight men and women as well – and there are websites that cater to those individuals.
LET US ALL CELEBRATE COCK and THE RICHNESS OF KNOWING THAT HE IS OUR LORD AND CREATOR!!!
Please let me know if and how I can help,
Thank you for your thoughtful words, Father Marc. I would also like to see our welcoming and inclusive “community of men” framed so that it explicitly welcomes the transgender, transvestite, crossdresser and sissy worshippers of Cock who may not choose to identify fully as “men”. Their passion and devotion to Priapus should not be questioned and they should feel welcome and safe in our community.
I do not question the edicts of the Church, however, some women in my life have supported, encouraged, shared and enjoyed watching my worship and passion for Cock! I consider them my sisters in Cock.
