A priest is under investigation after being accused of using a church for sex parties, according to police in Italy.
Padua police said that 48-year-old Andrea Contin, who is the priest at the San Lazzaro church, is accused of pimping out as many as 15 women and organizing sex parties.
After three women who attend the San Lazzaro church, filed complaint with police, officers raided the premises and seized sex toys and homemade sex videos.
The videos showed sex parties that were being held on the church premises. Some of the videos were concealed in covers, which had labels of popes.
Contin is accused of advertising prostitutes on wife swapping websites. Several prostitutes told police that the priest took them to a swingers resort in France.
Complaint were made to the bishop, but no action was taken, claiming that an investigation was not yet completed.
