I'm beginning to see a trend of "Catholicism-without-priests" surfacing around here. Certainly, all this crisis has made us wary of some clergy. The solution, though, is to seek traditional clergy, not to throw them all out as dispensers of sacraments and nothing more. Internet fora, catholic magazines, even some good catholic company are not and should not be a replacement of priests and of their fatherly guidance.

No, I am not an advocate of getting rid of priests. But their role includes celibacy and I do beleive that the burden of that vow places a responsibility to avoid that subject with priests. We have to respect their special vocation.  This includes Confession, where we can indicate a sexual sin without describing it. I am not being suspicious of priests, just considerate.

I can't see anyone better suited to help the poster in question regarding her sexual temptations (even if they're only a dream) than her priest. They are our spiritual fathers, vehicles of Divine mercy, equipped with the millennial experience and authority of the Church. Who is there any better to seek counsel from? She doesn't need to dwell into specifics in order to confide to him her problems and worries, neither she has to go into detail with anyone else since anyone can is subject to temptation and sin. Modesty should be our way of conduct in every action with everyone.
