"Put on some music, swallow a Viagra, and adelante!"
That's the headline in Europe today following reports that a papal aide used an intermediary in an elite Vatican choir to solicit young male choristers and seminarians for prostitution.
n 72 pages of transcribed wiretaps, Ehiem tells Balducci about one possible candidate: "Angelo ... I'll say no more. Two meters (6-foot-7), 97 kilos (250 lbs.), 33 years-old and completely active (top)."
In later calls, Ehiem offered fewer details: "I have a situation in Naples."
"I have a Cuban situation."
"I have a German who just arrived from Germany."
"I have two black guys."
"I have the soccer player."
"I have the dancer from RAI," the Italian TV network.
Some of the young men were seminarians or attended ecclesiastical colleges in Rome. On one occasion, Balducci is heard saying, "He, when does he have to return to the seminary?"
