Priest 'Educated' Two on Masturbation

Two men are claiming they were were molested as teens by the former priest Rev. Donald McGuire, who convinced them they were “addicted” to masturbation and needed to be “educated” on how to stop. The two men are testifying in a federal jury trial.

The “education” consisted of looking at magazines, such as Playboy and Playgirl, and watching x-rated videos. One alleged victim said in court yesterday that McGuire had him masturbate just short of climax. Both alleged victims said that McGuire would ask them of their sexual activities during confession.

One of the victims said he felt guilty about masturbating twice a week when he was 13. McQuire told him that if he didn’t “master” this, he would “go to hell.”

Both alleged victims said McGuire had them give him massages that included rubbing his genitals. Dominick alleged that McGuire put oil on the boy's penis, examined it with a magnifying glass, and performed oral sex on him.

The alleged abuse took place between 1999 and 2003.

The trial continues next week. [S-T]
