... the problem must be heterosexual priests.

How did ascetic traditions become so powerful and popular in Christianity? What was their attraction in the first place? Was it that sex in pagan Rome was such a weapon of the ruling class and then it snowballed from there?

Hint: I'm not looking for a theological explanation. I'm trying to understand why free people would choose to confine their sexuality so narrowly.
