Worshippers of the orgasm have been left disappointed after their God was not officially recognized.
Appeal judges in Sweden have banned the Church of the Madonna of the Orgasm from being given the same legal status as other faiths.
Self-appointed cardinal Carlos Bebeacua believes man should worship the orgasm as a symbol of a higher being.
“The orgasm is the ultimate feeling of lust,” the Sun quoted him as saying.
“It shouldn't be limited to ejaculation. You can reach it through art or by looking at a landscape and thinking 'wow',” he said.
But the country's Supreme Administrative Court rejected his plea for official recognition.
Judges feared the church's use of the word 'Madonna' in its name would “cause offence not only in the broad groups of the population that have Christian roots, but also in society as a whole” because it is generally understood to refer to the Virgin Mary.
