Wow, that sure brings all my Mormon missionary fantasies to the surface.

Posted by Rye | August 29, 2007 9:54 AM

LOL!! Mormon Missionaries! They were up by my place a few weeks ago in Wedgewood. Both were kinda cute when they approached me to tell me about Jesus Christ. (on the freakin' sidewalk no less) I told them, let's come to my place and talk about that bulge in your pants mission boy.

They want to convert me then I am going to make them gay!

So what's the average gay guy opinion of the Mormon male uniform? Does it possess any fetish factor, ala the catholic schoolgirl uniform?

Posted by JC | August 29, 2007 10:00 AM

@JC, Screw the uniform. It is just covering up the good stuff!!!

Posted by Just Me | August 29, 2007 10:02 AM

Batshit crazy? Sure...but no more so than most every other religion. :-)

It's a sign! I just watched "Latter Days" last night, and saw this post this morning... obviously I should go find myself a cute mormon boy to corrupt.

There's no way that the Mormon church would endorse that calendar or commercial. Plus they have enough money to do better than that, AND missionaries are 19-21 and those dudes are older than that. Those folks are selling wolf tickets.

Posted by Carollani | August 29, 2007 10:07 AM


Yeah, the Mormon underpants.

Posted by keshmeshi | August 29, 2007 10:20 AM

And did they pay Annie Lennox to use her music? would she have said yes?

Posted by Beckyh | August 29, 2007 10:24 AM

When I clicked on "comments" I was sure SOMEBODY would have made at least one snarky joke about Gay Mormons and the missionary position. You people disappoint me.

I love how the site it points to could be either or Clever, you tricky Mormons.

Posted by Christin | August 29, 2007 10:36 AM

mmmm, they can all convert me over the back of my couch....

Posted by boxofbirds | August 29, 2007 10:37 AM

Okay, I admit, I'd grudge-fuck just about any one of them. Or the two Mormon boys who knocked on my door last week.

Also, apparently Mormons are white bread only. Who knew?

are these Mormon Blow-up Dolls available at the Crypt?

Posted by michael strangeways | August 29, 2007 10:57 AM

They should have used Annie Lennox's Who's That Girl? instead.

Posted by Boomer in NYC | August 29, 2007 11:15 AM

I think the Mormons believe that the darker races are inferior, having their own sort of original sin, though I'm kinda vague on that.

I remember in early on in army basic training, our black drill instructor grilled the lone Mormon kid in our platoon about it. He basically became the platoon bitch for the rest of basic training.

Posted by L-Train8 | August 29, 2007 11:16 AM

How else are they supposed to attract 2 or 3 wives?

Posted by punatero | August 29, 2007 11:17 AM

Batshit crazy indeed.

Posted by momo | August 29, 2007 11:20 AM

So many pouty pouty lips!! Good lord.

Posted by Katelyn | August 29, 2007 11:20 AM


dark skin = extra evil.

It use to be in the Book of Mormon but they removed it because it was obviously offensive.

Its nice how you can edit a so-called "holy" book.

Posted by wow | August 29, 2007 11:25 AM

@4: maybe a little. Just a little. And watching "Latter Days" ups the appeal a bit.

Posted by torrentprime | August 29, 2007 11:33 AM

12 hot men plus roughly 60 wives equals about 500 new Mormons. We are just a generation or so away from the missionary man daily calendar. Yeehaw!

Posted by Marie | August 29, 2007 11:48 AM

does the Book of Mormon outlaw chest hair?

Posted by hair | August 29, 2007 11:48 AM

@21 - they also had to alter the thing about menstruation=abortion to ward off the pedophile police.

Posted by Jayyne John | August 29, 2007 11:59 AM

First - Batshit crazy is the Catholic church. Eating the flesh, geez. Calling children, babies, sinners, geez.

But arguing theology or even the why of churches and the devoted is not my purpose.

The Mormon missionary system is brilliant. It take young men and gives them a ritual of passage doing community service.

The same concept of Ameri corps or the Peace corps. It is the strength of the Mormon church. Trial by fire and learning your own skills and organizing you own life out of range of family and competing interests.

Most will tell you they are the best years of their lives.

And, just to set the record clearly, there is a lot of sex play between the guys. From flirting and fantasy to doing it all night long.

About the same as the Air Force, having done a stint in both. Often held hands with companions, had lots of sex. And was never reprimanded or otherwise censored during a three year mission.

The Mormon garment that is so often mentioned is a full one piece affair, shoulder to knee, and in nylon is SO very silky. All Mormon men and women who are devout wear them.

And, as in the case with matters of religion, Mormons could care less what others think.

#1 - You are correct - if they have not paid big bucks they cannot use that music - it really isn't Annie's style to let crass calendar sales use her music.

She is one of the coolest, but the song is a signature and worth millions and millions for commercial purposes.

Coffman, go grab a client.

Posted by al | August 29, 2007 12:44 PM

It's almost as gay as Playgirl.

I don't think the Mormon Church created this because as @8 said, they would never condone this. From reading the website, I didn't find any charities 'from around the world' that are supposed to benefit from this calendar. Also, the MySpace account doesn't exist anymore.

Posted by ka chunk | August 29, 2007 12:48 PM

@26: I've been suspicious of the Mormons ever since a Mormon kid I knew who seemed reasonably decent went off on his "mission" and came back a raging homophobe. I don't know what kind of brainwashing he got out there but it sure turned him conservative in a hurry.

Posted by Orv | August 29, 2007 1:03 PM

I'm sure it's some sort of scam, but regardless, I'm with #6. Those Latter Day Saints are just as bizarro as any other religion. There's racism, sexism, and non-sensical rules to almost every religion. (Celibacy, no pork, thing on your head, no thing on your head, do this on this day, women can do this, but not that, do this other thing 5 times a day, ashes on your forehead (!), etc.) We're so familiar with these rules that they don't seem unusual anymore, but they are completely random and just for people to feel some structure in there lives.

At least the missionaries get to leave home and see the world. A friend of mine is LDS and he still remembers and uses the Cantonese he learned for his mission to Hong Kong in 1989. Pretty cool.

Posted by hee | August 29, 2007 1:04 PM

@18 -- money. Lots of it.

Posted by Sachi | August 29, 2007 1:05 PM

@30: Oh, sure. I don't think the LDS is any more bizarre than any other organized religion. It's just more recent, so we're less used to it.

Posted by Orv | August 29, 2007 1:12 PM

No question there are cute Mormons. I see it a lot. But so what?

Here's an example of when cute does not equal sexy. It's not unlike the discomfort of being with someone gorgeous who all of a sudden starts taking about "niggers and kikes." In other words, it completely kills it.

Posted by Bauhaus | August 29, 2007 1:41 PM

Of course they love their missions - it's the only vacation they ever get! After they get married, pop out 6 kids, and tithe they can never afford to go on vacation.

Posted by Soupytwist | August 29, 2007 6:33 PM

@26- missions are only two years and if you got caught folling around with your companion, your mission pres. would have had an aneurysm and there would have been an endless and unfun parade of church counselling sessions. and garments have been two-peicers for years. fantasy indeed.

anyway, my lil bro is about to leave on his mission (uh, im very non-practicing) maybe i'll let him know about this so he can have something to keep him busy after he gets back. thanks for the heads up.

There is a new video... different song

Oops, it would help if I give you right link:
