Men on Mission

posted by on July 12 at 11:42 AM

Sexy, sexy Mormon boys…


Grumpy, grumpy Mormon elders

A Las Vegas man who devised a calendar that features shirtless Mormon missionaries is facing a disciplinary hearing and possible excommunication because of the project.

A lifetime member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Chad Hardy was summoned by letter to a Sunday meeting with a council of elders to discuss his “conduct unbecoming a member of the church.”

Thanks, PopTart!

Uh, that is one attractive Mormon. Damn.

You know that whole discussion about the male version of butterface? Can we come up with a term that describes someone who is hot, but has some sort of crazy belief system? Like a super-hot Mormon, or JW, or conservative Christian, or Republican?

When it's the political equivalent of a butterface, I would call him a 'friend of George W'.

Mormons are easy.

Posted by w7ngman | July 12, 2008 12:42 PM

Mormon guys are hot. That's a fact.

Holy fuck!

I guess they goofed when the decided not to include their 12 year old wives alongside them in the calendar.

Posted by kinaidos | July 12, 2008 2:02 PM

These young men are about 20 years away from being old enough to score the 12 y/o brides.

I don't have a term for it, either, but I sure have the mental category. I think things like, "I'm not sticking it in YOU", or "No soup for you!!!", but I can't boil it down to a pithy phrase or word.

Now if they had him posing in LDS-certified Jesus jammies, that would be really hot!

Mormons do not necessarily equal polygamists or creepy child-bride takers. Just sayin'.

And, for reals, that's one hot Mormon.

#7 Different Mormans.

during my 3 year mission, in Canada, I did about 40 of them - better than a Navy submarine - did that too

biology always wins, ask a sex advice writer

and the same sweet guys will not cheat on their women when they marry even if they cruise out now and then

@ Julie,

I know, I know! He's a "Tom Cruise".

Posted by yucca flower | July 12, 2008 3:41 PM

I wonder what his missionary position is?

Posted by MrEdCT | July 12, 2008 4:22 PM

Thank you, Dan, for posting that smokin' hot picture again.

Posted by PopTart | July 12, 2008 4:58 PM

You want footage of hot Mermans?

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | July 12, 2008 5:16 PM

Will they be doing a calendar of the disciplinary sessions? A DVD, perchance?

Posted by NapoleonXIV | July 12, 2008 6:24 PM

I saw this on a Spokesman-Review blog yesterday. Yawn. Try to keep up.

“conduct unbecoming a member of the church.”

huh-huh-huh, he said "member."

so, gay men, are the guys made hotter by their possible/likely virgin status? i know it increases their appeal for me...

Twinkies like this are the reason I don't answer the door when they come a-knocking*.

Send a man who looks like a man and maybe I'll pretend to listen to you while I ogle you.

Otherwise, leave me a pamphlet I can throw away.

*No prejudice intended to Mormons in general, one of my dearest friends is one. They just don't pick the "finest in masculinity" (aka "lumberjack-types") to spread their word.

Someone's rockin my dreamboat...It's an elder.

That Mormon on the cover, I totally want to get my hand down his temple garments.

Posted by rb | July 13, 2008 4:21 PM

Man, what took the Mormons so long? They're just trying to catch up with the Catholics, of course, with their humpy, babe-a-licious Vatican boy calendar, Calendario Romano:

which has been around for years.

Can't touch them Catholics.

Posted by MichaelPgh | July 13, 2008 5:00 PM

Oh, you do not want to hook up with a Mormon.

No matter how much fresh-scrubbed, corn-fed, clean-cut charm he may possess, it can only turn out to be a clumsy, desperate, sex-starved fumble followed by a series of intense, shame-based recriminations.

Take it from someone who knows.

Posted by Brandon Burt | July 13, 2008 10:12 PM

Am I wrong or are there more gays amongst Mormons than in the general population? Because while I don't know many Mormons, about a third of those I do know are gay.

Posted by mission impossible | July 13, 2008 10:48 PM

I want to figure out a way to get excommunicated. Being a practicing homosexual with extremely liberal views hasn't done the job so far.

Posted by Carollani | July 14, 2008 8:55 AM

@26, that's the best kind of sex there is.

I've been staring at that Mormon for like two days. Fortunately I have a dentist appointment this morning to break me of this obsession.

Posted by rb | July 14, 2008 9:59 AM

I love the URL above,

It could read "Mormons Exposed" or "Mormon Sex, Posed".

I'll take either.

Posted by LD | July 14, 2008 11:41 AM

@27 There is some evidence that males lower in birth order are more likely to be gay. Since mormons have obnoxiously huge families, there's a greater chance that the youngest sons are homo.
I think Dan even posted something about this exact scenario some time ago.

Posted by GS | July 14, 2008 12:24 PM

Just an update, he was exed last night (what all former mo's call it) for this transgression. He hasn't been actively participating in the church, paying his 10% tithes or wearing the Jesus jammies(I love that description) for several years, so I guess the excommunication won't be all that tough on him.
As a former mo' myself, it's just as easy to resign.

Posted by memikeyounot | July 14, 2008 7:54 PM

Gosh, i'd like to invite him in to discuss celestial bodies.
