It is irresistible. Young (and young-ish) men, willing to perform on-camera, trapped by an oppressive religion that mandates really, really hot undergarments and ready to explode with sexual abandon on a moment's notice. Make mine a double-double.
But MormonBoyz.com (that's so thug) stops being irresistible and rapidly descends into the earthbound when your look beyond their current stable of three (yes, three), albeit HOT models - Elder Wolfington (with a monstrosity of a cock!), Elder Jackson and Elder Smithmyer - and peruse the fine print from their "About Us" section:
"Mormon Missionaries tend to be really nervous (and a tad guilty) about doing this the first time. The nice thing about that is how very real these guys are on camera. But once we get them out of their clothes and hit the record button, it’s amazing how playful they become. Some are still a bit shy and need encouragement but for the most part they really get into it. And the result? I guess you’ll have to be the judge. In my opinion, it’s so sexy."
Uh-huh. Where have I see this before? Where have I seen that aw-shucks, middle-America tone that speaks of a time and a place that exists in fewer and fewer places. Ah, yes. Everywhere, starting with the Prince of Whiteness himself some ten years ago. But that was a different time and Sean Cody was a perfect metaphor for porn in the Bush Years with his Aryan stable of "All American"-ers. But to launch yet another site, now, whose premise here - Missionaries - is so blindingly white in a time of such demographic change just seems plain cuckoo. (In all fairness, men of all races and sexual orientations are encouraged to apply to MormonBoyz..com AND SHOULD.). I suspect you'll have a smattering of racial diversity (nothing too black or too brown, mind you), but by and large this is a site made for and catering to white people. There's nothing wrong with that other than the fact we've seen it before time and time and time again. In fact, I've never said you could or shouldn't build a site based on a racial preference. If you want to launch a site dedicated to nude white boys reading William Shakespeare and jerking off on pictures of President Chester Arthur, go ahead. Fine. But just don't expect me to sit passively by and watch you perpetuate this norm of gay male sexuality (the kind so many get inculcated into thinking is the only norm) that simply does not exist in the real world.And, really, once stripped of their undergarments and laid bare in a hotel room, well, you know the drill...
Something else that struck as oddd was that they have only three models, have a membership fee of 25 bucks and they're asking for donations. What the? Granted, they promise not to the tithe the Mormon Church, but still:
"Not everyone is gay, or interested in this material, I get that. But I bet there are a lot of people who can get behind the vision with some offerings! Use the...form, and change the title to ”Hi-Five.” I’ll send you information on how to make a donation. Because of LDS church involvement in passing Prop 8, I have decided that tithing will not be paid on a single penny from this site’s earnings–and that applies to donations as well.Thank you for your support!"
A donation?! Sure that's enough? I'm sure I don't need this extra Pancreas I've been hanging on to. You know, if they didn't have a membership fee of about $25, I'd say go for it. User-funded-and-built gay porn sites? That's a brilliant idea! But this site is not that. And since I don't know where to find this in the Book of Mormon, I'll say it in English: Put up or shut up. In case no one's bothered to tell you, the economy's in tatters, the country if fraught with a creepy, rising anger and people are looking for an escape, not a reminder of the divisions and Racism that exist in the world a la The Mormon Church. But it's also a clever slap in the face of the Mormon Church which may have been the single biggest factor in robbing us of our marriage rights here in California and then I think: Yay. Where are you when I need you, Magic 8-Ball??
But then I check my meds schedule and breathe. Just breathe...(That's Elder Wolfington on top and Elder Jackson below.)
