Mormon pornography is a subgenre of pornography themed around the Mormon religion.[1] According to the journalist Isha Aran, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) views Mormon pornography as blasphemous, and most directors and performers in Mormon pornography are ex-Mormons.[2] Mormon pornography typically depicts sex acts between actors and/or actresses portraying members of the LDS Church. Mormon elders are depicted as domineering over their multiple wives, who obediently submit to their husband's commands, treating participation in the act as a sacred duty. Performers may be (initially) dressed in temple garments, and the setting may be the inside of a Mormon temple. In accordance with stereotyped Mormon norms, profane language is absent.[2]

Aran writes that the genre originated in 2010 with the launch of the gay pornography site[2] Website founder Legrand Wolf claims to be an ex-Mormon with a doctoral degree from Brigham Young University.[3] [4] The site, launched in 2014, by a woman known in the industry as Brooke Hunter, a 33-year-old ex-Mormon, features both heterosexual and lesbian relationships between Mormon characters.[2]

Wolf's pornography has been rejected by Utah's Pride organization, with its executive director, the former leader of Utah's branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, stating, "LeGrand Wolf isn't a person. That disturbs me, that we don't know who these people are and where they come from."[4]
