Lots of art is homoerotic, Mormon art or otherwise. I remember this depiction of Lehi because of Sam, the shirtless guy in the bottom left. Those flaming locks of hair, that shoulder, those forearms and hands always pushed me over the edge just a little.
Closeted little boys today now have a whole new set of posters to look to for, um, inspiration. These are way better than the ones I had growing up.
My favorite: Samuel the Lamanite, with his bulging thighs and calf muscles like bowling pins wearing this seasons hottest new robe and belt across that low cut skirt. The only thing straight in this picture are the arrows.
The Brother of Jared who’s real name is Mahonri Moriancumer (“cumer” haha) is seen here in a graceful and manly pose. Girl, I’m loving the leg warmers.
Dark room? Leather? Bondage? I declare!
The Army of Helaman was apparently comprised of 2000 half naked men without a woman to be seen for miles! I still wouldn’t want to join the armed forces but would I let these Stripling Warriors rescue me from peril? Abs and Pecs-aloutly!
Ammon, you beefcake of a man! How many hours a day are you at the gym? I mean, look at those arms! (I’m a sucker for nice arms.) That shoulder is like a grapefruit! Knee-high boots are in this year and what is that around your thigh? A garter of some kind? I like that. (This poster gets me all hot and bothered. Ammon is my dream husband.)
Don’t worry ladies, there is a poster for you too. Fresh off the runways of that model show, these girls know how to smize, and smize they do! And they are sporting the hottest accessory this year (and every year) for the young Mormon gal… a baby.
