Up until now, only a small handful of people have known that I am currently making a documentary about the sexual histories of people who grew up Mormon. Yes, I have more than 10 hours of film footage with people from Utah talking about the dark side of sexuality among young Mormons in Mormon Sex.
I also have a half-dozen podcasts about to come out. In this inaugural episode, I interviewed the brave and beautiful Regina Samuelson, author of I’m (No Longer) A Mormon and one of my volunteer editors for The Korihor Argument.
Regina dishes on the first time that she practiced self-loving, wondering about other girls doing it, why she cried with fear that God would strike her dead, and why Mormonism needs an update on its backwards policy.
(Get your headphones ready – you’ve been warned.)
So, exactly what happened to Mormon Sex?
Sadly, it had to come to a pause because I ran out of money to make it happen. So I’m doing something rather daring – I’m crowdfunding.
Don’t worry, I’m not about to hit you up for money. (I’m hitting you up for shares and tweets).
Mormon Sex needs you and your social media power.
Once the Kickstarter goes live, it is going to be a mad dash to make the goal that will allow me, for the first time, to take my camera outside of Utah and collect stories from the dozens of Mormons, Ex-Mormons and mental health professionals across the USA who have agreed to be in the film.
I will need to be able to send you podcasts, exclusive interviews, events and things to tweet, share, like and help out with.
