About

Mormon Porn or Bubble Porn, also known as “Bubble Collage” (Japanese: 水玉コラ, Mizutama Kora) in Japan, refers to photoshoped pictures of girls looking like naked, which are made by concealing their outfits by the “bubbling”[1] technique.

Origin

This kind of photoshop technique began to be practiced in the threads in /morningcoffee/, a board for isolating fanatics of Japanese female idol collective Hello! Project[2], in the Japanese textboard community 2channel around June, 2007. That board users had continued making “10-yen Collage” (10円コラ), another photo collages of making female idols look like naked by concealing their outfits by 10-yen coins, since the spring of 2004. This technique was one of the derivatives developed in a series for that thread.[3][4]

In those days, this kind of photoshopped images was called in various names like “Marble Collage” (ビー玉コラ), “Worm-eaten Collage” (虫食いコラ) or “Perforated Collage” (穴あきコラ). However, it had never spread to the outside of the board.

Spread

This kind of photos finally entered the spotlight by a thread in /news4vip/, the most aggressive meme generating board in 2channel, in the end of 2009.[5] Since this thread was soon summarized and reprinted with uploaded images to many affi-blogs, earning money by summarizing popular 2channel threads, this technique began getting a strong presence on the web. In that time, this kind of photoshopped pictures were called “Looking Like Naked (Photos)” (裸に見える, Hadakani Mieru). Japanese programmers launched image generator services for this technique called “Wormy”[6] and “Circle Effect”[7] in the following month.

Then, the name of this kind of photoshopped images was fixed to “Bubble Collage” (水玉コラ) around 2011 because affi-blogs had continually reported bubble porn threads with the same name in /ascii/, board for links to photos and videos for adults, in 2channel’s sister community for adult contents BBSPINK since late 2010.

On August 2012, an official idol photo book which enables manual bubbling effect by scissors and cutters was released by a Japanese publisher.[8]

Outside Japan

I Am Board user fancylad[9] introduced this technique in the entry “How To Make Mormon Porn” on February 9th, 2010[10]. Then this technique became to be called “Bubbling”.

“bubble porn” became a topic on the Japanese internet near the end of 2009. Here in Japan, its origin was a thread on 2channel and it is called “Hadaka ni Mieru” (裸に見える, lit. looks like naked)

In Jan 2010, a Japanese programmer released its web application named “Wormy”. So, we Japanese don’t need to do such a roundabout sort of way.

However, Japanese internet users had been already bored by it after several months. Now, no Japanese rejoice at it in particular.

So, I think you westerners will be bored by this soon.
