You don’t even want to know what it looks like they’re doing once bubbles get involved. 

Back in the mid-aughts or so, the Internet was inundated with images of “bubble porn,” SFW images of bikini-clad girls that were Photoshopped to look NSFW. Basically, the Photoshopper puts strategically placed bubbles over women’s bodies to make it look as if they’re naked, like so:

The technique was also called “Mormon porn,” presumably because girls who only looked like they’re naked wasn’t as offensive to Mormon God as girls who are actually naked… or something.

Given the abundance of honest-to-goodness, for-real-and-true naked girls on the Internet, you might be wondering what, exactly, is the appeal of “bubble porn.” Well, your guess is as good as ours.

But regardless of bubble porn’s origins, we’re forever grateful to the anonymous sexually frustrated due with mediocre Photoshop skills who invented it. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be hilarious, totally NSFW videos like this bubble porn clip.

Created by HelloDenizen, “Bubble P0rn” is about as porny as you can get without, you know, actually being porn. It features a series of nubile bikini models performing various activities of a non-sexual nature, like looking through a telescope with a muscular man standing over them.

Of course, the strategically placed bubbles make the action look, um, a lot less innocuous than it actually is, so don’t watch this in front of your boss or your kids, unless you have a very cool boss or a very open relationship with your kids. And yeah, probably not even then.
