From Mormon Virginity to Porn: Meet Amy Bond on OZY's New Podcast - OZY | A Modern Media Company

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

The typical porn narrative goes from bad to worse, but this one goes from devoutly religious to commercially sexual.

Welcome to OZY Confidential, OZY’s new weekly podcast — you know, the one your mother warned you about — for people who think pushing the envelope is the only way to deal with both envelopes and pushingSubscribe now to follow OZY Confidential on Apple, Spotify, Himalaya or wherever you get your podcast/audio.

The weirdness connected to discussing pornography cuts across all kinds of boundaries — political, personal, ethical, philosophical — despite the fact that it documents one of the most natural of all endeavors. So it’s no surprise that when Amy Bond, an observant Mormon and self-described “military brat” who was committed to being a virgin until marriage, came out to Hollywood to become an actress, she ran away from friends and family to do so. 

Booking gigs on daytime TV shows as an extra assuaged the initial concerns of loved ones. But her next act,  stepping into the far more lucrative adult film business? Not so much.

Yet Bond had found what she was searching for: adventure, art, attention, cash and, maybe most notably, total ownership of who she was. Now a lawyer and the owner of two San Francisco Bay Area dance studios, Bond — who is now married — is totally unrepentant about the first of what she hopes are many acts of her American life. 

“I have nothing bad to say about [doing porn],” Bond laughs. “I loved it when I did it.”

So hold the shame, politics and disapproval. Bond is back and making a surprise stop at … OZY Confidential. But we’ll let her tell it.
