SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A San Francisco website is using images of Mitt and Ann Romney to sell "magical Mormon underwear."

MormonsSecret.com, run by an "ex-Mormon" using the alias Ann Jackson, said the "magical Mormon underwear" it sells for men and women are authentic "temple garments" made according to the specifications for the garments the Mormon religion requires most adults to wear, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

The website uses pictures of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his wife Ann Photoshopped onto the bodies of models wearing the garments.

Jackson said she is an "ex-Mormon" who formerly worked for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' "temple clothing division."

Jackson said she does not see anything wrong with selling the garments as Halloween costumes or "fetish wear."

"If I wanted to put on a kippah and go as a Jewish rabbi, no one would think twice about it, but magic Mormon underwear, it's like they take themselves so seriously and they can't see why it's really funny," Jackson said. "I kind of get something like people having collars or kippahs to signify something religious but that it's in your underwear? It seems so amusingly incongruent."
