KENTUCKY BULGIN

Why Was Gay Porn Hunk Jessie Colter Kicked Out Of A Kentucky Water Park And Threatened With Arrest?

In Kentucky you can legally carry a concealed deadly weapon, but slip that piece in your Speedo and you might run into some trouble.

Self described “plant nerd turned sex icon” Jessie Colter was recently ejected from the Kentucky Kingdom Hurricane Bay water park, called a queer and threatened with arrest after donning red swim briefs.

These red swim briefs, to be exact:

jessie-colter31

A police officer approached Jessie and told him to leave the park or face arrest, so Jessie did what any smart person would do — he left.

No laws appear to have been broken, as the park reserves the right to evict anyone they deem dressed “inappropriately.”

Here’s how they put it:

“Kentucky Kingdom is a family-friendly theme park and reserves the right to determine whether a guest’s attire is appropriate.”

Still, a Speedo can hardly be considered inappropriate.

    What do you expect? It’s Kentucky. Imagine being stationed in Germany where there are little to no hangups about the human form and men wear bathing suits like that all the time at pools and the beach, and then your next duty station being Fort Knox, Kentucky… dry ass Hardin County where Jessie’s bathing suit is seen as inappropriate. But I could see how this would be “deemed” inappropriate… bet if it was a woman, there’d be less condemning and more FAP FAP FAP FAP!!!

  • maxdadmark

    Another reason that after the Civil War, the Union should have left the Confederacy to fend for itself and rot.

  • Uncle Sonny

    @maxdadmark: There was nothing “civil” about the war…and I need to remind you, I have heard of no one, esp those from the bitter north, say “let’s retire in Boston or New York”…………but far be it from me to point out in an ungentlemanly fashion your mistake about the South……

  • mdventura

    What is needed it to locate a female with exposed cleavage, then call for her ouster on the same basis. When that does not take place, file a discrimination suit.

  • mcflyer54

    Wonder if the Kentucky television stations were allowed to broadcast the swimming and diving events at the summer Olympics? Certainly those swimmer’s bathing suits would have been deemed inappropriate for family viewing. But then again, nothing would surprise me when it comes to the backwoods mentality of much of Kentucky.

  • Curtispsf

    Hard to know if it was inappropriate. I would need to see a view from the front. Hard…to make a decision. Understand?

  • Paco

    The same thing happened last year to a woman at a water park in Missouri. It’s all just silly and senseless.

  • friscoguy

    I don’t know nor do I care, but I do want to f*** the guy in those red speedos.

  • mcflyer54

    @Uncle Sonny: if retiring to the south is so wonderful why do so many of those old folks return north every summer? Oh that’s right, they’re trying to get away from the oppressive heat and humidity of the “wonderful” south. Having been born and raised in Arkansas and now living in Ohio you couldn’t pay me to move back to the south.

  • Curtispsf

    He was thrown out of the park because penises are NOT ALLOWED in family parks open to the public in Kentucky. I was at the Kentucky Derby a few months ago and they asked me to check my penis at the door. “Can’t we make this a private party,” I asked? “Make sure I see YOUR privates later,” replied the lanky southern boy at the door. So many horsies…

  • Bad Ass Biker

    Xzamilloh, I agree. First of all it is KY and you could hardly expect anything different. However Jessie probably has a bigger willie than the police officer and was making him feel inadequate.

  • Franco C.

    Puritanical America. In Europe every man dresses like this, gay or straight, and there are children everywhere!

  • SteveDenver

    This article brings up a good point: in too many backwater holes, sexuality is nasty, guns are good. As for the homophobic utterances: “Takes one to know one.”

  • EGO

    Amazing how this country has so many backward states, good comments about KY, a well known lubricant! :>)

  • SteveDenver

    Those at the park probably suspected Coulter’s parents weren’t related before marriage: an abomination in the sight of the Lord!

  • RevJames

    @Uncle Sonny: Defensive much?

  • Kidomega123

    The part where he was “called a queer” is what makes this the most outrageous for me. There are ways they can (politely) enforce their dress code without threats or name calling.

  • Birch411

    The thing I find most disturbing is home being called a “queer”. Louisville has a Fairness Ordinance which prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. He might have a case, there .

  • petensfo

    I suspect this was a “know your place” scenario, not unlike what black people sometimes get. How dare he be unapologetically gay?!

    It’s the same as the, “as long as they don’t flaunt it” rationale of a decade or so ago. Don’t try and make sense of it because a double-standard never makes sense.

    Now do me a favor, all you gays, and show some solidarity with our gay-porn brothers & sisters and please trash all those board shorts bathing suits you’ve been dragging around for far too long.

  • Ben Dover

    @maxdadmark: Kentucky never seceded from the Union and was never part of the Confederacy, you can look it up. (Sorry to be pedantic! I understand your sentiment though.)

  • Ogre Magi

    the South is such a rottenplace

  • DarthKitsune

    Someone in charge recognized him as one hell of a hunky pornstar and got all uppity. ‘Nuff said. Kudos to Jesse for not having a total bitch fit and flipping the fuck out like I would have.

  • gracchus

    @maxdadmark: I hate to break this to you, but Kentucky was not a member of the Confederacy. It was a border state, and during the Civil War, it was predominantly a supporter of the Union. It was only after the War was over that a certain nostalgia for what was perceived as a better time, for a number of reasons, that a large number of Kentuckians began to think of themselves as Southerners and to identify with the Old South.

    Even if your theory were true, Louisville, where the Kentucky Kingdom is located, is hardly a bastian of conservative, anti-bellum thought. It is probably the most progressive and one of the handful of gay-friendly Kentucky cities in this state.

    I would suggest that if there is real animus here toward Mr. Colter, it is coming from a handful of bigoted jerks. Please don’t condemn all of us in Kentucky because of one or two bigots.

  • rextrek

    seems like blatant homophobia and jealousy at play here….F Kentucky and thier Embarrassing Creationist Museum

  • redcarpet

    I grew up in Central California which is pretty damn conservative, and no one bats an eye at speedo’s at water parks, even little kids would wear them.

    Especially if they didn’t post a No Speedo’s rule somewhere. The guy could have just worn some board shorts and avoided the whole mess. So I am inclinded to agree with the assessment of homophobia.

  • John

    @Xzamilloh: Are you kidding? I was kicked out of water world for wearing one, and I’m ON a swim team legitimately! I was told I had to cover up with board shorts that reached the knee of leave, and I left on the grounds I wasn’t going to give them $20 more dollars to buy shorts from them – not that I wouldn’t put shorts on. I grew up and am living once again in Norcal and this happened at the water world here. Specifically the problem was my bulge because you point out little kids are allowed to wear them but because they have no package it isn’t “obscene” like mine is. My friend who came with pointed out if there was a woman with tig ole biddies in a tiny bikini top there would be not a soul around who would tell her to put a non-white t-shirt on.

    Be it homophobia or not (nobody is a mind reader like professor X so we can only infer and it is wrong to make assumptions based on what you think someone else is thinking WHATEVER that individual is thinking) I’ve found the rule is speedos are only allowed at practice in the pool or on the public beach. I don’t like this rule, but I understand the businesses (and if you check they say it on their websites no speedos allowed and/or speedos are considered inappropriate swimwear for adult males) saying we run this place, it’s our house and our rules – you don’t like it you don’t have to be here.

    We should counter this by having our own water park where we make the rules and allow this, and when/if people complain “I don’t approve of you allowing people to wear X” then we would say “You don’t like it? Go somewhere else.” That’s freedom baby!

  • mz.sam

    I bet if it was a female in a red bikini this would not have happened. Jesse has a case in filing for a lawsuit against the park.

  • TVC 15

    @John: If I had my own water park, no one would be wearing anything.

  • John

    This is a case of values dissonance. When I was stationed in Japan, being military it is extremely common for guys and a few girls for that matter to get all tatted up. Half sleeves, full sleeves, tramp stamps, or just the common eagle/tribal/dragon tattoo, and Japan has SERIOUS hang ups about tattoos because the mafia identifies themselves with them. There was ever bitching and moaning from service members who were crying their little eyes out because the Japanese would bar guys with tattoos from using their water parks and or group hot spring baths because they have tattoos.

    ???They would say and make an “X” with their arms which is their equivalent of here putting your hand out to say “Stop”. These guys with their often times military related tattoos and sometimes wearing their dog tags could hardly be mistaken for being part of the mafia but still Japan had their rules and regulations and what they deem is appropriate and they say tattoos are bad and they don’t want anything to do with it. That’s just the way it is, plenty of guys disagreed with it and were furious that they were barred from entry. There were bars and clubs that outright would refuse entry to anyone who WASN’T Japanese!

    Still, its their country and their rules, and they are largely homogenous with one culture and tons of crazy subcultures. This dude from this story did the right thing and left. Calling the Police is more than a bit of overkill unless the dude flat out said something like I’m leaving over my dead body. I have no tattoos so I could go to these places, but now that I’m back in Cali I re-joined a swim team and the speedo is the only suit I have so I’m S-O-L for any water park anywhere in this state and I’ve done the research. I still maintain that the best way to get back is to make our/your own business park with our own rules.

    @gracchus: Louisville is awesome. Was at their gay pride a few years back and could not have found a more welcoming group of people.

  • Lvng1tor

    The officer was just jealous that this guy’s piece was bigger than his. Probably everything Jesse has (except stomach and duck dynasty action figure collection) is bigger and better than the cop’s . It’s such BS…if more men took care of their bodies and minds then they wouldn’t feel the need to eject others they feel are “better” than them. If even one “bubba” wife (and a few Bubba’s with funny itches in their pee pee’s ) didn’t want to fuck this guy there would have been no problem.

  • IanHunter

    That is his where he got his start was the club in Louisville. He has a huge fan base especially here in Kentucky. I hate that he was threatened with arrest they should have just asked him to put on another swim short. That would have been a better way to handle the situation than threatening him with jail. I loved living in Louisville and the people are friendly overall, but as in all places you have those people that are always wanting to censor any community different than their own. Keep wearing that Speedo Jessie.

  • spanky

    I wonder if the frontal bulge was intimidating? I wanna see!!!

  • redboy70

    God forbid an innocent child see the outline of a penis but let’s go shoot something and blow it up. Yee haw!

  • maxdadmark

    @Ben Dover: you are right, of course. But it is currently part of the Poverty & Ignorance Belt.

  • out91394

    At the water park here in Louisville the police patrol just like park security. So the police was not called. I have lived in Louisville my whole life except the few years I was in the Navy. I have to say we have a large accepting group of people in this city, we also have our share of bigots like any other city. Don’t judge a whole city of over 400k by the actions of a few.

  • maxdadmark

    @out91394: no, we judge you by your laws and who the MAJORITY of the population elects.

  • out91394

    Louisville does have fairness law that prohibits discrimination based on orientation or gender identity. The park itself has the rule against speedos the rest of us in the state love them. To be fair though I have seen women wearing attire at the water park that should have gotten them harpooned. I understand That good ole Mitchy boy is more than a little embarrassing he did not when Louisville in the last election as far as I know but I could be wrong. Our city has many great things going for it so unless you come to see for yourself don’t judge.

  • out91394

    Ok my brain was moving faster than my hands again fill in the massive screw ups as I am not rewriting the whole thing.

  • truckproductions

    Such a joke of an excuse.. After all you know they’re not turning away women in bikini bottoms.. Paranoid insecure douches

  • JimboinLA

    Speedos don’t have a Diesel logo on the ass. Those aren’t speedos, they’re ‘show off your junk’ tiny red shorts. IMAO inappropriate for a family water park. I would feel very uncomfortable if my nine year old niece were standing behind the junk show in line. The guy is an exhibitionist/porn star. Stop making us look creepy. Put on some swim trunks for goodness sake. No one wants to know what religion you are (old, old joke, but appropriate).

  • jonjct

    @Lvng1tor: I was pulled over on the NJ Turnpike by the State Police. The officer was showing SO MUCH bulge I thought I would faint. He knew he had it and he was flaunting it, because we all know you CAN hide it when we need to. This cop was probably scoring all kinds of bj’s from the women. He was latino, and it was 10 years ago, I can still see it in my mind. I’m going to pass out again a SLBIrojhuw

  • JimboinLA

    The difference between women in skimpy shorts and men in skimpy short is pretty simple. Woman have their sex organs on the inside. Men have theirs on the outside. It’s about a blatant display of sex organs in a family setting.

  • geothevanni

    The real crime here is denying the good people of Kentucky the sight of this man in his speedo. Come on!

  • chuck

    DAMN, turn around, I just might you to come over to my house and swim. I don’t have a pool, but we can work around that…

  • cghmid

    @JimboinLA: Seriously? Ever heard of “camel toe”. How about tits hanging out of a tiny bikini top? Try again.

  • scott609

    @maxdadmark: Just a historical note, Kentucky fought on the side of the North during the Civil War. So we would still be stuck with them, either way.

  • rickhfx

    @petensfo:
    Board shorts are better know as curtains of shame. Board shorts are so uncomfortable especially when wet, why do men wear them? If you don’t want to see me in my bikini don’t look, simple. Why are Americans so afraid of a male bulge, I just don’t get it, all men have one. Women don’t cover up why should men?

  • michael mellor

    The amount of fabric in this guy’s Speedo is the same – or even more – than what you find in a woman’s bikini bottom. Why is he being told to leave but women in bikini bottoms aren’t? It’s a double standard.

    If his Speedo was see-through, I can understand why management might tell him to leave. I have no doubt that management would also tell a woman with a see-through bikini to leave. However, what appears to have happened here is that management at Kentucky Kingdom are applying different standards to men and women even though the amount of skin shown in the bottom region is the same.

  • michael mellor

    I wonder if the rise of feminism has created a new political correctness in the USA which discourages men from looking sexy in public. A man in a Speedo on a public beach can look very sexy and yet you almost always see American men wearing these clumsy big shorts on the beach. Contrast this with what you see in countries like Russia or Italy or Brazil where many men wear tiny Speedos on public beaches.

    It’s interesting to speculate that a pro-female political correctness has created a climate in the USA which is so rabidly anti-male, anything that represents maleness is shouted down or discouraged in the mainstream.

    Ultimately, this can also harm gay men because gay men are men first. Attacking maleness is also an attack on male homosexuality.

  • Mezaien

    Kentucky, is like Arizona, I flash the toilet when I done.

    @truckproductions: “Here is their facebook page… tho the minute you try and post about it they block you.. but keep trying!

    https://www.facebook.com/kentuckykingdom

    Well, their FaceBook page currently has a debate going on about breastfeeding in the park, which is legal in KY, but the park says that women can only do it provided they use discretion (the quality of behaving or speaking in such a way as to avoid social embarrassment or distress). If they’re having a conniption over the site of a baby nursing, one could only imagine how they feel about other body parts.

    The bashing of Kentucky and of the South in general here makes one believe that this only happens in in certain parts of North America. In seemingly liberal NYC, though, men wearing square-cut Brazilian trunks (“sungas” in Portuguese), or any bathing suit cut above the knee (briefs, bikini) are routinely harassed at Riis Beach (Jacob Riis Park, Far Rockaway, in the outer borough of Queens). The gay section of this beach is not secluded, but off to the eastern end, and the adjacent hetero sections are overwhelmingly intolerant and abusive towards the (gay) men who chose to tan as much of their body as possible.

    This phenomenon, then, is American (although Mexicans are just as priggish as their northern neighbors). Why is there so much shame about the (gay) male body?

    If you have the body of Brazilian models Rodiney Santiago (The A-List: NY — a gay reality series that aired on Logo TV) or Marlon Teixeira (fashion supermodel), then please get a “sunga” and wear it proudly in solidarity.

  • DawnTrans

    @michael mellor: Its not about feminism. The men who make these rules do so because they would look more then rediculess wearing something that skimpy. Fat Old Men in power darling….

  • justSomeGuyFromNJ

    Sure, but chicks can wear bikini bottoms that look like dental floss.

    It’s gender-based discrimination; plain and simple.

  • RIGay

    Baggy shorts hanging off your ass – Okay.
    Speedo holding firm – Not okay.

  • Teeth

    Sorry– but I just totally agree with asking him to leave. How freakin stupidly selfish we gay men can be to think that we have the right to turn every public scenario into a stage to prove our right to be sexual. It’s NOT ALWAYS about being “on”. Had he been singled out, I would be all over the South bashing, but this isn’t that. When you go someplace, be it an event or a trip, don’t you look around to see how the people around you are behaving? Why would you want to disrupt that? Oh that’s right, everything is always about our sex. sheesh

  • Gans

    @gracchus: Well said. Thank you.

  • Rugbycowboy

    What does the back of his Speedo say? I know it Screams “Mighty Fine Ass” butt I cannot make out the words. Is it possible someone found those words offensive?

  • Texasteacher

    There’s a difference between “sexy” and “sexual.” His swimwear was sexy. He is sexy. Anyone, regardless of what they are wearing could behave in a sexual way. As someone who is nearly 50, I remember the 1970’s when any public pool or beach had at least a few men wearing speedos. During the 1980’s, it became less acceptable until now, where many heterosexuals consider it inappropriate for men to even reveal their knees. It’s a puritanical hang-up not shared by Europeans, Brazilians, Canadians, etc. When a water park, public pool or beach wants to get too specific about swimwear, they need to issue their own swimsuits. In any event, they need to clearly post their rules instead of making them up as they go so customers can decide if they want to visit. Having completely separate rules about the revealing nature of swimsuits for men and women is sexist. Additionally, any employee who directs obscene language to a customer needs to be fired.

  • seaguy

    Kentucky the land of Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul that right there should tell you that they are not going to take kindly to anything that is not family friendly bible totting, gospel singing conservative.

    Sadly when you go to hick states you deal with shit like that. I am sure there were more than a few fat women and men who were wearing way too tight bathing suites that were not asked to leave but then they were not sexy like he was. Someone jealous bitch probably snitched that he was offending her after she caught her husband looking at Jessie and how he fills out his speedo.

    The only theme park I would go to in the South is Dollywood.

  • Kathukid

    Didn’t you know that only “queers” wear Speedos in America? Red-blooded heterosexual men wear baggy bathing suits that go to their knees to properly conceal the family jewels from public viewing. We don’t want the children frightened by seeing a man’s body.

  • itzallan

    In most of the U.S. the definition of family-friendly is stuck in the ’50s. As far as what people wear, young kids really don’t care; it’s the adults who are offended if someone shows too much of the body. It’s probably because the adults don’t want to be reminded of how much extra fat their bodies have. But it’s not like that everywhere. In California, I used to go to a nudist beach where even families would bring their young kids, and the kids would have fun playing together and wouldn’t even notice the nudity. To them it just seemed natural, which is about as natural as it comes.

  • Teeth

    @itzallan: Spoken as someone who hasn’t raised a kid. When one person sticks out for being especially fat, or especially fit, or for wearing much more, or much less, kids notice. And post latency they ABSOLUTELY notice big boobs or big crotches.

  • courthousedoc

    The cop would have left him alone if he’d have offered him a doughnut.

  • JimboinLA

    @cghmid: Camel toe is just a crease. If her clitoris was popping out and visible through the fabric that would be the only comparable thing.

  • Cee

    He’s too sexual to wear that to the water park. I look at him in that speedo and want to bang his brains out. I’m sure all the women at the water park were lookin at him like that too instead of paying attention to their bad ass kids at the water park.

  • Cee

    @seaguy: lol When you’re fat and wear stuff like that no one cares. Jessie has too much going on to be wearing that at a family oriented water park though lol I’m sure all of the women were looking wishing their husbands looked like that. I know some of the men were looking too. That’s hard not to look at even if you’re straight lol

  • maxdadmark

    @itzallan: I agree 100%. Ignore “teeth,” just another uptight prig who hides behind “family” and kids. The religious right, politically correct, and pseudo-psych crowd want EVERY place to be safe for the precious children. Christ, even our pride rallies have petting zoos and clowns. There is nothing wrong with the human body, only in America. This crowd will homeschool their kids and demand that they be able to take them everywhere, expecting the rest of us to cowtow to their shallow Puritanism.
