Jeremy Show in Colorado Sparks Some Heat

BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado – Sex sells. And it incites.

Even in a small community like Summit County, there are plenty of chances to feel offended – or turned on – by the latest sexually oriented entertainment.

Not long ago, residents fought Harry Trubounis’ proposed strip club.

Naked Ullr Fest parade participants annually offend some people.

Even Copper Mountain Resort moved this Sunday’s Eenie Weenie Bikini Contest to the East Village, away from the main entertainment, so guests could choose whether or not they wanted to see it, said resort spokesperson Jamie Wilson.

Thursday night, porn star Ron Jeremy came to Summit County.

Sherpa & Yeti’s hosted a 20-minute stand-up comedy routine by Jeremy, followed by a question-and-answer session and a lap dance competition.

Jeremy has starred in 1,700 pornographic movies since 1978. AVN (Adult Video News) named him the top porn star of all time.

He starred in the recent feature film, “Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy,” which the Chicago Film Critics Association nominated as the best documentary of 2002.

Adam Frager, co-owner of Sherpa & Yeti’s, saw Jeremy’s appearance in Breckenridge as an alternative form of entertainment.

“When you live in a small town, it’s easy for people to get tired of the same thing,” Frager said.

“This is more mainstream and for entertainment value than it is to see a porn star. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s family entertainment, but it’s not some perverse subculture we’re bringing in. Ron Jeremy has been trying to crack into mainstream media for the last 10 years and not just be known as a porn star.”

“Porn star is secondary,” said Josh Frager, Sherpa’s co-owner.

“The guy’s a pop icon. We’re brought him because he’s hilarious. He’s on VH-1 all the time. That doesn’t make VH-1 a pornographic station.”

But Kristen Pascot, secretary at the Rocky Mountain Bible Church in Frisco, saw it as perverse.

“I think it sends the wrong message about our community,” Pascot said. “We’re a family community, and I don’t think porn should be part of the family.”

She said most of the congregation feels the same way.

Regan Wood, executive director of Advocates for Victims of Assault, said Jeremy’s presence is degrading to women.

“I find it distasteful in a community this size,” Wood said.

“This doesn’t seem to be the type of community where we need to be taking pictures with porn stars.”

The Fragers added a lap dance competition to fill the void left from Jeremy’s short show. They said it will be “pretty clean, not too risqué.”

They did a practice run on a Sunday night about a month ago to make sure it didn’t get out of control.

The town of Breckenridge suspended a liquor license at The Alligator Lounge, located where Sherpa’s is now, in 1999 because owners Todd Elmer and Paul Weldon violated the Conduct of Establishment by allowing nudity. Adam Frager said he’ll prevent nudity by reminding dancers to keep it clean.

Women can choose for whom they dance, and last month most chose a female subject, which elicited the strongest response from the men in the crowd, Adam Frager said.

“I think (lap dances) are hot,” said Breckenridge resident Lindsey Arnold.

“Let people do what they want to do. If it’s not the kind of thing you want to let yourself be entertained by, don’t go.”

Michael “Big Gay Mike” Ward, a bouncer at the Goat in Keystone, used to dance at private clubs in Indiana and, on occasion, with the Chippendales.

He fully supported Jeremy’s show and the lap dance contest.

“I think the more sexual release everyone can get – whether it’s physical contact or fantasy – is great because we’re being repressed by our country,” Ward said.

“I think it’s an innocent way to release our natural feelings. The (increased) exposure to our natural feelings leads to a better rounded, more sexually-stable person.”
