It’s mating season in Key West again, and the gods of fertility and drunken revelry were offered their not-so-virgin sacrifices each night at the HotMovies.com sponsored wet t-shirt contest held at Rick’s bar. I’d never been to Spring Break before (although I have seen the "Girls Gone Wild" videos advertised on late night tv), so when I was asked to cover the 2007 Key West Spring Break I thought it might be an amusing week and a chance to escape the frigid North East for a bit.
The assignment seemed pretty easy. My job was to videotape and photograph drunk college girls as they were doused in water and danced for the throng of young horny college boys in the bizarre mating ritual called the wet t-shirt contest. I saw it as an opportunity to head someplace tropical for a week, and see what the hype of Spring Break was all about.
I arrived at Rick’s about an hour before midnight, when the wet tee shirt contest was scheduled to begin. By this time, warmed up by the many drink specials and jello shots being offered all along Duvall street, the intoxication level of the crowd was already pretty high. Girls were being rounded up for the contest with an incentive of winning at least $500 from HotMovies.com and the potential for even more cash. Part of the contest included an auction for the right to be the water-boy, with whatever the high bid amounted to going to the winner. It was apparent that it was early in the week for many of the guys in the audience, because they still had between $200 and $300 cash to win the honor of soaking the girls on stage.
Backstage, the half a dozen or so seemingly inebriated young girls were stripping down to their thong panties and changing into their white cotton t-shirts and red booty shorts. The crowd of testosterone driven fraternity guys were instructed to make a lot of noise for the girl who they felt deserved to win, and assured that the louder they were, the more the girls would be willing to show. The co-eds lined up in a row on stage, dressed in their skimpy outfits and flip-flops, ready to get wet and messy to win some cash.
One by one the young college girls were paraded across the stage and led to the soaking station. There the winning bidder dipped a pitcher into a tub of icy-cold water and proceeded to thoroughly soak the girls until their tee shirts became translucent. Their hardened nipples were visible enough to encourage the crowd to scream for more as they danced and teased the men by occasionally flashing their tits and shaking their asses. Many of them seemed nervous and a bit modest at first, but as the crowd chanted "take it off, take it off", it wasn’t long before inhibitions were lost along with soggy white shirts.
The contests were held in two rounds, with each girl either elimated or chosen to go to round two based on the volume of the cheers received for their performance. By the second round, the girls who truly wanted to win gave the crowd what they wanted, which was more nudity. Shorts were abandoned followed quickly by thongs, until most of the girls were totally naked. The rush of being an exhibitionist was obvious in their eyes, and you could see that many of them were obviously turned on by the attention they received. The girl who received the loudest and most enthusiastic cheers was designated the winner.
I was originally supposed to videotape each night for 5 nights, however a winter ice storm in the northeast left me stranded in Key West for an additional 5 days! So here I am, with two more nights to go as I wrap up my review. I have hours of video which will be edited and up on HotMovies.com within a couple of weeks, so check them out here to see what you missed! You can also watch my Fantasy Fest in Key West videos here.
