Last week, 25-year-old Jacqueline McKee made local news after playing on a swing set in Bartlett Park.
It wasn't because she's an adult, but because she's an adult "star." A video of McKee exposing herself on various pieces of playground equipment was leaked to the media after someone found it on her pay-to-view adult website.
Along with John Ford, she's earned the dubious distinction of having been mentioned by Jay Leno, and outraged mothers have said they will never let their children on that playground again.
Bartlett police have threatened to charge her with public indecency, but McKee says that won't deter her from shooting in public places ... she just may not do so in Bartlett. — by Bianca Phillips
Flyer: Why did you expose yourself in the park?
McKee: I'm on an adult website, and it features me and my husband and sometimes just me alone. My members like public shots. They can e-mail me and tell me what they'd like me to do next. Somebody asked for a park set, so I went to Bartlett Park to shoot.
Was anyone in the park at the time?
I was the only person in the park that day, and the kids were in school. Nobody saw me or else I wouldn't have been there. I had no idea that it would cause an issue.
Your members request where they'd like you to shoot next?
They can ask me to do whatever they want, like "Will you do a scene with a bridesmaid's dress?" or random stuff like stockings. Or, they may ask me to shoot at a gas station.
Do you often shoot in public places?
I'm trying to do a lot of public shots. I'll definitely be shooting more in public places, in Memphis, Collierville, and Germantown. They're going to have to get used to it.
Are you worried about people seeing you?
I'm very discreet. If I am taking pictures in public, people can't see anything. The only person that can see is the photographer.
What happened when the police came to your house?
Detectives came to my house, and they almost knocked down my door. They said they needed to sit down and talk to me, and it was their decision whether or not I would go to jail. I was only breaking public indecency rules. That's a $500 fine at the most.
They didn't charge me with anything, but they threatened me not to come to Bartlett anymore to shoot.
