Naked Girls Reading: Independent Women

Forget Pitchfork. See girls read naked tonight instead.
The concept behind Naked Girls Reading is all in the title. It’s girls who are naked who are also reading. Or girls who are reading who are also naked. Since Michelle L’amour and Franky Vivid created Naked Girls Reading a little over a year ago, their events have taken off. Sure, there are more than enough videos and photos to go around, but seeing these lovely ladies read live is apparently “something spiritual.” These readings have become so popular that Naked Girls Reading has branched out to eight more cities and will be adding five more soon. Naked Girls Reading also leads naked-centric workshops, such as figure drawing or the nuts and bolts of strip-teasing.

Chicago Naked Girls Readings take place just about every month or so at the Studio L’amour. Unfortunately, we missed the vampire-themed Fang Fiction reading last month, but Time Out Chicago photographer Brendan Lester helped us get the gist with a [NSFW] photo gallery. Lucky us, there’s another one happening tonight. This month’s Independent Women Naked Girls Reading celebrates freedom from restrictions and from clothing. In this blistering heat, we certainly hope the Studio L’amour has AC. Or else we might have to take of our clothes, too.

Naked Girls Reading: Independent Women, Studio L’amour, 939 W. Randolph, 7 pm - 10 pm, $20 per ticket or $35 for two via paypal
