Topless Co-Ed Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society Bares It All In The NYC


“We’re a group of friends, and friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends, and complete strangers, who love good books and sunny days and enjoying both as nearly in the altogether as the law allows. Happily, in New York City, the law allows toplessness by both men and women. So that’s the way we do our al fresco reading. If you’re in New York and the weather’s good, won’t you join us sometime…?”

Taken straight from the horse’s mouth, this group of fearless, out going, bra-burning women took full on advantage of the fact that it is one hundred percent legal to go topless in New York City, so long as you keep on your G-string. 

The group is literal to their title in every sense of the word, reading pulp fiction novels-while topless (and outdoors..). It’s members started “making women sexy” in mid August, braving it in city parks and public recreational facilities-as well as some pretty unique-spots as well.

With only fifteen participants taking advantage of the law, the group is striving to send a message to women who want to show the equality between men and women in the City. How cool is it to think of just how far we have come as a society, and women’s rights. The Man certainly wouldn’t have approved years ago.

 Please don’t mistake me—I’m not saying that every time I go to the NYC I want a mini peep show, but to be honest I have seen some man boobs that are pretty comparable, if not totally worse than (and maybe a little bit more offensive than) this. I’m sorry but it’s true. I think everyone has a moment when they think “Oh man, you should put a shirt on”- for that very reason.

Members of the group did an interview with the Village Voice that you can find here. These bodacious, trend-setting, brave babes are also on Twitter and you can find out where the group meets next (should you want to do a little in the buff reading) here.

Show of hands? Who is either going, would go if they could get there, or would think about doing this in their neck of the woods?
