Naked girls reading. Or, girls reading naked.
No matter how you describe its participants, Naked Girls Reading is drawing the attention of literary types across North America who enjoy a good book read by a woman sans clothing.
The Naked Girls website describes the concept simply as "a group of beautiful ladies who love to read-naked. That's really it. There's not a whole lot more to it. Should there be?"
Sounds pretty straightforward to me.
The Vancouver troupe of Naked Girls Reading hosts its next event, dubbed The Royal Canadian Bare Farce, Jan. 15 from 7: 30 to 10: 30 p.m. at the Backstage Lounge on Granville Island. Join burlesque beauties Trixie Hobbitses, Bunny Meugens, Sherry Hymen and Diamond Minx for a night of "earnestly being earnest" and "general Tartuffery," as the women read farce. And did I mention they're naked? For more information, visit nakedgirlsreading.com/vancouver. No photos allowed.
