Most certainly, all of us have curled up with a good book whilst in the buff, but only a self-selected few would deign to do so in public. Luckily for us shy types, some daring divas are dying to share a taste of their favorite literature — and nothing else! Launched in Chicago in 2009, Naked Girls Reading is as simple as its premise: Performers take the stage adorned only with the prose of their choice. Heavyweights in the San Antonio burlesque scene, Jasper St. James and Vixy Van Hellen have launched a local chapter of Naked Girls Reading, which premieres with an August 11 event at the Sexology Institute. The readers and their selections are currently under wraps, but all will be bared when the ladies take the stage. In case it needs to be said: This event is for ages 18 and up only.
