The concept for the naughty literary series Naked Girls Reading came about when Chicago-based Frankie Vivid returned home to find his wife, burlesque performer Michelle L’Amour, reading a book in the buff. Delivering precisely what its title suggests — “a small cast of beautiful ladies removes their clothing (yes, all of it) and reads personal selections to an adoring audience” — the playful series has spread to more than 20 cities (from Warsaw to Washington D.C.), with the Chicago flagship often stripping down for readings themed around topics ranging from banned books to bad romance. Active since the summer of 2017, the San Antonio chapter upholds the groups’ mantra (“You can’t spell literature without T and A”) this month with “A Very Naked Holiday.”

Hosted by Pastie Pops burlesque ringleader Jasper St. James, the irreverent holiday offering puts a revealing spin on How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and other yuletide fare via readings by Vixy Van Hellen (“the bare bottom of Bexar County”), “contemporary tease” Elle Du Jour, “living doll” Mary Annette and “Transoceanic tropical tease” Black Orchid.



“It’s a cool date night experience,” explained St. James, who provides comedic interludes by reading “Missed Connections” culled from Craigslist. Amusingly, the BYOB affair culminates in a nude group reading of A Christmas Carol.

$15 per person, $25 per couple, Sat Dec. 15, 8-9:30pm, Sexology Institute, 707 S. St. Mary’s St., (210) 487-0371, sexologyinstitute.com.
