Naked Girls Reading: XOXOX Valentine's Edition

When: Fri., Feb. 9, 8 p.m. 2018

As the story goes, 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 (the cast of which features members of the Pastie Pops, Stars and Garters Burlesque and other familiar performers) upholds the groups mantra (“You can’t spell literature without T and A”) this month with a Valentine’s-themed reading of “favorite pieces about love and lust.”

Price: $15 per person, $25 per couple
