Yoga by Candlelight

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_6531For our second annual private lesson with the incomparable Willow of Naked In Motion (purveyors of nude yoga to New York, Boston, and Parts Unknown), we decided to turn the lights down low and practice our asanas to the illumination of a dozen flickering candles.

IMG_6516IMG_6513cIMG_6524This was a boon for the room’s tranquility; less so for the event’s photography. (We did try taking a photo or two with the flash turned on, but that shattered the serenity and we quickly turned it off again. The only bright sparks we displayed from then on were the divine internal variety. Namaste.)

IMG_6508This lesson combined yoga and a bit of pilates, with some extra attention given to pelvic floor muscles and other areas of interest to participants.

IMG_6533IMG_6532After the lesson, we found repose in child’s pose…

IMG_6514…as well as strawberries and Oreos. Ancient, meet modern.

The Drawing Room

Gorgeus

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_5567In midtown Manhattan there’s a townhouse dating back to 1875 that’s home to the Society of Illustrators, an organization honoring some of the finest artwork created in the past century. Walk the halls and you’ll see original art by painters such as Norman Rockwell and Robert McGinnis — even a giant portrait of Olivia by Ian Falconer. And if you’d walked to their fourth-floor library one day this past week, you’d have seen us there too, practicing our figure drawing, and our figure modeling, under the guidance of award-winning painter Gregory Manchess.

IMG_5384IMG_5410It was an extraordinary experience, first just absorbing the atmosphere and history of this unique institution and then getting to watch one of the best illustrators in the world create breathtaking portraits of us in seconds, working with nothing more than some newsprint, charcoal and pencils.

Going to Sing Sing

Great

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_5057…no, not the prison. We may be getting a bit stir-crazy, cooped up indoors while we wait out the cold weather, but not crazy enough to actually go to stir. (Not a place for a topless adventure, that.)

IMG_4718Sing Sing on Avenue A in New York is the city’s diviest karaoke bar, and we mean that as a compliment. You can keep your chromed-up, K-pop suffused, midtown glitzerias — we’ll take a grotty basement with a gold disco ball, thank you very much. Couches that look like Sid and Nancy shot up on them. Cinderblock walls, thickly painted and never cleaned. A place where even the shadows cast shadows.

IMG_4647Into this veritable Mos Eisley we brought a group of 20 eager chanteuses, including two ringers with serious singing credentials; a sackful of baked goods courtesy of Dominique Ansel and Frederic Vaucamps; enough alcohol to drown the butterflies in anyone’s…

Year In Review, 2017

Wonderful

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

And so we come to the end of another year — another wonderful, awful year. Awful in so many dimensions: geopolitical, economic, ecological, human rights, basic civility. And yet. And yet, we spent the year with friends and loved ones, and we exercised our freedoms together, and we treated others and were treated ourselves with respect. In this milestone year when we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the court decision establishing that women in New York have the same right as men to go topless, we went topless enthusiastically and without incident, all over this great city of ours. It was fun, it was refreshing, it was healthy, and it was legal.

And you — you came to our blog from virtually every country on the face of the globe and you witnessed our liberty and shared in our adventures. What follows is a distillation of the year’s events, based…

Warming Up at the Spa

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_2873Each winter, when it’s too cold outdoors for going topless, we round up our gang and head to our favorite spa for an evening of fun in the sauna, steam room, and lemon-filled soaking tubs.

IMG_2895IMG_2894Usually we wait until December, but this year we couldn’t because the spa is about to undergo extensive renovations — so we had to get in before the wrecking ball came.

It was hardly a hardship. Warm as September and October were this year, November has been, as people used to say, as cold as a witch’s tit. (Why did they say this, we wonder. Would witches have abnormally cold tits? We count some practicing witches among our membership, and haven’t noticed any particular mammary hypothermia.) In any event, it’s been cold, and the warmth of the spa was welcome indeed.

IMG_2889As was the excellent company. Twenty-one of us showed up, ranging from old friends…

Flashing Back

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_2475It’s not precisely freezing in New York City yet — it’s at least 33 degrees — but it’s certainly too cold to stroll topless through Central Park, or to lie naked on a rooftop sundeck. So how have we been spending our time instead? Finally getting around to tidying up this website, which had become a bit unwieldy, with more than 250 posts on a single long home page.

Oh, the home page is still there, for anyone who really likes scrolling through a thousand photos (and then some!), but we have also categorized every post (which ones take place at a pool? near a bridge? in the rain?), and also organized them by year. So if you want to browse by date or subject matter, you’ll find handy links now at the top of the screen.

To celebrate this new organization, we thought we’d flash back to some memorable…
