This, Friday, April 10th, we will be celebrating 11 years of reading in the buff. And it just so happens to be Good Friday, but we’re determined to make it a great one!
Due to our current circumstances, Bare Book Club will be presenting this celebration online. We are putting together videos of the cast reading in their homes and I will read and host from my home. This show isn’t held by the constraints of time since it isn’t a live stream. So if you can’t watch it when we release it, you can always come back to it. Those of you that have tickets will receive a password protected video to view the show. If you want to celebrate with us, you can purchase a ticket here. Again, this will not be a public show. It’s for YOUR EYES ONLY!
We hope that we can bring you a bit of light in this dark time. Be well.
Join me in Chicago on September 6th for the 10th annual, ‘So You Wanna be a Naked Girl‘! This event features women who are reading naked in front of an audience for the very first time. I absolutely adore them for stepping into their vulnerability and coming together in a safe and supportive space. Now, the show is set up as a faux reality show (like So You Think You Can Dance). The readers choose their passage from any genre and the selections are required to be under 8 minutes. When all the readers have finished, the audience gets to vote for Naked Reader 2019! This is not a serious competition and there is not a massive prize package, but it is FUN!
Come and support these brave, beautiful women! Please keep in mind that we are at a new location: 3100 N California. Get your Tickets now!

Naked Girls Reading hits Hollywood on April 25 with Athena Fatale, Kristina Nekiya and me! The show is exactly as it sounds. Think of the literary salons in Paris, but naked…and in Los Angeles! We’ll be at the Burgundy Room Gallery (1621 N Cahuenga) at 8:30 reading the very best of Oscar Wilde. Get your tickets now!
Then on April 28th in LA, I’ll be teaching my class Pussy Confidence at Fit and Bendy, 12:30-2.
Women are taught from a very young age to give up their space, to apologize for their presence, and to appease those around them. We are taught that we are weak and ‘less than’. But, certainly, we are not. We are greater than or equal to. It is time to take back your power and own what is rightfully yours. It is time to embrace the things that make you vulnerable and use them as your strengths. In Pussy Confidence, we will learn to accept and love the things that make us different. We will learn to love the things that make us ‘woman’. The class will feature a talk from Michelle L’amour, sensual movement, and a bit of choreography that encourages you to move from your sex. Let’s be done with compartmentalizing our bodies and our minds. Let’s imagine and embrace the power of our whole being working as one. This is Pussy Confidence!
Please wear clothes you feel comfortable in. Do not dress for others. Dress for yourself. Heels are optional. Bring a notebook as well if you wish.
You can read more about this class in this recent Playboy article.
And, if you’re in Chicago, I’ll be teaching this workshop on May 18th. More details to follow.
Thank you for your continued love and support! My instagram account is now back up and running. I appreciate all your help. Remember, if you want to see all of my work, you can always join the fan club!
