(CHICAGO) These Girls are Cookin’!

NGR-cooking-fanfueled

Since Naked Girls Reading is OUR fantasy, we feel it’s our responsibility to also fulfill many of YOUR fantasies.  Last year, when Chicago debuted “HOT DISHES” – a Naked Girls Reading Cooking event – we got such a great response from all of you who have dreamed and fantasized about lovely ladies cooking delicious treats without any clothes on (the girls, not the treats).

That’s why we’re doing it again!  Yay!

Join us on June 28th in Chicago as the girls read from great culinary anecdotes.  They’ll also be cooking some fun bites for you to enjoy – all included in the ticket price.  Don’t miss the words of Anthony Bourdain as read by a naked Greta Layne, or Michelle L’amour doing her best Julia Childs impersonating, all while downing sweet and savory dishes cooked up by the girls themselves.  For a sneak peek – watch the video

June 28th at the Everleigh Social Club

Doors open at 6:30pm. Show starts promptly at 7pm. BYOB.

Climb Mount Olympus with us!

Some people say lovely ladies who read naked in public is too good to be true…that it’s a myth!  We assure you, it is not.  But for the first time in Chicago history, we are taking our clothes off and taking on Mythology for a night you will not soon forget.

The gods will surely smile as we regale you with tales of debauchery, mayhem and a little morality.

Know Your Naked Girls – Michelle L’amour

In 2009, a bevy of beautiful ladies in Chicago decided to take a chance on a little event they called Naked Girls Reading.  Response was immediately positive and chapters began springing up in other cities.  To celebrate Naked Girls Reading’s Four Year Anniversary, we’ve decided to launch a new monthly series called “Know Your Naked Girls”.  This gives you a chance to know a little more about the ladies who doff their clothing and read to you on a regular basis.  Plus it’s an excuse to publish more sexy pictures, videos, etc! It’s kind of like a Naked Girls Reading centerfold – without the staples.

First up, we get to know the founder of Naked Girls Reading, Michelle L’amour.

IMG_1341What are you currently reading?  Then Again by Diane Keaton
What is your favorite book? Why? I don’t have a favorite book.  There is just too many to choose from and I’m too moody for favorites.
What is your least favorite book? Why? The Fermata by Nicholas Baker.  I wanted to throw this book across the room many times.  We read it for a book club and I just wanted to finish it to see if there was any sort of redemption, but there wasn’t.  It’s about a guy who discovers he can stop time.  Basically, it’s a new way for him to fuck girls and not have them know about it.  Not into it.
How long have you been reading naked? Professionally, 4 years.  Personally…I don’t remember.  Probably started in college.  Naked study time.
What is it about reading naked that appeals to you? None of those pesky clothes get in the way of the page turn.
What are the best/worst things about reading naked in public? I still get nervous.  I do.  I’ve been doing burlesque for 10 years and reading publicly for 4.  Being naked is not the hard part, it’s the reading.   I think some people who come want to automatically dismiss you because you are naked.  You can’t be naked AND intelligent.  So, there’s a little pressure to not sound like an idiot when you’re reading.  Plus, you just want the audience to like your selection as much as you do.  It’s such a vulnerable position.  You are baring your body and your soul.  It makes for a very intimate atmosphere.  I believe that in itself is the best and worst thing about reading naked in public.
Tell me about your best naked reading experience? Again, there are too many.  I have cried while reading on stage because I was too moved by the reading.  Let me tell you, I am not getting into the ‘Naked Girls Crying’ game.  You feel your voice start to shake and your heart beats faster.  You start to sweat and your breath catches, and then that first tear hits your naked breast and it’s all over.  Oh man.  I’m a sap.


I think one of the best and most ridiculous times I’ve had reading is when we all dressed as ‘KISS’ for Naked Girls ROCK.  I was ‘The Demon’.  Who knew that was the perfect role for me!  I seriously, loved it!  Before then, I don’t think I really understood the makeup, but once you’re in it and you’re naked, it’s kind of awesome.  Especially, when you don’t take your makeup off and you’re driving home and people in the car next to you freak out.  I also think it’s just super fun to be a naked lady ‘dressed’ as a boy.  Along with ‘The Demon’, I’ve been Charlie Chaplin (with a mustache on top and bottom), Zorro (guess where the ‘Z’ was) and Slash from Guns ‘n’ Roses.

Oh, and I should tell you about my tan lines.  That was a ‘costume’ for me one year for Naked Ghouls Reading.  I am NEVER tan and I never have tan lines.  So, I just thought it would be hilarious if that was my costume, just tan lines.  I taped off a tiny bikini with electrical tape and then used the Pantyhose in a Bottle to dye my skin.  Let it set, then took off the tape.  Voila! Tan lines!
Why Naked Girls Reading? Why not?
What advice do you have for someone who wants to read naked? Get a book. Take off your clothes. Read.

If you are doing it publicly, you must present yourself.  Sit up straight, speak with authority and wear some fabulous heels.
