[NSFW] The Majesty of NYC’s Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

topless 5Mind.  Blown.

There is so much awesomeness associated with the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society (aka “these wonderful ladies” for the sake of this post) that it’s almost unfair to try using words to describe the awesomeness of what they’re doing.

That’s why we grabbed a bunch of pictures and posted them for your amazement.

Boobies!  I’m giddy.  This exists.  This is real.  This is 2013.  If this is the end product of feminism, give us heap loads more of this.

According to their WordPress site, located at coedtoplesspulpfiction.wordpress.com (which also includes loads of pictures from their get togethers), these wonderful ladies are just a group of friends who enjoy reading books without their tops on thanks to New York City law that allows both men and women to be topless.

I’m officially filling my closet with I &heart; NY shirts, while humming God Bless America over and over again.

And this isn’t just about the boobs, these ladies have ridiculously awesome taste in literature.  Check out their Pulp Fiction reading list, along with a post that outlines an encounter with one of my favorite authors Elmore “Dutch” Leonard.

Smart, well read, often tattooed, and beautiful girls sharing their amazing bodies with the rest of the world in organized groups while reading great books?  This could be love.

I sent some questions about the group to Alethea Andrews, who is involved with the group (possibly their organizer?), even though I really wanted to send a love letter.  But that would be highly inappropriate and unprofessional, even though that is the DudeShit way, we wanted to try being as respectful as possible.

Join the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society Facebook Group and show the lovely ladies some love and appreciation of their courage and awesomeness.

topless 1This isn’t necessarily a question, but we really, really support what you’re doing. Yes, coming from us it’s probably creepy and a bit douchey, but in the long run we all benefit, right?

We think so. Women being proud of their bodies and having the same freedom men have to cover or uncover them can only be a good thing. The idea that women’s bodies are either shameful and smutty or delicate and in need of protection is insulting, both to women and to men (who by this reasoning have so little self control that the merest glimpse of a nipple can throw them into an uncontrollable frenzy). We all have nipples; most of us fed from nipples for the first year of our lives. In other parts of the world no one thinks anything of a woman going bare-breasted on a beach or in a park. Why should we?

What was the motivation behind starting the Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society? I know if we started it we’d be appreciating topless woman more than appreciating pulp fiction, but “men are from Mars…” and all that.

For 20 years, women in New York have had the legal right to go bare-breasted anywhere a man can. But having a right and exercising that right are two different things. You almost never see women taking advantage of this freedom, and it’s not because when it’s 90 degrees out we wouldn’t want to. It’ s because one woman, by herself, wouldn’t want to deal with the looks and comments (or worse) she might be subjected to. But a group of women doing it together would have a different experience. At least that was our thinking, and it has turned out to be true. We made our group a book club because all our founding members happened to be book lovers, and we also thought having books in our hands would give us a useful prop for discouraging creepy guys from coming over to talk to us.

topless 6We noticed that this is a Co-Ed appreciation society, but we didn’t see any pictures of any guys at the meetups? Do you think it’s because any dude that shows up is either going to be labeled a perv, or we’re just less brave to show our man boobies than you lovely ladies are to show your lady boobies?

We’ve had at least one guy at every one of our events, sometimes two or three, but we do deliberately keep the male presence small, since this is basically a women’s issue and having the group be mainly women tends to make the women in the group feel more comfortable. The guys don’t turn up in our photos much, either at their request or just because they tend to stay on the periphery of the group. But if you look through our blog you will find some. (Consider that a warning, if you don’t like seeing peen. Some of our events are bottomless too.)

Rank your Top 5 favorite Pulp Fiction authors.

It’s tough to narrow it down to five, but here’s a stab at it: Raymond Chandler, Elmore Leonard, Lawrence Block, Cornell Woolrich, Edgar Rice Burroughs. And for good measure, I’ll mention our favorite modern pulp publisher: Hard Case Crime (www.hardcasecrime.com).

Who is your most well read member? And who gets ogled the most when you’re laying out reading and enjoying the sun? For some reason, in my head, it should be the same person.

topless 7We do attract the occasional ogler, but it’s a little hard to tell who they’re ogling. We’re all lying there in a tight little pack, so a glance in our direction could be directed at any of us.

As for who’s the most well-read, I’m not even sure what that really means. Who’s read the most books? Who’s read the hardest ones? The most serious and acclaimed? The group’s two co-founders are pretty serious lit geeks, so it might be one of them. But we’ve also had some recent first-timers who really know their stuff. That said, if you’d like to imagine that our biggest brain has also got the biggest tits, feel free. It’s nice to know you’re fantasizing about the former too.
