NY women go topless for 'pulp fiction' reading group

New York, May 11 : A small group of young women in New York are reading pulp crime novels and other works in city parks while topless.

Since going topless in New York is legal, the Topless Pulp Fiction Club's founder A.A. said that she and her friend decided to start a group to take advantage of the legal rights they already had but weren't using, the New York Daily News reported.

The club is a celebration of a woman's freedom to bare her breasts and read a book at the same time - a reminder that not all nudity has to be salacious or even sexual, she said.

Group members mainly read lurid, midcentury "pulp" novels, but some have tucked into classics by authors like Steinbeck and Faulkner.

A.A. said the group wanted to enjoy the same freedom as men who freely lounge in city parks without shirts on whether they be pale, flabby, hirsute or tattooed.
