We were all first-timers at some point. And it’s special, that first time you unbutton your shirt and slip your bra off…or untie your bikini top and let it slip down to your waist…and the world doesn’t come crashing to a halt. You feel the sun on your breasts, the breeze on your nipples, and people don’t stare or say anything, and you relax and ask yourself, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?” It’s a great moment of discovery, and one we love to share with women who’ve never experienced it before.

Today’s first-timers included one young woman who first contacted us five months ago, but wanted to wait for a particular auspicious moment to make her debut: her 18th birthday. That happy event took place last week, and today she was out with us, baring her breasts in the sun for the first time.

We also welcomed the identical twin sister of a participant who’d been with us before, which felt like an appropriate time to crack out the copies we’d received of Lawrence Block’s new “double” novel, featuring 69 BARROW STREET and STRANGE EMBRACE bound top-to-tail in a single volume.

Both of our outdoor topless pulp fiction virgins seemed delighted with the afternoon and plan to come back for more. What more could we ask…?

P.S. If you’re a virgin yourself and would like to join us, send a note to toplesspulpfiction[AT]gmail[DOT]com. We’d love to hear from you.
