We love our animal companions as much as our human friends. More, sometimes. But we don’t often bring them with us to our events. Once, a puppy named Charlie made an appearance, but that was years ago and he hasn’t shown his little canine head since.

But with fall rearing its head, we made a visit to Sheep Meadow in Central Park, and this time one of our members brought her cat with her. And said cat was a hit with one and all.

We were even joined by a male partner at one point, and he helped, uh… Oh, fuck it: he helped take care of our pussy. There. We have the sense of humor of a ninth grader. Are you happy now?

It’s not like our cat was the only new member making a debut. Even this late in the season, a number of first-timers made this their inaugural event, some of them going topless in a public place for the first time ever…

…some full-time nudists and proud of it.

Happily, Sheep Meadow is one of the most tranquil, beautiful, charming spots in the entire city and embodies the live-and-let-live attitude we both benefit from and encourage.

So what if five or ten women are enjoying the afternoon without shirts on? Nothing noteworthy about that. Now, if one of them has tattoos that reference deep-cut Disney fare like The Emperor’s New Groove and Hercules

We had more than our share of interesting, beautiful ink this time, come to think of it.

But even that didn’t draw stares in particular. And the lack of stares or comment helped make the afternoon deeply satisfying. As did the bonding among our little troupe. There’s something about being naked together that just turns strangers into family.

Improbably, with the summer just a memory, it’s still warm out. Probably not for much longer — it’s October this week, for heaven’s sake. But this Wednesday, the temperature is supposed to reach almost 90 degrees. So we’re planning to hold at least one more outdoor event, and as you can see, we welcome first-timers, no matter how late in the year. Would you like to join us? Just email toplesspulpfiction@gmail.com or message us on Insta (@topless_pulp) or Twitter (@ToplessPulp).

You’re welcome to bring your cat, your dog, your bird, your ferret, your chinchilla, your bearded dragon.

And if you don’t have one, just bring your pussy.
