An Aggregated Reading List

Here in London, where Naked Boys Reading began, we’re ALREADY bored of washing our hands 10000x a day, and our premium PornHub subscription feels LACKING in textuality. The Covid-19 Emergency has meant that we have to rethink modes of sociality and offer other means of connection (we aren’t up for this “social distancing” rhetoric!).

We have decided to aggregate a list of Top 5 Things to Read While Naked and Isolated.

We’ve asked our friends, lovers, and enemies to offer a top 5 that might ease you through your self-isolation.

The engagement requirements are simple:

  1. Pick a text (order it and support literary economy),
  2. Get naked (you’re alone, go on!),
  3. Read (that’s an order, Nerd).
