At bachelorette parties hosted by The Artful Bachelorette, you’ll see a naked man — but he’s not there to dance. He’s there to be drawn.
The New York City-based Artful Bachelorette hosts nude life-drawing classes for brides (and occasionally grooms)-to-be, offering a unique, sexy party experience. Partygoers enjoy drinks served by a topless waiter and a two-hour life-drawing class, featuring a naked male model as the subject. Parties can be held in private residences or in one the company’s rented event spaces, and every guest leaves with new artistic skills.
HuffPost Weddings spoke with Artful Bachelorette co-owner Samara Hodgson (her business partner is artist Fleur Childs) and one of the company’s regular models, Kurt McVey, about the inspiration for the business and what it’s like hosting an Artful bachelorette party.
