This week, Current readers were all about taking it off. By that, we mean our two most-read stories involved places where little clothing is required: strip clubs and water parks.

The story getting the top number of views detailed a new Texas law requiring strip club workers and patrons alike to be 21 years of age, a move proponents said would make it easier for thwart child sex trafficking.



Meanwhile, the runner up was about Slide the Slopes, a three-mile complex of inflatable water slides that will be setting up near San Antonio for part of the summer. We're sure plenty of you would love to check it out if Mother Nature ever stops dumping rain on us.

Clothing is optional as you peruse the rest of our most-read stories below:
