BDSM in NY City 3-Day Intensive Workshop Weekend



If you have interest in the BDSM lifestyle and/or interest in writing in this popular genre with accuracy, in all aspects, this is the workshop for you.

I attended this workshop last year and can highly recommend it. I learned so much and I believe it greatly improved my writing skills in this genre. Dr. Charley and her guest speakers were warm, friendly and open throughout the workshop. They were eager to answer tons of questions! And boy did I have a lot. They were very patient with me. The owners and patrons of the BDSM Club Paddles and the fetish shops we visited were all wonderful and welcoming. I felt comfortable and quickly put at ease. It was fun and I met a number a great people. Yes, at first I was a little nervous. I had never been to a BDSM club before. I thought I would stand out as an outsider, intruding on their private world and snubbed, but that wasn't the case at all. I would love to go back.

With everything I learned, and the inspiration derived from the experience, I’ve written a number of BDSM related stories that are out on submission right now! And I have a number of stories I’m working on. I’ll be announcing good news as it comes in. Fingers crossed!

Want to have a better understanding of the emotional and psychological connections between people engaged in this highly erotic and often misunderstood lifestyle? This is the perfect workshop. I’m disappointed that I can’t return this year, but I hope to make it in 2014. Dr. Charley is planning even more.

I can vouch for the tons of information and inspiration received at last year's workshop. In fact, I'm returning this year for more! The instructors are at the top of their game.

I have to agree with you Cris. I wish I was going again this year. I stayed up until midnight last night to get my vacation request in for 2014. This has to be the best workshop out there for learning about this genre.

That would be a most informative workshop.

I'm reblogging this on Monday next week ;) Now if I can talk my husband into letting me go. Maybe I'll just go with you next year so he doesn’t worry so much. He's always asking me where all this smut writing is going... Ugh. Sometimes for a college educated Anthropology major he surprises me with his lack of open mindedness. It was like pulling teeth to get my way with having a midwife and home water birth for our last child. But I told him it was my body and forced him to watch the Business of Being Born documentary until he finally caved. Eventually, I always get my way. So it would be a lot easier if he recognized that and we skipped the unnecessary step of arguing about it :D
