I found this information when visiting a friend of mine’s blog. Kathy Kulig had posted this and I found it so intriguing that I just had to reblog it! By the way Kathy is fantastic and she’s a very talented writer—do stop by and say, “Hi” to her.

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

Kathy attended this workshop last year and highly recommends it. She learned a lot and it greatly improved her writing skills in this genre. Her impression of Dr. Charley and her guest speakers were that they were warm, friendly and open throughout the workshop—eagerly answering tons of questions! The owners and patrons of the BDSM Club Paddles and the fetish shops that she visited were all wonderful and welcoming.

Kathy says—

“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!”

Do you 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.

Now if I can talk my husband into letting me attend this informative workshop.  Perhaps I’ll see if I can room with Kathy for next year’s workshop in 2014 so he’ll feel better. He’s already worried that I’ve become corrupt and that writing smut will morally impair my judgment. I keep telling him to have an open mind and let me use him for writing research 😉 Then he jokes and tells me that he’s going to chain me up in the basement but when I tell him to go ahead, he doesn’t really say anything… Ah well, a girl can dream! 😀

  1. Awe, thanks for your kind words, A.C. I did truly enjoy the workshop weekend. Awesome people. It’s the perfect, relaxed and safe place to do research for this genre. I’ll be going in 2014 and mostly likely will be doing a panel workshop.
