In a little over a week I’m headed to New York City for a writer’s workshop. I write erotic romance and when Dr. Charley Ferrer announced she was going to present a BDSM for Writers workshop, based on her book – I was all over it. I’m so excited to meet Dr. Charley and to get an opportunity to research BDSM for my writing. Dr. Charley is a Clinical Sexologist & Therapist and a radio talk show host too.
I’ve never been to New York before. I’m planning to go out a day early and stay an extra day to do even more research. There’s a Museum of Sex in New York. Did you know that? I didn’t until I watched an episode of Millionaire Matchmaker and one guy took a lady there for a date. I MUST see this museum. Not only does it sound like a lot of fun, but it’s research. Perfect. Grin…
I’ll be staying at a hotel in midtown just blocks from Central Park. Central Park will be gorgeous and it should be within walking distance of my hotel. There are so many things I want to see and do while I’m in New York. Of course, one of the coolest parts of the workshop will be opportunities to visit leather shops and other adult sorts of stores. We’re even scheduled to visit a BDSM club with our most excellent instructor.
But I plan to take in some “tourist” sites while I’m there too, like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. I’m feeling overwhelmed by all the possibilities though. I should take a trip on the subway. Experience a cab ride and maybe even a horse drawn carriage ride around Central Park. Are there any “research” sites or tourist places I should make sure to visit? I’m looking for suggestions. If you were headed for New York City, where would you want to go?
