Paris Week: Eight Questions for Heather Stimmler-Hall

This interview is from The Gypsy's Guide archives, and first appeared in December, 2008.   I was feeling a little naughty, though, and what's better than Heather's book about the naughty side of the City of Light as part of Paris Week?  Enjoy!

Heather Stimmler-Hall's book, Naughty Paris: a Lady's Guide to the Sexy City, debuted last fall and is a "specialty guidebook." Specialty guidebooks, sometimes called "secondary guidebooks," are those which focus on revealing a specific aspect of a place, in this case the erotic side of the City of Lights. The book's description reads, in part:"Sure, there are plenty of books out there for “romantic” Paris. While they will tell you where to buy stylish clothes and designer perfume, Naughty Paris direct you toward luscious leather corsets and the sauciest, silkiest French lingerie. They list the family-friendly restaurants. We list female-friendly bars. You'll discover sexy hotels where couples ignite their passion, not extinguish it beneath girlish chintz and doilies."

Heather was on tour with Naughty Paris and was kind enough to answer a few questions...
