A Year of Sex is the debut memoir from writer Mia Martina. After years of recording her sexcapades for her popular podcast "I Want Your Sex," Mia is excited to release her first book chronicling a year of her erotic adventures.
Mia Martina wasn't going to sit around waiting for love to find her when her relationship ended. Instead, she went after it - in New York City's erotic underground. Mia dove headfirst into the sex-party scene, swinging, spanking, and screwing her way out of heartbreak.
Follow her on an arousing and amusing journey as she tours the sex dens, women-only parties, and S & M dungeons that make up the city's sexual landscape. By spending a year as a self-identified slut, she learns more about herself - and love - than she could have imagined.
Her wild tale is utterly relatable to even the sexually uninitiated. While at times sultry and steamy, her adventures will have you thinking twice about what role love, sex, commitment, monogamy, kink, and sexual fulfillment play in our modern lives.
"Mia Martina boldly goes where no woman has gone before - or at least where few will admit to going. Her blatantly honest and risqué memoir 'A Year Of Sex' is a wild and adventurous romp through the seductive rabbit holes of the NYC sex party scene. One minute Mia is our personal guide as Alice then she becomes the story's Mad Hatter or Queen of Hearts. From heartbreak to three-ways, we're rooting for our heroine all the way. Mia gives readers the secret password to step behind the velvet rope with her -- and we don't even have to bring protection."
"Mia Martina is a gifted storyteller in audio, print, hieroglyph, and all other media. She was a fabulous guest on my Sirius XM sex chat show "Get in Bed," and she's a marvelous writer. Her stories will thrill you, turn you on, freak you out, and make you think differently about human relationships. At least, that's what her work has done for me. This dame is one brilliant blonde. Don't miss out on her wisdom."
"Adventurous, honest, perverted, erotic and at times, heartbreaking. Pick up this book and a Costco amount of tissues to go with it."
"Mia's book is well-written and delves into many of my favorite themes : New York City, sex, the sex/swinger party scene, love, and a happy ending all wrapped up in a true story. It's a memoir that's sexy (and sometimes erotic) with a dash of chick lit, a helping of date-dishing-at-Sunday-brunch, mixed with genuinely helpful advice and tips on things from open relationships to attending a sex party."
"And, if you're anything like me, try not to spend the next few weeks wishing you could go back to being 27, move to New York City and cram as much dating and sex into a year as you can."
"This book is honest. Mia is a woman who is exploring herself and indulging in all the roles of the flesh. This is the story of a woman exploring everything in an honest tell all book of what happened in a year of her sex life. She leaves out the boring details of life and just focuses on the sex."
