A Year of Sex
tales from New York City's Erotic Underground
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.
"Adventurous, honest, perverted, erotic and at times, heartbreaking. Pick up this book and a Costco amount of tissues to go with it."
"Mia Martina is a gifted storyteller in audio, print, hieroglyph, and all other media. 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."
—Sara Benincasa, author of Agorafabulous!: Dispatches From My Bedroom
"Mia Martina's blatantly honest and risqué memoir 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."
—Abiola Abrams, author of The Official Bombshell Handbook
