Every woman has a story. But not every woman will tell it. Memoirs of a Wannabe Sex Addict is a brutally honest and fearless retelling of one girl's sex-capades. Each short story is a vignette taken from her life - the ups, the downs, and everything in between. In a search for belonging and purpose, she explores men and women, submission and dominance, prostitution and commitment. But what will she find? As "The Slave" she learns that she is afraid to love or be loved. As "The Addict" she finds power in impressing her pimp by having sex for money. As "The Foreigner," she discovers that fantasies are best sought after on the other side of the world. And one-by-one, each experience forces this girl to grow up. Julia Morizawa exposes an arousing world of sex intertwined with the vulnerable and complex emotions that often come with it. This is a must-read for any woman who has searched for herself by using, and abusing, her body. And for anyone who has emerged from the other side, having found so much more. . . . When he said that, I couldn't help but turn onto my side and face him. I couldn't help but feel a sudden rush of passion flow through my body. He turned toward me as well and wrapped his arm around my waist. He slowly rubbed his warm hand up and down my back, first over my shirt, then under it. When he kissed me, it was as if all the warmth in his body had been passed over into mine. I wrapped my palm around the back of his neck to pull him in closer, to kiss him harder. His tongue felt like warm silk in my mouth. When he moved it around and under mine, it was done perfectly, as if we had choreographed the movements ahead of time. He caressed my stomach with his hand, making my muscles tense up . . .

Author Interview with Julia Morizawa
How much of the book is true?
As I once heard a colleague reply to a similar question, "Not one bit and every word." Everything I write is based on the truth of my own life experiences in some way or another. I personally believe that art is most beautiful when it does, in fact, imitate life. For me, the honesty and voice in a narrative is what connects me to it the most. However, it is the search for truth that inspires me. Once it is found, the journey is over and I am often disappointed. Therefore, in the interest of my readers, I choose not to reveal how much of the book is true. Some of it is, and some of it isn't. And as long as the reader is moved, inspired and connected, it really doesn't matter.
What inspired you to write this book?
In the beginning, I began writing for purely selfish reasons. I found great comfort and therapy in documenting my life experiences by intermixing them with dramatic fiction. But as I matured and reached out to new people, I discovered that my story is not all that unique. I have encountered many individuals, particularly women, who have lived through similar experiences. Some of them continue to struggle emotionally with the scars of their past. I decided to publish this book for others to read in order to help these individuals realize that they are not alone. That the struggles of their past make them who they are today - for the better.
How long has this book been in the making?
I wrote my first erotic story, "The Slave," in the summer of 2005 while in the midst of an attempt to runaway from my life. I dabbled in it periodically for the next couple of years, but did not complete anything new again until early 2007. As you might imagine, a lot had happened to me in those two years. Then throughout 2009, I completed the second half of the book. "The Girlfriend" served as my final story. The stories in the book are presented in chronological order so that the growth and transformation of the narrator is evident from start to finish.
What is the significance of the titles of the stories?
Having first-hand experience in psychological disorders, the titles of the stories serve as a sort of "dedication" to those of us with mental health issues. I proudly describe the narrator as having multiple personalities, though this may not be medically accurate. They are meant to be self-given titles or personalities of the narrator during each phase in her life. They are how she would describe herself in that moment.
Memoirs of a Wannabe Sex Addict is Julia Morizawa's debut collection of erotica. Her short erotic story, "The Slave," was originally published online by Sliptongue, then again in the eighth volume of Maxim Jakubowski's The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica. Julia's past writing credits include Twenty-Two, a one-act play, which premiered in January, 2010 at the Knightsbridge Theatre in Los Angeles; and Sin & Lyle, a short film, which hit the festival circuit in 2007 and earned her a Best Female Filmmaker nomination at the Action On Film Festival in Long Beach, CA. Julia also produced and performed in both of these projects, as she is primarily an actor, and has been in LA long enough to know that if she wants to play a certain role, she has to write it for herself. Projects in development include a feature-length screenplay about the lives of a rebellious Japanese-American man and a traditional Japanese woman in the mid-twentieth century, and the events that turn them into a classic love story.
