("Kiss and Tell" chronicles the history of sex surveys in ...)1999
"I became interested in sexual behavior surveys, when I read in the "Chronicle of Higher Education", that the federal government had decided to withhold funding from a large national survey of sexual behavior. Since this survey had been designed to see if Americans were engaging in the kinds of risky sexual practices, which could lead to a widespread AIDS epidemic, I wanted to understand, why it was still so difficult to talk about sex. This took me through a fascinating journey, involving political figures, researchers and the discovery of about seven-hundred-fifty surveys of sexual behavior, taken over a hundred-year period."
"I write because I think I have something to say. The history of sexual behavior surveys is complex. These surveys show us the changing anxieties of Americans over a century. I believe I have the ability to make complex issues clear and accessible, and that in doing so I am making a contribution."
"When I write, I complete my first draft quickly. It is important to me to get a version of what I want to say down, even if it is flawed. At this stage I do not worry about finding the right word or phrase. I then read the material carefully and do rough editing. I then reorganize and return to the editing again. I rewrite many times."
Julia is a member of the International Academy of Sex Research, American Sociological Association and Population Association of America.
Julia married Eugene Pennell Ericksen on April 7, 1966. Their marriage produced three children - Polly Joanna, Andrew Robert and Monica Amanda Jane.
