A transgender woman who spent $ 150,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like a Bratz doll, talked about how she fell in the grip of a sex addiction.
Jolene Dawson, from Queensland, started making innocent YouTube videos about her & # 39; tricky appointments & # 39; so she could laugh with her friends.
But the 24-year-old – who changed from male to female at the age of 19 – said the & # 39; busy & # 39; for & # 39; new and interesting sex stories & # 39; to find her channel quickly escalated.
While having sex up to ten times in one day, the self-confident sex addict revealed how she slept with about 90 men within six months.
Jolene – who was born a man but now identifies herself as a woman – spoke exclusively with Daily Mail Australia and told how her pursuit of frequent appointments led her to turn her life around to become celibate.

When she started creating content for her YouTube channel, Jolene, she became fixated on the & # 39; constant confirmation & # 39; from her viewers.
& # 39; That led me to become a sex addict & # 39 ;, she told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; I started to feel the pressure to have more stories, so I started looking for new interesting sex stories for my channel. I thought more sex meant more storytimes, which meant more money and more followers.
& # 39; After about three months I sometimes had sex ten times a day and it was no longer about creating content, it was about having a lot of sex.
& # 39; It started to affect my work, I wouldn't go to work at all, so I could have sex. & # 39;

Jolene said she no longer had any money because she spent most of her time on sex instead of working
Jolene said she no longer had any money because she no longer worked.
& # 39; I didn't work, but I couldn't stop. I would have sex with at least four men a night, & she said.
& # 39; But while I lived like this, I felt more lonely than ever, I felt that sex was spinning around the world and I treated myself like a commodity.
Despite having safe sex with everyone, Jolene said her turning point came after she started fearing sexually transmitted diseases.
& # 39; I just thought "is this worth it?" I absolutely must stop … The turning point for me was the crippling fear I had for STDs, "she said.
& # 39; Although I did everything to prevent STDs, I was still worried, but luckily I never contracted anything. However, it was still a dangerous game to play. & # 39;
For now, Jolene said she focuses on creating new YouTube content about her life

After settling with a friend, Jolene – who runs her own online merchandise store – swore to celibacy after a six-month addiction.
& # 39; It was my breaking point, & # 39; she said.
After she changed her life about two months ago, Jolene said she is now in a happier place.
& # 39; I have been celibate for two months now and am happy to say that I have started making YouTube videos again that are not about my sex life, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; They don't get that many views, but I enjoy it again. I wish our society wasn't so obsessed with sex, but I'm glad I can grow and learn from this.
& # 39; Now that I am financially stable again, I have decided to donate $ 5,000 to a local sexual health clinic. & # 39;

Jolene made the first headlines in early 2017 after revealing that she had spent tens of thousands of dollars on procedures to look like a Bratz doll
Jolene made the first headlines in early 2017 after revealing that she had spent tens of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery to look like a Bratz doll.
She underwent multiple procedures, including breast augmentation, forehead fillers, losing the jaw and removing her navel so that she & # 39; less human & # 39; could be.
However, Jolene confirms that she & # 39; is no longer looking for a Bratz doll & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I think that journey really contributed to my own self-sexualization and was just as damaging to how I see myself as the sex addiction & # 39 ;, she told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; I spent about $ 150,000 on plastic surgery to look like a Bratz doll and another $ 60,000 on undoing the work that was unnecessary.
& # 39; While I was in LA earlier this year, I spoke to a surgeon who advised that I should leave my face alone, so I will. & # 39;
For now, Jolene said she focuses on creating new YouTube content about her life.
& # 39; I usually concentrate solely on creating new content that is not so sex-focused & # 39 ;, she said.
By sharing her story, Jolene said she wanted to break the stigma – and be the voice for those who are ashamed to talk about their sex addiction.
