The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober. There are no dues or fees for SA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Sexaholics Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sexually sober and help other sexaholics to achieve sobriety.

Below is an excerpt from John’s story ‘Lust was my problem’
Age 11, I started wearing my sisters tights during masturbation, which added to the thrill. By 17, I was compulsively stealing or secretly ‘borrowing’ women’s underwear at any opportunity, despite very real risks of being caught. I didn’t realise I was already out of control.
At age 19, after a great deal of difficulty I finally lost my virginity. Sex with real women reduced but never eliminated my crossdressing. I didn’t realise that all my relationships were lust based, and unreal. They were all short lived.
[many years later] A friend one day gave me the book ‘Sexaholics Anonymous’. I immediately identified with the concept that lust was my problem. I had always thought that if only I could stop crossdressing I would be ‘OK”. Reading the book helped me to see that ALL my sexual behaviour was lust based and I was a true lust addict, a sexaholic, and love cripple.
