The Sexaholics Anonymous Purpose

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 an SA member’s story entitled ‘Something was wrong’
At a very young age, I felt alienated from my parents. I couldn’t express my emotions. I masked my emotional longings with weird sexual fantasies of torture. In my teens, I was obsessed by looking at girls and then fantasizing, masturbation, exposing myself, looking into windows to see if I could get a glimpse of something sexual. Even when I became a Christian, I could only stop masturbating for a year. I used to look through friends’ shelves for erotic material, raid fellow lodgers’ rooms for underwear, and look at worse and worse forms of pornography online. I tried to groom a 15 year old I lived with. I tried to give up again and again, and couldn’t. In the end I just felt appalling. I went to see my pastor who was very sympathetic. We met once a month for a year and I was free of pornography. But I couldn’t keep to the sexual boundaries I set with my girlfriend, and I realized something was wrong. I went to my first SA meeting.
