SAA Newsletter

The Outer Circle

“We share our experience with each other, which reminds us that we have a common illness and that we are not alone. By sharing our stories, we remind ourselves of our progress in recovery, and we give each other hope.”

Sex Addicts Anonymous, p. 12

The SAA newsletter, The Outer Circle, is published bi-monthly by the International Service Organization (ISO) of SAA. It is available without cost by download from this website or by request in writing to

The newsletter contains original articles and poetry about sex addiction written by members of the Fellowship. It also presents news of ISO and regional activities, and other information of interest to members of the Fellowship.

Approximately 6,500 copies of the newsletter are printed and emailed each issue. The Outer Circle is vital way to share the message of recovery to all SAA members including prisoners and others who don’t have access to the Internet.

If you have comments or suggestions for The Outer Circle, send them to the Editor of The Outer Circle by or by postal mail to the ISO office. To have an article consider for publication, see our Writer’s Guidelines.
