Sex addiction is an intimacy disorder, meaning the ability to be grounded in reality and genuinely connected emotionally with another person can be damaged by compulsive sexual behaviors. In addition, some SAA members have found themselves “‘shut down’ sexually in recovery, afraid of sex because of its association in our minds with our addiction or with past sexual trauma, or because of a fear of intimacy and vulnerability.” (Sex Addicts Anonymous, page 72)
The SAA telemeetings which focus on applying the Twelve Steps to heal from the avoidance of true intimacy would like to invite you to learn more. Two Intimacy and Sexual Avoidance (ISA) awareness events are taking place: Tuesday, March 26 at 8:00 p.m. US Central time and Saturday, March 30 at 2:00 p.m. US Central time. The events will be held using the Zoom video platform (participants can also join by audio-only using a phone).
