A self-assessment is simple.
We focus on what matters most.
For your privacy we do not save your answers.
Do you keep secrets about your sexual behavior or romantic fantasies from those important to you? Do you lead a double life?
Have your desires driven you to have sex in places or with people you would not normally choose?
Do you need greater variety, increased frequency, or more extreme sexual activities to achieve the same level of excitement or relief?
Does your use of pornography occupy large amounts of time and/or jeopardize your significant relationships or employment?
Do your relationships become distorted with sexual preoccupation? Does each new relationship have the same destructive pattern which prompted you to leave the last one?
Do you frequently want to get away from a partner after having sex? Do you feel remorse, shame, or guilt after a sexual encounter?
Have your sexual practices caused you legal problems? Could your sexual practices cause you legal problems?
Does your pursuit of sex or sexual fantasy conflict with your moral standards or interfere with your personal spiritual journey?
Do your sexual activities involve coercion, violence, or the threat of disease?
Has your sexual behavior or pursuit of sexual relationships ever left you feeling hopeless, alienated from others, or suicidal?
Does your preoccupation with sexual fantasies cause problems in any area of your life—even when you do not act out your fantasies?
Do you compulsively avoid sexual activity due to fear of sex or intimacy? Does your sexual avoidance consume you mentally?
How to analyze the results.
If you answered “Yes” to more than one of these questions, we encourage you to attend one of our meetings or contact us. Even though it is a simple self-assessment it is not always easy. We focus on what matters most based on our experience.
Why going to a meeting would help.
“Meetings are places where we can drop our emotional defenses and get honest in a way we are rarely able to experience outside of the fellowship. SAA is one of the very few places where we can talk candidly about our sexual behavior without fear of judgment or ridicule. Once we break our self-imposed silence, we are able to be more honest and to form stronger bonds with the members of our group. It is these bonds that enrich our recovery process. In time, we learn to trust our fellow members and to receive their trust in us.” (Sex Addicts Anonymous)
