As the host of a web site on "Breaking Pornography Addiction" I have read dozens of books on sex addiction. This book is the one I most often.
Modern sexologists sometimes encourage pornography and masturbation in order to explore and express one's own sexuality, which are clearly forbidden to SA members abiding by their own literature.
The "founder" of SA himself, Roy K. Some regular SA meetings can devolve into "relapse culture" where members continue to attend for years without ever accumulating any long-term sobriety. The issue is that anyone can attend SA as long as they claim to have a desire to be free from lust and be sexually sober according to the 3rd tradition of SA - yet there is usually no apparatus to quantify this desire and constant relapsers are tolerated.

Other Tags: Online Graduate Courses: As with members of other S fellowships some SA members add additional behaviors to their "bottom lines" such as voyeurism, exhibitionism, viewing pornography, unsurrendered fantasy and objectification of others in an attempt to achieve "progressive victory over lust. A leading psychologist involved in sexual addiction treatment, Patrick Carnes , clearly encourages self-defined sobriety in his writings, saying that a no-masturbation definition of sobriety is only appropriate for some sex addicts and that bottom lines can in fact be modified over time .
Some homosexual authors criticize SA for its pro-heterosexual marriage stance . In their adherence to the 12 Traditions adapted from AA, other S groups do not offer an opinion on SA, or indeed on "any outside enterprise," but they would not agree with the opinion expressed here about them, that they are less similar to AA than SA. A common argument is that their approaches as potentially more accurate and more thorough, comprehensive treatment.
Also other S Groups see their own programs as squarely based on AA's disease-concept, for example they forego use of the term 'lust' in describing sex addiction just as AA forgoes use of the term intemperance or gluttony to describe alcoholism.
Some use the widely accepted term "compulsive sexual behavior" in use by the medical and psychology establishments.
Some feel that by SA defining sexual sobriety as only occurring within a heterosexual marital union, it has stepped beyond the role of treating a compulsive disease and by conflating alternative preference with compulsivity, has taken sides in the debate on the roots of alternative sexual preferences. Other S fellowships, meanwhile, take the position that the issue of sexual preference may often be completely separate, what they term "an outside issue," and so in such cases they can have no opinion on it.
Many individuals in recovery from compulsive sexual behavior report that repressing their homosexuality was fuel for their pattern of compulsivity, and that their sexual sobriety has become possible only with accepting their sexual orientation.
