Members of SCA have learned through sharing their experience, strength, and

hope with each other that sexual compulsivity. is a disease.  This disease has three

dimensions:  physical, emotional, and spiritual.

Physically, we engage in sexual behaviors that we know are not healthy for us or

that place us in legal, physical, or spiritual jeopardy.  Emotionally, we experience

a "high" in contemplating and engaging in the "acting out" behavior, follow by

an emotional let-down after acting out has concluded.  Spiritually, we feel

disconnected from others, especially from relationships we want to "healthy"


The Twenty Questions

SCA members have devised the Twenty Questions to help newcomers decide

whether  they are sexually compulsive.  While the decision as to whether one has

the disease of sexual compulsivity is an individual one, most people who are not

sexually compulsive will answer yes to none of these questions, or perhaps one or

two.  If you answer yes to three or more, we encourage you to consider what our

program has to offer.  Ask yourself the Twenty Questions.

The Fourteen Characteristics

SCA members have found that we share certain characteristics in common.  The

fourteen characteristics are often read at the beginning of SCA meetings.

Admitting That We Are Powerless

If we decide that we have the disease of sexual compulsion, the first step toward

recovery is to admit that we are powerless over our condition and that it makes

our lives unmanageable.  When we can do so, we are ready to move on to the 12-

step recovery program.  The only requirement for membership in SCA is a desire

to stop our compulsive sexual behavior.  Begin The Twelve Steps.
