Hurt by a sex addict? There’s help in Canberra

The Canberra S-Anon meeting is held every Monday night (except public holidays) at 6pm in a private meeting room at the back Dickson Library (use the back entrance opposite the health centre).  Anyone affected by another person’s sexual addiction is welcome to attend.  

Our Experience of Sex Addiction

If you’re visiting this page we know from personal experience things aren’t great in your life. We’ve lived with the insanity of having a sex addict in our lives too.

The sex addict in our lives can be a:

  • family member
  • partner, husband, or wife
  • child
  • friend
  • teacher
  • religious leader
  • boss
  • or someone else.

Sex addiction takes many forms – affairs, sex with children, sex with prostitutes or other strangers, online or telephone sex, compulsive use of pornography or masturbation, fantasy, voyeurism, exhibitionism, masochism, sadism, sexual violence, withholding sex, sex with animals, or something else – whatever form the sex addict’s behaviour took you are not alone.

We find it doesn’t matter whether we knew what was going on or not, whether we joined in willingly or not – sex addiction deeply affected us. We became nervous, cranky, and unreasonable; we struggled to think straight, and we lost perspective.

We’ve been lonely, hurt, confused, and frustrated too; but in S-Anon we have found there is no situation too awful to improve and no sadness too great to lighten.
