Sexaholics Anonymous is different to other sex-related fellowships because it has a definition of sobriety. In Sexaholics Anonymous a person is sober today if they have not had sex with him/herself or a partner other than a spouse. In other S-fellowships members determine their own definition of sobriety. Sexaholics Anonymous has no opinions on the benefits or physiological effects of sexual abstinence. In Sexaholics Anonymous members stop the behaviour and then seek progressive victory over lust.
