Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA) is for women

Women can be sex addicts and we have found a solution.


In SAA there are fewer women than men, but women can have addictive sexual behaviours. Behaviours that we can’t stop without help. Perhaps that’s how you came to be at this website.

This website contains information focused on women. We remember though that all genders have the same disease, and the same recovery.

Use the SAA quiz (on the website) to find out if you identify with other sex addicts.

What is sex addiction?

Sex addiction is a compulsive need to engage in sexual behaviours and sometimes to avoid them. In addiction some of us had periods of ‘acting out’ and ‘acting in’.


We practice strict anonymity and confidentiality, so that our meetings are a safe place for all of us. Who we meet or what is said in a meeting is considered as confidential.

Contact us –

“Our fellowship is open to women and men, regardless of age, race, religion, ethnic background, marital status, or occupation. We welcome members of any sexual identity or orientation, whether they are gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, or transgender.”

Sex Addicts Anonymous, p. 1-2

The only requirement for SAA membership is a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior.
