Defining Sexual Sobriety

As a fellowship, we have found that for us sexual sobriety means no sex with self, no pornography and no sex with anyone other than our wives. For those of us who are single, sexual sobriety means abstaining from sex in any form. Our own futile attempts to control our addiction and our own enlightened self-interest has forced us to this conclusion. This commitment to sobriety has helped to lead us to a freedom and intimacy we could otherwise never know.
