There's a conference for recovering Sexual Addicts going on here in Portland now. Many of the attendees are *smoking* hot. How bad am I for thinking about derailing someone's recovery?
Your not terrible.
It's like a salesman going to a shopping convention. It is just good business :)
Is your username meaning "id" as in inner self? (don't knock me... I just thought of it)
And why are YOU there? <g> (don't answer)
It's not funny. It IS like taking alcohol to an AA meeting. You may be surprised that some of them have enough recovery to ignore you or to kindly rebuff you. Your fantasies only support destructive behavior.
How do you know, are you an attendee? :p
Isn't a convention of sex addicts in itself derailing? Isn't that like taking a keg to an AA meeting?
Put down the binoculars and walk away from the window!
RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!!!!!!
Stay strong ID : )
My guess is a decent amount of them are attending just to meet others and derail their own recovery anyway. :)
Just promise not to go all the way to Nirvana and back!
Sort of like offering an alcoholic a drink. It would all be in the timing and how tempting the drink looked.
I'm not sure I believe sexual addiction is really a "thing" so I'd be trying to meet attendees for study purposes anyway. If something came of one of those meetings, well...
I wasn't sure it was real either and that ppl used it as an excuse for their philandering until I met one and understood the real damage it caused. A lot of abuse as a young child and a lot of damage in their adult life.
IMO, I think they're just people who are trying to fit into regular straight laced society & typical monogamous relationships when that's not where they belong, like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Meanwhile, there are a lot of
alternative lifestyles & lifestyle groups out there, non-monogamous people who live life w/much more sexual freedom. I think these "addicts" would not just fit, but thrive, in some of those groups & relationships.

I think you need to stand in the corner, by yourself, hands at your side.
Lets just say that Portland might be considered a "target-rich environment".
Not bad for thinking it...just don't do it. ;)
I've been in near-constant mental trysts.
And my neck hurts from turning to look at the...sights.
Well, you could volunteer as a test subject, making sure they're fully recovered... For science and health.
I'm with Mr
Teach them to moderate,
by sometimes giving in.
