Alcoholics Anonymous is a support/fellowship group to help them share a common problem. AA was the first 12-step program, and since then, other recovery groups have started or have adopted a similar 12-step program. I have not been through that program, nor do I have a drinking problem.
But I was chatting with someone yesterday, and they joked about AA. But they did not mean Alcoholics Anonymous. They meant Adulterers Anonymous. I had never heard of Adulterers Anonymous, but you know, I googled it, and you know, there is such a group. I had heard of Sexaholics Anonymous.
Okay, I don't have any personal experience with this, but you know, I can't imagine sending my husband to Adulterers Anonymous.
Imagine, if you will, the scene.
Several men and women, arranged in a circle, look nervously around. A table oddly arranged in the corner, holds warm coffee and stale cookies. An attractive, thirty-something brunette rises, adjusts her skirt, and states: "My name is Leesa. I am an adulterer. Or is that an adulteress? It has been three days since my last elicit encounter."
After tripping over the adulterer/adulteress terminology1, Ms. Leesa would talk about various and sundry things, her weakness for penises, her drive to please me, et cetera.
Then there would be a break to consume cookies, meet one another in the toilet for a quickie, et cetera.
I just don't think it is wise to get people together who have a weakness for sex in a room, introducing them to one another. You know what I mean? After the meeting, do you want to go out for coffee and a BJ? I mean, come on.
I know that some people are addicted to sex. And some people have problems with remaining faithful. But to get them in a group seems, in some sense comical. I mean, I can see some guys joining the group just to improve their chance of getting laid.
