Sex Workers Anonymous is a group, program, society, fellowship, or collection of men and women (as well as transgenders) for whom the sex industry has/had become a problem.
We meet regularly to give each other our “experience, strength and hope” so that through the process of sharing, empathy and networking we are able to find healing, hope, and happiness.
We are a 12 Step group for men and women who have a desire to leave the sex industry behind – and find recovery.
That to say that not all members have to say that sex work has/had become an “addiction” for them to join. Our only requirement for membership is a “desire to stay out of the sex industry and find recovery”. This is to say that one has/had to have decided not only do they want to stay out of the sex industry in any form – but that they are coming to us because they find they also need help in finding “recovery”.
Another reason you don’t have to say sex work was/is an addiction for you in order to join is because some of us were forced in some fashion to do what we did. However, for “us”, we found that once that force was removed – something was drawing us back like a moth to a flame and despite knowing it was destructive for us – we found ourselves being attracted, or drawn back into, or even “relapsing” back into the sex industry time and time again.
With Sex Workers Anonymous there is hope.
