Welcome to avoidnomore.org. This website aims to be a one-stop shop for resources about recovery from sexual anorexia, or compulsive avoidance of sex and intimacy.

How do I know if I'm sexually anorexic?

There are several Twelve-Step fellowships (groups patterned after Alcoholics Anonymous) which help people with sexual anorexia. Open to Change has a list of characteristics; Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous has some questions you can ask yourself; and a Sex Addicts Anonymous leaflet has a list of avoidant behaviors.

Ok, so I identify. What next?

There are lots of resources signposted on this website that can help: books and leaflets, articles, audio and video, groups and more. You're not alone, and you can access useful organisations wherever you are in the world, in face-to-face meetings or via Skype or telephone. As the concept of sexual anorexia becomes more well-known, more and more therapists are also becoming able to help people. We hope you find this website helpful on your journey towards recovery and abundance.
