My name is Olivia and I’m a sex addict.
I see discussions about (half) naked selfies/other pictures arising regularly on the forum. I also see confusion and irritation among forum users, whose doc is not sex-related, as to why such pictures get flagged. This topic was created to shed light on these matters.
In case you didn’t know, TS welcomes people with all addictions, not just substance abusers. This place is supposed to be a safe place to recover for all of us, hence the community guidelines.
On this thread I’d like to welcome especially my fellow sex/love/PMO addicts to share their point of view of what kind of things on the forum either support or hinder their recovery. The purpose of this is NOT to have a go at someone but to speak on a general level. (PMO stands for porn, masturbation, orgasm)
We understand that pictures of drinking and drugging can be triggering or make someone in recovery uncomfortable. I hope such understanding would be extended to us who are sensitive to partial or full nudity.
