Sexual Integrity

With integrity, you have nothing to fear since you have nothing to hide.

A primary goal for most recovering sex addicts is developing what noted sex addiction therapist Rob Weiss refers to as sexual integrity. Having sexual integrity does not mean your sexual behaviors must conform with some societal norm, like only having sex in the missionary position with your spouse. Instead, sexual integrity is unique to each person—based on that person’s background, values, and life situation. And nobody—not a therapist, not a 12-step sponsor, not a priest, not your mother—can or should try to tell you what your personal version of sexual integrity should look like. That said, part of having sexual integrity is understanding that others, most notably your loving partner (if you have one), can and often are affected by your sexual choices. So, as you develop your sense of sexual integrity, you should keep that tenet in mind.
