New site for Los Angeles Intergroup

| No Comments
Los Angeles Intergroup has established a new site: www.scalosangeles.org

Almost all of the site is available in both English and Spanish. (To reach a Spanish page, it seems that you first have to go to the proper English page and then click on the "EspaƱol" link at the bottom. There does not appear to be a way to navigate in Spanish yet.)

Your suggestions and comments are welcome.

Healthy Dating Workshop in LA

| No Comments
As part of its 12th Step outreach, LA Intergroup is participating in the following workshop...

Discover the Tools of Healthy Dating

For Better Intimacy in Relationships

 

DATE: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER  11
TIME:  7:00 pm SHARP
LOCATION: The Village at Ed Gould Plaza

1125 N. McCadden Place
Los Angeles, CA  90038

RSVP: No need to RSVP -- just show up...on time, please!

EVENT COST: This is a free event.

Never mind the breaking news about Tiger Woods, George Michael or David Duchovny who plays a sex addict on TV. Have you ever wondered if you or your friends are in healthy dating relationships?  Is the definition of intimacy getting naked together, or is it something more?  What is healthy dating and how can that be pursued? What's the difference between lust and healthy sexual desires?

For many men, sexual compulsive behaviors are a way of trying to fill an emotional void that's rarely satiated by one-night stands, masturbation, hours and hours of viewing Internet porn, or even engaging in loving, monogamous sex, all to achieve euphoric thrills of gratification.

In this frank and candid Q &A workshop, your questions and concerns can be explored in complete anonymity led by a panel of volunteers of Sexual Compulsives Anonymous, a 12-step program.

Many men have an unusually intense sex drive and may experience an unhealthy preoccupation with sex, despite the negative consequences they bring.

Participants will explore the 14 characteristics of a sexually compulsive person and answer 20 questions that will help define their human sexuality.

Whether you are single or in a relationship, this workshop will explore on a personal level how today's active man can come to terms with becoming better partners and living happier more fulfilled lives.

Refreshments, literature and fellowship after the meeting will be offered.
