What’s in our Banner?

We respect the Copyright laws of Sexaholics Anonymous.  Thus, we had to come up with our own logo for the SA Teleconference Website.

The #1 purpose of this web site is “To serve the fellowship of Sexaholics Anonymous (SA)”.

men-women_rest_room_iconIf you like the website, join our committee.  If you do NOT like our website, join our committee.  In other words, “we can do together what I cannot do alone”.  If you have a suggestion, constructive criticism, question, etc. then we welcome your input !

Nevertheless, where do you commonly see the man/woman logo?  At every restroom door, right?  Notice the S-Anon logo includes “Family Groups”.  Our official Sexaholics Anonymous logo has a very s-anon_logo_blackunique standard gender symbol denoting male ♂ and female ♀ .  This is derived from astrological symbols, denoting the classical planets Mars and Venus, respectively.

These symbols have been in use since the Renaissance also denoting elements in alchemy, specifically the metals iron and copper.

They were first used to denote the effective sex of plants (i.e. sex of individual in a given crossbreed, since most plants are hermaphroditic) by Carolus Linnaeus in 1751.

The shape of the Mars symbol has been likened to an iron-tipped spear (i.e. a weapon mainly used by men) and shape of the Venus symbol to a bronze mirror or a distaff male-female_logo.jpg

We also have a “Splash page” that changes frequently.  Currently we are featuring the band Cold Play who played during the Super Bowl L halftime show.

All music is what awakes from you when you are reminded by the instruments.
—Walt Whitman

A small group of friends sat in a room around a record player. It was a heavy old thing, with parts that had to be operated by hand and only one speaker – nothing like a modern stereo at all, but more like an antique phonograph. The record – a recording of their favorite music – was old, too, and scratched, its grooves worn smooth as a stone in some places. The tone arm skipped and scratched, and the sound was tinny, hard on the ears.

Most of the friends squirmed in their seats as they listened, and several grumbled that it was impossible to hear the music with such inferior equipment.

But one of the group sat listening, her eyes closed, swaying to the music and humming softly to herself.

“How can you enjoy this?” the others asked.

“Ah,” she said with a mysterious smile. “I am listening beyond the recording to the music I know is there!”

Can I find the music that’s playing for me today?
