    Being the SO (significant other) of a porn addict can be a lonely experience. The anger, betrayal, loss of self-confidence, shame. Having a partner addicted to pornography is not something most people would want to share with their friends or family. With nobody to talk you, you may feel isolated, like you are the only one among your friends and family with a partners addicted to porn.

    The truth is, your situation is very common. Porn is one of the leading causes of breakups in relationships today. Not only that, pornography use is rampant. 87% or young men and 31% of young women have admitted to using pornography, and that doesn't count the people who were too ashamed to admit their porn use. Point is, porn addiction is widespread, and so are the problems it can create in relationships.

    You are not alone. Here at NoFap, you will find a community of SOs like yourself who are struggling with the same, or very similar problems. This great and supportive community of men and women have created a support group, SOS (Significant Others Support), for people like you who need some help in difficult times. The group is an exclusive group, only SOs can join through invitation or by request. If you are interested, click here to request to join the group, or post in this thread, and a group moderator will send you an invitation.

    PLEASE NOTE: The SOS group is only for significant others (male or female) of porn addicted individuals. If you are an SO, you are welcome. If you are not an SO, please do not apply to join the SOS group. It is for SOs only.

    Also, please note that the SOS group is a community-operated support group and does not necessarily represent the opinions of the NoFap administration.

    I'm sorry, I'm not as active here lately and I didn't see this until now. I invited you.

    The best way for SOs to join the group is to go to groups, https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?groups/
    Click on SOS group and request to join.

    Did you ever get a response? I also requested to join but it is still pending so I wondered if it's just me.

    I've also requested and haven't heard. Anyone getting a response? (though I know very little time has passed, so I anticipate not)

    I would also like to know how to join this group? I did the request but so far nothing. As much as I do genuinely like this forum so far, I would really love to be apart of a Spouses or SO support group.

    A group administrator needs to approve your request. The group is closed so that only partners of significant others may join. @ILoathePwife @ILoathePorn can you help these members? Thanks.

    I will see if my wife can add you when she wakes up. I would but I am not a member or administrator of that group.

    OK, thanks for drawing my attention to this @matthewmammothrept. It appears there's a problem, possibly after the changes to the groups? I do periodically check to approve new member requests and I have multiple others doing the same, but I have no notifications that these ladies requested to join the group. I wouldn't, if someone else approved them, but I did a spot check, and they aren't already in the group. (As would be the case if someone approved it before me, this morning or something.) I went into the group to invite them, but that field has disappeared. Only search for members is there now. So I can't approve their requests and I can't add them myself. (And was there another field? I can't remember.)

    Sorry ladies! This appears to be a technical issue. Hopefully we can get it resolved soon.
