Webinar Description

The various mindsets and approaches to romantic relationships are as varied within the autism spectrum community as without. No two people are alike. However, there are some challenges that run across predilections and persuasions, e.g. sensory issues or social aversions. There are things that a sometimes too-trusting Aspie might need to consider.

Sometimes our boundaries are not very solid. We tend to be a little bit genderless, chameleons that like to explore, change and sometimes even shape-shift. But there are physical and emotional risks to consider, precautions to take, things that other people should know about us and things we should know about other people. Sometimes lacking in theory of mind, we might not understand why we don’t always get the reaction we seek.

There has not been enough positive and candid discussion of sexuality in the autism community. This webinar will push boundaries a little while also being appropriate for professionals, and teenagers and adults on the autism spectrum.
