Sex, Sexuality and the Autistic Spectrum is about how the differing cognitive style and sensory profiles experienced in ASD impact upon communication and relating. It uses plain language and attempts to address ordinary questions such as 'Do autistic people experience feelings of sexual arousal?', 'Flirting; how the hell do you do it?', 'Do I have to involve other people in my sexuality, or can I handle it myself?' and 'How can I tell if my relationship is over?.'
The book attempts to explore the everyday stuff of discovering self and other. It takes the reader through the range of knowledge from sexuality to dating, relating and owning one's own sexuality.
