I have been really excited to share this topic with all of you because it is one we talk or think about daily but rarely dive into from OUR Autistic perspectives.
There are so many aspects to sex and sexuality from the Autistic and Autistic/ADHD experience that are very different from the neuro-majority from our sensory preferences, processing differences, Alexithymia and many more.
Join in the conversations this month in live community events and workshops with special guests which include: Michael John Carley, Candice Christiansen, Amy Gravino, Mona from Neurodiverse Love and MORE.
Autistic Sex is unique to our neurotype experience from sexual identification be it bi, pan, asexual, non-binary and beyond and our sensory and processing needs in sexual intimacy with ourselves and with others.
Let's talk about it and explore what sex is to US. We are wonderfully wired, NeuroDistinct and how we have, don't have and enjoy or find sexual pleasure varies. ALL Autistic ADHD adults are invited to this conversation.
Reminder: Mind Your Autistic Brain Community is based in Kindness, Gentleness, Patience and Understanding for ourselves and others.
Please be respectful of different experiences and perspectives.
Keep comments and engagement kind and from a place of compassionate curiosity. We all have different beliefs and experiences, those are honored here.
Any comments that fall outside of this container set above will be removed from the dialogue and any person whose actions do not honor these MYAB rules will be removed.

From the world-renowned autistic speaker and author, Michael John Carley, comes a guide to sexual activity for individuals on the autism spectrum that is not a leap, but a quantum leap from similar books of the past. For anyone who feels anxious or negative about the subject, Carley has once again made sex not only fun, but also inclusive. His book is a how-to guide, a primer on relationship structures, a porn clarifier, a masturbation celebrator, and above all, a permission granter to (if not a demander of) pleasure itself. His writing is passionately critical of the fear-based teachings of the past, crisp, and at times, ingeniously funny. The brilliant Ha!’s 70-plus, explicit illustrations solidify the joyful nature of this book by depicting people of all sizes, colors, ages, and especially, orientations. For all neurodivergent people who are seeking happy sex lives, THE book has arrived!

No one seems to ‘get it’. Friends and family think you just need to push through or "self-care" more. Internally, so many people in late identified life (me included) feel broken, ashamed or like they are failing or have never reached their full potential, when all along they've had a brain and sensory system that is different from the masses. It can take a lot of strength to keep going.
