-What are the experiences of sexuality and relationships that are unique to all individuals with Aspergers and ASD? -How have these experiences worked to shape and develop your sense of self, sexual orientation, and gender identity? Researchers at Deakin University are looking to learn more about the experiences, concerns and positive factors that males, females, and non-binary genders on the spectrum face as they approach young adulthood, and pursue the romantic and sexual life that best meets their wants and needs. It is hoped that with greater understanding, findings can work to inform parents, partners, and supporters of ASD of the many factors that are important to those with ASD, while enhancing sexuality support services and programs tailored to specifically address the issues and concerns that are expressed by this unique group.

Hello So here it goes, a little about me. I am 41 and I am Bisexual. I live with my partner in Surrey, near to London. Since a very young age, life has not been easy for me. I was sexually abused between the ages of 8-11 by a family friend (female) and since then I have struggled with life. As well as certain sexual fears, I also suffer from Anxiety, OCD and other aspects of Asperger's I am sure many of you can relate to this, but my main issues are: I cannot relax, my mind is so full of stuff all the time, I cannot switch off and relax I get worried and anxious about everything, even if it's something I am looking forward to. I am not keen on being a crowded place where I cannot see an easy exit. I have OCD and have to have a routine all the time, I have to plan things ahead. I am very shy and lack confidence. I have not had many sexual partners. I never think I look good enough. I fidget all the time, and have trouble sitting still. I am frustrated with most things. I get bored easily. I talk too much and don't mission too much. I can get angry and upset very easily. I could go on and on with this, but just wanted to put something down here to start with. It's good to be on this forum. Damon
