Sex on the Spectrum

Have you ever wondered if you or your partner might fall on the autism spectrum? Do you have autism and struggle to understand how to navigate romantic relationships and sex? Do you have an autistic child and are wondering how to help them navigate their sexuality in a healthy way? Then you need to listen to today’s episode. Autism affects about 2% of the population, and we are beginning to have a clearer understanding of how to help autistic folks have meaningful relationships and sexual experiences if that’s what they desire. Today I sit down with sex counselor, Nicholas Maio-Aether. He brings a unique perspective as a licensed clinician and an autistic adult. Together we chat about all things sex, love, and autism.

You can learn more about Nicholas on his website, his instagram, and his facebook.
