Autism: New findings on neurodiverse sexuality to improve healthcare

In the study – published in the journal Autism Research – the findings contradicted the stereotype that autistic individuals are uninterested in sexual or romantic relationships.

Being the largest study to date, the team at the Autism Research Centre used anonymous, self-reported surveys to study the sexual activity, orientation, and sexual health of autistic adults.

Overall, 1,183 autistic and 1,203 non-autistic adolescents and adults (aged 16 to 90 years old) provided information on themselves.

The results showed that 70 percent of autistic males and 76 percent of autistic females engaged in sexual activity.
