Many people on the spectrum never get “the talk” from their parents, and therefore suffer from “information deficit.” This book goes a long way toward filling in the gaps in their knowledge. It takes a candid look at aspects of sex and relationships as they apply to people on the autism spectrum: building self-confidence, dating, personal grooming, cleanliness, and explicit advice on how to initiate sex with a partner. Also covered: avoiding pregnancy and STDs, dealing with rejection, how to build a loving relationship that includes sexual intimacy, and more. This is an everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know kind of book!
Audience: Adolescents/Teens, Parent, Professional
