Do males with Asperger's Syndrome have normal sexual intercourse with women, or do they prefer masturbation only and cannot climax with a real woman?
Do they exclusively go for the fantasy in their heads, or can they have normal intercourse? And when they try to have sex with real women, do they have erection problems? perhaps because real-life sex doesn't arouse them enough, only masturbation to porn?
Have you, as an "Aspie", experienced erection issues or other sexual dysfunction during actual sex with women? Do you avoid relationships or any situations leading to sex?
OK here's my story. I have Asperger's Syndrome and OCD. I was a late bloomer and didn't lose my virginity until quite late. When I try to have sex with a woman, I get extremely aroused when I undress her and fondle her body. However, the sexual act itself is kind of "alien" and I lose my erection during the first thrusts. Moreover, sometimes I get anxious in relationships whenever I feel that sex is possible.
Is this a fundamental sex/relationships issue related to my Asperger's syndrome? Or is this more of an anxiety issue that can be addressed by a psychologist?
What are your experiences with sex?
hey mate, im knew to this board, or any boards like it.. i havent been formally diagnosed with aspergers, but have many of the same symptoms. visiting this board has been really eye opening.. just seeing that there are so many people like me. anyway, im 25, male, and have always struggled with sex... ive been in denial about it for a long time, kinda thought it was nerves, just needed to find the right women, it would work itself out eventually, or whatever, but im facing up to it now. ive been to a gp, a uroligist, ect, had all the tests, and it seems like physically everything is fine, so im left to assume its a mental thing. i love affection, i get along with women fine.. i dunno.. i struggle to get an erection, and when i do i lose it in the first few thrusts.. its a huge, huge, source of pain and embarresment to so if anyone has any advice for me, it would be hugely appreciated. thanks, peace
