By Jerry & Mary Newport Autism - Asperger’s and Sexuality is a groundbreaking, personal look at the sexual challenges of those diagnosed with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
Authors Jerry and Mary Newport were both diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as adults. They spent much of their lives trying to be "normal" and never quite fitting in. Yet they beat the odds by becoming one of the few married couples with autism that have not only found love, but kept it alive. Their stories were the focus of the movie Mozart the Whale, starring Josh Hartnett and Radha Mitchell. Here they share their first-hand knowledge, helping to guide young autistic adults and their caregivers through this sometimes bewildering, but fascinating, topic. This book includes advice on dating, sex, birth control, disease prevention, abuse, and personal responsibility.
"I appreciate the fact that there has been a book written on this subject especially for individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Jerry and Mary Newport have done an excellent job at giving a first hand look at the difficulties of dealing with the sensitive issues of someone's sexuality and offering some very good advice. This is a much needed book. Thanks." - Carlisle
