“I’ve recently been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. I’m really relieved, and it makes sense of a lot of behaviors that I used to question. Especially when it comes to my avoidance of sex. This wouldn’t be so much of a problem, but I am happily married to a man with a healthy sexual appetite. I want to be able to enjoy having sex with him, and actively engage in the act, but I just can’t get over the weird sensations and being emotionally overstimulated. Sometimes I end up overthinking it, and psych myself out and ruin the mood. I’m hoping this isn’t too NSFW, but is there anything that helps? Any tips or suggestions? Not having sex at all isn’t an option I like, because it isn’t fair to him especially since physical touch as a form of affection is huge for him. I just want to be able to be intimate with him physically… Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated!!”
