Intimacy and Adults With Autism
This event is facilitated by Dr Monique Huysamen who is a critical qualitative researcher with a particular interest in gender, sexualities, and neurodiversities. SAAIL (Supporting Autistic Adults' Intimate Lives) is a sex-positive research project that aims to explore and represent autistic adults' intimate lives in affirmative ways. The motivation behind SAAIL: Our society is set up according to neurotypical dating and relational scripts. A lack of awareness amongst non-autistic people around experiences of neurodiversity may play out in dating and intimate situations can cause barriers for autistic people. This project aims to help address this lack of awareness, asking autistic people how they would like their intimate lives represented and supported.
