Can people with asperger's syndrome be asexual?

6 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Most, but not all individuals with asperger's syndrome appear to have a relatively low sex drive; some, however, actually become preoccupied with sex.
Social relationships are typically quite difficult for the individuals, and the drive to connect romantically with another person may seem too overwhelming to consider.

In brief: Aspergers

I think the best answer is that you can be who fits you the most.
I think some aspies struggle with sexual identity and the best way to process this is with a really good psychologist who can explore this with you. A lot of this tends to go along with identity development but therapy the best way to explore. Thanks for asking this! http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=xg1ngp1ngds.
