This online study is being conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts Lowell in order to learn more about some of the experiences related to sex that adults with autism may have, and characteristics that may be related to these experiences. The survey includes questions about your demographic information; some traits you may have, such as risk perception and interpreting emotions; and experiences you may have had related to sex.
