Asperger's Syndrome or Asperger's Disorder is an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that is distinguished by patterns of symptoms as opposed to a single symptom. Characteristics of Asperger's can include restrictive patterning in behavior, activities and interests. It can also include preoccupation of narrow subjects, abnormalities in speech such as abrupt transitions, literal interpretations and mis-comprehension of nuance.  But what we're going to focus on in this episode are the challenges that come from the unusually sensitive or insensitivity to sound, light and touch. 

We will be joined by a former guest Steve from the episode Seduction by Sole who has Asperger's and can tell us first hand how Asperger's effects his sex  and fetish life.  This is an especially important episode for those of you in the sex and BDSM world who may encounter someone with Asperger's and how they can make their sexual experience even better and how to avoid pitfalls that can come with these intense sensitivities.
