Autism and Sexuality Education: Centering Pleasure in Prevention

Wednesday, May 1, 5pm – 6pm
& Friday, May 3, 2024, 5pm-6:30pm

Presented by Morrigan Hunter (MA, MSW)

Live on Zoom

These two sessions address pleasure and autonomy as guiding principles for sexual health education in the Autistic community.

Through open discussions and interactive exercises, we’ll explore:

  • Moving beyond traditional models of sexual health education to focus on building a positive and empowering relationship with sexuality.
  • Creating a safe space to explore topics like gender identity, sexual orientation, and developing a healthy sense of self-ownership when it comes to sexual choices and experiences.
  • Tailoring sexual health education materials to be accessible and informative for Autistic adults.

These sessions are designed for Autistic adults who want to feel empowered and knowledgeable about their sexual health, as well as parents/family members/caregivers and professionals.
