Ousley, Opal Y.; Mesibov, Gary B.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v21 n4 p471-81 Dec 1991
Interviews with 21 high-functioning adults with autism and 20 mildly to moderately mentally retarded adults without autism indicated that the mentally retarded group had more sexual experiences, with no intergroup differences in sexual knowledge or interest. Intelligence quotient was positively correlated with knowledge scores and males had greater interest in sexuality than females. (Author/JDD)
