McCabe, Marita P.; Cummins, Robert A.
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v31 n1 p13-21 Mar 1996
Thirty adults with mild mental retardation and 50 first-year psychology students were surveyed regarding their sexual knowledge, experience, feelings, and needs. Subjects with mental retardation had less knowledge, more negative attitudes toward sexual issues, and less experience in intimacy and sexual intercourse, but more experience in pregnancy, masturbation, and sexually transmitted diseases.
