 Forum: Adult Autism Issues   Topic: sex dolls, anatomically correct

Interesting topic! For the naysayers, I should point out that sex dolls or the adoption of artificial tools and companions belong well within the ranks of harmless endeavors, and can even goes as far as beneficial, life-impacting mental health measures. It also isn't as extreme as you'd at first ass...

By 'gold nuggets' I meant the development of a treatment product that can be sold across the globe. I don't mean to say that it isn't already a big industry. But that being said, I'd like to apologize as a good bit of what I said was conjecture and I didn't properly qualify my statements, and I spen...

Regardless of TCM specifically, traditional medicine has had remedies that were proven to be effective...but it's also had a lot proven BS, propagated both ignorantly and knowingly. Treating TCM as some kind of legitimate alternative medicine is just as BS as other attempts to validate well develope...

Communications are two-way roads, and a lot can happen in between. - Knowledge regarding the topic, or background or related knowledge can be lacking or different between either party. - The language used and known can be lacking or different from either party. - Context (like what each party assume...

To my mind, there are two main issues, which unfortunately don't have as much focus as they should. 1) The issue isn't with the label themselves or what they mean, but the misuse and misunderstanding of them by others; some people just don't know and only go by what little they've learned, and other...

I wasn't aware that I was autistic, or potentially bisexual, until adulthood where people are typically more mature and think more for themselves. I wasn't out until my 20's, and diagnosed with ASD until my 30's. My ADHD is very minor. I've never been bullied for being lgbt+ or having ASD. I kind of...

Having your own fortress of peace and solitude is great, but going out and interacting with the world in some capacity is also necessary for our mental health. 1) I'd suggest to find some safe places nearby that you can also go to to spend some time at. Reading or watching some videos at a nearby pa...

The experience has a lot more, that 2D images on a screen just can't make up for. In particular, the engagement with the person is an experience you just can't replicate. I'd consider it a worthwhile expense, if done right. Once you find a decent place, it's a guaranteed good experience, much more d...

@nick007, NB means non-binary gender identity. Also, haha I have to say that your preference must be difficult to manage. You tend to be submissive but prefer submissive women and taking a more dominant role in a romantic relationship. Perhaps something that might be helpful for you to think about i...

I didn't know this was rare among NTs. As a woman who prefers submissive men I sometimes wonder if I'll ever find love lol. Especially because where I live finding a romantic partner seems to be becoming the exception more than the rule as is. But since I'm rather childish I can't see myself as a &...

@Fraser_S Those thoughts and feelings are temporary. I've been dealing with those kinds of thoughts and feelings for years now. After dealing with it so long, I've figured out a lot of stuff about it. Those 'episodes' can be quite short, and that's probably what people who've experie...

My sexuality is ever shifting. Sometimes it's a nice splash of variety, color and fun. Sometimes it's an inconvenience, frustration and source of indecisiveness. Most of the time it's just another inconsistent ruleset further complicating my life... but today I feel good about it. Forgive the langua...

I don't know about the ND/NT differences, but I can say that at least in the gay and bisexual communities there are a lot of submissive/switch oriented people. I personally have a lot kinks, and I'm a switch, but the mommy/daddy kink isn't one of my interests. Submissive, yes, but there are many dif...

Mindfulness is BS, to me. ...I have tried so hard to meditate, but it never does anything for me. Growing up meditation actually made no sense to me. Nothing anyone told me or that I read clarified it for me. I even went around looking for english books on Buddhism, and even that didn't help. I tho...
