It varies by person.

Some Aspies have astronomical sex drives, while others are what they call "asexual", which means no sex drive at all.

I think mine's relatively high although I usually use the term libido because it isn't just about the sex but the strong physical and mental attractions I feel toward people....not sure if it's exclusive to the sex drive. In fact this question's always puzzled me because it isn't like I want to automatically have sex with someone I find attractive.... :?

I think mine is low....

I dunno, while I feel strongly attracted by girls , as an adult who remained virgin I never felt the need to seek for paid sex or one night stands, which is abnormal.

Actually that is quite commendable. You can't connect with someone you paid for sex.

Besides, there's too many complications with STD's and what not...

I prefer making sweet passionate love to my hand... :P

I'm really horny a lot but I also want intimacy so I wouldn't pay anyone to have sex with them ever,

so masturbating is the answer right now :P

Judging from this board, most AS people seem to be represented at the extremes of sexuality.

I had to break off my last relationship (she was an Aspie as well) because she was asexual, and my sex drive is through the roof.

I have a friend who says he's a "asexual satyromaniac". Even after he explained it, I just don't understand how that's possible, especially since he's a virgin...

I'm insatiable, but I'm very selective about my mates. I don't seem to be sexually attracted to the same types of people most neurotypicals are. Most people look the same to me, even so-called "beautiful people", so I only find people with unique physical features and interesting personalities attractive. I'd rather be single than have a one-night stand. I've thought about doing the whole casual sex thing, but I don't think I have the detachment to pull it off.

Sometimes, even ideas or objects (like a hot new MacBook Pro :heart:) get me aroused...

I think it varies not only from person to person but also what stage of life you're at and what people you have in your life. My sex drive has been all over the place over the years. From nearly non existant to being crazy high. Right now, I'm not quite crazy high but I'm pretty darn close. Although it's at a level that I'm happy with. Doesn't mean I'm gettin any, but that's a whole other issue. :wink:

@TS: you can't make a general statement for all aspies. it's a spectrum... just as the NT are on a spectrum.

but to answer your poll according my personal opinion:

i have a very high sex drive.. and enjoy it the tantra way off course. ;-)

A lot of Aspie males are lifetime virgins -- so they are obsessed with sex and porn.
