Ashley is a woman diagnosed along the autism spectrum who would like to open a conversation about autism and alternative monogamy. She has repressed sexual feelings for along time and tried to be asexual. Through help from some key mentors, she learned how to relate with people and started to explore her sexuality. It is through her marriage and listening to Life on the Swingset that she has become more adventurous and open to alternative sexual lifestyles. She believes that sexual growth among those with autism is important, even if it is to come to the conclusion that they wish to be asexual. She would like to like to empower those with autism to define love and sex on their own terms, in a world where the word autism and sex are typically considered non-existent.
