I don't know of any promiscuous aspies and I probably know more aspies than the average person.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
I would guess this the case with most aspies. I think it would be possible to have some aspies that were promiscuous. Especially if its from not grasping the acceptable social cues involves in sexual relations and therefore overdoing it sexually.
5w6 or 9w1 sp/so/sx, I think
I have asperger's (professionally diagnosed) and I would never have any kind of sex outside of marriage, I have zero interest in that.

I think my sex drive is average, though I am still a virgin, so I can't say that with any first-hand experience to back it up haha. If I was married, I think I'd want to do it once a day, maybe twice...who knows, maybe I'll get to find out someday. One thing is for sure though, I would never get tired of it lol! Not sure how to answer your second question, I can't think of any specific correlation.

Yeah, that is one possibility, out of at least several I can think of.
I know this one guy who may or may not have had Asperger's. He flirted with a lot of girls (wasn't successful), but he was never the, uh, player type, so to speak. As far as I know, he has a girlfriend now, but probably won't do anything until, like, marriage, or something.
I dunno, I've met a few promiscuous gay guys who I'm pretty sure were Aspie. There's a lot less social skill needed when it's two guys, and for any Aspie's who aren't majorly turned off by physical interaction, well, you really can just go up and say "I like you, let's have sex." Boom.
One guy I met it wasn't working out too well for He was too socially awkward to click with any decent crowd and in the 20 minutes that I drank a beer with him and gave his dick a few tugs, he told me all the great things his "friends" had done from giving him alcohol poisoning to covering his face with magic marker.
