Teen girls with pdd and BOYS!!

I have a very attractive 13yr old (if I may say so) diagnosed PDD-NOS. The problem is she is hugely attracted to the opposite sex and acts on it. The moment she sees a boy she tries to get his attention by teasing him...
I try to tell her over and over again this is not appropriate but it is almost like something gets to the better of her when boys/men are around.
How do I gently reel her in when boys/men are around? How can I explain to her she might get the wrong attention?
Please advise, other than this new challenge she is a sweet heart.

I would suggest to keep redirecting her behavior as you have been. The hormones she's experiencing I'm sure are throwing her for a loop. Until it seems that she is starting to understand and be able to display appropriate interactions it may be a good idea to make sure she's not left alone with males.
