ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.00994
AbstractIn conjunction with 'Take Control', a project set up by the Queensland AIDS Council (QuAC) and the Brisbane Gay and Lesbian Health Service (GLHS), research was undertaken on the sexual experiences and attitudes of gay and bisexual men in Brisbane. This particular study, conducted in relation with an anonymous HIV testing service provided by the Take Control project, foccussed on the safe sex strategies adopted by gay men in response to the current HIV epidemic and their attitudes to HIV/AIDS. Participants in the study were asked about their sexuality (e.g. were they exclusively or mainly homosexual); the types of sexual practices they had engaged in with regular and/or casual partners; their perceived risk at becoming infected with the HIV virus, attitudes to HIV/AIDS; the long-term status of current and past relationships; the importance of monogamy in a long-term relationship; safe sex strategies employed by the respondent and those they preferred; the sexual attitudes of their gay and bisexual friends; how often they had refused to have sex in a situation they considered risky of infection; and if they had asked previous partners about experiences associated with HIV transmission. Background variables included age, residence, employment status and education.
