This article describes the self-reported use of substances, participation in unprotected intercourse and differences in sexual risk-taking behavior with state of inebriation among a group of aboriginal (First Nations) people in Ontario.
And, in so doing, attempts to answer some of the questions about the association between the use of alcohol and sexual risk taking in this population.
The project was developed in a partnership between an aboriginal steering committee and university researchers.
Data were collected via interview from 658 randomly selected status First Nations people living within 11 re-reserve communities in the province.
Of the 426 individuals included in the within subject analysis 9.6% reported variation in their participation in sex, 13.8% variation in their participation in intercourse and 10.3% variation in their participation in unprotected intercourse with inebriation.
An examination of individual behavior across « sober » and « drunk or high » states showed that there were almost equal proportions of respondents who only participated in unsafe sex when sober and respondents who only participated in unsafe sex when drunk or high.
Where significant differences occurred, individuals were more likely to report a shift towards no sex or no intercourse with inebriation, not towards unprotected intercourse. (...)
