  1. Sexual HIV risk among gay and bisexual male methamphetamine abusers.

    Article - En anglais

    The current report examined HIV-related high risk sexual behaviors among a small sample of gay and bisexual male methamphetamine abusers in Los Angeles.

    Participants were 16 methamphet-amine-abusing or - dependent gay or bisexual males who participated in a treatment demonstration project between 1989 and 1993.

    All participants completed the NIDA/WAVE survey, a detailed inventory of HIV-related risk behaviors.

    Findings indicate a strong connection between methamphetamine abuse and high-risk sexual behavior.

    For the 12 months prior to treatment 62.5% of participants reported having anal insertive sex without a condom, and 56.3% reported having sex with someone who had HIV Drug use before or during sex, measured on a 5-point Likert scale, was frequent (M=4.27, SD=0.7).

    Implications for treatment of gay and bisexual male methamphetamine abusers and prevention of HIV among this population are discussed.
