  1. Maintenance of open gay relationships: some strategies for protection against HIV.

    Article - En anglais

    The role of sexual exclusivity (monogamy) in relation to HIV, and the use of rule making in non-exclusive (open) relationships, are discussed.

    Data from interviews with 387 homosexually active men are presented.

    The most common sexual/relational configuration amongst these men is that of open relationships.

    Sexual non-exclusivity was found to be associated with longer relationships, and a greater age difference between partners.

    The strategies some of these men are using to maintain sexually non-exclusive relationships are outlined.

    These rules pertain both to interpersonal dynamics and HIV prevention.

    Differing epidemiological significance of the rules and some implications for health education are discussed.
