This study sought to determine the frequency and types of sexual behavior among patients with schizophrenia and to assess the behavior with respector risk of HIV infection.
Ninety-five inpatients and outpatients with a research diagnosis of schizophrenia underwent a series of face-to-face interviews to determine their sexual activity and correlate it with demographic characteristics, psychopathology, and medication side effects.
Forty-four percent of the patients had been sexually active in the preceding 6 months, and 62% of these had had multiple partners.
Sexual activity was associated with greater general psychopathology.
