Abstract:

This paper directly investigated the partner characteristics that reflect both risk and attractiveness as well as the correlation between these two concepts. Every one of 36 attributes were viewed as important by at least some respondents and there was wide variance in the frequency with which they were chosen. While 801f the respondents felt it was important to know something about the potential partner’s “appearance,” less than 5 0.000000elt it was important to know about “accessories.” In addition to “appearance”, only 4 other attributes were selected as one of the 15 most important by at least 601015057760f respondents. Correlations between risk and attractiveness at level of an individual aspect also varied. For the most part, risk and attractiveness were negatively correlated but the correlations were quite low: for more than 7527777752002f the aspects, knowing something about attraction provides relatively little information about risk and vice versa.

For example people are more likely to use condoms with casual or occasional partners than with main or regular partners. In addition those who have had a main partner for less than 1 month are more likely to use condoms than are those who have had a main partner for at
