Anonymous Sex and HIV Risk among Men Using the Internet to Find Unprotected Sex Partners

Abstract:

This 2008-2009 study examines anonymous sex in a national random sample of 332 MSM who specifically use the internet to identify other men with whom they can engage in unprotected sex. Four research questions were examined: (1) How prevalent is anonymous sex in this population? (2) How is involvement in anonymous sex related to the practice of other HIV-related risk practices? (3) What factors differentiate men who recently engaged in anonymous sex from those who do not? (4) Among men who reported recent involvement in anonymous sex, what factors differentiate those who did this a lot from those who did not do it as much?
Results: Most of the men liked anonymous sex, and more than half engaged in the behavior during the month prior to interview. Involvement in anonymous sex was associated with involvement in a variety of HIV-related risk practices. Four factors were associated with having anonymous sex: (1) being HIV-positive, (2) answering all of the HIV-related knowledge questions correctly, (3) deriving greater enjoyment from having sex in public places, and (4) greater impulsivity. Seven factors were associated with greater versus lesser involvement in anonymous sex among those practicing the behavior: (1) being involved in a relationship with a long-term partner, (2) liking to have sex in public venues, (3) using bareback-oriented websites to identify sex partners, (4) greater impulsivity, (5) low level of condom use self-efficacy, (6) greater knowledge about HIV/AIDS, and either (7a) severe childhood maltreatment or (7b) Caucasian race.
