Abstract: All evidence to date indicates that African Americans and Latinos are disproportionately affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States. The primary mode of transmission and risk factor is men who have sex with men (MSM). Within the MSM of color population, there are a significant number of men who have sex with both men and with women (MSM/W), yet who do not identify as bisexual or gay. Due to its hidden nature, this sub-population of MSM faces much greater HIV risk. This paper presents data and findings from a Rapid Assessment and Response Evaluation (RARE) project conducted in San Diego with a multi-ethnic sample of MSM and MSM/W. The paper addresses limitations in HIV prevention efforts by discussing the connections between and impact of 1) contextual structural and cultural factors; 2) individual psychological and demographic characteristics of MSM and MSM/W of color, and 3) prevention strategies targeting MSM of color. The role of negative cultural attitudes about sex and HIV/AIDS, self-esteem, substance use and lack of general knowledge about HIV/AIDS and HIV interventions are explored. The paper concludes by making programmatic and policy recommendations to improve HIV prevention efforts for MSM and MSM/W of color.

Abstract: Lad magazines present a view of men that privileges sexual variety rather than intimacy, that focuses on male sexual pleasure as the most important outcome, and that is strongly ambivalent about romantic relationships as the context for sex. The present study explores the relationships between reading Lad magazines and the endorsement of beliefs and attitudes that are consistent with their content as well as the way men view themselves sexually. Two surveys of male undergraduates (n = 91 and 68, respectively) are employed. The findings indicate a consistent relationship between reading Lad magazines and endorsement of permissive sexual attitudes independent of actual sexual behavior and status. Reading Lad magazines is also associated with expectations of greater sexual variety and a more aggressive sexual self-schema. Reading pornographic magazines is also found to be associated with permissive attitudes and expectations of greater sexual variety.

Abstract: On the website for a popular MSM (men-who-have-sex-with-men) pornography studio is an advertisement for its video ‘SLAMMED’—‘an honest and true record of lawless 21st century man-sex: real, raw and straight to the point’. The terms ‘slammed’ and ‘to the point’ are used among MSM drug users to refer to injecting drugs such as methamphetamine (in the U.S.) and/or mephedrone and MDMA (in the U.K. and Europe). On the studio’s website is a link to its virtual social network where visitors can view thousands of ‘amateur’ user-uploaded MSM videos depicting sexualised scenes of men engaged in the these and other drug behaviours.
Cultural criminologists hold that images of crime can be as real as crime itself. While drug-themed pornography may not depict ‘true’ drug use, such depictions nonetheless represent dimensions of gay social life that produce consequences; shape attitudes and policy; generate fear, avoidance and pleasure; and alter the lives of those involved. This paper explores the emergence of MSM drug pornography and its impact on drug-sharing virtual social networks as indicative of a new trend in the ‘culture industry’—in this case, the commodification of transgressive (and in many cases, illegal) MSM drug-related behaviours.

Abstract: This article investigates the effect of marriage on male earnings through an analysis of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (1979-2010). Unlike prior research, this article does not assume that marriage affects men who earn a lot the same way that it affects men who earn little. The analysis shows that low-earning men marry around a time in their lives when they do particularly well: their earnings rise before they marry, peak around the fourth year, and then decline. In contrast, among high-earning men, earnings grow after and not before they marry. Recent scholarship questions the direction of causation between marriage and earnings because the average man’s earnings begin to rise shortly before marriage. However, the evidence that selection into marriage rather than effects of marriage explain men’s marriage premium pertains not to all but a subset of men – those at the bottom of the earnings distribution – a group of men also less likely to marry and remain married. For men higher in the distribution, marriage elevates earnings. Thus, ironically, marriage may have a causal effect on male earnings – just not on the earnings of the poor men on whom social scientists and policymakers focus most of their concern about the retreat from marriage. Marriage reinforces preexisting male earnings inequality, by increasing the distance between men at the bottom and top of the distribution. Thus, decreasing socioeconomic disparities in marriage rates will not decrease male earnings inequality—unless by a process which discourages high-earning men from marrying.
