About the Book

Objectives. To describe stressful relationship events and determine their impact on high-risk sex among gay and bisexual men.Methods. Secondary data analysis was conducted using a sub-sample of 208 HIV-positive and HIV-negative men participating in a longitudinal open-cohort. Bivariate and multivariate analytical techniques were used.Discussion. Couples who experience relationship stress may be at risk for HIV transmission given that they are more likely to engage in high-risk sex. Prevention efforts should take these broader social and psychological issues into account.Results. Thirty-six percent experienced a stressful relationship event within a six-month period including the ending of a romantic relationship (23%), increased arguments with a partner (21%), and finding out a partner's affair (7%). HIV-negative men, illicit drug users, and men who experienced increased arguments were more likely to engage in unprotected intercourse with their partners. The impact of stressful relationship events on high-risk sex was greater in younger men.
