Condomless Sex Rises Among Gay Men


Perry N. Halkitis, PhD, MPH, a professor of applied psychology, public health and medicine at New York University who researches sexual risk taking among MSM, is dismissive of the popular notion that younger MSM are simply blasé about the risks of sex without a condom. “That’s what old gay men say,” he notes.  Reflecting on a generation confronted, for example, by unique economic challenges their forebearers did not have to face, Halkitis adds: “It is clear to me that while young men don’t want to get HIV—they’re afraid of HIV—it is not their primary problem.”
