0 Reviews
The most extensive and up-to-date account of gay men's sexual behaviour, drawing together data from the innovative 'sexual diaries' research conducted by Project SIGMA with some 1000 men over seven years. Detailed analysis of sexual encounters and sex sessions documented by the diarists shed new light on received accounts of gay men's responses to the threat of AIDS.
The book concludes with a far-reaching and insightful analysis of the prevalence of highest-risk behaviour and the extent to which this is practised by different individuals. Throughout the text the perspective is that of the men themselves, with generous quotations from their diaries in addition to interprative commentary with graphics and figures.
