Authors:
Heidi Ann Lyons

Int J Sex Health 2017 5;29(1):32-47. Epub 2016 Oct 5.

Department of Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work, and Criminal Justice, Oakland University, Rochester, MI.

Casual sex is common during the emerging adult life course stage, but little research has taken a person-centered approach to investigate if casual sexual behavior influences STI rates. Using a nationally representative sample and latent class analysis, results showed three distinctive latent classes. Abstainers were the least likely to have an STI, followed by the casual sex experienced, and then the casual sex risk-takers. Read More

Family relationships and sexual orientation disclosure to family by gay and bisexual men in Jamaica.

Int J Sex Health 2016 14;28(4):306-317. Epub 2016 Sep 14.

Department of Child & Adolescent Health, Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of the West Indies, Mona, Kingston 7, Jamaica.

Gay and bisexual men in Jamaica encounter stigma and discrimination due to criminalization of and negative attitudes towards same-sex sexuality. Disclosure of sexual orientation may be self-affirming, but could increase exposure to negative responses and stressors. Outcomes of an online survey among 110 gay and bisexual Jamaican men ages 18 to 56 years suggest that disclosure to family is affected by level of economic independence. Read More

Achieving the optimal vaginal state: using vaginal products and study gels in Uganda, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.

Int J Sex Health 2017 27;29(3):247-257. Epub 2017 Mar 27.

Women's Global Health Imperative, RTI International, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Preferences and practices related to the vaginal condition have implications for the use of vaginal HIV prevention products. We used qualitative methods to explore narratives relating to the vaginal state amongst women in South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe who had previously participated in a biomedical HIV prevention trial. We investigated women's behaviours related to optimising the vaginal state, experiences and perceptions of the gel's effect on the vaginal state and on penile-vaginal intercourse, women's narratives on male partner perceptions, and how preferences relating to the vaginal state may have interfered with gel use.

Vaginal and Oral Sex Initiation Timing: A Focus on Gender and Race/Ethnicity.

Int J Sex Health 2015 Jul 9;27(3):351-367. Epub 2015 Mar 9.

Objectives: Most previous studies on sexual initiation timing have examined its effects on a variety of subsequent outcomes without first examining the correlates and predictors of these timing categories. Studies that do exist often do not utilize samples through young adulthood, leading to a misclassified set of sexual timing categories. In addition, the literature does not adequately address the issues of oral sex timing. Read More

The Use of the Internet to Meet Sexual Partners: A Comparison of Non-Heterosexually-Identified Men with Heterosexually-Identified Men and Women.

Int J Sex Health 2015;27(1):1-15

George Washington University, Department of Psychology.

In 2008, we conducted online interviews with 65 self-identified adult heterosexual men and women and gay/bisexual men to explore perceptions and experiences with meeting people online. Reasons for meeting people online, desired partner characteristics, and the process of connecting for sex paralleled those observed in real-life; but the Internet allowed people to identify more partners and specific partner characteristics. "Background checks" of online partners, even though often believed to be false, increased familiarity and trust leading to reduced perceived need for condom use. Read More

The relationship between use of sexually explicit media and sexual risk behavior in men who have sex with men: exploring the mediating effects of sexual self-esteem and condom use self-efficacy.

Int J Sex Health 2014 Feb;26(1):13-24

Division of Epidemiology and Community Health, University of Minnesota School of Public Health, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

This study tests the following three hypotheses: 1) there is a direct association between consumption of sexually explicit media (SEM) depicting non-condom use and STI-related sexual risk behavior among men who have sex with men (MSM), 2) The association between SEM consumption and STI-related sexual risk behavior is mediated by men's sexual self-esteem, and 3) the relationship between SEM consumption and sexual risk behavior is mediated by condom use self-efficacy. A cross-sectional, Internet-based survey on exposure to SEM and sexual behavior of 1,391 MSM in the USA was conducted in 2011. The results confirmed hypothesis 1 and 3 while hypothesis 2 was rejected. Read More

Friends Research Institute, Inc., Los Angeles, California, USA ; Integrated Substance Abuse Programs, Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Men who have sex with men, men who have sex with men and women, and transgender women are at high risk for HIV infection. This study seeks to clarify which known HIV risk factors (partner type, sex location, serodiscordance, multiple sex partners, substance use during sex) contribute to engagement in high-risk (unprotected receptive anal) sex in each population. Data collected from June 2005 through June 2008 indicate all three populations display different HIV sexual risk profiles. Read More

The Influence of Trauma History and Relationship Power on Latinas' Sexual Risk for HIV/STIs.

Int J Sex Health 2011 ;23(2):111-119

Department of Psychology, University of Memphis, Memphis, TN.

A community sample of Latinas completed surveys that included measures of sexual abuse and intimate partner violence history, relationship power, negotiating power regarding condom use, perceived HIV/STI risk of sexual partner, and sexual behavior. Over half of the women reported a history of intimate partner violence in the past year and/or sexual abuse in their lifetime. Intimate partner violence was correlated with lower overall sexual relationship power scores, while sexual abuse was correlated with lower condom use negotiating power. Read More

Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of the West Indies, Mona, Kingston 7, Jamaica.

This study examined the prevalence of Axis I disorders and associated risk factors in a sample of sexual minority men and women in Jamaica, a country that is widely known for its high societal rejection of homosexuality. Poor relationships with family, negative or abusive experiences related to one's sexual orientation, and greater openness about one's sexual orientation were independent risk factors for Axis I disorders. Prevention of mental disorders in sexual minorities in Jamaica should focus on rebuilding family support and promoting social acceptance of sexual minorities. Read More

The Sexuality of Childhood Sexual Abuse Survivors.

Int J Sex Health 2009 Jan;21(1):46-60

Women's Health, College of Nursing, Kent State University, Kent, OH.

In this grounded theory study, a theoretical framework that depicts the process by which childhood sexual abuse (CSA) influences the sexuality of women and men survivors was constructed. Data were drawn from interview transcripts of 95 men and women who experienced CSA. Using constant comparison analysis, the researchers determined that the central phenomenon of the data was a process labeled Determining My Sexual Being, in which survivors moved from grappling with questions related to the nature, cause, and sexual effects of the abuse to laying claim to their own sexuality.

California State University, Los Angeles.

Few researchers of Internet sexual exploration have systematically compared variance of use across sexual orientations, with even fewer surveying bisexual respondents. In 2004, 15,246 individuals responded to an online survey of their use of Internet personals and adult websites. Gay men, lesbians, and bisexuals (GLBs) were more likely than heterosexuals to have exchanged correspondence, met others offline, and had sex with someone they met through personal ads. Read More
