Abstract

This study of 576 gay men and men who have sex with men examined the predictive value of peer norms, self-efficacy, stigma, social support, age, and recreational drug use on high-risk sexual behavior that enables human immunodeficiency virus transmission. A bivariate analysis found each of these factors significant. A discriminant function analysis revealed that significant predictors of high-risk sexual behavior included low self-efficacy and low outcome expectancy with regard to successfully using a condom, disclosing infection status, and negotiating safer sex and low peer norms for safer sex. Counseling implications for this population are discussed.
