Abstract
The INSIGHT case-control study identified serodiscordant unprotected anal intercourse as the primary risk factor for HIV infection in gay men in England. The qualitative study findings indicate a relationship between sexual and emotional needs and risk perceptions. The risk of unfilled sexual or emotional needs is evaluated against the potential seriousness of HIV. Perceived vulnerability to HIV infection is lessened by repeat HIV negative test results.
