Abstract

This study investigated the characteristics, drug use and sexual risk behaviors of drug-using male sex workers (MSW) in Houston, Texas, USA. A total of 399 MSW had completed a survey of their behavior in the previous 30 days, and reported more than 20 000 sex partners, of whom approximately 2000 were female. Although there were some differences in risk patterns by sexual orientation, heterosexual and bisexual men are not at higher risk because of condom non-use.
