The Effects of Gay Sexually Explicit Media on the HIV Risk Behavior of Men Who Have Sex with Men

The Effects of Gay Sexually Explicit Media on the HIV Risk Behavior of Men Who Have Sex with Men | Health, HIV & Addiction Topics in the LGBT Community | Scoop.it

"While most men who have sex with men (MSM) consume sexually explicit media (SEM) without problems—including without HIV risk—for a small subgroup of high consumers, our formative research and these results both suggest their behavior may be experienced as problematic. Clinically, it would be helpful to establish what relationship, if any, exists between very high SEM consumption and compulsive sexual behavior, to identify whether the SEM use is compulsive in itself, and then to compare the behavior and characteristics of MSM with and withour compulsive SEM use."
