This book is a major empirical study of sexual behaviour in the UK. It is based on the findings of project SIGMA - whch is the major British initiative in the AIDS field, funded by the Department of Health and the Medical Research Council. Using in-depth qualitative analysis, the authors have developed new theories of sexuality. They have collected detailed information from over 1000 men in high-risk categories and examined their behavioural changes in response to HIV/AIDS over a four year period 1987-1991. The book presents the latest research on knowledge of HIV, attitudes to AIDS and the uptake of safer sex practices. It reports on the sexual lives of gay men in England and Wales against the backdrop of the HIV epidemic.
