Abstract

Anal sex role patterns and correlates during unprotected anal sex were examined longitudinally among HIV-negative men who have sex with men. Nearly 9.6% were exclusively receptive, 16.7% exclusively insertive, and 63.0% versatile. Versatility was more likely with primary and HIV-negative/unknown status partners and among younger men and substance users but less likely among Blacks and with higher number of partners. Exclusively receptive role was more likely with HIV-negative/unknown status partners and among younger men and substance users but less likely with higher number of partners. Examining anal sex role patterns helps understand the factors that drive the epidemic among men who have sex with men.
