Abstract

This study evaluated differences in sexual behavior and risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among men who have sex with men (MSM) who met their partners on-line and those who did not. A self-administered questionnaire on sexual behavior was offered to a convenience sample of patients seeking public STD services. Thirty-two percent of MSM patients reported meeting a sexual partner over the Internet in the past year. MSM with on-line partners were younger, more likely to report sex with an HIV-positive person in the last year, and more likely to report casual partners in the last yearcompared with MSM with only off-line partners. HIV-negative MSM with on-line partners were more likely than HIV-negative MSM with only off-line partners to have received money or drugs for sex in the past year and to report sex with an HIV-positive partner in the past year. Although meeting partners on the Internet was common and associated with increased risk for STDs inMSM, it also presents new untapped opportunities for on-line health promotion and disease prevention.
