Background Sexual acquisition of HIV is influenced by choice of partner, sex act, and condom use. However, current risk-reduction strategies focus mainly on condom use. Goal To estimate the contribution of choice of partner, sex act, and condom use on the per-act relative and absolute risks for HIV infection. Study Design Per-act relative risk for HIV infection was calculated with use of estimates of HIV prevalence, risk of condom failure, HIV test accuracy, and per-act risk of HIV transmission… Expand
Condom Effectiveness for HIV Prevention by Consistency of Use Among Men Who Have Sex With Men in the United States
TLDR
Estimates of male condom effectiveness during anal sex among men who have sex with men (MSM) are useful for counseling efforts and for modeling the impact and comparative effectiveness of condoms and other prevention methods used by MSM. Expand
Per-partner condom effectiveness against HIV for men who have sex with men
TLDR
The increase in odds of new HIV infection per HIV-positive partner for receptive anal intercourse was reduced by 91% for each partner with whom condoms were always used. Expand
Use of a Rapid HIV Home Test to Screen Sexual Partners: An Evaluation of its Possible Use and Relative Risk
TLDR
If MSM engage in AI without condoms following a non-reactive HT result, they have lower chances of becoming infected by someone still in the window period than by following heuristics and using condoms inconsistently. Expand
The intent and practice of condom use among HIV-positive men who have sex with men in Japan.
TLDR
Evaluation of the intent and practice of condom use among Japanese HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM) found willingness to protect sexual partners from HIV infection was strongly related not only to the intent but also to the practice. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of condom use among sexually active men who have sex with men in the United States: findings from the National Survey of Family Growth, 2002, 2006-10 and 2011-13.
BACKGROUND Men who have sex with men (MSM) are disproportionately at risk of contracting HIV and other sexually transmissible infections (STIs). Correct and consistent condom use is the mostExpand
HIV Transmission among Men Who Have Sex with Men due to Condom Failure
TLDR
The proportion of HIV infections related to condom failure appears substantial and higher than previously thought and is unlikely to stem the tide of HIV infection among men who have sex with men in Ontario. Expand
The effectiveness of individual-, group-, and community-level HIV behavioral risk-reduction interventions for adult men who have sex with men: a systematic review.
TLDR
Results form the basis for recommendations by the Task Force on Community Preventive Services on the use of these interventions, which concluded that group- and community-level HIV behavioral interventions for adult MSM are not only cost effective but also result in actual cost savings. Expand
Perceived risk and condomless sex practice with commercial and non-commercial sexual partners of male migrant sex workers in London, UK
Background: Since the emergence of HIV and the AIDS pandemic, the majority of risk-reduction interventions have been centred on the use of condoms in sex workers. Methods: This qualitative studyExpand
The Impact of Sexual Behaviours, Risk Perceptions and the Criminalization of HIV Non-Disclosure on HIV Transmission among HIV-Negative and HIV-Positive Men Who Have Sex With Men in Toronto
TLDR
Perceived HIV risk increased significantly as condom use with an HIV-positive regular partner decreased, however, perceived HIV risk was not associated with condoms use with casual partners or HIV unknown status regular partners, even though these behaviours could be considered risky. Expand
Perceived risk and condomless sex practice with commercial and non-commercial sexual partners of male migrant sex workers in London, UK [version 1; peer review: 1 approved with reservations]
Background: Since the emergence of HIV and the AIDS pandemic, the majority of risk-reduction interventions have been centred on the use of condoms in sex workers. Methods: This qualitative studyExpand

Infectiousness of HIV between male homosexual partners.
TLDR
To estimate the risk of transmission of HIV per receptive anal sexual contact, 329 homosexually-active men were enrolled into a study and a binomial model was fit to data obtained in the first visit. Expand
Effectiveness of condoms in preventing HIV transmission.
TLDR
A reexamination of HIV seroconversion studies suggests that condoms are 90 to 95% effective when used consistently, and consistent condom users are 10 to 20 times less likely to become infected when exposed to the virus than are inconsistent or non-users. Expand
The effectiveness of condoms in reducing heterosexual transmission of HIV.
TLDR
The condom's efficacy at reducing heterosexual transmission may be comparable to or slightly lower than its effectiveness at preventing pregnancy, with a range depending upon the incidence among condom nonusers. Expand
Man-to-woman sexual transmission of HIV: longitudinal study of 343 steady partners of infected men.
TLDR
A cohort of 343 seronegative women, stable, monogamous partners of infected men whose only risk of acquiring HIV was sexual exposure to the infected partner, followed to study incidence and risk factors of heterosexually transmitted HIV infection. Expand
A meta-analysis of condom effectiveness in reducing sexually transmitted HIV.
TLDR
The study design had a methodological flaw however which negates the conclusion that condoms should be a secondary strategy in HIV prevention and stresses the importance of consistent and correct condom use. Expand
Transmission of HIV to heterosexual partners of infected men and women.
TLDR
Biological factors such as variability in infectivity of the index case and susceptibility of the contact, as well as behavioural variables may be important in determining transmission. Expand
The real problem with male condoms is nonuse.
TLDR
Based on the studies conducted on STD/HIV transmission, a frequently listed cause of condom failure was the type of condom being used during sexual intercourse and the user's failure to properly use the condom. Expand
A Longitudinal Study of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Transmission by Heterosexual Partners
TLDR
A prospective study of HIV-negative subjects whose only risk of HIV infection was a stable heterosexual relationship with an HIV-infected partner, finding that only 124 couples who continued to have sexual relations for more than three months after enrollment in the study, used condoms consistently for vaginal and anal intercourse.

TLDR
Several factors which potentiate the risk of transmission through unprotected vaginal intercourse have been identified and knowledge of these factors could be helpful for counselling patients infected with HIV and their sexual partners. Expand
Probability of heterosexual transmission of HIV: relationship to the number of unprotected sexual contacts. European Study Group in Heterosexual Transmission of HIV.
TLDR
The results suggest that the association between the number of unprotected sexual contacts and the probability of infection is weak and highly inconsistent with constant per-contact infectivity, and estimates based on partner study data under the hypothesis of constant infectivity can be highly misleading at a public health level.
