HIV Risk Associated With Gay Bathhouses and Sex Clubs: Findings From Two Seattle Surveys of Factors Related to HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections
October 13, 2009
In the current research, the authors studied the HIV risk behaviors of patrons of the three commercial sex establishments for men in Seattle. They conducted cross-sectional, observational surveys in 2004 and 2006 by use of time-venue cluster sampling with probability proportional to size. The surveys were anonymous and self-reported. The authors analyzed the 2004 data to identify patron characteristics and predictors of risk behaviors, and they compared the two survey populations.
