Developmental investigation of age at sexual debut and subsequent sexual risk behaviours: a study of high-risk young black males 
Richard Crosby, Angelica Geter, JaNelle Ricks, Jamal Jones and Laura F. Salazar

Early age of sexual debut may be a mediating variable rather than a causal explanation for sexual risk behaviours among young Black males residing in the Southern United States.

Rate of repeat diagnoses in men who have sex with men for Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae: a retrospective cohort study 
Tess Marinelli, Eric P. F. Chow, Jane Tomnay, Glenda Fehler, Catriona S. Bradshaw, Marcus Y. Chen, Dana S. Forcey and Christopher K. Fairley

Substantial rises in sexually transmissible infections are occurring among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Australia. This retrospective cohort study of MSM attending a large, public sexual health clinic in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia was conducted to investigate: (i) rate of repeat diagnosis of chlamydia and gonorrhoea among MSM; and (ii) the rate ratio of gonorrhoea and chlamydia among re-infected MSM in comparison with the background clinic incidence of diagnoses.

Influence of stigma and homophobia on mental health and on the uptake of HIV/sexually transmissible infection services for Cameroonian men who have sex with men 
Charles W. Cange, Matthew LeBreton, Serge Billong, Karen Saylors, Ubald Tamoufe, Erin Papworth, Yves Yomb and Stefan Baral

This study investigates the effect of stigma, discrimination and alienation on Cameroonian men who have sex with men's (MSM) engagement of the HIV treatment cascade. Using qualitative interviews, Cameroonian MSM were asked to describe MSM knowledge of existing HIV-related services in public and MSM-focussed non-governmental organisation clinics. Most participants observed limited clinical and cultural competency of public clinic staff. MSM recounted their alienation greatly discouraged them from seeking HIV prevention, treatment and care services. A broader stigma-reduction intervention for Cameroonian healthcare workers may increase the uptake of HIV prevention, treatment and care among MSM.

Acceptance of and experiences utilising expedited partner therapy among African-American juvenile girls 
JaNelle M. Ricks, Andrea L. Swartzendruber, Jessica M. Sales, Lorin S. Boyce, Ralph J. DiClemente and Eve Rose

Acceptance of and experiences utilising expedited partner therapy for chlamydia and gonorrhoea treatment among recently detained African-American girls was described. Results of this mixed methods study demonstrated that acceptance was associated with risky sexual behaviours. Motivation of girls to accept expedited partner therapy was influenced by personal prosocial beliefs.

Online self-management for gay men living with HIV: a pilot study 
Tanya Millard, Karalyn McDonald, Sonya Girdler, Sean Slavin and Julian Elliot

This paper reports on the findings of the pilot phase of the Positive Outlook Study. The program was based on self-efficacy theory and used a self-management approach to enhance participants’ skills, confidence and ability to manage the psychosocial aspects of HIV in their daily lives. Two pilot studies were conducted; an initial feasibility study followed by a pilot randomised controlled study. The findings indicate the feasiblity and acceptibbility of the program among gay men living with HIV and justify the need for a further study with a larger sample size.

A second peak in genital warts in later life suggests that behavioural factors explain a second peak in human papillomavirus prevalence in older women 
Eric P. F. Chow and Christopher K. Fairley

We explore the age-based pattern of genital warts among Australian women who have not been vaccinated for human papillomavirus (HPV). The age-based pattern of genital warts is consistent with the pattern of any HPV prevalence, suggesting that behavioural factors may explain the changes in HPV occurrence.

Analysis of direct-to-consumer marketed Chlamydia trachomatis diagnostic tests in Norway 
Nils Reinton, Stig Ove Hjelmevoll, Håkon Håheim, Kjersti Garstad, Lisa Therese Mørch-Reiersen and Amir Moghaddam

Testing for Chlamydia trachomatis is free and readily available through public health services in Norway. Nevertheless, an internet company and a pharmacy chain sell home sampling C. trachomatis tests to consumers. Analysis from the service laboratory that performs the laboratory tests for the internet company and the pharmacy chain shows that prevalence of C. trachomatis in these two populations is higher than populations that are tested through primary physicians and sexually transmissible infection clinics.

Improving public health surveillance of chlamydia: analysis of population-level positivity trends 
Nicola Stephens, David Coleman, Kelly A. Shaw, Maree O'Sullivan and Alison Venn

Chlamydia remains Australia’s most frequently notified communicable disease, however interpretation of notification data is difficult without knowledge of the testing patterns in the whole population. In this study, all Tasmanian chlamydia laboratory tests and notification data from 2001 to 2010 were compared. Notifications, tests and positivity increased, most significantly in males and females aged 15 to 29 years. After allowing for testing effort, an increase in chlamydia infections in young people was found.

Reasons for delays in treatment of bacterial sexually transmissible infections in remote Aboriginal communities in Australia: a qualitative study of healthcentre staff 
Belinda Hengel, Lisa Maher, Linda Garton, James Ward, Alice Rumbold, Debbie Taylor-Thomson, Bronwyn Silver, Skye McGregor, Amalie Dyda, Janet Knox, John Kaldor, Rebecca Guy and

Remote Australian Aboriginal communities experience high rates of bacterial sexually transmissible infections (STIs). To control the transmission and decrease the risk of complications, frequent STI testing combined with timely treatment is required, yet significant delays in treatment have been reported. As part of the STI in Remote communities, Improved and Enhanced Primary Health Care (STRIVE) project; a large cluster randomised controlled trial of a sexual health quality improvement program, qualitative research was conducted to investigate health centre staff’s perceived barriers to providing timely treatment. Participants identified barriers related to the distance to the laboratories and infrequent transportation, as well as systems to action results and difficulties in physically locating patients due to high mobility between communities and low levels of community knowledge due to high staff turnover and no AHP in some services.

Sexual behaviours, sex toy and sexual safety methods reported by women who have sex with women and men 
Vanessa Schick, Brian Dodge, Barbara Van Der Pol, Aleta Baldwin and J. Dennis Fortenberry

Women who reported recent genital contact with a woman and man (WSWM) in the past year were invited to participate in this mixed-method study. Participants (n=80) completed an online survey about their lifetime sexual behavior and safety strategies followed by a detailed in-person timeline follow back interview (the SEQUENCE© calendar) about their sexual partnerships over the previous year. Participants reported very diverse sexual repertoires with few reporting latex barrier method use outside of penile intercourse. The relationship between various behaviours and STI is also explored. Results suggest the importance of sexual safety messages that highlight barrier method use during diverse sexual activities (beyond penile intercourse) regardless of partner gender.

Risk of cardiovascular disease in HIV-positive Queensland men receiving combined antiretroviral therapy 
Luis Furuya-Kanamori, Mark D. Kelly and Samantha J. McKenzie

The prevalence of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and the risk of a cardiovascular event occurring within 5 years were estimated in Queensland men older than 35 years receiving cART. Additionally, the agreement between the Australian Absolute CVD Risk Calculator and the Data Collection on Adverse Effects of Anti-HIV Drugs Study (D:A:D) 5-year Estimated CVD Risk Equation were assessed. Queensland men with cART-treated HIV are experiencing high prevalence of CVD and are at moderate risk of a CVD event in the next 5 years. A substantial agreement between the Australian Absolute CVD Risk Calculator and the D:A:D 5-year Estimated CVD Risk Equation was identified.

Women’s views on human papillomavirus self-sampling: focus groups to assess acceptability, invitation letters and a test kit in the Australian setting 
Farhana Sultana, Robyn Mullins, Michael Murphy, Dallas R. English, Julie A. Simpson, Kelly T. Drennan, Stella Heley, C. David Wrede, Julia M. L. Brotherton, Marion Saville and Dorota M. Gertig

The study provides insights into the information needs of never- and under-screened women and their opinion of HPV self-sampling as a possible alternative to Pap test. We identify perceived barriers to HPV self-sampling through focus group evaluation of communication materials and the test kit for a trial of HPV self-sampling in Australia. Such information is timely given that many countries, including Australia, will be moving to primary HPV testing where self-sampling for HPV testing will be reserved for those who decline a physician-collected sample.

Human papillomavirus prevalence to age 60 years among Australian women prevaccination 
Julia M. L. Brotherton, John R. Condon, Peter B. McIntyre, Sepehr N. Tabrizi, Michael Malloy, Suzanne M. Garland and

In this study, we describe the prevalence of HPV at the cervix among Australian women before the commencement of the HPV vaccination program. Women aged 15 to 60 years attending health services for cervical screening between 2005 and 2008 were invited to participate. Liquid based cervical specimens were tested for 37 types of HPV using linear array. Among 1929 women aged 15–60 years, HPV prevalence peaked at 64% at age 15–20 years, then declined gradually to 12% at age 41–45 years, whereafter it rose to 19% in women 51–55 years then returned to 14% in 56–60 year olds. The shape of the prevalence curve we observed is similar to those from other Western populations. Variation in prevalence curves is likely due to differences in sexual behaviour between populations and over time, reactivation of HPV during perimenopause, and possibly the presence of cervical screening programs.

Lubricant use at last sexual encounter with a male partner: findings from a nationally representative sample of self-identified gay and bisexual men in the United States 
Brian Dodge, Randolph D. Hubach, Vanessa Schick, Debby Herbenick, Michael Reece, Stephanie A. Sanders and J. Dennis Fortenberry

Previous studies that have examined lubricant use among gay and bisexual men have done so in the context of sexual risk, relying on convenience sampling for participant recruitment. This study explores event-level lubricant use with most recent male partner and related factors among a nationally representative sample of self-identified gay and bisexual men from the United States. The majority of participants who used lubricant with their last male partner reported doing so during anal intercourse; bisexual men were less likely to use lubricant use than gay men. Future sexual health promotion programmes for gay and bisexual men should include information on lubricant use and its potential to facilitate both sexual protection as well as pleasure.

Early diagnosis of HIV among men who have sex with men in Western Australia: impact of a peer-led sexually transmissible infection testing service 
Byron C. Minas, Carolien M. Giele, Sue C. Laing, Lisa Bastian, Andrew W. Burry, Kurt J. Sales and Donna B. Mak

In July 2010, the Western Australia (WA) AIDS Council established the ‘M Clinic’, a peer-led STI testing service for men who have sex with men (MSM). Since the M Clinic commenced operation the number and proportion of MSM HIV notifications that were newly acquired in WA significantly increased with the peer-led clinic diagnosing 30% (n = 21) of all newly acquired HIV among MSM in WA in the 2011–2013 period. A peer-led approach to HIV testing should be considered in order to achieve early diagnosis and treatment of HIV among MSM.

Perception of primary male sexual partners’ characteristics and women’s history of sexually transmissible infections in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam 
Ly T. Tran, Thanh C. Bui, Vy T. Pham, Christine M. Markham, Alan G. Nyitray, Michael D. Swartz, Loi T. Tran and Lu-Yu Hwang

Evidence regarding whether male partners’ characteristics can influence women’s likelihood of getting sexually transmissible infections (STIs) is insufficient and inconsistent. We found that an increased risk for STIs in women was associated with both individual characteristics and their primary male partner’s behavioural risk factors. Therefore, primary male partners’ risk factors should be included in STI risk assessments, treatment and interventions for women.

Influence of sexual arousability on partner communication mediators of condom use among African American female adolescents 
Andrea Swartzendurber, Sarah H. Murray, Jessica M. Sales, Robin R. Milhausen, Stephanie A. Sanders, Cynthia A. Graham, Ralph J. DiClemente and Gina M. Wingood

Among African American female adolescents, this study examined associations between arousability, one’s propensity for sexual arousal, and sexual partner communication mediators of condom use. Greater arousability was found to be associated with reduced levels of each measure of partner communication assessed. Traditional sexual risk reduction interventions typically fail to recognise aspects of pleasure and enjoyment in sexual experiences. A public orientation towards sexual health may decrease stigma and facilitate sexual partner communication and may ultimately be more effective than traditional approaches in reducing high rates of sexually transmitted infections among American adolescents.

Internet sex-seeking is inconsistently linked with sexual risk in men who have sex with men: systematic review of within-subjects comparisons 
blank image
G. J. Melendez-Torres, Elizabeth Nye and Chris Bonell
pp. 183-187

In this systematic review, we investigated within-subjects comparisons of sexual risk behaviour in encounters reported by men who have sex with men where these reports presented associations between internet sex-seeking and sexual risk behaviour. We found that internet sex-seeking and sexual risk behaviour were inconsistently linked in this population. However, more research that addresses current contexts of internet sex-seeking, such as through smartphone apps, is needed to better understand these associations.

Robyn Williams, Chris Lawrence, Edward Wilkes, Maurice Shipp, Barbara Henry, Sandra Eades, Bradley Mathers, John Kaldor, Lisa Maher and Dennis Gray
pp. 188-193

A cross sectional survey of 244 Noongar people aged 16–30 years was conducted. The survey aimed to describe sexual health behaviour, alcohol and other drug use and health service utilisation. Although some respondents engaged in risky sexual behaviour, alcohol and other drug use or both, most did not. Particularly encouraging was the engagement of respondents with the health care system, especially among those engaging in risky behaviours.

pp. 200-206

This article describes findings of a qualitative study about Australian 15–20 year olds’ exposure to pornography. Findings reveal a potential link between exposure to pornography, young men’s sexual expectations and pressure experienced by young women to conform to what is being viewed in porn. Concern was also expressed about gendered norms that reinforce men’s subordination of women.

Seeking sex online: social and sexual risk factors among adolescent and young gay and bisexual men

Guy Shilo and Zohar Mor
pp. 217-223

The current study aimed to identify behavioural and identity formation variables associated with seeking sex online among 445 gay and bisexual adolescents and youth. Nearly half of the sample used the Internet for seeking sex, which was correlated with substance use and sexual risk behaviour. Seeking sex online was found as a predictor for sexual risk behaviour beyond all other predictors. Seeking sex online is influenced by the gay sub-culture climate and peer group relationships, rather than by social stressor variables related to sexual orientation formation processes, or by the subject’s general mental health condition

Depression and sexual risk behaviours among people who inject drugs: a gender-based analysis 
blank image
Tyler Pettes, Thomas Kerr, Pauline Voon, Paul Nguyen, Evan Wood and Kanna Hayashi
pp. 224-230

Although many people who inject drugs (PID) contend with comorbidities, including high rates of mental illness, limited attention has been given to the differences in comorbidities among men and women or the potential links between psychiatric disorders and HIV risk behaviours. We sought to longitudinally examine associations between depression and HIV-related sexual risk behaviours among PID, stratified by gender. In multivariate analyses, after adjustment for potential social, demographic and behavioural confounders, more severe depressive symptomology remained independently associated with engaging in unprotected sex and having multiple sexual partners among women, but was only marginally associated with having multiple sexual partners among men. These findings call for improved integration of psychiatric screening and treatment services within existing public health initiatives designed for PID, particularly for women.

Paula Matich, Caroline Harvey, Priscilla Page, Karen Johnston, Clare Jukka, Jane Hollins and Sarah Larkins
pp. 231-239

Young people’s perceptions of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services are investigated through a cross-sectional study via eight reference group meetings and an electronic survey in four sites: Atherton Tablelands, Rockhampton, Toowoomba and Townsville. Data from 391 rural and regional participants was precoded for bivariate comparisons involving χ2 and confidence interval tests. Results showed that the most valued markers of quality in SRH services defined by young people all related to staff characteristics: friendly, easy to talk to staff, who were good listeners and did not judge them. Training and retention of staff with these attributes can improve SRH service provision for youth.

The composition of combination antiretroviral therapy has changed over time, but the impact this change has had on the prevalence of lipodystrophy is unclear. Our study compares the prevalence of lipodystrophy, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease risk in HIV-infected males in 1998 and in 2010, 12 years later at the same institution– whilst lipodystrophy prevalence appears to be declining – metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease risk are increasing.

Catriona Douglas, Rachel Deacon and Julie Mooney-Somers
pp. 249-256

This study shows Pap smear test rates among community-attached lesbian, bisexual and queer (LBQ) women in New South Wales (NSW) have changed little over time. The 3-year participation rate was similar to the general NSW population. Significant predictors for ever having attended for a Pap smear test included ever having had a sexually transmissible infection test, being out about sexuality to a regular doctor and ever having had sex with men. Findings highlight the importance of health providers providing a safe and welcoming environment for LBQ women to openly discuss their health.

pp. 257-262

The uptake of HIV-related intervention services by female sex workers (FSWs) is low in China and is particularly low among young and recently started FSWs in Shenzhen, South China. The uptake of HIV-related intervention services is positively associated with good HIV knowledge and consistent condom use. Programs to promote uptake of HIV-related intervention services by FSWs are largely needed, and should target young and recently started FSWs more intensively.

‘Drug users stick together’: HIV testing in peer-based drop-in centres among people who inject drugs in Thailand 
blank image
Lianping Ti, Kanna Hayashi, Sattara Hattirat, Paisan Suwannawong, Karyn Kaplan and Thomas Kerr
pp. 263-268

Between July 2011 and June 2012, 22 in-depth interviews were conducted with people who inject drugs (PWID) participating in the Mitsampan Community Research Project in Bangkok, Thailand. Semi-structured interviews explored willingness to access rapid HIV testing delivered by a healthcare professional or a trained peer within peer-based drop-in centres. Many PWID in this study sample noted the value of a peer-based approach to receiving testing and indicated their willingness to access rapid HIV testing in peer-based drop-in centres. The findings from this study highlight the potential for novel peer-based methods to complement existing HIV services in an effort to improve access to testing among this population.

pp. 272-275

Women in the U.S. military report a high prevalence of sexual risk behaviours, such as binge drinking and new or multiple sexual partnerships. However, demographical differences pose challenges to making comparisons with civilians. In this study, two public-use datasets were used to compare prevalence of sexual risk behaviours between sexually active military and civilian women, after adjusting for demographic factors. It was found that women in the military reported a higher prevalence of binge drinking and new/multiple sexual partners as compared with civilians, which suggests that military women are a high-risk group and the military environment may at least partially facilitate these risk behaviours.
