Lessons learnt from the first Australian ‘pop-up' HIV testing site 
Marianne Gale, Jo Holden, Samara Kitchener, Vickie Knight, Anna McNulty, Karen Price, Craig Leeman, Philip Cunningham, Andrew Hayen and C. Raina MacInytre

Lessons learnt from the first ‘pop-up’ HIV testing site in Australia suggest that highly visible testing activity was acceptable in the context of inner Sydney and that pop-up sites may be a useful adjunct to clinic-based models. Further evaluation of alternative testing models is needed to inform the scale up of HIV testing in Australia.

Risk and vulnerability of key populations to HIV infection in Iran; knowledge, attitude and practises of female sex workers, prison inmates and people who inject drugs 
Razieh Khajehkazemi, AliAkbar Haghdoost, Soodabeh Navadeh, Hamidreza Setayesh, Leily Sajadi, Mehdi Osooli and Ehsan Mostafavi

In this study data of three national surveys conducted in 2009 and 2010 and included 2546 people who inject drugs (PWID), 872 female sex workers (FSW) and 5530 prison inmates were compared in relation to knowledge, attitude, and practises towards HIV. Approximately 20% of prisoners and FSW had a history of injecting drugs. Among all participants who have injected drugs, prisoners had the highest unsafe injecting behaviour at the last injection (61%), followed by FSW (11%) and PWID (3%). Despite major efforts to control the HIV epidemic in Iran, the level of risk and vulnerability among prisoners, FSW and PWID is still high.

Chanelle Stowers, Loretta Healey and Catherine C. O'Connor

In 2013 a public metropolitan sexual health service alerted HIV- positive patients to the availability of free influenza vaccination using Short Message Service broadcasting This resulted in a significant increase in uptake of the vaccination when compared with the previous year when individual telephone calls were made.

‘Living a life less ordinary’: exploring the experiences of Australian men who have acquired HIV overseas 
Graham Brown, Jeanne Ellard, Julie Mooney-Somers, Garrett Prestage, Gemma Crawford and Trish Langdon

In Australia, increasing rates of HIV infections acquired overseas have been reported, particularly among men. This qualitative study explored experiences and risk perceptions of 14 Australian men who acquired HIV while living or travelling overseas. Four domains of experience were identified: (1) a fantasy realised, (2) escaping and finding a new self or life, (3) living a life less ordinary, and (4) living local but still an outsider. Appealing to desired experiences, such as connection to local culture or sustaining a new or adventurous life, may provide important implications for health promotion programs and policy.

Influence of sexual sensation-seeking on factors associated with risky sexual behaviour among African-American female adolescents 
Tiarney D. Ritchwood, Dolly C. Penn, Ralph J. DiClemente, Eve S. Rose and Jessica M. Sales

The following study sought to explicate the influence of sexual sensation-seeking, partner age and communication, and sexual attitudes on African-American adolescent females’ reports of sexual risk behaviours. Our results demonstrated the significance of antecedents of sexual risk to subsequent sexual risk behaviours. Future research is needed to further understand how contextual factors, such as relationship status, dynamics, and sexual decision-making influence the identified relations.

Who‘s cheating? Agreements about sexual exclusivity and subsequent concurrent partnering in Australian heterosexual couples 
Juliet Richters, Wendy Heywood, Marian K. Pitts, Julia M. Shelley, Judy M. Simpson, Kent Patrick and Anthony M. A. Smith

An Australian national representative sample of people aged 16–64 years in regular relationships completed telephone interviews, including questions about sexual exclusivity (i.e. whether they would have sex with anyone else). The vast majority (96%) expected their relationship to be exclusive (monogamous). However, only 48% of men and 64% of women had discussed the matter and explicitly agreed. Only 1% reported open relationships. A year later, most respondents (93%) were still in the same relationship, among whom 4% of men and 2% of women had had sex with someone else; most of them were in relationships that were expected to be monogamous.

Association between known recent HIV infections and methamphetamine use (ASK HIM study) in Melbourne between 2011 and 2013: a case-control study 
Beng Eu and Norman Roth

There has been an increase in new HIV infections in Australia over the past 3 years mainly in men who have sex with men. The ASK HIM study looks at the association between HIV cases diagnosed in Victoria between 2011 and 2013 in men who have sex with men (MSM) and methamphetamine use by comparing usage rates in this group with usage rates in a control group.

Tuberculosis (TB)-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome in TB-HIV co-infected patients in Malaysia: prevalence, risk factors, and treatment outcomes 
Hong Yien Tan, Yean Kong Yong, Sin How Lim, Sasheela Ponnampalavanar, Sharifah F. S. Omar, Yong Kek Pang, Adeeba Kamarulzaman, Patricia Price, Suzanne M. Crowe and Martyn A. French

This is the first reported study to examine the incidence of, risk factors for, and consequences of tuberculosis (TB)-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (TB-IRIS) in HIV patients from Malaysia. Approximately 9% of HIV-TB patients who commenced antiretroviral therapy developed TB-IRIS. Disseminated TB was the major risk factor. Patient survival and recovery of CD4 T cell counts were similar in TB-IRIS patients and HIV/TB patients who did not develop TB-IRIS.

pp. 383-396

The Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships surveyed a representative sample of 20 094 Australians using random-digit dialling of landline and mobile phones in 2012–13. Telephone interviews asked about health, sexual behaviour and attitudes, and details such as age, occupation and education. The refusal rate of 34% was no higher than for surveys on other topics but, as in most surveys, people with higher education and higher status occupations were more likely to take part. Most people said they were not at all or only slightly embarrassed by the questionnaire and almost all said they were 90%–100% honest in their answers

pp. 397-405

This study of a population-representative sample of 20 094 Australians aged 16–69 years revealed positive attitudes toward premarital sex, abortion and homosexual behaviour. The data also indicate that over the last decade there has been a shift towards less tolerance of sex outside a committed relationship, but greater acceptance of homosexual behaviour.

First vaginal intercourse and oral sex among a representative sample of Australian adults: the Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships

pp. 406-415

We surveyed a representative sample of 20 094 men and women aged 16–69 years in 2012–13 and asked them about their first experiences of vaginal and oral sex. Since 2001–02 there has been no further decline in the median age of first sex. Use of contraception at the time of first vaginal sex is very high. Sexual experimentation appears to have increased for all ages, with overall increases in ever having had oral and anal sex, but particularly so for those aged 16–19 years.

pp. 416-426

We surveyed a representative sample of 20 094 men and women aged 16–69 years in 2012–2013 and asked them about their heterosexual experience and recent heterosexual encounters. Reporting multiple partners was significantly associated with being younger, being bisexual, living in major cities, having a lower income, having a blue-collar occupation and not being married. The proportion of respondents reporting ever having had oral sex or anal intercourse increased significantly since the last survey. At the last heterosexual encounter, 91.9% of men and 66.2% of women had an orgasm, oral sex was reported in only ~one in four encounters and anal intercourse was uncommon.

pp. 427-438

This study examines key characteristics of heterosexual regular sexual relationships in a representative sample of 20 094 Australian residents aged 16–69 years and identifies significant changes since the First Australian Study of Health and Relationships in 2001–02. A high proportion of our respondents (74%) were in heterosexual regular relationships, with most reporting very high levels of physical and emotional satisfaction in their relationships. Less than 5% of respondents in a relationship of more than a year’s duration reported having had sex with someone other than their partner in the past year and most expected the relationship to be monogamous. In general, the findings were similar to those 11 years ago, but the average frequency of sex had fallen from 1.8 times a week to 1.4 times a week.

pp. 439-450

About one in seven (13.5%) of women and one in 15 men (6.5%, P < 0.001) reported a lifetime history of homosexual experience. Almost one in five women aged 16–29 years reported homosexual experience. For women but not men, there was a significant increase in the proportion reporting same-sex experience since the first Australian Study of Health and Relationships. Among homosexually identified people, the number of recent same-sex partners was much higher in men than women, with 26% of men but no women reporting 10 or more same-sex partners in the last 12 months.

Sexual identity, sexual attraction and sexual experience: the Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships

pp. 451-460

The Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships asked 20 094 respondents whether they thought of themselves as heterosexual, gay/lesbian or bisexual. It also asked whether they had ever had sexual experiences with males or females, and whether they had felt sexually attracted to males or females. This paper looks at the relationship between answers to these three questions. Most people (>95%) identified as heterosexual, but 9% of men and 19% of women had some history of same-sex attraction and/or experience. Many gay men (53%) and lesbians (76%) had some experience with an opposite-sex partner.

pp. 461-471

The Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships interviewed a representative sample of 20 094 men and women aged 16–69 years by telephone. This paper reports answers to questions about masturbation, a range of solo and partnered sexual practices, and paid sex in the year before the interview. Men were more likely than women to masturbate and to look at pornography, but women were more likely to have used a sex toy, such as a vibrator. Fewer than 3% of people were involved in online sex, swinging, group sex, BDSM (bondage and discipline, ‘sadomasochism’ or dominance and submission) or fisting, but other anal practices (fingering 17%, licking 6%) were less rare. One man in six had ever paid for sex, but only 2% had done so in the past year.

Richard O. de Visser , Paul B. Badcock , Chris Rissel , Juliet Richters , Anthony M. A. Smith , Andrew E. Grulich and Judy M. Simpson
pp. 472-480

This study of a population-representative sample of 20 094 Australians aged 16–69 years provided up-to-date data on how common sexual coercion is and how it affects people. Overall, 4% of men and 22% of women had been forced or frightened into sexual activity: 2% of men and 12% of women reporting that this happened during childhood. Men and women who had been coerced had poorer physical, psychological and sexual wellbeing. Few people had talked to others about their experiences of sexual coercion and fewer had talked to a professional.

pp. 481-494

In the Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships, about one in six people reported a lifetime history of a sexually transmissible infection, and 1.1% of men and 2.7% of women reported one in the last 12 months. Knowledge of the transmission and health consequences of sexually transmissible infection improved substantially between 2002 and 2013. Approximately one in six women and one in eight men reported they had been tested for a sexually transmissible infection in the past year.

Safer sex and condom use: findings from the Second Australian Study of Health and Relationships

pp. 495-504

This study of a representative sample of 20 094 Australians aged 16–69 years revealed that although most people have used a condom at some time in their lives, few people used condoms in their recent sexual encounters. Condom use during people’s most recent sexual encounters was related to younger age, having sex with someone other than a regular partner and not using other contraception. Condom use appears to have become more common in the last decade.

Change and stasis in sexual health and relationships: comparisons between the First and Second Australian Studies of Health and Relationships

pp. 505-509

The Australian Study of Health and Relationships (ASHR2) was first conducted in 2001–02 (ASHR1) and repeated in 2012–13 (ASHR2). In addition to providing data on current patterns of beliefs and behaviour among a representative sample of Australian adults, ASHR2 allowed analyses of change and stasis since ASHR1. This paper summarises comparisons of ASHR1 and ASHR2 findings and considers their implications for sexual health strategy and policy making.
